A family-owned watch retailer with a prominent online presence, Ace Jewelers has made its an annual affair to work with Nomos on a limited edition. Past editions include last year’s #NomiesforLife and the Zurich world time from the preceding year.

The latest is the Ace x NOMOS Club 36 Limited Edition, conceived to mark the five-year relationship between the German brand and Amsterdam-based retailer.

Initial thoughts

The appeal of Nomos; watches lie in their cheerfully simple aesthetics and affordability. Even though the Club 36 Blue is a limited edition for a retailer, it is quintessentially Nomos in style with its blue and orange dial.

Being the entry-level Nomos watch, the standard Club 36 is offered in a narrow number of dial colours, which is one of the main attractions of the new edition. And because it is based on the brand’s entry-level model, the Club 36 Blue is unusually affordable. The version with a solid back costs just US$1,000 or so.

An uncommon edition

According to Ace, the Club 36 Blue is only the second limited edition based on the model over the past decade. The upside of using the model as the base for the new edition is pricing, since the Club 36 is the most affordable model in the Nomos catalogue.

The tweaks to the new edition lie in the dial, which has a blue and orange livery that’s based on Ace Jeweler’s corporate colours.

Dial aside, the watch is identical to the standard model. The case is polished steel, 36 mm in diameter, and offered with either a solid or open back.

Both versions are equipped with the same Alpha movement, a calibre made in house that’s based on the architecture of the Peseux 7001. It’s finished in typical Nomos style, which is surprisingly attractive despite the affordable price.
