A wide bezel gives the 38.5mm stainless steel case of the NOMOS Glashutte Club Campus Night a more masculine feel than most watches its size. Named for its dark ruthenium-plated dial, it has an interesting mix of Arabic and Roman numerals, which are used alongside plain indexes. A neon orange hand on the small seconds sub-dial provides a pop of color during the day and blue-glowing Superluminova improves readability at night.
