A perfect timepiece for your business meeting and your date is our Philosopher men’s watch in silver, with a black leather strap, and of course, a white dial to reveal the Philosopher’s two-part, conically-shaped dial.
Wristwatches are fashionable accessories for men now. It wasn’t always so. Up until World War I, men preferred to use pocket watches. During the war, things changed. Soldiers had to have ready access to their watches.
Trying to get a pocket watch out while under fire proved dangerous. So, the soldiers came up with a crude version of the wristwatch. The trend caught on from there and has stuck ever since.
Nowadays, we don’t typically need a watch. Your smartphone can serve the same function. Interestingly enough, though, men today use watches instead for much the same reason as the soldiers did – convenience.
There are many practical considerations here. Checking your timepiece instead of your phone can:
- Make it easier to sneak a peak during a boring meeting or date.
- Prevent you from being distracted by apps and messages on your phone.
- Last for around two years without being charged. Or, in this case, changing out the battery.
Aside from practicality, there are also other considerations:
- Wearing a timepiece tells the world that you care about punctuality.
- You can use the piece to display some personality in the office, even in a more conservative environment.
- Men have a limited number of acceptable accessories to wear. A timepiece is an excellent way to complete your look. Many models make it easy to change out the straps. You can create a whole new look by swapping out the straps.
- The style you choose says something about your personality. Sticking to classic styling portrays an image of confidence. You don’t need to prove anything to anyone.
- A well-crafted timepiece, in a classic style, doesn’t date. You could pass your watch on to your son after you.
- A simple timepiece will look good with any style. You could wear it to the office, on a date, or to a barbecue with friends.
Watches are about more than just telling the time. Yes, they’re convenient, but they can also help you convey the right image to those that you meet.
What to Consider When Choosing Your Timepiece
How do you choose the perfect timepiece? Do you have one or several of them? Here are some things that you should consider before buying:
Is it a fashion piece? It’s fun to stay up to date with the latest trends. But you don’t want to throw money away. A fashion piece will have limited usefulness. It’s going to be in vogue for the season, but not afterward.
Is it good quality? A cheaply made watch might lose time, or die on you after a few months. It’s better to spend a bit more and get a decent one.
Designer or not? This depends on how much you want to spend. A new Rolex, for example, will cost over $6,000.
What features does it have? What features do you need? A diving watch looks cool, but do you need all those features? Would you even use half of them? Is it worth paying for those features if you’re not using them?
Our Selection of Men’s White Dial Watches
Our brief to our designer was simple – embrace the spirit of hygge. Hygge is a Scandinavian concept. It’s all about embracing simplicity. The simpler your life, the more you get to enjoy it. We wanted our designs to be simple in keeping with this principle.
Our Four Main Designs
This design is a perfect example of Danish innovation. It’s a simplified chronograph, with two smaller inset dials. You’ll be able to count off the seconds with the one dial. The other functions as a stopwatch.
The Pioneer’s case is high-grade stainless steel. The glass front is domed to make it easy to see the face. The design is simple and stunning.
This is our most uncomplicated design. The face only has the hour marks etched into it. It really doesn’t get much simpler than that. The result is an uncluttered dial that’s easy to read, and that looks great. This watch features lugs and a rounded case.
The Philosopher is a show-stopper. It’s perfect for you if you like to know the time down to the second. It has a third hand to count off the seconds. There is also a date on the face. The case is made from stainless steel and features two lugs.
The rim of the dial is sloped and made from brushed steel.
The Infinity falls somewhere between the previous two models. There is no date or third hand on the face. The minutes are marked, though. This design is ideal if you have smaller wrists. It doesn’t have lugs, and this helps to streamline the look.
Why Buy from Us?
Nordgreen is a company with a social conscience that combines exquisite design and great value. We knew from day one that we wanted to create a more affordable designer brand. That’s one of the reasons that we’ve kept our line so simple.
We had to make a choice – cut features or cut quality. We couldn’t offer both and also the same great prices. We don’t compromise on quality, so the extra features had to go. Instead, we focus on choosing top-notch components.
That’s also why each timepiece is assembled by hand and thoroughly inspected. We’re not about to flood the market with junk that you need to replace in a few months. By creating pieces that last, we’re reducing the number of pieces that end up in a landfill.
You can hold us to our high-quality standards. We offer double the standard industry warranty (one year). If something goes wrong with the watch in the first two years, we’ll replace or repair it. We’ve also made the return process as simple as possible through our site and agents.
Another area that we won’t compromise on is design. We enlisted the help of one of Europe’s top designers, Jakob Wagner. You get a flawless design piece that will still be fashionable decades from now.
What Components do We Use?
Putting cheap batteries into any product is a false economy. You’ll have to replace them every few months. Our batteries will last two or three years easily.
The Best Movements
Miyota is a Japanese company that produces highly accurate movements. The movements are what helps your watch to keep perfect time. You’ll find Miyota movements in most good brands.
Tough Mineral Glass
Sapphire glass is one of the most robust mineral glasses out there. That’s why the mobile phone industry prizes it so highly. It doesn’t crack easily and is scratch-resistant.
Our straps are designed to swap out easily. All of our straps are interchangeable. Just match up the dial size to the right strap. We do this because it creates even more value for our clients. You can change the look in mere minutes by changing the strap.
High-Grade Stainless Steel: Stainless-steel is suitable for harsh environments. It’s not easily damaged and is highly durable.
Italian Leather: We source the best leather. Look after it properly, and it will look rich and warm for years.
Rubber: Rubber is a convenient alternative. It works wells in harsh environments or an office. It’s also great for casual wear.
Nylon: Nylon is not going to get you far in the boardroom. Still, it’s an excellent alternative when you’re out and about in your spare time.
Vegan Leather: Vegan leather is a sustainable alternative to real leather. It looks the same and is plant-based.

All of our models are water-resistant up to three atmospheres. If you’re caught in the rain or spill water on your watch, it’ll be just fine.
