Baselworld 2018: Introducing the Nomos Autobahn, Designed by Werner Aisslinger

The automobile-inspired sports watch, with a brand new movement.

Styled by German furniture designer Werner Aisslinger, the Nomos Autobahn is a sports watch that takes its cues from a speedometer, with a bowl-shaped dial that is modelled on racetracks.

The Autobahn is the result of a four-year collaboration between Nomos and Mr Aisslinger, who with his partner Tina Bunyaprasit run the design agency aisslinger.

Wide bands of glow in the dark Super-Luminova circle the dial, which is raised and curved at its edges, just like the subsidiary seconds. At six o’clock sits an enlarged date window.

Rated to 100m, the case is 41mm, large for a Nomos, and with integrated lugs. Though minimalist like most Nomos case designs, the Autobahn has a distinct case profile, and no bezel on the front.

It’s powered by the in-house neomatik DUW 6101, a newly launched automatic movement with 42-hour power reserve, and a quickset date that can be set in both directions.
