The feminine side of the trademark Nomos minimalism gets some nice rose gold treatment.
As the name suggests, the smallest Metro model to date measures only 33 mm in diameter, yet, all the usual Nomos vibe fits this tiny package perfectly. The clever color-scheme with super clean white dial shining against the subtle indices and the rose gold of the case and hands makes the most of the less-is-more approach. Some may call this design too-safe, others may call it elegant and timeless. Anyway, it’s definitely what the Nomos crowd is up to, and there’s not too many ladies’ models available to choose from, even more so in precious metals. Bear in mind, it’s only the second Metro with a rose gold case since the launch of the collection in 2014.
The Nomos Metro Rose Gold 33 is driven by the hand-wound time-only Alpha caliber with hours, minutes, small seconds and a 43-hour power reserve. And while the selling point here is obviously the looks – don’t forget the gorgeous domed sapphire crystal and velour leather strap – the mechanical part, visible from the transparent caseback is almost equally satisfying. The Nomos Metro Rose Gold 33 is not a limited edition, however the piece will be available only at selected retailers. The price is CHF7200.
