Nordgreen’s collection of minimalist and elegant women’s 36mm watches is available in two design specifications – the Native and its remodeled sleeker version, the Native Lille, and the Philosopher.
Jakob Wagner, our Chief designer, collaborated with our co-founders Pascar Sivam and Vasilij Brandt, to realize these beautiful and unique timepieces for women that are inspired by the unencumbered and sustainable way of life in Copenhagen.
The growing influence of Danish values and Scandinavian design in recent years has been realized in our watches, celebrating the beauty of simplicity, the elegance of balance, and the importance of function, connecting the wearer to their watch.
We are proud to have created a movement of environmentally-conscious women who care about where their money goes, and choose to buy their clothing, shoes, or accessories with ethical brands. Nordgreen is at the forefront of ethical fashion; everything we do promotes a simple, sustainable way of life.
Our women’s 36mm watches exemplify five main design principles – heritage, function, balance, sustainability, and minimalism. We’ve respected and embraced the Danish philosophy of hygge in all our designs to make sure that every timepiece we produce is balanced and functional, and one that you’ll truly love, to pass onto loved ones in future generations.
We want our watches to inspire you! By wearing one of our exquisite timepieces, we want you to be the lady who makes heads turn, sparks a conversation, and makes an excellent first impression on everyone you meet. All our models are customizable; change up your look in a heartbeat whatever your wardrobe, the occasion, or if you want to match your mood.
Our brand name Nordgreen belies our heritage and commitment. ‘Nord’ is a nod to our identity and values as Nordic peoples, ever the explorers in search of the new; ‘green’ is for our commitment to green living and the environment. Denmark is one of the most balanced and content nations on earth, and we’re proud to be inspired by our core Danish values of green living, balanced living, happiness, and contentment.
Every watch you purchase enables you to donate to one of the charitable causes that we support through our Giving Back Program in Africa, India, or Latin America. You can donate to any of the following projects to improve the lives of people living in lesser privileged societies:
We have designed this program so that all charitable donations are made at no extra cost to you. The price of the gift is built into the price of your watch. You may also track your donation on our website. By typing in the serial number located on the backside of your watch case, you’ll be able to monitor the impact of your gift.
Bask in the sophistication and elegance of our flagship watch for women - the Philosopher. This watch is perfect for women who appreciate heritage, value the past, act in the present, and are excited about creating a better tomorrow.
Key features of the Philosopher include:
The Philosopher has the distinction of being both minimalist and sumptuous at the same time. For women who are looking to purchase a statement piece, this exquisite watch with rounded and straightforward lines and lugs has prominent head-turning features.
Its design features the hour and minute hands as well as the date. For those who prefer an even larger version, the Philosopher also comes in a 40mm case size.
The white-only dial is not interchangeable as with the other Nordgreen designs, and the casing has a sharp tapered edge that makes the watch’s extended hour and minute hands stand out. The watch also features an asymmetric second hand powered by Japanese Miyota Quartz movement, which is the power behind the accuracy of all our watches.
Boasting a high-quality, horizontal brushed-silver finishing the Philosopher is the perfect addition to your formal watch collection. These watches feature a lug width of 20mm and lug-lug distance of 39.5mm and are, despite their sophistication and feature-packed design, incredibly light with decent 3ATM water resistance that’s perfect for everyday outdoor use.
Choose from gold, rose gold, silver, and gun metal case colors, as well as, depending on how thin you like your timepiece, two watch case thicknesses of 7.2mm and 7.8mm.
These women’s 36mm watches also feature interchangeable 18mm or 20mm straps, which come in real Italian leather, nylon mesh, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh options.
And herein lies the power of this watch: you can change your strap effortlessly using the quick-release mechanism as often as you fancy. Should one strap wear out, you only have to replace it with another of your choice.
The straps come in black, dark brown, brown, pink, patina-grey, white, and navy blue for the leather options, olive green or navy blue for the nylon straps, and black, brown, navy blue, and dove grey for the vegan leather straps.
Also, you have the option to pick gold, rose gold, silver, and gun metal stainless steel straps for a dressier look.
The newest addition to the Philosopher women’s 36mm watches is the Philosopher Nylon Boheme. This model features a rose gold or silver finishing with a nylon olive green strap for a smart casual look. It comes in both 36mm and 40mm sizes, along with 18mm or 20mm straps.
For women who prefer sleeker, more low-profile watches, we offer you the Native and Native Lille women’s 36mm watches.
The Native comes with a 36mm case size, but also 32mm and 40mm for those who want to go one size smaller or bigger, respectively. The Native models are all about balance, living in nature, and appreciating and enjoying life without worrying about time. This timepiece best embodies the Danish concept of hygge – approaching life with balance, happiness, and contentment.
Key features of the Native include:
The Native has a minimalist design that is sophisticated and understated. Wear it without fear of overpowering your outfit; it will blend in whatever the occasion, be it formal dress, sporty, casual, or smart casual.
Opt for cases 6.8mm, 7.5mm, and 8.35mm thick. The rounded watch case gives this watch a sleek finish, and the ability to interchange dials adds to the customization factor.
Perhaps the most striking feature of the Native is its invisible minute marks that only appear when they need to, and the lack of lugs takes this watch back to basics.
The Native is powered by Japanese Miyota Quartz movement that gives the watch its time accuracy. Paring it down further, we have removed the second hand for a bare minimalist dial.
Choose from 316L stainless steel watch casings in gold, silver, rose gold, or gun metal and interchangeable straps in leather, vegan leather, or stainless steel mesh.
The straps come in 16mm, 18mm, and 20mm, and a variety of desirable colors, including black, brown, dark brown, grey, white, pink, and navy blue. Vegan leather straps also feature black, brown, dove-grey, and navy blue shades.
The new Native Boheme added an olive green nylon strap and rose gold/silver straps for a more casual look. They also come with 36mm and 40mm case sizes, and water-resistance of 3ATM, making it perfect for everyday outdoor use.
Nordgreen has also launched the Native Lille in 2019, perfect for women who prefer a more low-profile timepiece. The new designs come with smaller 32mm watch casings, sapphire crystal domed glass, and also feature 6.8mm, 7.5mm, or 8.3mm cases in gold, rose gold, and silver, with interchangeable black, white, and navy blue dials.
In addition to Italian leather straps or vegan leather straps, the Native Lille also has the option of stainless steel mesh and rubber straps in 16mm, 18mm, and 20mm in various attractive colors.
Wear your Native Lille watch as standard outdoors whatever the weather. It’s rain resistant up to 3ATM. Make sure to keep the timepiece out of direct contact with water, but you’re ok to run, walk, hike, cycle, or work outdoors wearing your watch.
