German watchmaker, NOMOS Glashütte, has introduced the new Orion 38 Silver, now available with a white silver-plated dial with gold-plated indices and hands as well as a small-seconds with the same tones as the dial. The Orion is one of the most popular timepieces produced by NOMOS Glashütte. With its slender case, the elongated case lugs, and the slightly domed sapphire crystal glass, it has developed a significant following. As its name suggests, the new Orion 38 Silver has a 38mm diameter stainless steel case with a polished finish and has a thickness of 7.9mm. Similar to the other variants in the Orion Collection, the small-seconds is placed at 6 o’clock.
The Orion 38 Silver is powered by NOMOS’ in-house designed Alpha caliber, with a manual, hand-wound movement, which offers up to 43 hours of power reserve. The caseback is made from sapphire crystal glass to reveal the 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) Alpha caliber, which happens to be the most widely used in-house movement of the brand. It is characterized by a three-quarter plate and refined with Glashütte ribbing, tempered blue screws, and perlage. The Orion 38 Silver is offered with a fine gray velour leather strap.
