Sometimes I wonder if it mightn't be better for some if they never found this place if all it does is raise their expectations about a product they were perfectly satisified with before.
If you like the austere look of Nomos, you could also consider Mühle-Glashütte, e.g.: http://www.muehle-glashuette.de/index.php?cat=2.2.56 or http://www.gnomonwatches.com/images/...eutoniaBDL.jpg

People need to stop being so uptight about it. Besides, if we started boycotting everything with Nazi connections, we'd be avoiding half the brands/manufacturers in Germany. BMW made Nazi motorcycles. Mercedes made Hitler's personal automobile. Hugo Boss, as noted, made Nazi uniforms. Bayer...

Really I'd figure out first where I want to spend my holidays, and then research what my best tailoring options are in that destination.
