Nomos just released the smallest Metro yet, the aptly-named Metro 33.
As you might have guessed, the new model is 33 millimeters, a great size for smaller wrists.
You may also have noticed that the smallest Metro is only available in rose gold, at least for the moment. Steel versions are very likely to come in the next year or two, although that’s just my speculation.
Like its larger brother, the Metro Rose Gold Neomatik 39, Nomos has opted for a relatively restrained monotone dial, although its brightened up by the gold hands.
Unlike its brother, however, it’s using the tried and true hand wound Alpha movement, not the automatic DUW 3001. As a result, it’s 3/4 of a millimeter thinner than the already thin Neomatik at just 7.7mm.
It comes on a nice beige velour strap that complements the gold but doesn’t compete for attention.
As you might expect of a gold Nomos, it isn’t the most value-oriented option, but the price is relatively reasonable at $7,200. It’s the only Metro you can get in this size for the moment, but for those who like steel, I imagine you’ll be seeing a more affordable choice sometime in 2020. Otherwise, you do have some other watches from Nomos, like the lovely Orion 33 and Tangente 33.
