The Nordgreen mission is to create classic Scandinavian designs for watches that truly meet the bar set by other famous Scandinavian designers (but without the price-tag).
Jakob Wagner, the well known watch designer who has worked with Bang & Olufsen, Hay, Muuto, and many more is also behind the Nordgreen watches.
The Philosopher is the watch that I was able to review for myself. This Nordgreen watch is designed to be an instrument of time, and it celebrates the ability to think differently. The shape of the case is conical, with a base wider than its face, creating a sharp characteristic two-piece dial that brings us hurtling through time to this moment now. The watch case has an elevated, and clean brushed look because of the way that the lugs tug under it. The asymmetric second hand that appears to continuously slice through time reminds us to learn from the past, act now, and create a better future.
One of the other unique things with the Nordgreen watches is that all of our straps come with a “quick-release” function, allowing you to change the look of your watch within a matter of seconds. And best of all, no tools are needed. This means then that you can have different straps that will completely change the look and feel of the watch itself.
Another great things is that a Nordgreen owner can enter their watch’s serial number and identification number on their Giving Back Program page, learn about the three causes that they contribute to, and then choose the cause that they believe in the most. A watch can contribute to saving 200 ft² of rainforest in Latin America, provide one month of clean water to a person in the Central African Republic, or provide two months of education to a child in India. This is because they’ve partnered with these three NGOs to give back; Cool Earth, Water for Good, and Pratham UK
