Both are hand-wound and feature an elegant midnight blue dial for the very first time. One is a unisex 35 mm in diameter, while the other is a tick larger, at 38 mm. This pairing would be a wonderful present for a couple, although each watch has distinct charms that make it unique.

Tangente has become a design classic since its initial release over a quarter of a century ago. Its Bauhaus-inspired aesthetics are straightforward and angular, created according to the principle that “form follows function.” Subtle details are what reveal its charm. For example, gold accents provided by the hands and typography not only harmonize beautifully with the beige velour leather strap, but also give the smaller version of Tangente midnight blue an appealing warmth—and festive sparkle. By contrast,  Tangente 38 midnight blue features exclusively silver hands and typography, which coordinate beautifully with the stainless steel case and anthracite velour leather strap.

The metallic accents on both timepieces are framed by the deep blue of their dials.

Both of these fine mechanical timepieces are powered by the Alpha calibre, handcrafted by NOMOS in Glashütte. This highly precise hand-wound calibre is also wonderfully finished—with sunburst polishing on the ratchet wheel, Glashütte ribbing on the three-quarter plate, and perlage on the base plate, which can be enjoyed through the sapphire crystal glass back. These traditional features draw on a rich heritage: The town of Glashütte, tucked away in the hills of rural Saxony, is the ticking heart of German watchmaking. Famous around the world for its high-quality timepieces, it has flourished since German reunification in 1990—which also happens to be the year in which NOMOS was founded.
