Simplicity is often the key to brilliant design. When it comes to watches, there is a fine balance to find between simplified aesthetic and readability. The Tangomat from German manufacturer Nomos is a nice example of wristwatch design well executed. The lines are clean and the dial is clear. Though free from any design artifact the hands are heat treated to give them a blue aspect.
In addition to its prestigious internals, the Tangomat features a sapphire front crystal and an optional sapphire crystal at the back so you can admire the movement beating.
The watch is available with a white or black dial. In addition to the basic version pictured above, Nomos offers variations with date and a beautiful GMT model with second time zone and date.
The base tangomat starts at $2700. The GMT plus shown below will set you back $4570.
