These two models are the most comfortable out of the range of men’s watches with an understated, slim design that makes them the ideal everyday watch. By focusing on these pared-down and minimalist designs, so indicative of the Scandinavian way of thinking, Nordgreen gets to keep manufacturing streamlined and efficiently, resulting in only the best pieces that’ll fit in with any occasion, be it formal, smart casual, sporty, or festive.
As a Danish watchmaker, at Nordgreen, we wholly embrace the concept of hygge – a way of life that promotes living with happiness, balance, contentment, and completeness. All our watches draw their inspiration from the excellent living to be had in our beautiful country Denmark and especially in the capital city, Copenhagen.
Therefore, when you buy a Nordgreen watch, you’re purchasing an investment that will give back for years to come. All our timepieces use only premium-grade components to ensure that your watch lasts through the years. Revel in 316L stainless steel casings, real Italian or high-quality vegan leather, 3ATM water-resistance, sapphire and domed glass, and Japanese Miyota Quartz movement that make all our watches a desirable and high-quality accessory.
The durability and style of our timepieces that communicate heritage, balance, simplicity, sustainability, and function, is what our co-founders Vasilij Brandt and Pascar Sivam envisioned. This vision led them to seek out the renowned Danish designer Jakob Wagner, to produce these exquisite men’s 32mm watches.
When you buy a Nordgreen watch, you’re also investing in the future of our planet and giving back to less privileged societies all over the world. One purchase empowers you to donate to one of three worthy causes in our Giving Back Program:
- A month’s free education for one child in India
- Two months’ clean water for a resident of the Central African Republic
- The restoration of 200 square feet of Amazonian rainforest in Latin America
This charitable giving is one of the core reasons why we established Nordgreen. All donation costs are built into the price of the watch, so you won’t have to dig deeper into your pocket. You can also track your donation on our website using the watch’s serial number located at the back of your watch casing.
Men’s Watches Less Than 32mm
The Infinity timepiece for men is an impressive display of the best of Scandinavian design philosophy – minimalist, functional, balanced, yet striking in its contemporary aesthetics.
Part of the men’s 32mm watches collection, this timepiece communicates a sophisticated yet pared-down design, something we can appreciate every day in the beauty and simplicity of Mother Nature from which it draws inspiration.
At first glance, the Infinity looks like an everyday timepiece that has nothing standing out about it. However, this watch grows on you and over time, displaying its Scandinavian prowess at minimalism, exquisite artistry, and contemporary aesthetics. It wears just as well as it looks and offers watch enthusiasts a high-quality timepiece that feels comfortable day after day.
By removing all design complexities, something Nature does very well; the Infinity is a minimalist timepiece that displays only the essentials.
Key features on the Infinity include:
- 32mm case size, with an option of 40mm
- Gold, silver, rose gold, and gold watch casings
- A pared-down crisp white dial with no date display and no second hand
- Elongated hour and minute markings
- Tapered sides
- A lug system that is incorporated into the watch case
- Durable Italian leather, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh straps in a variety of attractive colours
Infinity watch cases have broader and more polished profiles than either cousins: The Philosopher or Native models. The use of Japanese Miyota Quartz movement and diamond-cut watch hands combine the operational efficiency of the watch with striking visuals making this timepiece a pleasure to read.
These watch hands seem to slice through time on the dial, and this action shines through the elongated hour and minute markings. Above all, the Infinity is comfortable to wear, made even more so by the tapered sides and hidden lugs that feed seamlessly into the watch case.
Besides, the accents that make up the dial are super sleek, and the refracting light from the curved, tapered edge highlight shadows like a traditional sundial.
What is perhaps most striking about the Infinity are its invisible minute marks that only appear at the appointed time. Nordgreen’s Infinity lives up to the reason why it was designed – to “remove the complexities that modern living has brought to Earth.”
Choose watch casings that come in rose gold, gold, or silver, and in 32mm and 40mm sizing.
Interchangeable straps complete the customisation and look of this watch as they come in Italian leather, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh, and in a variety of colours including black, black croc, dark brown, brown, navy, grey, pink, or white for leather, and black, dark grey, brown, and navy for vegan leather. You may also opt for gold, rose gold, or silver stainless steel mesh straps to match the colours of the watch cases.
The Infinity is eloquent and straightforward; its slightly curved dial, contrasting brushed-silver and sheen case textures, as well as a hidden lug design, all translate into a gorgeous wearable timepiece.
This premium watch makes you think of quality Scandinavian artistry that heralds their way of life – a beautiful design that is not loud, pretentious, or busy.
32mm Men’s Watches
Looking further at Nordgreen’s women's 32mm watches, you can’t help but notice the Native and Remodelled Native models.
As with all Nordgreen timepieces, the Native has incorporated Japanese Miyota Quartz movement into its very core, housed in a durable 316L stainless steel watch case. The casing, unlike with the Infinity, has protruding lugs that connect to interchangeable quick-release straps.
The Nordgreen Native comes in 36mm, and 40mm watch case sizes, but also in a newly launched Remodelled Native 32mm watch case to suit all manner of men’s wrists.
Compared to the Philosopher and Infinity models, the Native has a slimmer grooved ring holding the cover of the watch face, making it curvier and more rounded, and giving this watch a masculine yet softer design.
The Native watch designs are all about living in harmony with Nature, balance, and appreciating and enjoying an unrestricted life free of the constraints of time. The lugs angle downwards, and in the process, lift up the watch case from your wrist with a subtle effect. The case also features an all-around polish and sheen that seamlessly blends in with the sapphire crystal and domed glass housing on the dial.
The timepiece has curves that extend outwards and beneath the slim profile, tapering toward the centre. A contrasting spun-metal circular spot at the centre of the watch also gives a comfortable base that sits effortlessly on your wrist.
Key features of the Native include:
- 40mm case sizing with an option for 36mm, and 32mm in the case of the Remodelled Native
- 6.8mm, 7.5mm, and 8.3mm case thicknesses
- 16mm, 18mm, and 20mm straps
- Rose gold, gold, silver, or gunmetal colour casings
- Black, white, and navy colour interchangeable dials
- Minimalist features on the dial with no date display and no second hands
- Softer watch hands with rounded tips
- Italian leather, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh straps in a variety of attractive colours
The Native’s minimalist design is sophisticated yet understated. The craft and detailed design features give this watch a softer, more refined nature than our industrial Philosopher or Pioneer models.
With a minimalist dial that lacks both the second hand and date display window, the Native comes in gold, rose gold, silver, or gunmetal watch case colours and interchangeable straps in leather, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh.
The watch straps feature 16mm, 18mm, and 20mm widths and come in a variety of attractive colours, including black, black croc, dark brown, brown, grey, white, pink, and navy for leather. Vegan leather straps also feature black, dove-grey, brown, and navy shades.
As with the classic Native design, the Remodelled Native launched in 2019, is perfect for men who prefer an even more low-profile watch. These new watch designs come with a 32mm watch casing, sapphire crystal, and domed glass, and also feature 6.8mm, 7.5mm, or 8.3mm watch cases in gold, rose gold, gunmetal, and silver.
Choose from interchangeable black, white, and navy dials, as well as rubber straps in addition to Italian leather, vegan, nylon, and stainless steel mesh straps for a truly customised look.
Perfect as an everyday minimalist watch, the Native is one of our softer, more refined 32mm men’s watches that are uncomplicated and harmonious. This timepiece will fit into your everyday life without being outlandish, but rather by being harmonious and super-comfortable as any true Scandinavian would be.
