A Closer Look at the Nomos Club Sport Neomatik 42 mm

Nomos has recently announced the impending release of their new luxury sport watch [1]. The Nomos Club Sport Neomatic 42 mm is their coming iteration of a larger and quite eye catching sports watch that looks as though it will be just as much at home at a dressy occasion as it will for active sporting events. It’s really a dual purpose watch that is destined to be a conversation starter. The man’s watch features a lovely round shaped face that offers a simple classic appearance that directs attention directly towards the dial that at first glance, seems a bit over-sized. The Club Sport Neomatik 42 is one of those cool and classy accessories that merits a closer look.

The case

The case, as the name implies is a 42 mm in diameter with a thickness of 10.2 mm [2]. This offers an extremely thin profile which in part aids in making the round shape stand out and appear larger than perhaps it really is. At any rate, we can assume by the thinness of the watch that it is a comfortable wear on the wrist. With a weight of just 2.19 ounces, we can practically guarantee it [3]. When you flip this watch over, the clear exhibition style case back provides an impressive view of the inner workings of the movement [1]. The materials used in crafting the case and case back are durable stainless steel.

The dial

We’re impressed with the perfectly round dial presented in a black background. This provides the foundation for the lume coated hour and minute markers to provide an amazing contrast. To add to this value, the hour and minute hands are white [1]. The indexes are Arabic numerals and batons. The protective glass is a dome style sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both inside and outside [3] for outstanding legibility, even in murky water environments. A date window in the shape of a disc is presented with a white background and black numbering [1]. The sub seconds dial is placed at the 6 o’ clock position [1].

The bracelet

The bracelet of this watch attaches to lugs with a width of 20 mm [3]. It features a more masculine appearance with large links that seem more in line with what a man would prefer, but it’s close to being a unisex model with a dial that could be viewed as more gender neutral in its essence [1]. It is worth noting here that all 145 pieces of the bracelet are assembled by hand [2] and it is designed and manufactured in-house, fastening with a deployment type clasp [3].

The movement

The Nomos Club Sport Neomatik 42 mm is powered by a movement which like many other components of the watch has been designed and made in-house at Nomos [1]. It is a caliber DUW 6101 self winding automatic type [2]. The movement is thin enough for the low profile case with a height of just 3.6 mm and a diameter of 35.2 mm [3]. It beats at a frequency of 3 Hz with 21,600 vibrations per hour with 27 jewels and a power reserve of 42 hours, with the functions of date, hours, minutes and seconds [2]. The screw down type crown offers three positions for manual wind when pulled out to the first position, the second for the quick date set feature and the third is for setting time [1]. Nomos was kind enough to include a red coloring to the crown that indicates it’s not fully screwed down. This is to ensure that the divers watch is fully protected a intended to offer the 300 meters of water resistance that you’d expect from a high quality diver [3].

Pricing and release date

The Nomos Club Sport Neomatic 42 mm will be offered at a new price of $4,060. The watchmaker has set the release date for sale to the public to take place some time in May of 2019. We’ve not yet heard the precise date it will be available [2].
