With its signature sophisticated, minimalist look, the Autobahn is undeniably part of the NOMOS family, but there's something about it that is more dynamic than the rest of the watches in the legendary brand's portfolio. That playful attitude is drawn from the designer's inspiration, created not only with the famous German highway in mind but also from the 22-minute Kraftwerk song of the same name. The theme is most evident on the dial — where smooth, rounded corners rise to the edge like a steep curve, only to dip at the recessed subdial just above the elongated 3-date window at the bottom — while a light gray luminous ring glows blue in low light, bringing to mind the dashboard of a car at night. It all sits beneath sapphire domed crystal, which is also found on the back of the watch, to showcase the in-house built caliber DUW6101 movement — used here for the first time with a date complication. Despite all the traffic, it remains quite thin and wears comfortably on the wrist and is finished with a waterproof blue-black textile strap tailor-made in France that features the NOMOS winged clasp that is polished by hand.
Case Diameter: 41mm / Case Height: 10.5mm / Weight: 2.32 oz / Water Resistance: 10 ATM / Glass: Domed Sapphire Crystal / Lug Width: 20mm

Made in California, think of the Windbloc Joggers as more of your go-to casual pant than workout garb, as the insulation factor makes them great for braving the elements, but not spin class.
