Make no doubt about it: Nomos Glashutte makes some very cool watch movements. Their watch designs, however, are often another story.

Obviously, not every watch will appeal to every consumer, and differentiation is often a key to the success of a branded product. Still, who wears anything in “Siren White?”

Nomos Ahoi Club Summer caseback

Maybe my opinion is too strong on this matter but I personally believe guys should not wear white pants, and I’d argue a guy wearing one of these is the equivalent. I’d even go so far as to say these remind me of a white Chanel J12 ceramic watch, which by the way look great on women, but if I saw a guy wearing one I would laugh.

It’s as if the sick movements (caliber DUW 3001) and the overall watch designs (of the Ahoi and Club) come from different worlds.
