Probably the best Scandinavian watch
I wanted a special memento of my favourite city, Copenhagen. This beautiful watch is exactly what Danish design is all about; beautiful, simplistic and modern. I look forward to many hyggelig moments with it.

Can definitely recommend buying from Nordgreen
Very pleased with my purchase - exactly what I was hoping it would be. Very quick delivery , well packaged. Would definitely recommend. Particularly like the scheme where part of the purchase price goes to an eco scheme.

I'm completely amazed

When simplicity is everything
A very nice watch with a beautiful simple design and not that expensive as well

The ordering and processing of my order was very smooth and my order arrived in 3 days! I had made an error on entering the address and had contacted Nordgreen right away. They were able to change the address at the warehouse and sent me a confirmation which took away the anxiety.

After seeing my not so positive online review about their lack of response to my issues with my previous watch the Nordgreen team were quick to suggest a replacement and organise delivery
I like the watch on my shirt. It is a nice watch to wear. Simplistic and beautiful at the same time. I value this purchase. Thank you.
When it comes to pilot watch, there's only one criterion in determining the best: How practical it is.
Manufacturers produce an endless stream of varieties. Every supplier online showcases pilot watches from luxury brands. These sell for thousands of dollars, with companies forgetting that there are plenty at price points in between.
These timepieces not only speak to fashion but also lifestyle and piloting activities (which is the focus of our article). They look outstanding, but the price is prohibitive. Not everyone can afford a price point of over $1,000.
That’s why we're here to find the world's best pilot watch under $500.
Traditionally, the best pilot watch has some distinct features that address the pilot's needs. These might include seeing the numbers quickly under any weather conditions, an extra bezel marking for calculations, and dual time features that allow the pilot to track different time zones conveniently.
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.
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.
Other features might include altimeters, compasses, chronographs, and slide rules that will enable pilots to measure calculations with ease. It’s this array of features that make an aviator’s watch quite pricey.
Finding an affordable, yet the best pilot watch under $500 is extremely difficult.
That’s why we’ve taken a close look at our range. These models aren’t traditional aviation watches in terms of features. You wouldn’t get a full-featured option under 200 or even 500 dollars.
Our models are the same in terms of classic styling, precision, and quality. They’re priced under $500 without looking cheap. They’re the creations of Jakob Wagner, the top Scandi designer.
Each model is the epitome of the Scandinavian concept of Hygge.
Hygge’s quite a far-reaching concept. It entails bringing more contentment into your life by simplifying. Our watches embrace the simplicity of design that is the trademark of this concept. Danish watch brands have fully embraced this concept.
At Nordreens, we made a choice early on – quality or features. In true aviator style, we chose quality above an extensive range of features.
Our watches don’t have all the bells and whistles, but they work flawlessly. With our high-quality options, you’ll never be late for your flight again.
We craft each wristwatch in our range to provide you with the best quality at fair prices.

Nordgreens focuses on simple styling and flawless design. Our Pioneer model is part of our premier range and has the classic elegance of an aviator’s watch. It was designed around the classic chronograph but offered a more pared down look. At Nordgreen, it is hands down the best pilot watch under $500.
There are two dials on the face – the second’s hand and the stopwatch.
Unlike our other models, the dial here comes in one size only. It’s a bold 42mm and perfect for making a style statement. We don't offer smaller sizes in this model because it would look cramped. We do provide other customizations.
The Philosopher offers a more pared-down style than the Pioneer. It doesn't have inset dials. What it does have is the date and a third hand to count away the seconds. The hours and minutes are marked too. That makes it easy to stay on track during any pre-flight checks.
Don’t like the chronograph look? Want a pilot-quality watch without all the fussy features? Then the Native might suit you better. Only the hours are marked on the dial, so it’s the perfect minimalist option.
Want something that offers the clean lines of the Native and the extra detailing of the Philosopher? The Infinity has the hours and minutes marked. It doesn't have the date on the dial or a second hand. The overall design is cleaner because there are no lugs.
