“… I firmly believe that the watch is the purest expression of design… encapsulating its essence in just a few millimetres is a challenging task that inspires me to pay the utmost attention to every single detail…”, says Francesco Nostas, a graduate in Industrial Design from IED and founder of the Italian watch brand Nostas Rome.

The fusion of boldness, distinctive design and Italian know-how is manifested in the collection of watches by Nostas Rome, a brand founded in 2019 in Rome.

The challenge for Francesco was to find a balance between geometries. Over the years, he developed a study of form that defied any pre-established rules, resulting in the fusion of the octagonal case with the sinuous circularity of the bezel, thanks to a dialogue between shapes and bevels where playfulness and character dominate. Attention to detail and passion for design are reflected in each of the Maison’s watches, conveying a sense of taste and aesthetics typical of Italian know-how.

Audace/Bold, is an adjective that identifies those who live without the fear of breaking away from the norm, asserting their personality and standing out. With the same philosophy, the new AUDACE collection, unveiled for the first time at VicenzaOro Fair 2023, is designed to remind us to cultivate our passions and celebrate them with boldness.

Supporting Francesco on this journey from the beginning has been his family. The proudly family-owned company manages all stages of the business in-house, from design concepts to marketing. This approach allows the brand to give a clear and distinctive identity to each collection, focusing on the narrative and added value of each watch, preserving the authenticity of the brand, and maintaining unfailing attention to detail.

The search for unique Pantone codes brings life to the Audace three hands collection, animated by the Swiss Sellita SW-200 movement, the result of a deeper project combining aesthetics, functionality and emotions, perfect for both him and her.

Bold lines, a mix of finishes and perfectly calibrated geometries define the new Audace GMT collection, animated by the made-in-Japan NH34 movement, featuring a second time-zone complication and a bidirectional 120-turn bezel with ceramic/steel inserts. Nostas Rome made its entrance into the watchmaking industry in 2023 by attending the Vicenza International Watch Fair (VicenzaOro).

In 2024, the company will again exhibit at VicenzaOro in the January edition and will open its doors in London with the World Time UK Fair, bringing Italian boldness and design to the international watchmaking scene.
