The Midnight Edition is a limited production Orion of 75 each for silver and gold accented models. It takes elements you know and love from the regular Orion, like the case and hands, but adds a gorgeous blue sunburst dial. The sunburst dial is, of course, where the Midnight Edition takes its name. It’s a gorgeous color because, depending on the lighting and angle, it shifts from a very dark blue, befitting its title, to a brighter, more eye-catching hue.

To maintain as dressy a look as possible, we decided not to use a date. Similar thinking was employed in choosing the 38mm case, which is a good all-purpose size for a modern dress watch. Like the Timeless Club II, the Midnight Edition Orion is powered by a modified Alpha hand wound movement, chosen to keep the watch thin. And it is thin, at just under 9mm, slipping underneath shirt cuffs without issue.

The modifications bring the Alpha up to a current-generation Nomos movement with the swing system escapement and blued hairspring.

But you’re not left out if you’re not looking for a dress watch. Our Timeless Club II is a sporty, but versatile option. Like the name suggests, the Club II is the follow-up to our sold-out Club. The biggest difference is the addition of a model with yellow accents, but both Club IIs retain the Deep Blue lacquer dial from their high-end sibling, the Lambda. Only 100 of each version of the Club II will be made.

Both Timeless Club IIs are interesting in that they have two different colors of lume. It’s also one of the very few Nomos models to have any lume at all, along with the Club Dunkel, and Ahoi. Another difference between the Club II and the original Timeless Club is that the new model doesn’t have a date, contributing to a cleaner looking dial.

The Club II uses a 38.5mm Club case, which is well loved for the curved lugs that make it among the most comfortable Nomos watches. The Club II uses the same movement we employ in the Midnight Edition Orion - the modified Alpha hand wound. Looking very closely, we can even see the blued hairspring.

    Not a bad choice for 2k. Perfectly sized at 38.5 mm, excellent proportions, simple but lovely hand wound caliber. Has lume which is rare for Nomos. Gifts are so so.

    • Yojimbo

      wow aren’t you entitled lol

      • IanE

        Well, I’m with Heekeeta (if the transliteration isn’t offensive?!), the only bit that isn’t clutter is the strap-changing tool – and it doesn’t take long as a watch nerd to acquire more of those than you will ever need!

        • Yojimbo

          sure it’s largely superfluous and most people would probably prefer a markdown from the usual sales price instead of tchotchke (check their website they’re full price with add ons) but it’s hardly worth complaining about

      • ??????

        Just joking. But would prefer a a bunch of extra straps

        • Yojimbo

          yeah 100% that would be an informed and valued gift they could give that more ppl would care about, gott im himmel I love extra bands

  • Raymond Wilkie

    38.5mm ! ………….do i look like a lady ?

    • Have you actually tried on a nomos 38.5mm? The 41mm actually feels too big for my 7” wrist. And my daily watches are 44-48mm.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        Something can’t look bigger than it is and anything under 42mm look super girly on me.

        • Sure it can. A 40mm watch with a 38mm white dial will look bigger than the same watch with a 30mm black dial.

          • Lincolnshire Poacher

            True. My pilot watch has a super thin bezel ~1.5mm. Its 42mm wide but it easily looks as big as my 44mm divers. Dial width has an ‘optical’ effect on how we perceive the size of the watch. (If that makes sense).

    • Keep in mind that the lugs are long, so they appear a little larger on the wrist than their dimensions suggest. But I’m with ya, a 40 to 42 mm case would work for me.

    • Bill W

      Depends on the lighting.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        It would have to be pitch dark !

    • Berndt Norten

      Dude looks like a lady

      • Raymond Wilkie

        Don’t up this !

        • Bill W,

          Up yours? 🙂

    • Sheez Gagoo
      • Raymond Wilkie

        That looks nothing like me.

    • IVA the LT

      It wears larger; I almost pulled the trigger on the 36mm but decided that it was too small.

      38.5mm may make me pull the trigger on the one with the yellow accents…

  • SuperStrapper

    Ladies size aside, the sub seconds ruins the appearance of these watches.

  • Juan-Antonio Garcia

    Beautiful pieces. Love the clean design in the Blue Midnights. More Bauhaus and Nomos would have to change its name to Kandinzky. Which is not bad.

  • Paul Elam

    Momos pieces are terrificly pristine and beautiful dress pieces It’s terrific that they more offer more watches that could be considered a bit sportier to open the brand up to a new target set. Well done!

  • Bill W

    I’d rather have a meal than a notebook. And since I’m a 19th Century street urchin, alls I would need is a ha’loaf of bread I reckon.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    I love Nomos. A lot of value for your money. Real beauties. I remember in 2004, when I was at Baselworld, I went to the Nomos stand (at this time they had peseux movements I think) and a nice young lady came and smiled at me, and immediately I said, that I`m not a retailer, so don`t waste your time on me, and she said, that it doesn`t matter (!!!AT BASELWORLD!!! Normal reaction: “Föck off s`il vous plait, sale pièce de merde”) and she gave me a Nomos memory card game. We flirted a little bit, then I went my ways, because I had some work to do. Nice memories. Still have that game. Nice to see, how the developped. They deserve al their succes.

    • Lincolnshire Poacher

      Cool story

      • Sheez Gagoo

        Thanks. And 100% true. Maybe a little bit more of effort and patience, it would have ended like one of this stories in Penthouse.

        • DanW94

          You should have pulled out A Wange (thats) Longe and showed her your hand polished balance cock….just saying…..

          • Bill W,

            Well if that aint a rattrapante dropper then I don’t know what would be.

    • IG

      I remember in 2002 when I went to a Nomos retailer and the nice lady was grinnig like a Cheshire cat because I bought a Tangente Leipzig. It’s still here …somewhere but it’s so small (35mm!!!) I couldn’t find it…

    • The first time I went to BaselWorld in 2013 I also went to the Nomos booth (with ABTW’s James Stacey) and the young lady who met with us was also very nice. Their watches are generally a bit too minimalist for me but I do appreciate them for what they are and as a moderately sized dress watch they are impressive. Nice that they have in-house calibers and I really liked the mesh/woven fabric strap on the watch I tried on that year.

      The only downside is that, perhaps by being a smaller company with limited North American distribution, they were not very well geared up for making demo watches available for review back home (or in Canada for James Stacey in this case). I alsohave a Nomos drafting set I’m pretty sure.

      • Sheez Gagoo

        Have you ever thought of distributing them?

        • Actually, I was going to do a swag giveaway after BaselWorld but never got around to it.

      • The Reclusive Boogur T. Wang

        No tote bag?

        • I think I have a bright orange TAG drawstring bag around here somewhere. Not exactly a unicorn fur cashmere lined Patek bag, but then what is.

        • Grumpy Cat

          Sorry to change the subject, but I noticed you were Deplorable, then Victorious and now Reclusive. Curious to know what this means and what changed you from Deplorable, Victorious and now Reclusive.

          • The Reclusive Boogur T. Wang

            Deplorable – during the U.S. Presidential election according to the Hildabeast (she lost)
            Victorious – post-election
            Reclusive – personal choice – it may change

          • Berndt Norten

            I penned u a ditty above
            Diddy

          • The Reclusive Boogur T. Wang

            That’s Boogur T. you poetic rascal…;)

          • Berndt Norten

            He never gives out
            And he never gives in
            He changes his name
            But he’s always
            A Boogur to me

    • Bill W,

      It’s better than going home with Old Man Meistersinger, or joining the Mile High Club with the Bremont Boys.

      • Bill W,

        They said, “Let’s take this in-house.”
        She asked, “Have you ever done this before?”
        They said, “Well, maybe. Depends what you mean by in-house.”

        • Berndt Norten

          Four score
          (And maybe more)
          Years from now

          The grad seminars
          Where they do the parley vous
          Read Foucault
          Habermas too

          Will surely ponder
          ‘Wat did dat 50 Cent fella mean’?
          When he invited us
          ‘In Da Club’?

      • DanW94

        You got to watch out for Old Man Meistersinger, he’s very touchy, feeling. The women say he’s all hand…

        • Bill W,

          …just the one though
          Old Slow Hand

          • DanW94

            Exactly : )

        • Berndt Norten

          Get out da way
          Old Dan Tucker…..

  • Lincolnshire Poacher

    On the Nomos site the pen is £17 and a set of notebooks is £24.

    • ??????

      You forgot the bookmark!

      • Lincolnshire Poacher

        Strap changer is £39….. THIRTY NINE POUNDS!! For essentially a small screw driver with a divot in the head!
        Can’t find the bookmark. But I know every national trust house in England sells a unique to them leather one for £2.99. So its probably £20.

        • ??????

          £39 for a strap changing tool!!! I bought my Seiko 5 for same money! Yes, I spent exactly £39 for a fine mechanical watch which is still working flawlessly. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a5cd022d289de415fbc6e1852751bf3acf8535fb0df8dc379411a87a8d8a619c.jpg
          And I used a kitchen knife to change the strap 🙂 I must be mad 🙂

          • Lincolnshire Poacher

            That’s a genuinely amazing green. Seiko make a gazillion different types of those introductory Seiko Fives. But I’m really impressed with that green and with the beautifully colour-matched strap. Green and brown are a natural match with both here being dark toned with white(ish) highlights.
            That’d make a great every day any occasion watch. People say Seiko make boring watches. I’d rather say they make beautifully proportioned and finished watches that have really broad wearability.

          • ??????

            My wife’s favorite watch (combo) from all I ever had, she likes the emerald green face more than any other. To be honest, the strap I’ve put it on cost more than the watch itself – its Shell Cordovan color 8. The watch is far from boring, green sunburst is so lovely to look at, especially how it plays under different light. The only drawback was a crappy bracelet – but it doesn’t matter since I prefer leather.

          • IG

            Well that’s your Seiko’s worth, why do you sound surprised?

          • ??????

            I’m more surprised why the strap changing tool is so overpriced

          • IG

            I’d rather buy that strap changer than a Seiko LOL

          • Sheez Gagoo

            The strap looks like it is one mm to small. Makes it easy to change but makes it move laterally. Please consider that the straptool is usefull for any kind of watch, not only Seikos. But I`m quite sure there are cheaper and better chinese made tools around. The little blade on Swiss army knives is quite usefull for strap changes. I don`t see any other sense in the small blade.

          • ??????

            You are right 🙂 this was the first and last time when I ordered the stap measuring the lug distance by sight 🙂 I was bloody confident it must be 18 mm! Unfortunately it appeared to be 20 mm…
            Regarding the strap change – you nailed it about Swiss army knives. I use a small blade of my Victorinox, gift from my father.

        • ??????

          So, £39 + £17 + £24 is already £80. Add a bookmark here – must be around ~£100 then. I was wrong: Timeless Luxury are actually so generous!

          • Lincolnshire Poacher

            Not quite……. That’s the retail price. The wholesale price has got to be at least half that. On top of which, the actual cost of making them has got to be literally pennies.

  • BNABOD

    can someone explain to me the difference between the “in house” Nomos and Peseux Cal. 260
    aside from that it looks decent in blue

    • Sheez Gagoo

      One is bought from ETA and the other one has been developped by Nomos themselves.

    • Ralph Aichinger

      It is not Cal. 260 but 7001, aside from that:

      Nomos made several incremental steps from just using the ETA/Peseux 7001 to their alpha in its current implementation. The most prominent is the three quarter plate (this plate is divided into two parts with the peseux), hacking seconds, a different click for winding (Glashütter Gesperr), and probably other details.

      • BNABOD

        So how is that in house developed? slice the plate and boom voilà in house. The cal 260 looks the same too so I don’t doubt Nomis abilities to improve on a movement but I don’t see it as in house. Maybe I am just splitting hair

        • Ralph Aichinger

          To me it is not. It is produced inhouse though.

          • Timeless Luxury Watches

            Hi guys,

            It’s a very complex discussion since there is no universally held consensus view on what precisely in-house means. Practically speaking, it’s more of a spectrum since virtually no company designs and produces all of their own components (Seiko and fairly recently Rolex being the two best cases for exceptions, Rolex having replaced Kif and developed their own Paraflex shocks, Seiko having produced their own Diashock anti-shock mechanisms for decades), but even then we could point out that, at some point in the manufacturing line, they’re buying materials from outside of the company (steel, etc.) and using designs from outside the company (neither Seiko nor Rolex developed the lever escapement, for instance).

            With that note out of the way, we can start to examine where in this spectrum our modified Alpha falls. In addition to Ralph’s contributions, perhaps most important to note is that, in our Alpha (as opposed to the standard Alpha), Nomos has used their in-house designed and manufactured “swing system,” which is basically short for the timekeeping components like the pallet fork, escape wheel and balance spring. Very few movements that are considered to be in-house currently incorporate their own balance springs, the vast majority of these being produced by outside companies like Nivarox.

            Nomos’ DUW 3001 is among the best examples of an in-house movement (featured in watches like their Minimatik) but even it uses an anti-shock mechanism made by another company, not unlike Patek and JLC movements.

  • WMWM

    I have always loved Nomos, but their prices are getting quite steep

  • Bill W,

    I don’t like Nomos; does that make me a nomophobe?

  • Grumpy Cat

    I embrace this sponsored post if Timeless + Nomos provide me complimentary accommodations at Basellodging Serviced Business Apartments. Because it is all about advertising.

  • The Reclusive Boogur T. Wang

    Mebbe add a case of Pearl to sweeten the deal.

  • Bill W,

    Nomos needs to move that subseconds down. Or just get rid of it, especially on the Club.

    • Lincolnshire Poacher

      I agree. It looks better when it’s much closer to the edge of the dial than the centre. It’ll be because of the movement, I can’t quite believe they’d chose to place it there in the design process.

      • Berndt Norten

        Yes, close to the edge

        The Peseux 7001-based movement defines the position of the second hand. It’s a small, 23.8mm caliber.

  • Trevor Hirst

    I wish I got that free gift when I got the original Nomos Timeless Club! Love mine though. The lack of a date is interesting, but I am used to the date. The movement that is in mine is really nice, but it has been less than accurate lately, and I sent it back to Nomos for adjustment.
