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.

A very nice watch with a beautiful simple design and not that expensive as well

Mohamed El Kerdany

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.

Cynthia Lau, 28/01/2021

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

What To Look For When Buying a Watches For Teenagers

If you are the parents looking for the best watches for teenage son or daughter, you will need to consider a few key factors. First, is the watch high-quality, water-resistant and durable? Second, you need to consider whether the accessory suits their tastes and preferences. What do they like to emphasize about their own personal style? Let's take a closer look at those two factors.

Practicality and durability

We all know that teenage boys and girls are adventure seekers. They're full of energy and ready to experience what life has to offer. The watch they wear on their wrist needs to match that energy and withstand a beating.


That's why a high-quality water-resistant stainless steel watch is the perfect solution. Why is water resistance an important factor? Well, teens spend a lot of time outside, so naturally, there is a chance of getting caught in the rain. A watch without water resistance will simply get ruined after the first downpour. While there is no need for a dive watch, a solid 3 ATM (30 meters) water-resistance should suffice. Luckily, all of the watches we offer have that feature, and one watch has a water resistance of up to 5 ATM.

Scratch-resistant stainless steel and mineral crystal

The other factor you should consider is scratch-resistance. Teens are not used to wearing something on their wrist that they need to take care of, so they can scratch it unknowingly. We recommend buying a watch with a solid stainless steel case and a mineral crystal glass top. The reason being is that a stainless steel case is simply more scratch-resistant than a titanium, plastic, or even gold one—no wonder why many modern watchmakers choose to use a stainless steel case for their watches. Furthermore, a mineral crystal watch dial is among the most durable and scratch-resistant choices on the market. There is simply nothing better.

Quartz Movement vs. Automatic Movement

Automatic movement watches have been quite trendy recently, and for a good reason. They are self-winding, meaning that there is no need to change batteries or wind the spring manually, as long as the watch is worn almost daily. However, that is exactly why this movement is not the best for watches for teenagers. This watch movement requires consistent wear, which is not guaranteed with teens. Not to mention the hefty price tag these watches usually come with.

We recommend going with a quartz movement watch, which is battery-powered. A quartz watch is a stable choice for a few reasons. First, a quartz movement is considered one of the most accurate on the market. Second, a quartz watch is usually smaller and thinner in size because it doesn't need to fit a lot of mechanical parts, springs, etc., in the case. Third, even though it's battery-powered, the battery lasts around two years, so the upkeep isn't a hassle. At Nordgreen, we use high-quality Japanese quartz movement, more specifically Miyota quartz movement, one of the best on the watch market.

Design features

We strongly believe that a product should be not only functional but also look pleasant on the hands. Before you make a purchase, consider how fashionable the watch design is and how flexible it will be in the adventures your teenager takes in the next few years. Teenagers love trendy pieces, and watches are no different.

Whether you are buying for a boy or girl, find something that is fashionable and beautiful. Guys prefer simple designs, while girls love color and detail. It doesn't have to be overpriced, but it should look stylish and fun. However, we recommend choosing a casual watch that can be paired with everyday outfits. Whether you want to go for a subtle rose gold-tone, a more classic silver color, or a striking black is up to you.

Most teenagers dislike heavy accessories on their wrists, so choose a gift that is both lightweight and comfortable. Some teens love to keep it simple, while others play dress-up whenever there is an opportunity. If your teen loves to dress the part, pick something bright and stylish that will suit any occasion, or keep it simple with something small and minimalist.

Teenagers want multifunction design, precision, and durability. There are great scratch-resistant watches that can meet the needs of youngsters, with a sturdy design to protect against damages. 

Best Watches for Teenagers Under $100

What better way to surprise your teenager than with a stylish watch? A fashionable watch has its perks, especially where your adolescent can alleviate some reliance on their smartphone when it comes to timekeeping.

It is the perfect way to treat your teenager and welcome him or her into the adult world.

You might think that you need to spend money on a new watch, but there are plenty of modern and inexpensive watches for teenagers. From trendy and colorful styles to a classic and sporty watch, there are inexpensive watches under $100 widely available.

You don't have to break the bank to give your teenage boy or girl a watch they will adore. There are cheap watches that look modern and are lightweight and durable.

Another advantage of cheap watches is that most models are easy to clean and maintain. You can find an affordable scratch-resistant watch that is perfect for everyday use and resistant to minor damages. It can be repaired affordably or replaced cheaply with a new one.

Nordgreen's Watch Design

At Nordgreen, we have a total of 7 watch designs for boys and girls. All designs adhere to the Scandinavian principle of minimalism and functional design, which means that whatever timepiece you choose will look great on both adults and teens. Let's go through the designs and their features one by one.

The Native

The Native is our top-selling watch design across all demographics. Its simple dial window is easy to read and comes in white, black, and blue. The stainless steel watch case comes in a silver, gunmetal, rose gold, or gold-tone to fit any style. The Native watch series features a water resistance of 3 ATM (30 meters), the standard with most of our watch series.

For your convenience, we have designed all our watches to have interchangeable straps. That means you can own one watch case and multiple straps and achieve a totally different look every time you switch the strap. A black rubber resin band, for example, is perfect for any sporty activity due to its comfort and water-resistant properties. On the other hand, a black leather or vegan leather band is a classic choice for a formal event or even a day date.

Check out our whole interchangeable strap collection here.

The Philosopher

A timepiece with a more elevated design that makes more of a statement on the wrist is the Philosopher watch series. The watch features an asymmetrical two-piece display that looks great on both adults and teenagers alike. To make sure the dial is easy to read, we didn't create a blue or black dial, leaving only the white dial window option available. However, everything else about the watch can be customized. Choose between a silver, rose gold, gunmetal, or gold stainless steel watch case and any of the watch strap options we offer.

As one of its standout features, the Philosopher includes a small date display on the dial showing the current date. Finally, it is also water-resistant up to 3 ATM.

The Infinity

Possibly our most minimal design yet, the Infinity is a great watch for anyone looking for an easy timepiece with no frills. Featuring a slightly curved dial and a durable stainless steel case, the watch looks great on hands, big or small. The watch band blends in seamlessly with the case. If you just want your watch to tell the time and not distract you from anything, the Infinity is the perfect solution.

Combine the black dial Infinity watch with a black nylon band for a practical everyday option, or go for a classic stainless steel mesh band in rose gold for a more dressy option.

The Infinity watch is water-resistant to up to 3 ATM.

The Pioneer Chronograph

Our flagship Pioneer is a chronograph watch, typically considered a men's watch due to it's hefty 42mm dial size and two sub-dial displays. However, if you are looking to buy your older teenage son a gift to represent his transition into manhood, the Pioneer is the ideal watch for the occasion.

As durable as it gets, the Pioneer watch features a sapphire crystal mineral dial window encased in a scratch-resistant stainless steel case. The crystal timepiece fits an impressive number of features for its affordable price. The large display fits a sub-dial near the 9 o'clock mark, another sub-dial next to the 3 o'clock mark, a small date dial above the 6 o'clock mark, and a stopwatch. You can see why it is typically considered a men's watch - only an extra-large dial can fit so many features inside, and only a bigger wrist can fit such a large watch case.

What is more, the chronograph watch is water-resistant up to 5 ATM, which means it can be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool.

When it comes to the design of the timepiece, you can choose between a black, blue, or white dial color, a silver, gunmetal, or rose gold case color, and almost any of our strap options. We will list all the watch strap options that are available later in the text.

The Unika

The Unika is typically seen as a women's watch due to its delicate design, curved lines, and smaller case size. This watch is an example of the famous minimal Danish design. There are no minute or second hands on the case, which can make it not so easy to read the time for a very young teenager. But, we see this as a unique opportunity to teach your teenage daughter or son to tell the time at a glance, with no markers to help them.

The Unika model comes in a black, white, polished metal, or rainbow black dial color, and a silver, gold, rose gold, or gunmetal case color. Combined any design variation with our selection of watch straps for a personalized watch to fit your unique style.

Interchangeable Watch Straps

We wanted to make our watches wearable both for casual and formal occasions while still staying true to our sustainability pledges. Our interchangeable wrist strap collection makes it easy to switch up your look from day to night and vice versa.

Choose a classic black leather watch band paired with a silver watch case for a timepiece that stands the test of time. Would you prefer your watch to look more dainty on your hands? A rose gold metal mesh band paired with a white dial and rose gold watch case is a beautiful choice. Need a more rugged watch strap? Wear a rubber wrist strap paired with a sapphire crystal watch for a water-resistant and rugged option.

Here are all of the wrist strap options we have to offer: genuine Italian leather, vegan leather, stainless steel mesh or link strap, nylon, and rubber. Make sure to match the strap size to the appropriate case size to create the ideal time piece for you or your teenage son/daughter.
