Nomos’ watches are often lauded for their unmistakable Bauhaus influences, and with good reason. “Less is more” is a famous slogan, but also a significant part of our modern understanding of colour is rooted in Bauhaus colour theory. Nomos appears to have embraced its colour studies over the years, consistently presenting watch dials in captivating shades and hues across all collections. Among them, the Nomos Club Campus series stands out as particularly vibrant. Notably, the brand continuously introduces exciting new colours to this series each year, showcasing a commitment to exploring colour aesthetics. After Absolute Gray and Future OrangeBlue Purple and Deep PinkCream Coral and Electric Green, the time has come for the Nonstop Red and Endless Blue.

Nomos tailors its Club Campus series specifically for the younger generation, positioning these watches as ideal companions for students during intense study sessions or as a tangible memento for celebrating graduation – complete with a complimentary caseback engraving. Crafted with the needs of young individuals in mind, these timepieces boast a robust construction, essential features, and an infusion of excitement through vibrant dial colours. And its relatively accessible price is also a great part of this strategy.

In the latest 2024 offerings, Nomos continues its trend, introducing references that echo the characteristics of previous years. The dials now sport striking bright red and captivating blue hues, adding another burst of energy to the collection. Available in polished stainless steel cases with diameters of 36mm and 38.5mm, with respective heights of 8.2mm and 8.5mm, these watches maintain a sleek profile with their rounded bezels and long curved lugs while ensuring durability, with water resistance of up to 100 meters.

The Nonstop Red and Endless Blue dials of the Nomos Club Campus maintain the familiar series design, featuring a stylish blend of Arabic, Roman, and baton-style hour indices – a sort of inverted California dial, the Glashütte way. All indices are coated in Super-LumiNova, emitting a captivating blue glow in the dark. The dial’s periphery hosts a minute track with double-digit markings for 5-minute segments, while the recessed subdial for running seconds takes centre stage in the lower part of the dial. The rhodium-plated hour and minute hands have Super-LumiNova inlays, matching the indices. The small seconds hand is painted in a signature neon orange, standing out against the blue – and surprisingly well against the vibrant red background, too, contributing to the overall youthful design.

Nomos offers versatility with a choice between a solid steel or sapphire crystal caseback, expanding the options for the new Nonstop Red and Endless Blue references to eight. For those who prefer a display caseback, the in-house built, hand-wound Alpha calibre is on display, featuring elegant decorations such as Glashütte ribbing and perlage on the rhodium-plated surfaces, a sunburst finish on the ratchet and crown wheel, along with blued screws and gold engravings on the three-quarter plate. Those seeking ample space for a personalized message will appreciate knowing the decorated movement’s power reserve is up to 43 hours.

Nomos completes the ensemble and pairs the new Club Campus Nonstop Red and Endless Blue references with vegan velour velvet grey straps secured with a pin buckle closure. Now available from the brand and not limited, prices range from EUR 1,300 to EUR 1,600 depending on the size and type of caseback. For more details, please visit

  1. I am waiting with baited breath for an “SL” model from NOMOS, (short lugs version). I adore their designs yet hate how their watches fit on my skinny fishing rod wrists.

  2. Have to agree with Kurt on that. My wallet would suffer heavily the day they release their watches with an “SL” option! I have one of the first Tangente Watches (still with eta movement). A charm in I think 35mm. Fits perfectly, but those lugs sometimes feel awkward. Don’t want to imagine how they must be on the larger watches on them. Disclaimer: I also have quite the slender wrist! 😉

  3. Why would they not go with a contrasting color for the small seconds on the red dial? Wouldn’t blue have made sense, given they used red on the blue?

    BTW, I know this is NOMOS and all, but those lugs on the Tangente…LOL.
