Our daily routines can often be chaotic and full of demanding tasks that require us to be on time. Finding the simple things in life, just became more straightforward with our Nordgreen minimalist men's watches. We designed our watches with the intention of not getting in your way when you need to know the time.

Holding most true to being simple, with an intriguing two-piece dial that sets your sights on the heart of the matter, is our Men's Philosopher watch. All of the Philosopher's style combinations are uninvolved with being flashy — a simple timepiece making a simple statement of finesse.

When you think of a man on top of his game, who has made it, what comes to mind? Expensive suits? A well-groomed appearance? Convertible cars?

All these indications do point to a man's success in a materialistic world. More than useless purchases, these are symbols of excellence, hard work, and perseverance that have lifted him to rise above the rest.

One of the best and most inconspicuous ways to show this success is with an elegantly designed watch, though.

A watch says a lot about you. It tells other people that you value time and a sense of order in your life. It also indicates that you value other people's time as well and will do everything to respect their goals and ambitions.

Now, imagine a successful millionaire wearing a watch. Is it a complicated and large watch? Or is it minimalist and refined? The chances are that it’s closer to the latter.

Genuinely successful men place value on quiet sophistication and understated elegance that a minimalistic watch provides. Minimalism is a movement that's rooted in simplicity. By focusing on the essentials, one can bring about the specific aspects that provide life with beauty and meaning.

Don't get us wrong–flashy watches have their place. You may even own one yourself. When it comes to class and style, though, it's hard to beat a minimalistic approach that’s free of distractions.

Nordgreen Values Minimalism

At Nordgreen, we are believers in minimalism as a way of life. It’s the driving force behind every watch we build. Our guiding principle is the Scandinavian concept of hygge, which states that the small things in life are more significant.

That’s where we focus. We make our designs uncomplicated and uncluttered. Every design element serves a purpose, or it is excluded.

By employing this pragmatic approach, we focus our attention on what matters. The simplicity is where the beauty of our watches genuinely shines.

Hygge is more than just a design principle; it’s a whole new way of life. It tells us that we should reduce the clutter in our schedules and our homes and create a stress-free lifestyle.

Not only do we minimize our design concepts, but we’ve cut down on the number of watches in our catalogue as well. Our entire category consists of four distinct models. Fewer choices give you more power and a greater sense of satisfaction with your final choice.

Concluding that you have fewer styles to choose from would be entirely incorrect, though. By employing interchangeable straps with case and dial colour choices, you have hundreds of style combinations to call your own. It’s amazing to experience such creative freedom with only four watch models.

By reducing the inventory that we need to maintain, we can minimize the cost of our production, and pass on the savings to you. It is how we maintain the Nordgreen promise: stunning luxury watches at less than $500.

Hygge isn’t just an aesthetic choice, though. It has economic benefits as well. Our minimalist watches for men provide you with an opportunity to spend less and own less while enabling you to make a unique style statement.

Minimalist watches for men

Announcing to the world that you’ve made it doesn’t need to be a loud or tacky affair. It’s going to have the opposite effect since ‘overdoing it’ makes us seem like an imitator.

You might be tempted to sport a loud, high-fashion piece. It will look great on you while it’s trending. These styles tend to fade quickly, though, and then what happens to your collection of outdated accessories?

You’ll be left with a watch stuffed into your bottom drawer, an embarrassment you’d never choose to wear again.

Wearing something minimal is timeless. There’s something about a minimal timepiece that quietly projects power and class on its own. It’s more practical and won’t fade through fashion trends.

It will be the one that you’ll be able to pass along to your children’s children. Look at any heirloom watch. It’s probably something that will still fit well with your outfit, generations later.

Minimalism is something we strive for here in the quotidian at Nordgreen. From the beginning, our founders wanted a collection of timeless watches that embodied that spirit of meaning and value. So, we teamed up with the best artists and designers in Scandinavia, who agreed with our vision, headed by the respected Jakob Wagner.

Our vision merged with Wagner’s, a simple perspective that creates the best minimalist watches for men and the best minimalist watches for women. The results truly speak for themselves.

Nordgreen is the best men's minimalist watch provider, but it doesn’t just look amazing. It also a positive impact on your overall lifestyle choices and point of view.

Our watches are designed to fit well with any outfit. Whether you’re fully decked out in a suit for a crucial client presentation, or lounging around at home, our range of Nordgreen watches will match the moment.

Minimalist designs go with just about anything. It doesn't call attention to itself and complements other features, like your outfit. The ease of pairing simplifies your life drastically, as you don't need to give it much thought, nor do you need to own an array of watches to customize your style.

Our watches are designed for straightforward to use. We believe that they are made to tell time, and that’s enough. It’s the perfect accessory for the stylish man on the go.

Why Nordgreen Has the Best Minimalist Watch

Nordgreen watches are some of the best quality on the market. We employ only the finest craftsmen to produce these timepieces, which are meticulously handmade and individually inspected before entering the showroom. By the time it reaches your wrist, you're assured of a timeless piece that will function reliably for years to come.

If that’s not enough, all Nordgreen watches carry a two-year warranty. Send any unit with a manufacturing defect back to us, and we'll replace it—no questions asked. It is our way of saying that we have absolute faith in our products, and we want you to have the best Nordgreen experience possible.

Our watches are also durable and sturdy, with a waterproof casing made of heavy-duty, scratch-resistant glass.

Affordable minimalist watches for men

When we founded Nordgreen, we set out to create the most affordable minimalist watches for men. The reasons they’re cheap may not be what you would imagine, however.

When minimalism is priced competitively, it sometimes looks like the minimal aesthetic was used as an excuse to lower the costs and claim credit for the idea. At this point, minimalism is only used as a marketing ploy.

Nordgreen does not buy into these deceptive tactics. For us, minimalism is at the core of what we do. We build these watches because we believe simplicity is an absolute beauty.

The fact that we can produce the best cheap minimalist watches men love is a bonus on our part.

We never lower the price by sacrificing on quality, either. Aesthetics are equally important to us, and we will never compromise on our values for the sake of a quick buck. We only use the best materials from the top manufacturers in making our watches.

The heart of any watch is the time movement parts. If this isn’t up to par, then you’ll have an inaccurate timepiece. Nordgreen sources its parts from the Japanese industry leaders Miyota, one of the best watchmakers in the world. The legendary company ensures our critical components are flawless, which means your Nordgreen watch will be accurate down to the last second.

The batteries we use in our watches are also quality, guaranteed to last a minimum of two to three years. The dial is protected with a sturdy mineral glass cover, which is both durable and scratchproof. It will survive most bumps, and still appear new for years down the line.

The critical element of the design for your Nordgreen watch is the interchangeable straps. Rather than just being an afterthought, we sought the best materials and finishes for this all-important feature.

You can choose among four different material types for the band. Each type of strap still embodies the minimalistic principles of Nordgreen, while having a unique personality that you can call you own.

For a modern yet elegant look, the stainless-steel strap is ideal. It’s a durable material that’s easy to maintain and clean. It’s an excellent choice for formal and corporate occasions.

If you want something more sophisticated, Italian leather is stunning. Nothing beats the warmth and softness that the leather gives, and it is ideal for accompanying you to more special events.

When it comes to a more casual or rugged look, rubber takes the cake. The rubber strap is perfect when you're taking your watch into harsher environments, like hiking outdoors, or rock climbing. The durability of the rubber is superb.

Finally, if you're concerned about the environment and have individual lifestyle choices that prohibit you from using animal products, you can extend that to your Nordgreen watch. Our vegan leather straps are 100 per cent made from non-animal sources so that you can stay in style with complete peace of mind.

Our watches are also water-resistant, so there's no need to be overly protective of the accessory, rain, or shine.

Nordgreen watches might be minimalist and aimed at a lower price point, but they are never inferior.
