Nomos replica watches have historically tended towards smaller sizes, with 35m being the median, even for the recent neomatik line. Nomos has now upsized the neomatik, albeit modestly, with the At Work — a line of 14 watches with 39mm cases.
Made of the Tangente, Metro, Orion, and Tetra, the At Work is available in three different dial styles: the classic silver-plated finish, Nachtblau (or “night blue”), and an all-new, horizontally brushed Silvercut.
The most unusual dial finish to emerge from Nomos to date, Silvercut is a metallic silver created by a nine-step process where the blank is brushed, blasted, plated and lacquered.
Apart from the three standard dial finishes, the Orion At Work also features one additional option, the Weiss dial. Its Teutonic formality — an entirely white dial with silver indexes and hands — makes it perhaps the most corporate of the lot.
Like the vast majority of Nomos copy watches, all of the new models are stainless steel, except for the Metro in 18k rose gold. Until now, Nomos had only endowed luxe Lux and Lambda watches with gold cases, to complement the more elaborate movements. The rose gold Metro is the first of the simpler Nomos watches in gold (with the exception of some early Tangente models from perhaps 15 years ago).
All fake watches in the At Work collection are powered by the automatic ultra-thin cal. DUW 3001, which is equipped with the Nomos proprietary Swing System escapement and measures only 3.2mm high. As a result of the larger case size, however, the movement appears small from the back, and the sub-seconds sits close to the centre on the dial.
