We all have a different version of the style. But one thing is certain, true style never fades. With this in mind, we started our Nordgreen watch company. Our goal is to provide the world with unique, everlasting stylish watches. However, there are universal rules you need to follow when buying any watch. Those rules apply to aesthetics, design, and at last, finance. We are the Nordgreen company, and we are here to help you. Our Scandinavian values and a way of life are all about helping others. Our goal is to make the world a better place, one watch at a time.
Especially if you are buying your first watch. Your watch should always be fit for every occasion. With a minimalistic design, you can be sure. If you have taste for luxury watches, bear one thing in mind. Heavy watches made from precious metals don’t fit every occasion. You will be limited to wearing a watch only in gala events or business meetings. You need a watch for every day and every occasion.
At Nordgreen, all our watches are minimalistic, elegant, and versatile. Our lead designer Jakob Wagner made sure of that. We have three lines of stylish men’s watches, Pioneer, Native, and Philosopher. The Philosopher line was rewarded with a prestigious Red Dot award for outstanding design. In short, all our watches are fit for everyday use. Moreover, with our system of interchangeable straps, you can diversify your everyday look. Choose leather straps for more elegant look, and mesh or nylon straps for more relaxed events.
Every stylish watch for men should fit the wrist perfectly. If you want to look classy, of course. Some people prefer the overgrown bulky monstrosities on their wrists. But if you are a man with class, there are some fashion rules. Always choose the watch proportional to your hand size and body type. People with bigger hands need watches with a bigger face and a thicker case. A small watch on their hand would look like a toy. However, men with thinner body type and smaller wrist need to choose a watch with the thinner dial and thinner straps. A big watch on a small hand looks unnatural. There are always exceptions, of course. In short, the general rule of the thumb is to choose the watches sized between 34 mm and 50 mm. Everything bigger than 50 mm will draw attention to you, but not in a good way.
At Nordgreen, all our watches are unisex. The neutral, minimalistic design of our watches makes them wearable by both men and women, boys and girls. However, the difference is in size. Through our experience, we drew some conclusions. Our watches sized 32 mm and 36 mm are better fit for women. On the other hand, sizes 32 mm, 36mm, and 42 mm are much better fit for man’s hands.
All our Nordgreen watches have a quartz movement, made by Miyota. There are several reasons for that. Firstly, quartz watches are incredibly precise at telling time. Secondly, they are much more affordable than the mechanical ones. Quartz movement uses electricity powered by a small battery. The battery sends the electrical flow to a miniature quartz crystal, causing it to vibrate. The crystal vibrates fascinating 32,768 times per second. Then, the circuit converts the vibration into the pulse that causes the second hand of the watch to move. That’s how you get the tick-tock sound.
The fact that the quartz movement is based on electricity makes it so precise. Also, with less moving parts inside, they are more affordable, and much more resistant to shocks. Based on the statistics, the quartz movement is in almost every wristwatch in the market. Mechanical and automatic watches are slowly becoming a thing of the past. The quartz watch is simple to maintain. No self.winding, you just need to change the battery every few years. And yes, the batteries are also very affordable.
Did you know that diamonds aren’t that rare or hard to find? But years and years of clever marketing raised the price of a modified carbon sky-high. That’s the thing with luxury watches, too. At least, for some examples.
There are watches worth spending a fortune, too. But we are then talking about grand complications, antique watches, or handcrafted masterpieces, that take years to make. Those are the things worth every penny, of course, if you can afford them. However, some watches just don't justify their price. Their hyperinflated price is just a result of marketing, not anything else. It’s for you to decide then. Do you want to spend several thousands of dollars for a watch that simply tells time, just like any other? Or better, why don’t you spend your hard-earned money on a watch that fits your budget? We mean a nice, stylish watch that won’t burn your budget. Watches made from precious metals are losing their share of the market.
The stainless steel watches are a new trend. Stainless steel is a durable, affordable, and hypoallergenic material. Also, a high polished stainless steel watch is an everlasting elegant fashion piece. At Nordgreen, all our stylish watches for men are made from the 316L stainless steel. That makes our watches, fashionable, durable, and most important - affordable.
