This watch is designed for metropolitan types with an eye for aesthetics. Metro, created by the Berlin-based designer Mark Braun, combines the finest precision with clear elegance, is sophisticated and always aware of its roots: This timepiece may be utterly cosmopolitan, but is also Glashütte through and through. The exquisite NOMOS swing system is ticking away inside—the in-house escapement, which caused a stir when it was launched.
Since its introduction in March 2014, Metro has won numerous prizes—including the German Design Award, the Good Design Award, and the iF Product Design Award. And the model family has grown: Metro 38 Datum and Metro 38 Datum stadtschwarz are a touch larger than the original version of Metro—and a little more minimalistic without the power reserve indicator. In the new neomatik series from NOMOS Glashütte, Metro is also available for the first time as an automatic.
