We are proud to announce our collaboration with German watchmakers NOMOS Glashütte, to bring you the Fratello × NOMOS Glashütte Weltzeit "The Hague Edition" with a gorgeous "Panda" dial and limited to just 25 pieces worldwide.

A luxury travel companion

The Weltzeit case measures 39.9mm in diameter and stands just 10.9mm tall on the wrist. The lug-to-lug length is 49mm, and the case is topped by a slightly domed sapphire crystal treated with a strong, blue anti-reflective coating.

Powered by a very special movement

The case back of the NOMOS Glashütte Weltzeit boasts a sapphire display case back, revealing the beautifully finished in-house DUW 5201 movement within. The DUW 5201 is an automatic caliber with an operating frequency of 21,600vph (3Hz). Additionally, it has a power reserve of 42 hours.

One of NOMOS's fundamental design tenets is slimness. It's a core part of the Bauhaus design. Watch design is an endless balancing act: you might take a little here, so you must give a little there in return. The slimness of the watches means the movements within them also have to be relatively slim too. The DUW 5201 inside this beauty is actually NOMOS's thickest caliber, despite only measuring a svelte 5.7mm.

Pack your bags and prepare for adventure

The Fratello × NOMOS Glashütte Weltzeit "The Hague Edition" is a jet-setter's timepiece, a model perfect for the debonairé globetrotter that wants a business-appropriate watch on their wrist, but one that equally dresses up or down. It works just as well with smart casual wear as it does with a suit, but it really comes into its own when it's the finishing touch to some sharp workwear.
The Weltzeit series is defined by its unusual GMT complication. While the name literally means World Time, this is not a true world timer as not all 24 time zones are simultaneously displayed. What NOMOS has given us, is an incredibly visual GMT complication allowing the wearer to track a second time zone. The somewhat more graphical representation of the second time zone here makes interpreting the information at a glance much more intuitive, thanks to the 24-hour home disc next to the handy little home icon at 3 o'clock.

Setting your NOMOS Glashütte Weltzeit

The Fratello × NOMOS Glashütte Weltzeit "The Hague Edition" is surprisingly simple to operate. When you first set up the watch, you need to align your preferred home city at the top of the dial. For example, we're in the Hague, so we would press the 2 o'clock pusher until "The Hague" clicks around to the top of the dial at 12 o'clock. You don't have to worry about the time at this point.

Next, you set the 24-hour disc using the crown pulled out to the first position. Once that is set to your home time, use the recessed button in the case band at 10 o'clock to advance the hour hand independently from the city ring, meaning you can set it to the same time as the 24-hour disc. That's it. Now you're ready to grab your passport and hit the road.
When you're traveling, simply use the pusher to select your destination (or city that represents the time zone of your destination), and you're good to go!

The Hannes Wettstein Case

The Weltzeit case was designed by the late Hannes Wettstein. It is the brand's most complicated case and, despite the relative simplicity of the case from the exterior, it is a complex beast. Like the architecture Wettstein was known for, it is a mixture of industrial lines and organic curves.

The lugs' lines seem to defy possibility. That's because they are removed from the case early on in the manufacturing process so that they can be individually finished before being attached to the case. This multi-component construction means that the Weltzeit case is fascinating to wear over a long period. The more you wear it in different light conditions and environments, the more it reveals its true personality to you.
