Promotion: Dezeen has teamed up with watch brand Nomos Glashütte to put together a Valentine's Day gift guide featuring four hand-wound watches "made from the best materials and high-tech production methods".

"The finest watches in the world have been made in Glashütte [Germany] for 175 years," said Nomos Glashütte. Their watch collection comes in a range of sizes and colours, including blush, rose gold, navy and silver.

"Nomos Glashütte is a part of this tradition of German fine watchmaking and produces, largely by hand, the watches of tomorrow."

All of Nomos Glashütte's hand-wound watches are shipped in the brand's signature cases, which are made from black poplar wood.

Read on for our roundup of four watches that are ideal as Valentine's Day gifts from Nomos Glashütte – for wrists of all sizes, with dial designs inspired by the 1920s and the Bauhaus school of architecture.

Orion 33 Rosé

Orion 33 Rosé is a hand-wound watch that is part of Nomos Glashütte's Orion collection, which is defined by its minimalistic aesthetic. The watch is ideal for delicate wrists, according to the brand, and comes in a light blush colour and golden dial.

The watch has a diameter of 33 millimetres and features a light velour leather strap that is designed to "flatter particularly delicate wrists and lets smaller watches appear even more refined".

"It may be blushing, but is by no means shy," said Nomos Glashütte. "This Orion goes perfectly with jewellery and is itself a wonderful adornment."

Metro 33 Rose Gold

Created by Berlin-based designer Mark Braun, the Metro 33 Rose Gold watch has a golden case and is the latest watch within the brand's classically designed Metro collection.

The watch has a diameter of 33 millimetres and features grey hour indexes, rose gold arms, purple minute markers and a silver-plated dial.

"This watch celebrates the materiality of gold, combining it with the contemporary design details of the strap and clasp," said Braun. "It has a feminine aspect and more warmth. With Metro Rose Gold 33, we are using precious metal in a modern way. "

"Metro Rose Gold 33 shows just what is possible with this elegant design," Braun continued. "And is perfect for all those looking for a sophisticated timepiece in gold, just a tick smaller."

"Orion 38 Silver is the perfect watch for gifting – beautiful, valuable, but not exorbitant," said the brand. "Decent glamour for the wrist to celebrate the beginning of the roaring 20s."
