Look over the watchmakers' shoulders

Plenty of tradition and handcraft—combined with high-tech, where it outperforms handcraft: That is NOMOS Glashütte. All our movements are built in-house and by ourselves in Glashütte. This also applies to our watches—Tangente, Orion, Zürich and all the other models—many of which are already considered classics. You can find out how we do this by visiting us in Glashütte and taking a tour. In the meantime, this short film can give you a first impression of what we do.

Why is it in Short Films and not Documentaries or Science?

My hands are too big and clumsy to hold those tiny parts.

#4 My suggestion then is don't go into the watchmaking industry, just a thought :S

I don't understand the price. Are the machines to produce such tiny parts that expensive? Do you need 2 month to produce a single watch?

I appreciate the handcraft, but all of these watches are for people who have problems to find something else they can buy.

#7 It's all about the handcraftmanship and quality of the materials used. Like a pair of shoes... if they are handmade and made of fine leather they're going to be more expensive.

Don't forget that these watches will last FOREVER if well taken care of and passed trought generations.

The 15.000€ watch (that I would never buy) has parts made of 18k white gold, sapphire, silver and rhodium.

On the other side, the one below for 1.600€ (that I would buy), it's still a lot of money, but you have a lot of quality.

#7 I prefer the rugged look of my stainless Submariner to those fancy dress watches.

#7 ....aaaaaaaand this video has pretty much 0 handcraftmanship displayed in it. Using tweezers to move something from location a) to location b) is not handcraftmanship.
