What Is Considered An Ultra-Thin Watch?
This is one of those questions where there is no one-size-fits-all answer to simply throw at it. Like most other things in life, the definition of ultra-thin watches would differ by who has to use them.
Following our design philosophy here at Nordgreen and how we make everything customizable to the last feature, you already know that we allow our men to choose different timepieces in varying parameters – from the stainless steel case thickness to color features all around the watch.
If we were hard-pressed for an answer, though, we would say thin watches are those timepieces with a stainless steel case thickness not more than 9mm. Ultra-thin watches for men would go lower than that, for sure, but how low is low enough?
Why Ultra-Thin Watches Are Fantastic
There are plenty of timepieces you can go with, ranging from large dial wristwatches to sleek, ultra-thin watches. As a unique soul, you'll most likely gravitate towards a specific timepiece that showcases your best features.
Trends come and go, and some watch styles fade into obscurity. These include extreme alternatives, like oversized automatic watch movements. If you want a timeless watch that will always be relevant, ultra-thin watches are the ultimate choice.
Ultra-thin men's watches are excellent for regular-sized wrists. The smaller band and overall profile bring out the definition of your arms, making it way more flattering than a bulky watch that accentuates weak wrists.
You don't need loud or garish accessories to tell people you're a success. Like a thin men's watch, minimalist pieces are a far more effective style statement to that end. Thin watches also make great gifts. Get a watch as a gift for your brother, partner, father, or even your bus driver!
Why Nordgreen Watches?
Nordgreen makes the best ultra-thin watches men value in the market.
We have teamed up with skilled artists and innovative designers in Scandinavia, headed by the multi-award-winning and renowned designer Jakob Wagner. He has subtly infused his unique artistic vision into our timepieces, using the principle of hygge.
Hygge is more than an artistic theory; it's a lifestyle choice. It says that we should assign importance to simple things, which is where the true value lies. By doing so, we wade through the clutter and noise to focus on the things that matter in life.
We employ this principle in every watch we create.
That way, our designs are inherently affordable and minimal, featuring only the essential hour markers and lines with a practical 3 ATM water resistance to match.
Next, we focus our effort on four major models. By minimizing the number of designs that we need to maintain, we simplify your choice and maximize the potential value of each piece. There's no need to browse through thousands of products.
The uncomplicated approach has an added benefit – since we maintain only four models, we keep fewer items in our inventory. It translates to cost savings, which we pass on to you to have a taste of the affordable, quality everyday watches that we carry.
The result is the cornerstone of the Nordgreen promise of quality, luxury timepieces for less than $500.
Nordgreen's super thin watches men adore are also straightforward to operate. We've streamlined the process and removed unnecessary features. You can focus on what the watch was made for – telling the time.
What are the Thinnest Watches from Nordgreen?
Wearing a Nordgreen men's thin dress watch is more than a passing style statement. It's a sure sign that you've adopted the hygge lifestyle and that you genuinely value what matters most in life.
As a company, we live and breathe this minimalistic lifestyle. Jakob Wagner has done an incredible job of infusing hygge into the core of every Nordgreen watch.
Our entire line of men's ultra-thin watches is only made up of four categories. Each signature model has its distinct character to fit different personalities and preferences.
The Pioneer Chronograph
The ingenious, stainless steel, slim watch shows off two smaller dials when you peer into the sapphire crystal. The two smaller dials track minutes and seconds, respectively. It is the watch of precision for the equally precise individual.
A lot is going on in the watch face, but the layout of the piece never feels cluttered or busy. Wagner has managed to cram all that detail into one mechanism and still create a sense of spacious minimalism.
It sports a two-piece dial case shape, protected by an alluring sapphire crystal, complete with elevated hour markers, a minute counter, and a third hand to track the seconds. A date window is located in the dial case. The entire piece is then elevated with a brushed metal aesthetic.
The watch design is for those who want a timeless minimalist look with a little modern touch.
This has to be the best ultra-thin watch on the market today, and we are not talking about the steel case thickness alone.
The slim Native line represents some of the best things to happen to the stainless steel, quartz movement timepiece market when minimalism and style are important considerations. Doing so much with so little going on, it is little wonder why this dress watch has caught on with the women as much as the men.
For the genuinely elegant, the Native model is an ideal choice. It features only hour markers and nothing more, achieving a clean aesthetic. The entire wrist watch feels casual, timeless, and elegant.
Lastly, we have Infinity, one of the simpler designs in our line-up. It features only minimal designs on the minute and hour markers and a dial below the durable sapphire crystal bare of a date window or lugs for distraction.
A 3 ATM water resistance rating puts this one up there with low-impact outdoor timepieces. The design element, though, makes the ultra-thin quartz movement watch best suited for official functions.
Customizable Stainless Steel Case Watches at Great Prices
The fantastic thing about Nordgreen wrist watches is that the selection gives you plenty of room for customization despite having a few major designs. It gives you enough creative freedom to formulate the style that best represents who you are and who you want to become.
Each design model gives you color options for both the stainless steel case and the dial. The dial features color picks ranging from clean and pristine (white dial) to sleek and elegant (blue dial). You can even choose a navy blue finish for something different - or choose to stare at the silver-tone dial when you look through the sapphire crystal barrier.
A nice men's stainless steel watch in the silver-tone is always a classic choice, so be sure to keep that on your radar.
The case color showcases more unique hues, such as gunmetal, gold case, and rose gold case. It gives you a chance to show off the tone that suits your personality.
Finally, you can customize the wrist watch band. There are a variety of colors and materials on offer. You can even get two or three straps and swap them according to the mood or occasion.
Some prefer the brown leather strap for how it helps them pair a dress watch functionality to the appeal of an otherwise outdoor wrist watch. A leather strap also works wonders for slim watches since it can be worn tightly.
When water resistance is considered, you might want to trade the brown leather strap for a rubber or nylon band. To make the watch still suitable for work and double as a dress watch while still carrying decent water resistance, see what the stainless steel straps have to offer.
By playing around with these color and strap options, you'll be able to achieve truly unique combinations on these ultra-thin, slim watches. We are certain you'll be able to find the watch that truly has your innate style.
Your watch is your identity, so own it the way you have always envisioned.
Buy the Best Men's Thin Watches
For the best ultra-thin watches, you won't find anything of more value than the Nordgreen range.
We use only the most solid craftsmanship and precise engineering to achieve genuinely world-class luxury watches. By combining that precision with the minimalist principles embodied by hygge, we can also sell our slim watches to you at prices that are sure to be a pleasant surprise.
We offer the best value-for-money luxury watches anywhere in the world, and we're proud of how we've carved out this niche in the market.
No matter what category you are shopping for - from the rugged outdoor watch to the stylish dress watch - we have the right slim watch for you.
Affordable Doesn't Mean Cheap
Being inexpensive and minimal doesn't mean our quality has been compromised. Our lead designer, Jakob Wagner, is at the helm of our design operation. We've managed to secure only the best materials from the world's top manufacturers for use in our watches.
We use only the best quality quartz movement parts in our watches. The components hail from the renowned company Miyota, one of the legendary names in the Japanese watchmaking industry. It's thanks to this essential component that your Nordgreen watch can tell time accurately down to the nanosecond.
Battery-wise, we only use heavy-duty alternatives with a guaranteed lifespan of two to three years. The dial is encased in hardened mineral glass to protect the delicate hands and inner mechanism from wear and tear.
It gets interesting with the Straps
Even our interchangeable straps are made with only the finest features in mind.
Other watch brands treat the strap as an afterthought, using subpar material and inferior finishes. We believe that straps are an integral part of the entire aesthetic for a Nordgreen watch, and we treat it with as much care and attention as the delicate watch mechanisms.
Each of the four types of straps has been produced using high-quality materials and versatile functionality. For those looking for a clean and modern look, you can't go wrong with stainless steel in gold, rose-gold, silver, or gunmetal tone. The material has the benefit of being durable and easy to clean.
For a more timeless mood, choose our Italian leather strap. It's made with only the best quality leather to create a soft, luxurious, and supple texture. Italian leather is also surprisingly durable. Choose between elegant blue, classic brown, black, and more.
If you're going outdoors into a harsher environment, you need a strap that can keep up with you. A rubber strap is essential to outdoor living, and it is a more rugged material. It can withstand the worst conditions that nature can throw at it and exude a youthful vibe that is desirable to any man.
Something for the Vegan Community
Lastly, if your lifestyle choices prevent you from eating or using animal products, Nordgreen is prepared. You can opt for our vegan leather straps, made with 100 percent animal-free material. It's trendy and guilt-free and as kind to the environment as your eco-conscious wardrobe.
Backed by Trust
All our watches are also designed to last. We offer a comprehensive two-year warranty covering all manufacturing defects to show how confident we are about our craftsmanship.
Send the watch back in if you're not satisfied, and we'll ship a replacement to you. No questions asked.
We do this because we want a Nordgreen watch to be the last stop when looking for the most functional watch you'll ever need.
Where thin Watches Excel
Trust us when we say that we have seen many watch trends and fads that have faded into the background in no time. If anything, we don't want to be a part of such experiences that end up not being memorable at all – or get memorable for the wrong reasons.
It is not every day that you come across a watch that measures thin – and how they have been able to stand the test of time to make a difference today still.
If you were wondering where these sleek watches could stand out for you, here are some traditional and not so common approaches to take:
It is considered rude to come to a dress event and spend more time on your watch. It looks as though you have somewhere else important to be and do not care for the event at hand at all.
At the same time, your overall outfit is not complete if you don't have a stellar timepiece to match the good work you have done on other fronts.
Thus, a watch that doesn't bring too much thickness to the table does wonders for you.
Now, you can complete your outfit without bringing too much attention to the ultra-thin, slim watches on your list.
Even while walking the dog, fixing the garden pipe, or visiting friends, you don't want a timepiece that gets in the way. The first place to look for such a clutter-free, everyday watch is the case thickness.
Cut down on the excesses there, and you have a casual, better-fitting watch to take out with you.
You don't need too much on an outdoor watch. For starters, you need a watch that does what is asked of it – and maybe a few extras that you are sure to use every day.
This is not the time to go with a mechanical watch/thin automatic movement watch that could die when you don't wear it.
It is, rather, the time to trust how the quartz movement lies low in an ultra-thin case. In some cases, you can choose such a minimalist, ultra-thin watch to have a date window and other dial features that will enhance the experience for you.
What's the use of the watch if it would get in the way, anyway?
Who said you needed to have any reason other than personal preferences to like a slim watch? Not us.
If watches for men with smaller case thickness are what do it for you, grab them.
Fashion trends might come to show you how the best men's watches are bulky ones. If our minimalist experiments here at Nordgreen are anything to go by, it shows that fashion rules are meant to be challenged and even broken.
How else do you plan to stand out from the crowd if you are doing everything like the rest of the world?
Don't Break the Bank
The engineering precision that goes into any watch that measures thinly enough to be considered an ultra-thin watch is no small feat. That could drive up the prices that most manufacturers slap on their units, but not us.
We don't achieve our cost savings by shaving off the quality of materials we use for your watches. We, rather, combine a series of other subtle approaches to making things easier on your budget.
For one, we have perfected the art of making the simple, Miyota Japanese quartz movement work for all our watches. Thus, we don't have to deal with many moving parts from a mechanical movement watch that would have driven up the price.
Next up, we take off everything that you don't need on the watch dial and leave the basics in there. A watch is designed to tell the time, and our units do that well. The Pioneer is big enough to comfortably hold two chronographs on the dial that look just as good as they are functional.
We round that up by keeping to only a small number of affordable watches – so we don't have to deal with a lot of inventory, meaning cost savings for us and you.
