iF Design Award for Tangente Sport by NOMOS Glashütte

NOMOS Glashütte: Tangente Sport

For the ninth time in a row: The Saxon watch manufacturer NOMOS Glashütte wins the renowned design prize for the Tangente Sport model.

iF Design Award 2020

78 international experts have decided and awarded Tangente Sport by NOMOS Glashütte the iF Design Award 2020. There were 7298 candidates from 56 countries. The award is a globally recognized trademark and has been honoring outstanding design achievements for 67 years.

Latest automatic watch

Tangente Sport, the manufature’s latest automatic watch, is based on the classic Tangente, but is more robust and sporty. The case with screw-down crown resembles a safe that protects the innovative neomatik movement. The white silver-plated dial is adorned with an extra-large date, luminous paint on hands and hour-markers, and the lettering “1000 feet”; a reference to the special water-resistance. Also extremely sturdy and extremely comfortable to wear: the NOMOS metal bracelet.

The watch is also available with a blue-black dial.

Long tradition

NOMOS Glashütte is part of a long tradition of German fine watchmaking. For 175 years, the best timepieces have been built in Glashütte, Saxony. As a German producer, the manufactory is the market leader. Manufactories are producers who, like NOMOS Glashütte, design and manufacture their own movements.

NOMOS Glashütte

NOMOS is proud to call Glashütte its home—a small town tucked away between forests and hills, south of Berlin and near Dresden, located in the eastern Ore Mountains. The timepieces made here are world famous, and the watchmakers also count among the very best of their kind.

Manufacturer of fine watches

Founded by Roland Schwertner in 1990, today NOMOS Glashütte is the largest manufacturer of mechanical timepieces in Germany: Nobody else produces more watches than this company.
