German luxury watch brand Nomos Glashütte has created two limited-edition mechanical watches to help support the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
Starting this month, special versions of the Nomos Tangente 38 and Tangente 33 will be available in the U.S., with $100 from the sale of each watch ($2,140 and $1,840, respectively) going directly to support the U.S. branch of the international group.
What sets the watches apart -- besides the limited-edition run of 1,000 pieces of each model -- are the following details: a red 12, the name “Doctors
Without Borders” at the bottom of the white silver-plated dial and black, oxidized hands (instead of the Tangente’s usual tempered blue ones).
A list of U.S. stockists can be found at the Nomos Glashütte website.
