This Nomos movement from a Nomos Ludwig didn’t work anymore.
After taking it apart, I found a fair amount of dirt on one of the pallets.
After cleaning, oiling and reassembling the movement, everything works fine now.
The Nomos movement is an ETA 7001 that has been “nicefied” by Nomos. Still only worth around £ 90 😉 Nothing wrong with the movement – Nomos just charges way too much for what you get. Nice watches with the ETA 7001 are around £ 500, and that’s what a Nomos should cost.
As of 2005, they are now making their own movements. I haven’t gotten hold of one yet – it would be very interesting to take it apart and to compare it with the ETA 7001.
On to the timegrapher – let’s see how it performs:
|Position||Accuracy s/day||Amplitude||Beat Error|
Pretty much what you would expect from a decent movement. Properly regulated, you should get a live performance on your wrist of +/- 8s/day or so.
