Many would agree that a watch makes a man (and of course, a lady too). The folks behind Nordgreen couldn’t agree more. Every one of their Scandinavian designer watches is a representation of taste, personality, sportiness, class and sophistication, sometimes all at once. Nordgreen watches promises you the chance to get a true Scandinavian design timepiece, designed by Jakob Wagner who is responsible for designs from the likes of Bang & Olufsen, at a price point which is below the industry average. It currently operates 16 online stores in 16 countries with Singapore being its latest additions. Shipments, however, do take place on a global scale.
Nordgreen Watches – The Bang & Olufsen Designer Behind These Danish Timepieces
The brainchild behind Nordgreen designs is none other than Jakob Wagner, a renowned Danish designer. He’s won numerous awards. designed products for Bang & Olufsen, and other major Scandinavian brands, and even designed a firefighter breathing apparatus that’s featured in MoMA. Jakob is known for understanding user behaviour, simplistic design, superb craftsmanship, and functionality beyond what you even thought was functionality. So, that’s why Nordgreen wanted to work with him.
Nordgreen Watches – The Three Design Series
1. The Philosopher
This series celebrates our ability to think differently. The shape of the case is conical, with a base wider than its face, creating a sharp characteristic two-piece dial that brings us hurtling through time to this moment now. The watch case has an elevated, and clean brushed look because of the way that the lugs tug under it. The asymmetric second hand that appears to continuously slice through time reminds us to learn from the past, act now, and create a better future. Shop your Philosopher in the men’s category!
2. The Native
This design series is all about balance. Scandinavian’s have found that balance is the secret to a happy life. The clean dial, subtle, light grey minute mark, and rounded lugs celebrate the feeling of balance at its essence. This perfectly balanced designer watch is the right watch for every occasion. Shop your Native in the women’s category!
3. The Infinity
This series is pure simplicity. Jakob Wagner wanted to remove all the complexity, leaving just the essentials. The watch doesn’t have the lugs, the date, and the fine detail of the hourly marks. The cone-shaped case, deep curved dial, and hourly marks that attach to the edge of the face move our imagination into thinking about the infinite space of the universe. Shop your Infinity in the men’s category!
Nordgreen Watches – Proud Legacy Of Nordic Design
Nordic design is a movement which gotten popular in the early 20th century and became proliferated across the world by the mid-1950’s. This wave introduced the concept of minimalism, functionality, and simplicity. While mid-century modernism was taking hold globally, Scandinavian countries still held onto their lead when it comes to leading-edge watch designs. This unfortunately also translated to a hefty price tag that comes with most of these Scandinavian design brands even until today. This unaffordable to the masses is something that Nordgreen wants to change.
