How Nomos Makes In-House Movements for Less

For the money, Nomos produces one of the best watches with an in-house movement. Their lowest priced timepiece, the 36mm hand winding Club (picture above), retails at €1,080 (USD $1,226.72).

How do they do it? Nomos thinks of their manufacturing process as being more similar to the auto industry, as apposed to their luxurious competitors (i.e. A. Lange & Söhne). They focus on staying lean with industrial efficiencies, marketing, and administration. Basically, they channel their passion and long-term expertise into cutting costs and pleasing customers.

“And we don’t have a lot of different movements; we have very few that we produce in high numbers. And we have produced these for many, many years.” – Uwe Ahrendt, managing director and part owner of Nomos Glashütte

For all these reasons, Nomos is definitely in the running for my next watch!
