What makes Nordgreen’s men’s watch with the black leather band so special?
One of the most quality leather industries in the world comes from Italy. And as we use only top-quality materials for our watches, naturally, we use Italian leather. When you look at the inside part of our leather straps, you will notice a mark that says genuine leather. It’s a sure sign of quality and the origin of our leather straps. If you don’t believe it, smell the leather. The true leather has a rich, earthy smell that can’t be copied, and believe us, many tried.
Also, we use only naturally tanned leather. It’s a process known to Italian leather craftsmen for thousands of years. In this process, the leather is preserved by using only natural ingredients, no chemicals added, and it takes 30-60 days. Although quicker and cheaper tanning solutions exist, they have their downsides. Firstly, chemically tanned leather is of low quality and breaks much easier. And secondly, chemicals used in that process harm the environment, and we can’t let that happen. We base our business on sustainability and environment protection, not just for the profit. We believe in giving back to the community and preserving our planet for future generations. So you understand why we use only nature-friendly leather straps.
What Nordgreen watch models come with a black leather band?
Believe it or not, they all do. As we said, black leather is the mark of elegance, and both men and women can recognize that. So, in our interchangeable band offer, a black leather band takes one of the highest places when it comes to the popularity of choice. You can order our Pioneer, Infinity, Native, and Philosopher watches with the black leather strap option, and even more. Why limit your self with just one color or one material? If you order a Nordgreen gift bundle, you can choose two additional straps and save up to 20% on the total price. This way, you can have an elegant men’s watch with the black leather band, and two more straps for other occasions. Changing a strap every now and then really refreshes the appearance of the watch. All that, without actually having to buy different watches for different occasions.
Are Nordgreen’s black leather watches water-resistant?
We are proud to say our every watch model has a water-resistance, making them an ideal choice for different sets of activities. Infinity, Native, and Philosopher have water resistance up to 30 meters (3 ATM). Our flagship, the Pioneer line, has water resistance up to 50 meters (5 ATM), meaning it’s ideal for casual swimming.
However, leather as a material isn’t water-resistant, not even the Italian leather one, that we use. You should always keep your leather straps away from water, and the excessive heat. Water, especially salt water ruins the flexibility of the leather and causes it to break. If your leather strap gets wet, dry it with a piece of fabric and let it dry on the air. Also, keep it away from the direct heat sources.
Why choose Nordgreen watches?
Minimalistic and elegant design, directly from Jakob Wagner’s source of inspiration. Jakob is one of the most rewarded Scandinavian designers and a mastermind behind the timeless appearance of all Nordgreen watches. Jakob has won four prestigious Red Dot awards for design in his amazing career. The last one he won in 2020, for the Pioneer line design.
Quartz movement, but not just any kind. Nordgreen uses only the Miyota movement and there is a reason why. Miyota offers unmatchable time-telling precision, along with the affordable prices. So you don’t need to spend a fortune on a watch well made.
For every watch bought, Nordgreen supports NGOs in their effort to make this world a better place to live. By buying just one Nordgreen watch you can accomplish a lot. For instance, you can provide clean water to the Central African Republic, save the Amazon rainforests, or give a child in India a chance to educate. And the best part is, it doesn’t cost you anything. When you buy a watch, you just need to register and choose the cause you want to support. We will do everything else. Also, as we like to do the business transparently, you can find all the documentation about the donations when you register.
Stainless steel, and the best sort, the 316L. This type of steel is scratch-resistant, hypoallergenic, and will look brand new for years and years. Also, it’s far more durable than gold or any other precious materials and costs significantly less. And, of course, it comes in a variety of colors, including gold, rose gold, silver, and gunmetal.
