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.

A soldier should be exceptionally tough and strong-willed. Military and outdoor watches should have the characteristics of a refined soldier. They should have the capacity to bear up to the harshest conditions in addition to offering specialized functionality.

If you are looking for a robust watch that you can depend on in your military missions or outdoor expeditions, you must choose a watch with the right features. Military and outdoor watches are extremely durable.

The durability makes them ideal for a vast range of outdoor activities. Nordgreen's military and outdoor watches are a perfect choice for hikers, mountain climbers, marathoners, fishers, hunters, scuba divers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. So, what should you look out for when choosing men’s military and outdoor watches?

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.

The best men's military and outdoor watches focus primarily on durability and functionality. To get the value for your money, you should purchase one of Nordgreen Men’s Military and Outdoor Watches. There is a variety from which to choose.

Here are a few considerations to help you make the right decision when choosing the best military or outdoor watch:


A military or outdoor watch should have a robust design. It should be a color that doesn’t draw lots of attention. Muted color is a key characteristic of timepieces used by military personnel, hikers, hunters, and other tactical outdoorsmen.

Nordgreen offers a selection of military and outdoor watches featuring rugged designs and dark colors such as black and dark gray.

Military Features

Besides the standard features such as time, day, and date, an excellent military watch should also have more advanced features. These may include a compass, barometer, altimeter. The compass and altimeter are beneficial for navigation.

The barometer, on the other hand, provide you with the atmospheric pressure data. You can use the data to forecast the weather. Some military watches also come equipped with moon calendar, sunrise/sunset times, a storm alarm, and other advanced tactical features such as automatic shot detection. 

Power Source

There are several different types of power sources for military and outdoor watches. Nonetheless, solar and kinetic powered watches are the most popular. If you want to stick to tradition, however, a mechanical or automatic powered watch can be an ideal choice for you.

Men’s military and outdoor watches are available in six different types of power sources. These are mechanical (hand-wound), automatic (self-winding), solar-powered, kinetic, quartz, and precisionist. If you want an endless supply of power, you should consider investing in a solar-powered military watch.

Other Features

At times, we purchase a device only because it has features that will come in handy for a particular purpose or an upcoming activity. If you’re a hiker or you just exploring new places, you would want a watch that has a built-in GPS.

Top Ten Outdoor Watches From Nordgreen

If you’re looking to choose from the top ten outdoor watches on the market, you can’t go wrong with Nordgreen watches. A Danish watch brand established in 2017, Nordgreen offers some of the best minimalist outdoor watches on the market.

The stunningly designed watches come at prices that most people can afford. Let’s explore what Nordgreen Men’s Military and Outdoor Watches have to offer.

Nordgreen Pioneer

The Nordgreen Pioneer is a unique piece of art. It looks natural and stylish. It pairs perfectly with a casual or smart-casual outfit. 

This timepiece is an innovative take on the chronograph watch. Nordgreen makes it like a classic aviator but with a touch of modern Scandinavian design, and it consists of solid materials.

It requires minimal maintenance and should last for many years to come. A Miyota Caliber 6S21 quartz movement powers the watch. This Japanese movement is a consistent, reliable, and great value.

Many watchmakers love to use Miyota because it’s difficult to break down. You don’t have to worry about malfunctions. Maintenance is easy, and you can expect to get at least a three-year battery life.

Nordgreen Pioneer comes in a selection of dial colors – black, blue, and white. It is available in three case colors – silver, rose gold, and gunmetal. This timepiece comes in one size – 42mm.

Nordgreen Native

The Nordgreen Native is an elegant minimalist watch for men. Nordgreen recently redesigned this watch to incorporate a few new features. The Native is now available in three sizes – 32mm, 36mm, and 40mm.

However, the 32mm is most suited for women. If you’re a man with a somewhat small wrist, the 36mm is an ideal choice for you. Nordgreen comes with soft and comfortable leather straps, something you can’t find in many watches.

The Nordgreen Native’s case back is a snap-off to keep the design clean throughout, with no screws or indentations. Contrary to many people's worries, this design doesn’t have a significant impact on the watch’s water resistance. 

This timepiece runs on a Miyota GL20 quartz movement. The GL20 is a much simpler design compared to other Miyota movements. The design makes the watch energy-efficient, so you can expect it to give you at least a five-year battery life.

The Native's slim, simple design is ideal for an understated look. You will just be as comfortable wearing it in a casual setting as you are in a formal setting.

The price of the watches is inclusive of delivery. You don’t have to worry about any surprises when making an order. You can expect to receive your watch in two to five business days. 

You will receive all the shopping details in your email immediately when you make an order. Nordgreen will also tell you when you can expect your package, so you always know when your new military watch will arrive. If you have any issues with the shipping of your product or any questions, Nordgreen’s customer support team is always ready to help.

If you are not satisfied with the product you receive, Nordgreen gives you 14 days from the date of delivery to return your watch for a full refund. You also have the option of exchanging your new watch or strap for something different.

In the spirit of upholding excellence and the best level of quality in the industry, all Nordgreen watches come with a two-year warranty from the date of purchase. If your watch is giving you any trouble, get in touch with customer service, and they will assist you accordingly. 

The Best Military Watches in 2020

If you’re looking for the best military watch in 2020, you should try Nordgreen watches. Nordgreen military watches allow you to enjoy elegance and luxury at a pocket-friendly price. While Nordgreen designs the watches to withstand the harsh conditions of the wild, you can wear them for any occasion.

While there is a wide selection of watch brands to choose from on the market, Nordgreen should be your first choice, thanks to their attention to detail and luxury. The brand designs its military watches focusing on simplicity, minimalism, and functionality.

Another attribute that sets Nordgreen apart from the competition is how they package their products. Nordgreen military watches come boxed in an attractive, long matte blue box with a white insert. They make their boxes from recycled paper and felt.

Thanks to the long packaging, unboxing the product creates an aura of suspense. The watch sits on a padded felt base. Two elastic bands secure it in place. If you’re looking to buy a gift for a loved one, this box makes Nordgreen Watches a perfect gift, especially for military personnel or any tactical outdoorsman.

What’s more, if you want to have a few extra straps for your military watch, you can take advantage of Nordgreen’s discounted bundle. This bundle comes in a special gift box. Nordgreen also allows you to contribute to charity. 

For every watch sold, Nordgreen donates a portion to one of three causes. You get to choose which cause to which you want the donation to go. Simply type in the serial number inscribed on the back of your watch and decide where your contribution goes. Nordgreen has partnerships with charitable organizations that educate children in India, supply clean water in Africa, and conserve the rainforest in South America.
