WATCHES of SWITZERLAND BRINGS TWO NEW WATCH BRANDS TO THE STABLE.
We’re very pleased to welcome two newcomers into the Watches of Switzerland stable this autumn. U-Boat and NOMOS Glashütte are two of the most promising up-and-coming watch brands in the world, and we’re very excited to have them on board.
U-Boat is a family-run Italian company specialising in oversized watches made in Switzerland. The brand has its roots in the 1940s, but was revitalised in the late 1990s and now offers a bold collection of sports and diver’s watches. The brand is phasing out its few remaining quartz models, and the collection will soon be entirely mechanical.
NOMOS Glashütte heralds from Germany’s most celebrated watchmaking town, which is also home to its Watches of Switzerland stablemate A. Lange & Söhne. NOMOS Glashütte watches are very minimal and design-focused, closely observing the form-follows-function principle, and all carry in-house movements. The latter is made all the more impressive by the collection’s very accessible price points, with watches starting from a little over £1,500.
