Setting your sights on antique or vintage-style watches could run you into the thousands, no matter the currency. On the other hand, you could invest in vintage-style watches at a more reasonable price.

Our designs are created to hold their value well into them becoming vintage. For an authentic vintage look, always go with a white dial and a black or brown strap. Our men’s and women’s watches are too good to be true when it comes to capturing a vintage style. 

Its rounded edges and vague hourly marks will prompt you to be in the moment, even though your Native timepiece reminds you of a time long since past.

For the earth

Our commitment to earth first echoes the principles of Danish society, seeking to inspire positive change by giving back to the world. Wearing Nordgreen gives you the chance to donate to one of three global sustainability organisations via our Giving Back Program.

For form and function

Created by award-winning designer Jakob Wagner, our minimalist Danish designs honour form and function in equal measure, with each having a different story to tell. These are modern classics: watches designed for everyone, everywhere.

Got a love for the vintage, and a longing for the fashionable days of old? Are you a watch lover that needs a timepiece to complement your passion for beautiful accessories that transport you back to the past?

Nordgreen has a selection of excellent vintage-style watches that will most certainly meet these needs.

Our co-founders Vasilij Brandt and Pascar Sivam wanted to create the best affordable watches on the market. They collaborated with distinguished, award-winning Danish designer Jakob Wagner to realise ideal beauty wrapped up in a watch.

We are at the forefront of producing vintage-looking watches that adhere to the ethos of Scandinavian minimalist design. Our vintage watches are glitzy enough to stand out on your wrist, yet understated enough not to overpower your wardrobe.

Nordgreen watch designs effortlessly match every look you aspire to achieve and will fit into any occasion, be it formal, festive, or dress. Additionally, our beautiful watches are customizable. Choose an everyday style that strikes you, and then jazz it up to achieve that vintage look you so desire.

You may also opt to purchase our affordable vintage-style watches in bundles that allow you to buy a variety of watch casings and straps together in one go. Change up the dial colour on all our ranges (except on the Philosopher range) depending on your current mood or wardrobe requirements.

Nordgreen believes in heritage, simplicity, functionality, balance, and sustainability. These core principles inform our every decision, design thought, and strategy. We heartily embrace the Danish concept hygge; we believe that no life lived outside of happiness, completeness, and wellness, is worth living.

As in times past, we strive for simplicity and efficiency – our watches showcase this pragmatic Danish attitude and display the characteristics of a sustainable, green, fulfilled, and wholesome lifestyle.

If you love the times of old and want to embrace these philosophies with a vintage-looking watch, choose one of our minimalist, exquisite, and yet affordable vintage-looking timepieces.

Besides investing in quality vintage-looking watches, when you choose to invest in a Nordgreen watch, you are improving societies all over the world and investing in the future of our planet.

Your watch purchase enables you to donate to one of the three causes worldwide that we care so much about and that we contribute to with our Giving Back Program.

Choose with every watch purchase, to donate to:

  • Restoring 200 sq. ft. of Amazonian rainforest in Latin America
  • A month’s free education for one child in India
  • Two months’ clean water for one person in the Central African Republic

This charitable project is one of the main reasons why we established Nordgreen. We strongly believe in sharing the core Danish values of sustainability and a high quality of life with the rest of the world.

We’re lucky to live in Denmark, the “happiest country in the world,” and we want to share this happiness and quality of life with all. We do this, in a small way, through the sale of our watches.

All donation costs are included in the price of each watch, and you can keep track of your donation on our website by keying in your watch’s serial number, which helps you to monitor the impact of your gift.

Vintage Looking Men’s Watches

If you’re into the vintage look, why not consider our range of Nordgreen’s vintage-style watches for men?

Nordgreen’s Philosopher timepiece for men, part of our range of men’s vintage-looking watches, is designed to celebrate the power of thinking innovatively and of thinking towards the future while respecting the past.

Created by award-winning Danish designer Jakob Wagner, it has an elevated watch case, tugging lugs reminiscent of spokes on a wheel, and a clean brushed-silver stainless steel casing that provides the finishing touches to its one-of-a-kind design.

Admire too, the asymmetric second hand that appears to continuously slice through time, reminding us to both honours the past and plan for the future. The watch has a conical shape that’s wider at the base than at the face, creating a sharp white, two-piece dial that draws your eye to its very centre.

Or you could opt for the men’s Pioneer, our flagship watch, with a minimalist dial that comes in black, white, or navy blue. This watch is synonymous with the simple-living and sustainable environment we have in Denmark, and that we want to see adopted all over the world.

The Pioneer also has a third-hand stopwatch for greater accuracy and a Chronograph second hand topped with red tips that hark back to the red tips found on wind turbines off the shores of Denmark.

What a beautiful design the Pioneer has that reminds us of Nordgreen’s bond to be a world-standard sustainable watch company that mirrors the sustainable outlook of its homeland.

Choose from the vintage-style watch case colours of gunmetal, silver, or rose gold on this 40mm-only watch that comes with vintage-looking straps to match in the same colours as the watch case.

If none of the above takes your fancy, Nordgreen’s Native watch for men might tempt you. 

It has an elevated design, a result of the rounded case, and a clean dial that comes in white, navy blue, or black. Its invisible minute marks are its most unique feature, and the rounded lugs on the watch case define the watch’s classic intentions and pay homage to a past age.

These perfectly balanced vintage-looking men’s watches come in two men’s sizes – 36mm and 40mm – with four striking case colours – rose gold, silver, gunmetal, and gold. They also have interchangeable straps that match the watch case colours, and that can be redefined to achieve the perfect vintage look.

And finally, we have for you the Infinity watch for men – THE watch that embodies pure simplicity, designed with only the essentials on show. This range of men’s vintage-looking watches has no lugs on their watch cases, has no date on the dial, and also lacks the fine detail of the hourly marks.

The deep curvature of the dial that comes in white only reminds us of the infinite space-time continuum of which we are an inescapable part, beautifully complemented by the extended hourly marks that glide right up to the edge of the watch dial.

Interchangeable straps connect directly into the watch, allowing you to match the watch to any style, making it suitable for any occasion and for achieving that perfect vintage look.

Vintage Looking Women’s Watches

Nordgreen has an impressive collection of vintage-looking ladies’ watches that will both complement and delight. If you are in search of a minimalist, statement-making timepiece that will stand the test of time, then you’ve come to the right place.

What stands out about our timepieces is how beautifully-designed and yet affordable they are. As a lady looking to achieve an expensive, vintage, fashionable look, you won’t go out of pocket to get a quality watch that has timeless appeal.

Pick the Infinity watch for ladies, part of our range of vintage-looking women’s watches designed to connect with the evolution of nature and cut out the complexities of modern living.

The minimalist watch case with no lugs, the lack of hourly marks on the white-only dial, and the removal of the date yield a simple design that’s polished and understated. The deep curvature of the dial reminds us of infinite space-time, punctuated by the extended hourly marks that glide to touch the edge of the watch dial.

Choose from 32mm or 40mm sizing, as well as interchangeable straps that come in a variety of colours and materials, but notably in rose gold, silver, or gold mesh to match your watch case and achieve that perfect vintage look.

You may also love the Philosopher timepiece for women, with a conical-shaped case that has a broader base than face, and a sharp white-only dial that draws our eye to the very centre of the piece.

The elevated watch case with a clean brushed vintage look and tugging lugs provide the perfect finish to a watch with a truly unique design. Choose from interchangeable straps in a variety of colours that allow you to match your watch to your wardrobe.

Another of our antique-looking watches for women is the Native and Native Lille range of vintage-style watches for women.

The elevated design of the Native is a result of its raised, rounded case surrounding a clean dial available in black, navy blue, or white. Invisible minute marks and rounded lugs define the watch’s classic roots with a vintage rose gold, silver, gold, or gunmetal casing.

This perfectly balanced watch is suitable for not just women but men, boys, and girls too.

The Native, which comes in 36mm and 40mm cases, now has a younger sister: the Native Lille, which comes in the more delicate 32mm watch casing. Choose from four vintage-looking case colours – silver, gold, rose gold, or gunmetal, and a myriad of strap colours to create an unforgettable vintage look.
