I’ve been considering a NOMOS watch because of the price and in-house movement.

Great value for an in-house German movement. Clean look too. It would have to be auto for me though.

It’s actually a quite simple movement. I just don’t understand why something like this can’t be made in the states?

The parts that are outsourced by NOMOS can’t be outsourced in the USA to be called Made in the USA. Literally everything in the movement from the rubies, to the balance, to the mainspring and hair spring would have to come from the US.
