NOMOS Glashütte joined the winners circle of this years Good Design Award with their new model Autobahn.
Good Design Award.
The internationally renowned product design award was established in 1950 by a group of designers that included Charles and Ray Eames. The award is presented to products that provide convincing solutions in their form, function, aesthetics, and quality.
The automatic watch with the name Autobahn is one of the latest creations from NOMOS Glashütte. The date display features clear forms and dynamic contours. It is equipped with the most innovative movement from NOMOS to date, the neomatik caliber DUW 6101: 170 years of fine Glashütte watchmaking, meticulous German engineering, a generous dash of high-tech, and countless hours of craftsmanship.
Meet The Designers.
Product designer Werner Aisslinger and partner Tina Bunyaprasit, the creative team behind Studio Aisslinger, designed the bold timepiece for NOMOS Glashütte in collaboration with the watchmaker’s own designers. Their work can be seen at exhibitions worldwide—from MoMA to the V&A and Vitra Design Museum. Inspired by daring racetrack designs, the dial immediately launches into a steep curve, which is echoed in the sub-seconds. The elongated date window shows a trio of dates at a glance: yesterday, today, tomorrow.
“Designing a mechanical timepiece was such a rewarding project. And now it feels incredible to win a Good Design Award for it. The year is already off to a great start.”
