Nomos Glashütte introduced its Ahoi model at BaselWorld 2013.
Just as strapping on the equipment and diving to extreme depths isn’t for everyone, creating a model that can function at these depths isn’t the remit of every watch brand. Those that don’t produce technical dive watches recognise the appeal of water resistent pieces and are creating models with their own quirky take on the genre. At BaselWorld 2013, Nomos Glashütte introduced its Ahoi model that does exactly that.
“Nomos’ Ahoi can be taken as an interpretation of a diver’s watch. It was not developed to fit this category,” says Christiane von Trotha, head of public relations for Nomos Glashütte. “Our aim was to develop a watch for active people who might be involved in an array of water sports. In our development we took the technical specs of diving watches as our benchmark and Ahoi meets all of them, the only element we are missing is the rotating bezel. The watch is water resistant down to 20 bars, or 200m, features superluminova indices and has an innovative fabric strap, which is waterproof and will not come undone when you jump into the water.”
