At Nordgreen, we are fans of minimalism and balance. After all, our Scandinavian values teach us simplicity, elegance, and class. So no wonder all our Nordgreen watches share the same value. We have given all our trust to Jakob Wagner, our lead designer. And, as always, Jakob made masterpieces. We are beginning to think he can't make a mistake. Jakob designed all our four watch lines, Pioneer, Native, Philosopher, and Infinity. The Pioneer and the Native belong to a family of black dial watches. We also have a collection of black and gold watches if you would like to add a touch of elegance to your look.
On our robust Pioneer Chronograph, black never looked better. Paired with the gunmetal, silver, or rose colour of the case, you are guaranteed to look stunning. For the Pioneer line design in 2020, Jakob won a precious designer's award called the Red Dot. No surprise, though, it was his fourth Red Dot award in his truly amazing career.
Pioneer line celebrates the accomplishments of technology and natural balance. This is Nordgreen's first watch with the chronograph feature and one of our all-time best sellers. Just look at this marvellous design, inspired by the wind turbines, science, and positive social changes, and it will all be clear to you.
Our well balanced Native line tells a lot of different stories. Its subtle and minimalistic design is paired with the slim, almost invisible case. With no unnecessary details, the perfectly designed dial pairs well with a silver, gunmetal, gold, or rose gold case colour. The class of the Native line watches is unmatchable, and it's a great choice for both men and women.
The colour shouldn't be your only choice when buying an all black watch. Although we admit, the classiness of them is tempting. However, there are a few more things to consider before you place your order. Of course, these tips are good for any watch, not just the black one.
Although black on black looks great on formal events or even black-tie nights, sometimes it can be...well, too formal. With Nordgreen watches, you won't have that problem. All our watches come with an interchangeable band. Meaning, you just need a minute to change your watch strap according to the occasion. For black-tie nights and formal events, choose a classical black leather band or perhaps a black vegan leather band. For informal occasions, we offer nylon, mesh, and rubber straps, in various colours. Also, by ordering a gift bundle, you can save even up to 20% on the total price. You won't ever have to worry about pairing your watch with your outfit again.
Well, this is just a matter of personal preference. However, you should always choose a wristwatch depending on your body type and your wrist's size. A watch that is too large for your wrist lacks a certain elegance. A watch that is too small will look like a toy on your wrist. Our Pioneer Chronograph comes in a unique 42 mm size. Also, our Native line comes in three sizes, 32 mm, 36 mm, and 40 mm.
In watchmaking, there are two main types of watch movement, mechanical and quartz. The mechanical movement is pricey, not so precise, and requires winding for proper use. Although it has a distinctive retro charm, it lacks practicality, especially in these modern times. However, the quartz movement is precise, affordable, and simple to use. Those are the reason that the vast majority of watchmakers use the quartz movement. At Nordgreen, we chose to go with the Miyota quartz movement, with the unbeatable Japanese precision and fine making.
What's the use of your fine black-on-black watch if you can't wear it everywhere? Water resistance has become a standard in watchmaking, although there are some companies whose watches still don't have this feature. Of course, we do. Nordgreen offers water resistance up to 3 ATM (30 meters) on its all watches, and for the Pioneer line, even up to 5 ATM (50 meters). All our watches are perfect for everyday use, and with the Pioneer, you can even go for a casual swim.
When you buy a watch, you want it to last. As a part of your personal style and as something you wear every day, you are bonded with it. Nowadays, people have an unlimited offer of every material possible for making watches. However, at Nordgreen, we decided to go with 316L stainless steel. There are many reasons why we chose this material, but we will name just a few:
