A man’s watch can set the tone for his entire look and personality. So, you want to demand quality from your timepiece, but that doesn’t mean it needs to feature every bell and whistle available from modern technology. We believe it’s more important to make it mean something. Oh, and yes, give you the accurate time!

Nordgreen’s minimalist men’s dress watches come in four designs – the Native, Philosopher, Infinity, and Pioneer. Co-founders Vasilij Brandt and Pascar Sivam collaborated with renowned Danish designer Jakob Wagner to produce these unique timepieces, which are inspired by Scandinavian living and values, and the influence of the past on the world we want for the future.

Inspired by our beautiful capital city of Copenhagen, Nordgreen’s men’s dress watches will add a dose of style and elegance to your look. We are proud to be part of a movement that creates affordable, well-designed timepieces, at the same time being at the leading edge of efforts that give back to society and preserve the environment worldwide.

Our watches designs embody five fundamental principles – heritage, simplicity, functionality, sustainability, and balance. We've instilled the philosophy of hygge into the design of all our timepieces so that every watch you buy is a one that you’ll truly love, and maybe pass on to future generations.

With our exquisite nice men’s dress watches, you’ll undoubtedly make a remarkable first impression on everyone you meet, too. 

Our heritage and commitment are right in our name. 'Nord' represents our identity and values as Nordic peoples, and 'green' recognizes our commitment to the environment and society.

For every watch you buy, you get to choose one of three charitable causes to which we dedicate a portion of your purchase price. You may choose to donate:

  • A month’s free education to one child in India
  • Two months of clean water to one person in the Central African Republic
  • Restoring 200 square feet of rainforest in Latin America

This charitable giving is at no extra cost to you but in honor of your purchase. You can also track your donation by typing the serial number on the back of your watch into our website, so you can follow the blessings your purchase enabled.

Best Men’s Dress Watches Under $200

Nordgreen has a unique range of high-quality, affordable men’s dress watches. Our timepieces deliver an understated sophistication and blend effortlessly with any wardrobe collection for any occasion – without breaking the bank.

The Infinity watch for men is one of our watches that comes in under $200, available in 32mm and 40mm options. It does not have any visible lugs (connecting the strap to the casing), so it maintains a smooth, clean silhouette. Inspired by Mother Nature, the design is pared to the bare essentials and evokes pure simplicity.

The curved and slightly elevated watch casing – in 7.35mm and 8.92mm thickness options – makes this watch more comfortable on your eyes in low-light conditions, at the same time combining with the brushed stainless-steel side to give the watch an expensive look at an affordable price. Choose from a variety of casing colors, including silver, rose-gold, and gold.

Japanese quartz movement powers the movement of the hour and minute hands and, in keeping to the philosophy of the minimalist design, omits a second hand on the white-only dial.

The straps for the Infinity are interchangeable and come in a variety of colors and materials. Choose from black, dark brown, brown, grey, patina-grey, navy blue, pink, and white leather straps. If you want to opt for a dressier look, choose the silver, rose-gold, or gold mesh straps. Or you can wear the Infinity with the new Boheme green interchangeable nylon straps, available with the 40-mm Infinity model.

This watch is water-resistant up to 3 ATM (3 meters), making it perfect for everyday outdoor use. Cycle, jog, hike, or run while wearing this watch in any weather without fear of damaging it.

Infinity’s core inspiration is to represent the evolution of nature without the complexities of modern civilization; it champions the concept of living as simply and as naturally as possible. All told, it comes in as one of the best men’s dress watches under $200.

Nordgreen also offers the Native model in 32mm, 36mm, and 40mm case sizes. This option is all about balance in life and nature, and it embodies the Danish philosophy of hygge – living a fulfilled and balanced life full of contentment and happiness.

You can opt for the Native watches for men in three distinct thicknesses – 6.8mm, 7.5mm, and 8.35mm, depending on how slim you like your watch.

In 2019, Nordgreen also launched the Remodeled Native as part of its new collection. This new addition comes in 36mm and 40mm case-sizing and features vegan leather among the strap options. 

The rounded casing of the Native and Remodeled Native watches results in a unique elevated design. All models have interchangeable dials in navy blue, black, and crisp white, and they feature invisible minute marks that appear only when you need them. This timepiece also has no visible lugs and no second hand, embracing its back-to-basics design.

Japanese quartz movement powers the hour and minute hands, ensuring accurate time-telling.

Choose from 316L stainless-steel watches in gold, rose-gold, silver, or gunmetal. Or, for a dressy watch, select stainless-steel mesh straps in the same color varieties. The Native also features interchangeable leather straps in black, brown, dark brown, grey, white, pink, and navy blue. Vegan leather straps come in black, brown, dove-grey, and navy blue.

You may also opt for the new green Boheme nylon strap on 36mm and 40mm Native models, making it another one of the best men’s dress watches under $200.

This watch is also water-resistant up to 3 ATM, making it perfect for everyday use. Be sure to keep it out of direct contact with water, but it’s ok to wear when you’re walking, running, hiking, jogging, or cycling in inclement weather.

Men's Leather Dress Watches

One of the most popular options among Nordgreen's men's leather dress watches is the Philosopher – a watch made for men who value the past, the present, and creating a better future.

This comfortable 8mm timepiece is minimalist and exquisite, with simple, rounded lines punctuated by lugs. The design prominently features the hour and minute hands, as well as displaying the date and our understated Nordgreen logo. The watch comes in two sizes for men: 36mm and 40mm.

While it comes with a dial that is not interchangeable, this flagship watch has a unique tapered edge that makes its hour and minute hands prominent. Together with an asymmetric second hand that is powered by Japanese quartz movement, this watch delivers pinpoint accuracy that will last you a lifetime.

The Philosopher features a lug width of 20mm and a lug-to-lug distance that is narrower than the 39.5mm diameter of the casing. It also spotlights a high-quality, horizontal brushing on the side of the casing that makes this men's dress watch look more expensive than it is. What's more, this watch is incredibly light, and 3ATM, or 3-meter-water-resistant, perfect for everyday outdoor use.

Choose from a variety of casing colors, including silver, gold, rose-gold, and gunmetal. Straps come in Italian leather and are available in black, brown, dark brown, patina-grey, pink, white, and navy blue.

Also pick from silver, gold, gunmetal, and rose-gold for a mesh strap or from green and navy blue for a nylon strap. Our newest addition is a nylon Boheme green strap for Philosopher models measuring 36mm and 40mm.

Among our newest addition of men's dress watches is the Pioneer. Launched in 2019, this 42mm model is proving to be a bestseller and is available in three dial colors – black, navy blue, and white.

This 11.9mm thick watch represents Nordgreen's take on a chronograph and celebrates Denmark's love for technological innovation that creates a greener future and positive change for humankind. The minimalist dial represents the clean and sustainable environment for which we strive, and the chronograph second hand features red tips that symbolize the tips found on the wind-turbines that power our homeland sustainably.

Choose from gunmetal, silver, or rose-gold casings, and black, brown, dark brown, patina-grey, and navy Italian leather straps. Or opt for vegan leather straps in black, brown, dove-grey, and navy; black rubber straps; or Boheme green nylon straps.

The Pioneer is water-resistant up to 3ATM, so you can comfortably wear it outdoors in any weather, but you should keep it away from direct underwater contact.

Choose one of Nordgreen's men's dress watches and become a part of the revolution. Own a sustainable watch that is exquisite, well-made, durable, and versatile, at the same time capturing the sophisticated minimalism of Scandinavian design and working to improve societies and the global environment.


What is a Dress Watch?

A dress watch is a timepiece designed to be worn on formal occasions or with elegant attire. Often characterized by its slim watch, sleek design, a dress watch typically features a simple, unadorned face and a minimalistic, uncluttered appearance. While functionality is still an important aspect, the emphasis is on aesthetics, making it the perfect accessory for more formal events such as weddings, black-tie affairs, or business meetings. This type of watch is typically crafted from high-quality materials and may include luxurious details such as precious metals, leather straps, and sometimes even precious stones. A dress watch is a timeless and sophisticated accessory that adds a touch of class and elegance to any outfit, making it a staple in any nice watch collection.

Benefits of Owning a Dress Watch

A dress watch is a timeless and essential addition to any watch collection. Its classic design and elegant appearance make a smart impression in formal settings, such as business meetings, weddings, or upscale events. The sleek and minimalist look of a dress watch exudes sophistication and refinement, adding a touch of elegance to any outfit.

In addition to its ability to elevate your style, a dress watch is also known for its lasting durability. With proper care and maintenance, a well-made dress watch can withstand the test of time and be passed down through generations. Its high-quality materials and precise craftsmanship ensure that it remains a cherished piece for years to come.

Owning a dress watch is not just about making a fashion statement, but also about investing in a timepiece that holds sentimental and historical value. A dress watch is a symbol of tradition, fine craftsmanship, and luxury, making it an essential and prestigious item to have in any watch collection.

In conclusion, the benefits of owning a dress watch are undeniable. Its ability to make a smart impression, timeless elegance, lasting durability, and essential role in any watch collection make it a must-have accessory for anyone who appreciates classic style and sophistication.

Types of Watches

Watches come in a wide variety of styles and designs, each serving a different purpose and making a unique fashion statement. From classic analog timepieces to high-tech smartwatches, the world of watches offers something for everyone. In this article, we will explore the different types of watches available, from luxury dress watches to rugged sports watches, and everything in between. Whether you are a horology enthusiast or simply looking for a watch that suits your lifestyle, there is a perfect timepiece out there for you. So, let's dive in and discover the fascinating world of watch styles and functions.

Automatic Movement

Automatic movement in watches utilizes a rotor and mainspring to power the timepiece. The movement of the wearer's wrist causes the rotor to spin, which winds the mainspring and stores energy. This stored energy then powers the watch's movement, eliminating the need for manual winding.

The benefits of automatic movement are significant. Firstly, the convenience of not having to manually wind the watch every day is a major advantage. Additionally, automatic watches are typically more accurate than manual winding watches, as the consistent winding provided by the wearer's movements allows for a more stable and reliable timekeeping.

In contrast to manual winding movements, automatic watches do not require the daily task of winding the crown to keep them running. This makes automatic watches more user-friendly and low-maintenance. The use of a rotor and mainspring in automatic movements not only provides convenience but also ensures that the watch stays running smoothly and accurately.

Overall, automatic movement in watches offers the dual benefits of convenience and precision, making them a popular choice for watch enthusiasts.

Quartz Movement

A quartz movement in a watch operates using a small piece of quartz crystal that creates a constant electrical pulse when an electrical current is applied to it. This pulse is used to regulate the timekeeping of the watch, making it incredibly accurate. The power source for a quartz movement is typically a small battery, which can last for several years before needing to be replaced.

There are two main types of quartz movements in watches: analog and digital. Analog quartz movements use traditional watch hands to display the time, while digital quartz watches use a digital display to show the time numerically.

The Panthère De Cartier Watch Mini Model is a beautiful timepiece that features a quartz movement for precise timekeeping. It is constructed with high-quality stainless steel, giving it a durable and luxurious feel. This watch combines the accuracy of a quartz movement with the elegance of Cartier's design, making it a stunning and reliable accessory.

Mechanical Watches

Mechanical watches are timepieces that rely on a mechanical movement to keep time, rather than a battery or quartz crystal. There are two main types of mechanical watches: manual and automatic. Manual mechanical watches require the wearer to manually wind the watch regularly, while automatic mechanical watches are self-winding, using the natural motion of the wearer's wrist to keep the watch wound.

Mechanical watches come in a variety of designs, from classic dress watches and elegant dress watches to modern and sporty. They are often crafted from high-quality materials such as stainless steel, gold, or titanium, and feature intricate detailing and craftsmanship.

Some well-known brands of mechanical watches include Rolex, Omega, and Patek Philippe, each offering a range of models with unique features and designs. Owning a mechanical watch comes with the benefit of durability and precision, as these watches are often built to last for generations and are known for their accuracy in timekeeping.

What sets mechanical watches apart from other types of watches is their reliance on traditional mechanical movements, creating a timeless and elegant timepiece that is appreciated by watch enthusiasts worldwide.

Pocket Watches

Pocket watches come in various types, including open-face, hunter-case, and double hunter-case. Open-face pocket watches have no cover and are easy to read at a glance, while hunter-case watches have a hinged cover that protects the face. Double hunter-case watches have covers on both sides, providing extra protection.

Historically, pocket watches were a symbol of status and were commonly used until wristwatches became popular in the 20th century. Over time, pocket watches have evolved in design and technology, with brands like Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, and Audemars Piguet leading the way in craftsmanship and innovation.

Materials used in pocket watches range from stainless steel to precious metals like gold and silver, with intricate designs and engravings adding to their appeal. Some pocket watches also feature complications such as chronographs, moon phase indicators, and tourbillons.

Top models currently available in the market include the Patek Philippe Caliber 89 and the Vacheron Constantin Reference 57260, each showcasing the finest features and craftsmanship in the world of pocket watches.

Tool Watches

Tool watches are designed with robustness and functionality in mind, making them suitable for high-intensity activities. They are often built to withstand extreme conditions and are water-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor adventures, water sports, and other physically demanding activities. These watches are not just stylish accessories, but are also practical and reliable tools.

Many tool watches also come with sport-specific complications to enhance their functionality. For example, dive watches typically have a rotating bezel to track dive time, while chronograph watches are often used for timing laps in sports.

A variety of tool watches are available from different brands, offering a range of options to suit different preferences and needs. Some notable examples include the Rolex Submariner for diving, the Casio G-Shock for rugged outdoor activities, and the Omega Speedmaster for chronograph functionality. Each of these watches showcases the robustness, water-resistance, and sport-specific complications that define the concept of tool watches. Whether for diving, hiking, or racing, there is a wide selection of tool watches to choose from, providing both practical functionality and stylish design.

Materials and Colors


Materials and colors play an essential role in the design and manufacture of various products. The choice of materials and colors can greatly impact the functionality, visual appeal, and overall user experience of a product. In this section, we will explore the significance of materials and colors in product design and the various factors that need to be considered when making these decisions. We will also discuss how different materials and colors can be used to achieve specific design goals and cater to different user preferences.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel watches are renowned for their durability and versatility, making them an excellent choice for daily wear. Unlike other materials such as gold or bicolored options, stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, scratches, and tarnishing, making it an ideal choice for those who lead active lifestyles. Additionally, stainless steel timepieces retain their value over time, making them a sound investment for watch enthusiasts.

The benefits of choosing a stainless steel case are numerous. Not only is it incredibly durable, but it also offers a sleek and timeless aesthetic that can easily complement any style. Its versatility allows for a wide range of designs and finishes, from polished to brushed, making it suitable for both casual and formal occasions. Furthermore, stainless steel is hypoallergenic, making it an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin.

In summary, stainless steel watches are a practical and stylish choice for daily wear, offering superior durability and versatility compared to other materials. Its ability to retain value over time makes it a wise investment for anyone looking for a long-lasting and timeless timepiece. You can find some very cool stainless steel watches

Rose Gold & Yellow Gold

Rose Gold and Yellow Gold differ in their properties, uses, and appearances. Rose Gold is a combination of gold and copper, giving it a reddish-pink hue, while Yellow Gold is made purely of gold. The 18K Rose Gold contains 75% gold, making it more durable than the 14K version. Yellow Gold is also available in 18K, but its bright yellow color sets it apart from Rose Gold.

Rose Gold is often used in jewelry due to its romantic and feminine appearance. It can be bicolored, combined with white gold or platinum, for a modern and stylish look. On the other hand, Yellow Gold is traditionally favored for engagement and wedding rings due to its timeless and classic appeal. It is also often used in religious and traditional jewelry designs.

The warmth of Rose Gold adds an elegant touch to any piece, while the boldness of Yellow Gold makes a statement. Both metals can be combined with diamonds or other gemstones for a stunning effect. The choice between Rose Gold and Yellow Gold ultimately comes down to personal preference and style.

Steel Bracelets & Leather Straps

For Nordgreen's men's dress watch selection, the available options for steel bracelets include stainless steel and gunmetal grey. These bracelets are sleek and sophisticated, perfect for formal occasions. The casing colors available for steel bracelets are silver and gunmetal grey.

As for leather straps, Nordgreen offers a variety of colors and materials. The leather strap options include black genuine Italian leather, brown genuine Italian leather, and navy blue genuine Italian leather. The casing colors available for leather straps are silver, gunmetal grey, and rose gold.

These different combinations allow for a wide range of customizable options to suit any style or occasion.
