Tetra Petit Four
Square, delightful, in beautiful colors—NOMOS Glashütte is celebrating the start of spring with four new Tetra versions Glashütte/Berlin, March 2018
Be careful: These watches are not edible, even when they share their name with the classic French pastry and make a delicious impression. The NOMOS Petit Four series consists of four new Tetra versions that promise the most delightful wrists: Tetra Matcha, Azure, Pearl, and Grenadine.
Ticking within these new watches is the NOMOS caliber Alpha, renowned for its reliability and accuracy—and as always at NOMOS Glashütte, traditionally crafted by hand in Glashütte. Every individual movement is adjusted in six positions and features Glashütte ribbing, tempered blue screws, and NOMOS perlage.
In two of the four watches, the hand-wound caliber can be viewed at work through a sapphire crystal glass back. The two others, Tetra Matcha and Tetra Azure, offer space for a personalized engraving on their stainless steel backs—a love note, perhaps, or the address of your favorite French bakery.
NOMOS Glashütte likes to experiment with color in the classic model Tetra every now and then; the square shape of the case and its clear lines are the perfect setting. This time—and perhaps more beautifully than ever—grenadine red, pink (in Tetra Pearl), azure blue, and matcha green form a very contemporary quartet. With the contrasting shades of their typography and the fine accents of silver and gold of their hands, these watches are not only extraordinary mechanical timepieces, but pieces of jewelry as well.
