PRESS RELEASE: Ace Jewelers and @NomiesForLife NOMOS Club Campus 38 #NomiesForLife, a limited edition of 50 pieces celebrating the watch collectors community.
Wednesday, October 28th 2020 – Ace Jewelers and @NomiesForLife, the prime NOMOS Instagram collectors community account, are proud to introduce the NOMOS Club Campus 38 #NomiesForLife, a limited edition of 50 pieces.
For its fifth NOMOS limited edition, team Ace Jewelers sought the expertise of longtime friend & watch collector Michiel, founder of the @NomiesForLife NOMOS Instagram community. Together they worked with NOMOS’ design team to create a watch that reflects the passion and friendship that fuels the watch collecting community. The watch? None other than the Club, Michiel’s favourite model as well as his first NOMOS - purchased the same day Ace announced its partnership with the Glashuette-based watch brand. The result is the Club Campus 38 #NomiesForLife, a limited edition of 50 pieces.
The NOMOS Club Campus 38 #NomiesForLife is based on the template provided by the Club Campus 38. The dial is a deeper shade of black rather than the usual anthracite, with a contrasting sub dial for the seconds. The hour markers are done in white luminova with a bright blue outline, the latter being Michiel’s favourite color. It is delivered with a black Shell Horween Cordovan strap and two complimentary textile straps, one matching the black dial, and another complimenting the blue highlights.
Michiel, founder of @NomiesForLife says: “To see my ideas come to life in this limited edition is a dream come true. NOMOS was on my radar for years, but I somehow never took the leap until Ace Jewelers acquired its dealership.
I got the idea for the @NomiesForLife account when I shared my passion for NOMOS with friends I got to know through watch meetups. By creating the @NomiesForLife account I got to connect to even more NOMOS enthusiasts.
The @NomosForLife account not only reflects my passion for NOMOS, but also that of a lot of fellow enthusiast from around the world. To be able to release a limited edition for this channel is the perfect way to expres and celebrate our shared passion for NOMOS”.
Dale of Ace Jewelers adds: “The #NomiesForlife is our fifth limited edition with NOMOS, but it is the first time that we’ve tapped into the community for input. Michiel is a prolific and knowledgeable collector and it’s been great fun to see his ideas come to fruition. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the result. A shared passion for watches often leads to friendships across borders that last a lifetime, and the Club #NomiesForLife embodies this spirit”.
The Club #NomiesForLife is powered by NOMOS’ caliber Alpha. This hand-wound movement is manufactured in-house and features a power reserve of 43 hours. Its Glashütte-style finishing can be admired via the see-through case back. As is now customary with Ace Jewelers' limited editions, the price remains identical to that of the base model.
