His and Her Watch Sets by Nordgreen
His and her watch sets are a great choice for gifting the person you love. However, it wasn’ always like that. One of the most widespread superstitions was that buying someone a watch means bad luck. The source of that superstition lays in China, and as always, the fault lies in grammar. In the Chinese language, to say ‘giving a clock’ (送钟 sòng zhōng /song jong/) will sound precisely like the Chinese words for 'attending a funeral ritual' (送终 sòng zhōng). Thus it is bad luck to gift watches, or any other time-measuring instrument, as it resembles nearness of death. However, different parts of the world have different traditions. For instance, in Russia, giving someone a watch is a sign of friendship and a desire that the person receiving it lives a long and successful life.
At Nordgreen, we like watches. We like designing them, producing them and also think they are a perfect gift to give and to receive.
