Peter Betancourt, 26, works in the service department—and is giving away a NOMOS cheque for 100 US dollars*.

»The first time in my life I ever moved was to Saxony—I came here straight from Miami. I just knew I wanted to work for NOMOS Glashütte. In my opinion, the design of our watches is the best on the market today: very modern, without neglecting the old watchmaking traditions. For me, it’s simply perfect. And I have found the perfect place to work. Even when I was at watchmaking school in the USA, I was following NOMOS Glashütte, fascinated to hear about innovations such as the NOMOS swing system and the new automatic movement DUW 3001. The weather here is worse than in Florida, but what can you do? Now I clean and oil the watches that customers send us every three to five years. A good watch has to be serviced, that’s important. Or as we put it: Watches need to have a spa trip every now and then. When I go on holiday myself, I usually head somewhere sunny. I only have to fly home for that.

When you consider the quality of the NOMOS timepieces that we create here, they are very accessibly priced. You get so much for your money! It’s wonderful. Today I am giving you a contribution towards your Christmas present: a watch cheque for 100 US dollars*.«

*If the lucky winner is not based in the USA, the currency of the watch cheque will be converted as required.

»A contribution towards a watch—or a check-up with me.«

Too late, despite owning a good watch? Don’t be disappointed—the NOMOS cheque is also available here.
