Nordgreen Minimalist Watches Review + 15% Off
As you guys know, I absolutely love watches, so when I heard about Nordgreen Watches, I was super excited to share them with you! I always take my collaborations seriously and this is a Copenhagen-based Scandinavian minimalist watch brand that offers a sustainable watch collection, so I couldn’t be happier to tell you about them! These thin watches are designed by award-winning Danish designer, Jacob Wagner (who you probably know as the world famous Bang & Olufsen designer), honouring form and function in equal measure. Each of their watches has a different story to tell, while remaining modern classics and extremely versatile!
The Nordgreen watch that I have here is the beautiful The Unika Rose Gold 28mm thin watch, with a stunning mesh strap. This one has the incredible white dial, with their simple and minimalist logo, combined with rose gold hands. The extra strap that I chose to go with it is a gorgeous brown leather, with a rose gold buckle, to complement the face. What I fell in love with on this watch the most was the unique and cool way that the strap connects to the dial. It’s a fun design that you don’t usually see on watches, and I fell in love with it for that purpose. It’s tough to add fun and quirky elements to something, while keeping its integrity and remaining a classic, but Jakob managed to do just that! It’s super lightweight as they’re known for their thin watches, and it’s very comfortable to wear. Mesh straps always offer you the ability to adjust the closure, so you can have it exactly how you want it on your wrist, without having to get links taken out, and it’s also water resistant! I can safely say that you’re going to be seeing this Nordgreen watch a lot on my wrist in outfit photos to come! I’m kind of obsessed with its classic simplicity, its elegance, and its versatility!
The brand offers both ladies watches and mens watches, so for my male readers out there, you can also pick up these sustainable watches! I did mention that I had a discount code for you all, and it’s 15% off with the code: RAIN at the checkout. Please be sure to use my link at the bottom of the text to get your discount! I find this brand to be much more affordable than others on the market, with similar designs, with a much highest quality and more expensive look overall, so they’re absolutely worth checking out, especially since they were designed by Jakob Wagner. He’s known for making sexy and sleek electronics, which has now transitioned over into sustainable watches. I can’t give them high enough praise!
Now as I’ve mentioned sustainability, as we become more aware of the environment, sustainable watches are the way forward, especially since Nordgreen offer vegan watches too! That’s something that I know will appeal to a lot of you. They have a giving back donation programme through global NGOs: CoolEarth, Pratham UK, & WaterForGood, so that means with every purchase, they provide 1 month of clean water to a family in Africa / 2 months of free education to children in India / funding for preserving 200 sq ft of rain forest in Latin America. They care greatly about the environment as well as people, so their packaging is made of upcycled plastic bottles & FSC-certified cartons. Returned watches are refurbished to the same standard watches to reduce waste. They use a carbon-neutral shipping partner, and are planting thousands of trees to offset carbon emission generated by the office in Copenhagen. Isn’t all of that incredible? Not only do you get a beautiful watch, but you don’t have to worry about the impact your purchase might have on the environment. You’re doing a good thing by purchasing.
As you can see here in my photos, my Nordgreen The Unika Watch has paired perfectly with my Allsaints Aleida Blush Pink Shorts Suit, which I recently got, and my Gucci Brixton loafers, as it has such a classy and elegant design. I can see it working just as well with a dress, as much as it would with a pair of denim shorts and a simple tee by swapping the rose gold mesh strap to the brown leather strap. That’s the beauty of minimalist watches, they literally go with everything! There’s so many different dials, straps, colours, and sizes to choose from though, so you can literally put together any combination that you want to! Having that much choice is incredible! Please do let me know what you think of this beautiful timepiece in the comments below, and don’t forget to use my link to purchase with 15% off using the code RAIN at the checkout! Lorna xx.
