Nomos is from Germany and it is a niche watch brand, while Nomos watch is very popular among watch fans because of its clean design. I wrote a post about Nomos watch before, it is a review of Nomos Tangente replica watch, I received a lot of inquiry emails after posting this review. Today, I want to introduce another Nomos replica watch to help you understand this brand better. The watch shown below is replica Nomos Ahoi Atlantik, you might do not know genuine Nomos Ahoi Atlantik is a diver’s watch, yes, it is. I am also surprised when I read the watch review on another blog. Ahoi Atlantik is indeed the first Diver’s watch Nomos has made. Such a beach-friendly watch, Nomos Ahoi Atlantik does not have a strong case and also lacks a uni-directional rotating bezel. Nomos keeps the iconic design features of Tangente on this Ahoi Atlantik watch.
The case is 38mm in diameter, it is made of solid 316L stainless steel and is completely polished. The crown is screw-down and has a matt “NOMOS” on polishing face. Both replicas of Nomos Ahoi Atlantik and Tangente use screw-down crown, while genuine Nomos Tangente does not have. Check case sides, they do not not have natural streamlined arc, but two lugs have obvious edges.
Besides screw-down crown, the dial is the second place that makes the watch a sporty diver’s watch. Minimalist design, the same dial that makes Nomos famous, is used on this replica Nomos Ahoi watch. Dial color is blue, 5 large Arabic numerals with stick hands, the most iconic designs of Nomos. The dial is clean but highly legible. The lume on this replica is pleasingly bright, you can see the lume photo below, the green light emiting from hands and black indices next to hour markers. Although the green luminescence is not as strong as your dedicated diver’s watch, but you know, Nomos Ahoi Atlantik is a beach watch.
The replica watch is equipped with a Sea-gull automatic movement, to make it look like genuine Nomos in-house caliber, the auto rotor is heavily skeleonized and the movement plates are beautifully polished. The band on the replica is textile texture, it is extremely comfortable to wear because the strap is super thin, super light and super breathable. After playing on the beach in this hot summer, the strap will dry off soon. A stainless steel buckle with fine engraving is used.
