If you compare the Club Sport Neomatik with other NOMOS watches, you’ll immediately notice a big difference. Coming in at 42mm, it’s larger than its siblings. Still, it’s not as big as many of the dive watches that are on the market today. That slimmed-down size is in part thanks to the neomatik caliber. NOMOS devised a method of enclosing that movement in a slim case that still able to go to a depth of 300 meters. The watch is automatic winding and has a 42-hour power reserve.
The black dial also sports a lot of Superluminova, which, in the larger plots makes this watch highly visible. It’s apparent that a lot of thought went into this watch, and the details show. For instance, the red crown tube shows when the crown isn’t fully screwed on. On the dial, a seconds and date complication fill out the aesthetics. The domed sapphire crystal has been treated with anti-reflective coating both inside and out.
And then there’s the retro vibe that comes courtesy of what looks like an old-school stretch bracelet. The bracelet consists of 145 pieces, and is hand assembled. A deployment clasp closes the bracelet. Just like the case, the bracelet is made of stainless steel.
In short, this watch has enough elegance to be at home in any dressy occasion but also has the wherewithal to be more than just a serviceable dive watch.
