Square-shaped watches exist in their own class. New Nomos Tetra plum comes as addition to this special group. German masters decided to add a small revision to design in order to have brighter look. Let’s check what has changed here.

Sharp and Bright
Somehow all square watches I’ve seen are quite limited in color. There are no unusual shades, no bright colors or anything that will change all “seriousness” of such case shape. Nomos Tetra brings sharp angles to the max, so it is surprising to see this brand playing with color. What has been white or black before now can be purchased in plum color.
Ok, I admit that German masters played with color before because we can get green and light pink watches. Nevertheless, new color is somehow more suitable to overall design.
New watch color is inspired by … plum! Wait before you smile, take a look first. Somehow it works with square case and doesn’t drop out of overall design. Standard Tetra complication is still in place and can be found at 12 o’clock mark. Nevertheless, it would be cool to see white color replaced with something new. From the other side, who knows how it will affect readability, right?
Nomos Tetra plum – Availability
Yes, this is still classic Tetra which is present on the market for 20 years, but so what? New color adds interest to well-known model and makes it even more attractive. Watch should be available for order from now on, so if you were waiting for something special – this is your chance. Funny thing is that new color is more expensive than “simple ones”. Note that new watch is not a limited edition. 😉
