All Black Watch Collection

An all black watch is a must-have in an outfit of every man and woman. Just like a little black dress for women, some things in men's fashion will never get old. We are talking leather shoes, a formal suit, a leather belt, and of course, a wristwatch. Usually, an all-black  watch is the thing you are missing in your formal outfit. Of course, you can wear your black dial watch every day if you desire. Blue face watches or even white face watches are becoming trendy again. However, black watches were always a popular choice and always will be.

Traditionally, an all black watch meant that every detail on the watch is black. However, that was abandoned due to practical reasons. It is hard to tell time on an all-black watch, so it just doesn't make any sense in wearing them, despite the elegant appearance. Given the questionable practicality issues, watchmakers decided to break the monochromatic dark look with different case colours and dial details. This little yet important change brought back the popularity of black watches. The widely accepted fact is that the first all-black wristwatch was created in 1972, and it made a great impression on picky watch aficionados. Soon, every watchmaker company started to design black watches.

Does Nordgreen sell an all black watch?

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. 

Nordgreen’s Pioneer line

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.

Nordgreen’s Native line

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.

Things to consider before buying a black watch

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.

Versatility

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.

Size

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.

Movement type

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.

Water resistance

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.

Material

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:

  • durable and scratch-resistant
  • hypoallergenic
  • affordable
  • elegant, especially paired with leather
