When it comes to dressing professionally, nothing finishes an outfit off like a watch. An uncluttered face set on black leather watch straps is a classic design that never goes out of style. Wear it for a presentation to the board, or out on a date.
In fact, wear it with whatever you like. A classic style like this goes with everything from casual-wear to formal wear. Blue leather watch straps or brown straps can also make a great addition to your wardrobe.
The simple style means that you’ll never look like a fashion victim. After all, classic never looks dated. A glitzy watch might be pretty, but it could also give the impression that you’re trying too hard. Our classic designer watches show that you value the finer things in life and care about time.
Designer Watches are Expensive
Generally speaking, you’d be right. At Nordgreen, we plan to change that. Why should you pay exorbitant rates to get a well-designed watch? You’ll notice that we’ve kept our pricing affordable. Call it luxe for less if you like.
Your next question will no doubt be, "How can you afford to charge such low prices?" The answer is simple – Simplicity. We started by making a bold decision at the outset. We’d offer a limited range – just three designs.
A more limited product range keeps our overheads down, and we pass those savings onto you.
We didn’t stop there, though. We wanted our watches themselves to be as simple as possible. Watches are meant to tell time, not be gadgets, so we stuck to traditional features.
Naturally, we also wanted our clients to have more choices. So, we decided to offer customised options. You can change:
- The colour of the dial (available in blue dial)
- The watch strap
- The case colour
- The dial size
Our simple range of three can be reworked into endless combinations. For example, you can pair your black leather watch strap with any watch you own!
Do I Even Need a Watch?
Your mobile phone tells the time too, so why get a watch? There are a few reasons.
- How long does it take you to fish out your phone, input the code, and then check the time? How much time do you waste flicking through messages while you’re checking? Your watch is easily accessible and doesn’t have any distracting features.
- People may judge you if you don’t have one. This attitude is changing slowly, but many people still judge those not wearing a timepiece. They might think that you don’t care about time at all. And, if you don’t care about time, how can you be punctual?
- A timepiece is an excellent way to finish off a low-key look. It’s a great way to accessorise at work without going overboard.
- A watch’s battery lasts two to three years. Can you say the same about your mobile phone?
We started with outstanding design. We chose one of Scandinavia’s premier designers, Jakob Wagner, to bring our vision to life. We wanted the line to represent hygge. For those who don’t know, hygge is a Scandinavian concept. It means embracing a simpler life and enjoying what you already have. This lifestyle helps to foster appreciation.
Now let’s have a look at the watches themselves. (We do need to mention that the options on the Philosopher are more limited. You can choose the strap colour of your choice, but the dial only comes in white.)
This is our most straightforward design. Every detail is finely crafted to ensure a flawless finish. The dial is minimalist – we’ve only marked the hours, and we’ve left off the date feature.
What you get is an elegant watch that will turn heads for the right reasons.
The dial sizes range from 32mm to 40mm. If you have smaller wrists, you’ll want the smallest size. These are your options:
Would you like a black dial to perfectly match the straps or opt for high contrast white? These are your options:
Don’t forget to choose the case colour. These are your options:
- Rose Gold
In this section, we’ve focused on black straps. But you don’t have to stick to that if you don’t want to. Alternatively, why not get a spare set of straps so that you can change up the look. These are your options:
- Stainless steel mesh in gold, gunmetal, or silver
- Vegan leather
All of our straps are interchangeable as long as you match the strap to the dial size.
This counts the seconds, minutes, and hours. If split-second timing is important to you, the Philosopher is ideal. The dial also features a date display.
There are two dial sizes to choose between:
As mentioned before, the dial is only available in white.
You can change up the case colour if you like – these are your choices:
- Rose Gold
Want a different look for a different day? Then add a second strap from one of the following:
- Stainless steel mesh in several colours
- Vegan leather
Our Infinity model is ideal if you have dainty wrists. The watch sits directly on the straps, with no lugs to make a face look fuller. We’ve marked the hours and minutes but kept the rest of the face clear.
These are your choices:
These are your choices:
These are your choices:
- Rose Gold
Don’t forget to look over our bundle deals. These come with the watch, and spare straps so that you can change the look fast. Say, for example, that you want a more casual look, you can opt for rubber straps. Or, for a more upscale look, why not opt for rose gold steel mesh? Black leather watch straps are always a classic choice, though.
What Sets Our Watches Apart?
Our pieces are timeless and made to last. We could have opted for cheaper components, but we don’t compromise on quality. We have negotiated with some of the top suppliers to ensure that every mechanism in your watch is high-quality.
By sticking to simple features, we’re can bridge the gap between a luxury purchase and affordability. We don’t need a ton of extra features. The outstanding design speaks for itself. It’s also a timely reminder of the principle of hygge.
We Give Back
What’s more, every time you buy a watch from us, we donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity. When you check out, you’ll be asked which of our three chosen charities you’d like to support. These are your choices:
- Donate a two-month supply of water to a needy person in the Central African Republic
- Pay for a child in India to attend school for two months
- Preserve 200 square feet of rain forest in South America
We Use Only The Highest Quality Materials
Miyota is the leading manufacturer of movements. The movements are the mechanism within the watch that helps it keep time. Miyota prides itself on producing movements that are durable and highly accurate.
You’d think that one battery was much the same as another. That’s no longer the case. Unfortunately, there are manufacturers out there who produce batteries designed to last only a few months. These cheap batteries could cause your watch to lose time.
That’s why we spent time sourcing better batteries. Ours will last at least two years.
Mineral glass is the best-quality glass that you can get. It’s tough, won’t scratch easily, and can take some serious punishment.
Don’t you hate it when you buy something new, and it breaks after a few uses? So do we. That’s why we took a lot of time to source the materials for the strap.
These are your options:
High-Grade Stainless Steel: Are you harder on your watch than most? Then the stainless-steel strap is a good fit. The mesh looks delicate and comes in a range of colours. Choose between gold, rose gold, silver, and gunmetal.
Italian Leather: A leather strap is a timeless classic. We import ours from Italy to ensure that we get the best quality. If you care for these straps properly, they’ll last almost forever.
Rubber: If you’re working in high-heat, rubber is a good option. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t conduct heat efficiently.
Nylon: Nylon straps are practical and ideal for a casual event. They’re easy to clean and durable. And you don’t have to worry about buffing up leather from time to time.
Vegan Leather: If you’re a vegan, or want a cruelty-free option, vegan leather is a good choice. It’s made from plant matter and looks just like the real thing. The upside is that the industry is more sustainable and cruelty-free.
One modern feature that we did insist upon is water-resistance. We don’t recommend submerging the watch, but water splashing on it won’t do any harm.
Two Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
Finally, we stand by the quality of our goods. In the unlikely event that your watch breaks, send it back in. If we can’t repair it, we’ll replace it.
