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.

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.

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

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.

From mechanical to quartz watches, there are many timepieces to add to your collection. For men who prefer wearing a watch daily, we recommend scratch-resistant models, which are made of high-quality material and suitable for everyday use.

Quartz watches are known as one of the most accurate and affordable watches. It is the perfect choice for men who like elegant design, less maintenance, and guaranteed durability. It has fewer moving parts, and a quartz watch is more durable than other men's accessories.

You can also find a great watch at an affordable price. The better-looking models are the most expensive, but it comes at far more reasonable prices than automatic and mechanical options.

How to Choose the Right Model?

For many guys, finding the right watch can be overwhelming. There are so many models and styles to choose from that the act of buying a new watch is often stressful and confusing.

For your first watch, it is best to choose a model that features a minimalist and classy design. These watches offer versatility and are great to wear to any event. A good-looking timepiece will complement any style or outfit, so if you are not ready to spend money on several watches for different occasions, buying a minimalist wristwatch will give you the most bang for your buck.

When it comes to choosing the right size, the proportion is one of the most important aspects to consider. You only need to focus on finding a watch that will compliment your shape and look great on your wrist.

If you are a bigger man, a suitable option might be a wristwatch with a large display or prominent clock face. A smaller watch risks a dainty look. If you have a slimmer profile, it is better to go after a men’s watch with thin features and small dials, instead.

There are different types of watch movements, but these generally fall under quartz or mechanical. Mechanical watches have sweeping seconds and smoother motion, and most luxury brands offer mechanical watches.

Quartz watches are more accurate and durable, though. It is also the option that’s easiest to clean and maintain.

There are many models you could add to your collection, including titanium watches (which are more expensive than other models but worth the price), stainless steel watches, and scratch-resistant watches that you can wear every day.

Some are more affordable, too. A good-looking watch that will compliment your style and reflect your personality shouldn’t cause a dent in your wallet, so make sure that you consider both your style needs and budget in the final decision.

Are Cheap Watches Worth Buying?

Once you decide what style you need, you can set a price range that suits your budget. While it is true that expensive brands have a wide variety of watches, cheap or affordable watches can meet your needs just as well in terms of quality, design, and features.

There are great cheap men’s watches out there that look expensive and add to your style. There is no need to break the bank for a good quality watch. Affordable watches are good enough for any modern man. At Nordgreen we have plenty of watches to choose from whether it is for the teenage boy, adult children, or the father of the family!
