Does Nordgreen have men’s watches with interchangeable bands?
Funny you asked that. Not only do we have them on offer, but all our watches, both for men and women, come with interchangeable watch straps. The next question is why? Why should we make men’s watches with interchangeable bands? Isn’t it easier to produce standard watches with non-changeable bands? To be honest, that would make more sense if you look at us as a big, evil capitalist conglomerate. But we are Scandinavians, born and raised. Our Danish values simply don’t allow that. We can’t expect our customers to buy a ton of different watches for different occasions. That would be unfair to them, and we can’t let that happen. The satisfaction and the trust of our customers are the lifeblood of our company, and we wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that.
What are the advantages of the men’s watches with interchangeable bands?
Easy style adjustment
No more worrying if you will look unprofessional with your rubber watch. No more outfits that don't match. If your suit of choice is blue, pair it with a navy blue leather strap. Going to a black-tie event? In a few seconds, you can change your strap to a formal black one. A casual party later? Just pull out a mesh band from your wallet or a pocket, and the party can get started. Also, you wouldn’t believe how good your usual watch looks when you simply change the strap. It refreshes the appearance and gives you a feeling of a brand new watch.
Money, money, money…
As we said, it’s unthinkable and unnatural to have to buy a watch for every occasion. Of course, as watch aficionados ourselves, we know a guy or two with an almost unlimited collection of wristwatches. But this is not about them. We like to think we make every one of our customers happy, not just the watch collectors. And the price difference between buying a new strap instead of a new watch can be pretty significant. Instead, why don’t you take a look at Nordgreen’s gift bundles? When you buy a watch, pick two additional straps, and you can save up to 20% on the total price.
Prolonged durability of the straps
Of course, every single one of our straps is made to last, in a process we personally supervise. But every material in the world has its advantages and disadvantages. That’s a fact, there is no such thing as an indestructible strap material. But, by changing your straps according to occasions, you can prolong their life. So next time when you are heading to the beach, just change your usual leather strap to a rubber one. Finished with the day of sunbathing and water sports? Wash your rubber band and let it dry. In the meantime, grab a nylon or a mesh strap and place it around your wrist. You get the picture. By carefully changing and maintaining your bands, they will last longer.
Can I use Nordgreen straps on other watchmakers’ models?
Of course, you can, we are nice guys, we told you that already. So:
- our 16 mm strap fits all 32 mm watches
- 18 mm strap is used for 36 mm cases
- and, the 20 mm strap fits both 40 mm and 42 mm watches
We have no intention of limiting our buyer’s choices because we like our customers, and they tend to like us back. Over 7000 great customer reviews on Trustpilot and Feefo speak for themselves. We even got a Feefo Gold Trusted Service Award in 2020. Once again, thank you, guys.
How to pair my watch with my outfit?
There are a few golden rules, but nothing is set in stone. A darker dial, the blue or black one, goes well for a formal occasion, while the brighter one is for a semi-formal and casual appearance. It’s quite the same as with the watch strap colors. Black is the classical choice, then the brown and the blue, and then the others. In short, dark colors are formal, bright ones are not.
As for the material, the first, most stylish, elegant, and obvious choice is leather. Especially our fine Italian leather of first-class quality. Leather takes the first place for a reason. As a material, leather is natural, resembles human skin, and also goes perfectly with an elegant outfit, especially when you pair it with your shoes and a belt. So for a conservative workplace or a classy black-tie night, go with leather and you can’t go wrong. Also, our vegan leather is a good alternative, with almost the same properties as the natural one, so you can use it for the same occasions. Our mesh bracelets are considered semi-formal, and they can go well with trendy fashion choices, like combinations of jeans and formal suits. Nylon and rubber bands are generally used for casual situations.
Your watch, your rules. Nothing can stop you from expressing your style. In fact, with our rich choice of materials and colors for our interchangeable bands, we encourage that. With the versatile and elegant design of our watches, paired with our straps, your choices are almost unlimited.
