Union Glashütte – Noramis Date Colour

Colourful classics: In the 1970s, cars were rolling off the production lines in striking colours. And this is precisely where UNION GLASHÜTTE drew its inspiration from when designing its 1970s classic Noramis Date in five striking colours. 

The look and feel of those characterful vintage cars are captured by the chrome of the numerals and the UNION lettering, reminiscent of the brand lettering applied to automobiles of that era. The watchmaking brand took the occasion of this colourful addition as an opportunity to rework the design of the watch and to update the inner workings with the latest technology.

The five different dial colours are inspired by the paintwork of vintage cars from the 1970s. The chrome elements round off the retro look of this vintage classic. But that's not all: UNION GLASHÜTTE also seized the chance to redesign the case. The dial is flat and no longer domed. The extremely rounded sapphire crystal highlights the vintage character.

The dial is available in five eye-catching colours: Positano Yellow, Bahia Red, Cornflower Blue, Vintage Green and Graphite Grey.

For even better readability, the hands feature SuperLumiNova®. The colourful dials are accompanied by exquisite leather straps, available in beige, brown, green and grey. The interchangeable design means straps can be switched easily to create the perfect look.

The inner workings of the watch have also been redesigned and fitted with the latest technology. The UNG-07.S1 with silicon balance spring brings the watch to life with all its anti-magnetic benefits. Measuring just 40 mm in diameter, the watch is perfectly proportioned for any wrist. The watch has a power reserve of at least 60 hours and a water resistance of 10 bar.

Each variant is available from retailers at a price of €2400 (recommended retail price).
