Nomos Tangente 38 'For Doctors Without Borders USA'

Why We Love It


The past several years, NOMOS has surged in popularity due to their minimalist and clean designs, attractive price points, and German origins. This special edition Tangente was released with the promise of donating $100 from each sale to the Doctors Without Borders, a non-profit that provides lifesaving medical service to those in need.

What's unique to this Tangente is the twelve hour marker is in red, "Doctors Without Borders" is printed below six. Additionally, "Special Edition Tangente for Doctors Without Borders United States of America" is engraved on the sapphire caseback. The 38mm case constructed from stainless steel sports a white dial with beautifully printed Arabic numerals. A sub-seconds dial is above six.

As a daily wearer, it offers all of the Bauhaus appeal that you could possibly want.

Featured with its original box, instructional booklet, sales receipt, cleaning cloth, and a genuine NOMOS cordovan strap. This is a great opportunity to own a special edition NOMOS for under retail.  

The Story

The little town of Glashütte, situated close to the eastern edge of Germany and home to only 7,000 people, is the birthplace of German watchmaking. Glashütte is home to brands like A. Lange & Söhne, Mühle, and Glashütte Original, all incredible brands in their own right. But there is another brand that calls this little area of Germany home, and that is NOMOS.

NOMOS was founded by Roland Schwertner on January 10th, 1990, two months after the fall of the Berlin Wall. For the next 15 years the company created multiple patents for watch components--like date mechanisms and power reserve indicators--all in preparation for the day they would build their own movements in-house. That day came in 2005 when the firm released the Tangomat, powered by an automatic caliber all their own, and at a price point that virtually no other manufacturer could touch.

As the years rolled on, NOMOS continued in that spirit of affordable self-sufficiency, one of creating in-house movements and selling their watches at prices that belie the care and quality of construction that go into producing them.
