The first, and most important, design change for our Lambda was the inclusion of a blue dial. To create a pleasant contrast, we also decided to use gold-colored writing on the dial.
By far the most distinctive feature of every Lambda is its enormous power reserve subdial. This, of course, is to bring attention to the incredible 84-hour power reserve of its DUW 1001 manual wind movement. While divisive, we’ve always found this power reserve to be a wonderful example of German design, as well as a breath of fresh air in the otherwise stodgy world of high- end dress watches. The Lambda doesn’t aspire to be yet another Calatrava alternative, but rather, to be distinctively Nomos, and it succeeds thanks to touches like this one.
