Home is where the little red dot is.

Travel the world with the push of a button now, keeping track of time wherever you are—Sydney or Denver, Alaska or the “Little Red Dot”. The new NOMOS RED DOT from NOMOS Glashütte is a tribute to the bustling city state.

Produced as a limited edition of the NOMOS Glashütte worldtimer Zürich Weltzeit, the NOMOS RED DOT is a single watch that knows the time zones better than most know their own back pocket. This exceptional timepiece from Glashütte is now available exclusively at The Hour Glass and Watches of Switzerland.


To mark the second anniversary of the cooperation between The Hour Glass and NOMOS Glashütte, the independent German watchmaking company has crafted 50 of these special limited edition watches: 35 of which come with a NOMOS’ classic white silver-plated dial, while another 15 are available with a new salmon-colored dial. Within this limited edition, Singapore has its own place on the dial’s city disk—and it contains a further reference to the Southeast Asian city state, also known as the “Little Red Dot”: Wherever the watch’s wearer happens to be, the little red dot on the right side of the dial shows what time it is at home.

“It’s a great honour for NOMOS Glashütte to collaborate with The Hour Glass and Watches of Switzerland to celebrate our young but very successful partnership. The inspiration for this watch came from Singapore’s most knowledgeable watch lovers, who we met when we gathered in 2016 for our first mutual event. I am proud that the NOMOS RED DOT expresses the manufacture’s close ties to The Hour Glass and that there is still a little twinkle in the eye when you have a closer look at the dial. Watch out for the little red dot.” – Mr Uwe Ahrendt, CEO NOMOS Glashütte.

The sapphire crystal glass back presents a view of the fine mechanical movement that ticks at heart of the watch: the NOMOS automatic caliber DUW 5201, developed and constructed in-house in Glashütte, Germany. The movement knows (nearly) every time zone in the world—and in a particularly beautiful form: A subtle button on the case, a small time disk, and the red icon on the dial are all this watch requires to make travelling elegant and wonderfully easy.
