Is it cheaper buying from an AD in Bangkok or direct from Nomos online?

Received their latest Nomos catalogue from Germany this evening.

Nomos even has their own postage stamps on the clear plastic cover.. how cool is that.....





Personal taste and preferences evolve over years, hopefully not 1 full circle otherwise it means we haven't learnt a single thing.

Z├╝rich blaugold

my personal view after owning the watch for just  few hours...

Diameter 39.7 mm -
ideal. no complaints at all. maybe due to the design and lugs, it is a proof that one does not need to go beyond 40mm

Dial - outstanding. the blue factor sealed the deal for me.

Strap:  Shell Cordovan black - got to be honest here...I am not a fan...maybe due to the age factor, I prefer something of a `softer' and less `crude' nature.

No pictures on this post though coz it is almost impossible to get a decent one given its blue dial (reflection issues using a handphone camera). Pathetic attempts seen in the Watch Gallery section.

That is all folks! At the end of the day, it is just a watch...and no regrets given the price paid, no regrets at all!

most us here love Nomos, but which model you prefer? and which would be your 2nd, 3rd buy??

for me:
1st: Tangomat
2nd: Ahoi

Then I would wait and see what model is coming out  :Laughing_on_floor:

I've fallen madly in love with the Tetra. Too bad it's described as "feminine" although it is supposed to be unisex.  ;)

Haven't paid much attention to Nomos but keep hearing it recently. During the Vintage GTG, JOS said he is planning to change his with a special one. Then I came across an online article where the writer said he was discussing with the owner of a >50 years old watch shop in Frankfurt and they both agreed that Nomos is the one to watch out for.

While window shopping at Schildergasse in Cologne today, I was looking at few Nomos models and was awe struck by the Lambda. So elegant yet simplistic and we'll-balanced  :thumbsup:. But the price stopped my hands from going for the wallet. EUR 13k+... although I found out later that it is in white gold.

That raised my curiosity and have been reading up on their website and MWF.

I manged to find this while on a trip to Germany. Lovely, understated, clean and classy. I changed out the original strap to a croc leather one as intended for this to be a dress watch...

This is the 38. Here is an old shot to show the slim profile of the watch...it really sits well under the cuff as a dress watch. It's light and really comfortable.

Yes it is...can only afford SS...this is the Orion series and it only comes in SS. Hand wind only, which is why it is so slim

I meant to say this is the SS back instead of sapphire back thus the slimmer profile by at least 1.5mm

Email them informing that you are in Malaysia, and tell them that VAT is not applicable in Malaysia.

They will then update the price for you minus VAT.

Sorry, misunderstood you. This is the sapphire back.

Sharing the reply from Nomos on the VAT. It seems we have to pay VAT if buying online.

---

Thank you for your e-mail. When ordering in the NOMOS Store, you receive the articles with customs duties and tax already paid. That means: the prices quoted on the product pages include value-added tax, customs duties, and all other price components of the respective product. German VAT does not apply and therefore we do not offer refunds.

The only way to receive a VAT refund would be to have the watch shipped to Germany and export it yourself to Malaysia - you will need to have the form stamped by German customs at the border. In this case, we could offer to refund the VAT.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us - we are always happy to be of assistance.

Cordial greetings from Glashuette,
