NOMOS continues to support the Nobel Prize-winning organization MSF, launching two new Tangente series MSF watches for the German branch Ärzteohne Grenzen, each limited to 250 pieces.
MSF provides assistance worldwide, with more than 41,000 health workers working in areas affected by conflict, epidemics, famines, natural disasters and displacement. NOMOS has long supported the work of the organization. To date, the brand has produced more than 8,000 watches to raise emergency relief funds. This collaboration was scheduled to end in 2018, but NOMOS and the MSF German branch have decided to continue developing this valuable project. NOMOS promises to donate 250 Euros for every special edition watch sold.
‘In epidemics and other emergencies, we need to respond quickly, and large donations from individuals and companies provide a guarantee,’ said Florian Westphal, the head of the German branch of MSF. This valuable contribution enables us to work in approximately 70 countries around the world to provide life-saving medical assistance. ‘
