Ludwig 33 Ref 243
The smaller version of a great thinker: Ludwig 33 with the hand-wound NOMOS Alpha caliber is more delicate than the regular version, but still suggests that the wearer has more than a passing command of Latin. The white silver-plated dial with Roman numerals, hands crafted from tempered blue steel, and velour leather strap complete this impression. The delicate hands from tempered blue steel point in all directions, but first and foremost towards the future.
Classical beauty and inner depth in a smaller size: Ludwig 33, powered by the NOMOS caliber Alpha—hidden within.
A strap of soft velour leather gives Ludwig wearers a finishing (feminine) touch.
Ludwig features Roman numerals, but with IIII instead of IV. This follows watchmaking traditions—and the preferences of the NOMOS design team.
