Tim Mosso and Josh Thanos explain why so few Nomos watches appear on the pre-owned market and grey markets. Tim relates that Nomos controls distribution better than most brands, so the sell-through to the grey market and dealer discounting are uncommon. The (honest) low price point, simple design, and semi-cult status of the Nomos brand keeps resale values relatively high. Tim notes that he will review a Nomos Zurich Weltzeit Nachtblau for the Govberg YouTube Channel in March. In the second portion of the video, Tim and Josh compare the Breguet, Type XXII, Type XXI, and Type XX to Zenith’s family of El Primero-powerd chronographs. Tim explains that Breguet sports watches play in a lower market stratum and display generally lower fit and finish than the brand’s high horology offerings. Tim also relates the difference between the high-beat Type XXII (Breguet 3880) and the more common 42mm Breguet Type XXI (Breguet 3810) while drawing parallels between Zenith’s El Primero Striking 10th models and the Breguet 3880.
