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

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

Beautiful Timepiece

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.

The first usage of the term hypoallergenic dates from 1953, to a cosmetical campaign. The literal meaning is “lower allergenic”. In other words, products marked with this feature produce less allergic reactions. Although, this term lacks some medical explanations. During these modern times, people started developing allergic reactions to lots of things. Sadly, watches are also included. As a responsible company, we feel we need to explain some things. Especially about making our watches. We will try to break some usual myths about hypoallergenic watches. Also, we will give you some useful information. Don’t forget, the Nordgreen company is here for you.

What wristwatches are hypoallergenic?

If you have no allergies, well, every watch is. But, people often confuse hypoallergenic, nickel-free, and nickel-safe terms. They are not similar. Don’t forget, you might be allergic to lots of materials. That includes rubber, silver, gold and many more. The most common alergies people have are nickel, leather, and a rubber allergy. At Nordgreen, all our watches are hypoallergenic and manufactured with the highest standards.

Nickel allergy - word of the experts

Nickel allergic contact dermatitis is a red rash. It appears on the skin of the people with a nickel allergy. This type of allergy isn’t life-threatening and can be simply solved. You just need to avoid the nickel. Nickel allergy isn’t hereditary but acquired by a long-time contact with the nickel. Moreover, 12%-15% of women and 1%-2% of men in the world are allergic to nickel. And, a very small percentage of that people are hypersensitive to nickel. The most important part is that items can contain nickel and also not trigger the nickel allergy. Every high-quality stainless steel contains a small percentage of nickel. However, it doesn’t release the nickel in the amount that causes allergies.

Leather and rubber allergy

Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is the most common cause of leather allergies. DMF is a chemical compound used for tanning the leather. Individuals who are sensitive to DMF will experience severe skin reactions. Rubber allergy is also one of the most common ones, caused by petrochemicals. Both leather and rubber allergies have almost similar symptoms:

  • Itchy skin
  • Burning hot skin
  • Dark or red rash
  • Dry and rough skin
  • Skin that peels

Although annoying, these allergy types don’t possess a serious threat to your general health. Avoid contact with those materials, and pay a visit to your doctor. The usual medical treatment is cortisone creams and antihistamines.

Not every irritation is an allergy

That’s the most common mistake people make. According to dermatologists, the answer is much simpler than that. The skin in the contact with any part of the watch can get irritated. That happens often during the hot summer days. Sweat and moisture become a playground for all sorts of bacteria. Keep your watch clear. That’s essential if you have a habit of tightening your watch around the wrist. Always leave some space for the skin to breathe.  The key is to maintain a high level of hygiene. Also, we don't recommend sleeping with a watch on your hand.

Consult a dermatologist or an allergist

If you are experiencing rash problems or possible allergy problems, we advise you to visit a doctor. Seek professional help in establishing the source of your problem. Maybe you don’t even have an allergy, just a bit sensitive skin. If the problem persists, it would be best for you to take an allergy test. Patch testing is the most accurate way of determining the diagnosis. The doctor will apply small amounts of allergens to your skin. Generally, two to four days are needed for accurate results. Of course, that depends on your skin’s sensitivity.

Where to buy hypoallergenic watches?

At Nordgreen, of course. All our hypoallergenic watches are made using the highest industry standards. We make every carefully designed case from 316L stainless steel. This type of steel is commonly used in medicine. Crafting durable surgical instruments and medical implants is impossible without it. It doesn’t corrode, doesn’t rust, and has no chemical reaction with your skin. Every stainless steel type has a small percentage of nickel inside, but don’t worry. The usage of 316L stainless steel is the safest procedure. The nickel inside will not react to your skin or cause you allergies. Hence, all the Nordgreen watches pass the EU directives on Nickel ion migration. That makes our watches completely safe to use.

As for your concern about the strap material, don’t worry. We got you covered. You can choose from the finest Italian leather, vegan leather, mesh or nylon. Of course, all our straps are interchangeable, so you are not limited to one material. You will be amazed by the possible combinations of colors and materials that we offer.

Also, we intend to make the world a better place.  Our Scandinavian way of life teaches us to be responsible. Social responsibility and giving back to society are our goals. For every watch purchased, Nordgreen donates money to different NGOs. Choose from one of our watch lines: Infinity, Native, Pioneer, and Philosopher. You will get a designer’s masterpiece suitable for every occasion. Also, you will help the ones in need. You can choose from one of three goals:

  • two months of clear water to an individual in the Central African Republic
  • one month of education to a child from India
  • helping to preserve 200 sqft of rain forest in Latin America

Conclusion

After all, we couldn’t make it without you. Your sincere, unbiased reviews are a great motive to us. Once again, thank you for the level of trust you show us every day. Rest assured that we will keep our level of high quality, sustainability, and flawless design.

Allergies are a great problem in the modern world. However, ignorance can be an even greater problem. We were more than glad to help you with solving any dilemmas regarding the allergies.
