The Sleek NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date, In Steel And Blue

Nomos’ robust yet refined sports watch gets a cool blue dial and new style bracelet

The sports watch is undoubtedly one of the hottest categories in watchmaking at the moment. And it is very understandable, since most watches available that fit the bill are well-built and offer a great deal of care-free style and comfort. The same goes for the NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date, one of the brand’s most robust watches to date. First presented with a deep black dial, it now gets a steel-and-blue makeover and it looks rather fetching! Here is the NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue.

When you think of NOMOS you are likely thinking of somewhat refined, Bauhaus-inspired watches with the odd quirky detail here and there. Recent examples are the unusual Autobahn Director’s Cut and the funky Club Campus Absolute Grey & Future Orange. So when it comes to a NOMOS sports watch, you’d rightfully expect it to fall in line with the brand’s design codes.

The new NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue is a twist on the already existing black dial version. It is presented in a 42mm wide stainless steel case with a relatively modest height of 10.2mm. The exterior of the case is fully polished, and fitted with sapphire crystals on both sides. The case construction and screw-down crown ensure a 300m water-resistance. The crown stem is fitted with a red-coloured ring to indicate when it is unscrewed, as a safety precaution.

The Club Sports’ deep-sea blue dial is where this new model really shines, with its fine sunray brushed finish livening it up in the light. In a typical NOMOS style, the dial remains clean and very legible. Large, white numerals and baton hour indices are coated with Super-LumiNova, as are the sword-shaped hours and minute hands. At 6 o’clock there is a small seconds subdial with a circular pattern finish and a polished steel hand.

The NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue comes with the brand’s in-house DUW 6101 calibre. This movement has a patented bidirectional quick-set date mechanism, as well as the NOMOS swing system escapement. It runs at a frequency of 21,600vph and when fully wound runs for 42 hours. It’s nicely finished with blued screws, Côtes de Genève and perlage, and topped with a skeletonized rotor.

The new NOMOS Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue comes with a new style three-link bracelet, with brushed outer links and polished middle links. The watch retails for EUR 3,120.

  1. Lovely, but massive. A 38.5mm version, please. Lange gets modest sizing, why can’t the rest of Glashutte?

  2. Love the new bracelet, hope it’s available with the black dial soon!

  3. What is the lug to lug measurement please? Lazy that watch journalists can’t report this critical detail.

  4. @Scott – this isn’t a review but a news article. Meaning that we haven’t seen the watch yet. When (if) we have the watch with us for a photoshoot, we’ll be able to measure.

  5. Soll wie ein Klassiker von Rolex ausehen?,Also nicht mehr NOMOS sondern ab sofort NOMOX!

  6. Lug to lug is 52,3 mm according to Nomos’ insta.

  7. Always liked Nomos but have not seen one that really connected. The Club Campus looked nice in pictures but in the flesh it looks like a todler’s watch. The black Club Sport looks disconnected from its strap – but the ‘steel and blue’ comes together nicely (in the pics at least). 42mm makes it a great alternative for the Explorer I (that is basically a girls’s watch – viz < 42mm).

    NS – for the clown that could not figure the lug-to-lug: bet it would not be far off the 20mm of the "black face"…
