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.

On what occasions watch makes a perfect present?

We would say, in any occasion. However, there are three great occasions to give Nordgreen watch to someone.

Business gift

As we said, giving someone a watch is quite personal, and to be honest a quite intimate gesture. That’s why it’s not so often in the business world and is more cherished when it happens. To celebrate an important milestone in your business, to reward a truly remarkable employee or a great client, with a wristwatch, you can’t go wrong.

Graduation gift

Graduation is a sign of maturity, whether it is high school, college, or a Ph.D. Gifting a watch on this occasion means two things:

Firstly, you make an hommage to all the hours and years of hard work needed to graduate.

And secondly, you are marking the start of a new era in that person’s life. There are more challenges ahead, and more long hours to spend. So a new watch will give you much-needed confidence, especially as a gift from the person you love.

Engagement or marriage gift

As a gift for engagement or marriage, a watch has a special symbolism. Giving a watch to your wife or a husband symbolizes the time you spent together, and moreover, the time you will continue to spend together.

How to buy a perfect watch for someone

Of course, it’s hard to guess someone’s style and preferences. You don’t want to buy someone a watch not worth wearing, or with a complete opposition with that person’s style. So, here is a few tricks that might help

Pick a minimalistic, versatile watch

Minimalistic watches are stylish, classy, and evergreen. Moreover, they can fit into anyone’s fashion choices. Complicated watches are not a popular choice for women. Men usually don’t like too bright case colors or dial details. But everyone, men and women, knows a stylish watch when they see one. A classic, stylish watch has no excessive details, it isn’t too big or too small. A minimalistic stylish watch should pair well with your casual, and with your formal outfit. 

Select the right watch size

Before making a purchase, give it a time to think. What’s the body type of the person you are buying the watch? What’s its wrist size? Are they fond of bigger or smaller watches? Bear in mind that men mostly wear bigger watches, from 32 mm to above. As always, there are exceptions to the rule. But a watch too small will look like a child’s toy on a bigger wrist. Thus, a big watch on a small wrist looks unnatural and lacks elegance.  

Consider your budget

It’s always nice to have an expensive watch, there are no doubts about that. However, if you need to sell a house to gift someone a watch, perhaps it’s not the right decision. After all, the prices of the many “luxurious” watch brand can be over-inflated. That’s just a result of good marketing, and nothing more. You should never buy a watch just because it’s expensive, and you should never purchase something you can’t afford.

Buy a watch that withstands the test of time
