Generously proportioned, sophisticated, wonderfully beautiful—and a little larger than the multiple prize-winning original model: That is Metro 38 Datum. Without a power reserve indicator, this watch is even clearer, more paired down and, thanks to a growth spurt, a little more masculine too. This timepiece may be utterly cosmopolitan, but it also presents Glashütte watchmaking craft at its finest. A glance through the sapphire crystal glass back reveals the movement DUW 4101 with the NOMOS swing system—the in-house escapement which helped the model Metro win appreciation and fan letters from around the world.
The ref. 1102 has a case measuring 38.5 mm. It is powered by the caliber DUW 4101 hand-wound movement.
A new in-house caliber with swing: DUW 4101 is ticking in Metro 38 Datum and Metro 38 Datum urban black. Characterized by the blued balance spring, this movement is also equipped with the NOMOS swing system—the in-house escapement with which NOMOS Glashütte was able to break the Swatch Group’s monopoly in the industry last year. Further features include manual winding, a date function, fine adjustment in six positions, a Glashütte three-quarter plate, and Glashütte stopwork.
With the introduction of DUW 4101, NOMOS Glashütte will started equipping all hand-wound movements with a date function with the NOMOS swing system as well.
