After the last few months under quarantine, I have never appreciated the concept of hygge more! Pronounced “hyoo·guh” by the Danish, this word cannot be actually translated to one single word in English. Instead, it encompasses a feeling of coziness, contentment and well-being, which comes from enjoying the simpler things in life. From growing vegetables and flowers, to watching the sunset each evening, I have been reveling in those small pleasures, like the Danish do. Now it’s clear to me why Denmark regularly finishes at the top of every poll as the world’s happiest country!
This desire for classic simplicity has also translated into my choices of clothing, shoes, and most recently, a stunning new watch from Nordgreen. If you are unfamiliar with the company, Nordgreen is Denmark’s hottest new watchmaker, featuring gorgeous timepieces for both men and women.
Nordgreen’s renowned Chief Designer, Jakob Wagner, has a unique design style, which marries beauty and functionality. His incredible career has included collaborations with internationally known brands such as Bang & Olufsen, Alessi, Cappellini, and Moroso. Wagner even has a fixed collection at MoMa in New York. So, to say his designs are more art than jewelry is truly not a stretch!
Of course, a watch (no matter how beautiful) must keep proper time. And, Nordgreen has paired its award-winning watch designs with high quality, precision works, for a timepiece you will count on for many years to come.
In addition, exceptional craftsmanship ensures that these watches can be worn daily. And, the sleek minimalist design works with everything in my closet, from traditional office wear, to more casual weekend clothing.
The only problem I have encountered is trying to choose just one! Truly the combinations are endless.
After much debate, I selected the 36 mm Philosophy watch with a white face, yellow gold case and black leather band, pictured. In addition to a larger, 40 mm face, this style is also available with cases in silver, rose gold or gunmetal.
And, while I opted for a simple black leather strap, this style can be paired with over a dozen strap options from pink leather, to gold mesh, to black nylon, plus so many more. (To get a free strap with every watch or bundle, use code: FREESTRAP.)
In comparison to other high quality Scandinavian watches (and I have a few), I felt that Nordgreen’s prices are quite reasonable. For example, the Philosophy retails for $209, while the Infinity retails for $199, and the Native is just $184. Plus, the watch arrives in a beautiful presentation box, ready for gift giving. Nordgreen also offers free express delivery worldwide and returns, plus a two year warranty. Visit Nordgreen to see the entire line of exquisite watches. I give this watch 6 stars… out of 5!
Nordgreen watches don’t just tell the time: they remind you to treasure it.
