Watches are my favourite accessory. I love the how they look, feel and not having to take my phone out of my back to check the time is important to me, especially when I’m trying to limit my screen time. I have a small collection of watches, it’s one I add to whenever something extra-beautiful catches my eye.
Nordgreen design high quality, Scandinavian design watches and their range is a real feast for the eyes. When they invited me to receive a watch to review I knew exactly which style to go for. I chose the Infinity watch with the gold mesh strap – a style that works beautifully for dressed up night’s out and works for day-to-day wear too. It’s even more beautiful in real life!
We hear the term ‘scandi style’ a lot, that sometimes it can be hard to remember what we all originally meant by it. Think of it as minimalist aesthetic, practical and thoughtful in design and use. The perfect blend of good looks and usability.
I bring that into my home décor as much as possible and when Northern European design is making it’s way into my personal style too. I’m loving my new watch, and here’s a few reasons why:
The clasp on the watch is so solid and I’ve got no worries about it falling off while I’m wearing it. (This has happened before to me and something I’m now very conscious of with new purchases.) I also find some high-end watches can be quite bulky and stick out which leaves them more liable to scratches and wear and tear.
My Nordgreen Watch sits nicely on my wrist and is relatively flat which for me means it’s both stylish and practical. It comes with a good warranty but equally feels like it will last for years, which for me is always better than something that looks good but feels like it might break after a year or so. More of an investment piece, for sure!
Vegetarian & vegan strap choices
This is a huge plus for me. In fact, this if often a deal breaker on watch purchases. As an animal lover who chooses to follow a vegan diet, I love the fact that Nordgreen have non-leather alternatives for all of their straps. While I chose to go for a mesh, gold metal finish, I love working with and supporting brands that put extra thought in to provide cruelty free, sustainable options. The gaps within the mesh are minimal, meaning it is comfortable to wear and your arm doesn’t feel stuck and there isn’t any tugging. Also, it’s possible to change the strap easily to get different looks from the same watch, which is another plus. Being able to update the strap means your watch will last for many years to come.
Sustainability in mind
When you’re at the checkout you’re given the option of donating part of your purchase to a cause that means the most to you. Nordgreen supports three NGOs across education, health and environment and you choose which you’d like money to be donated to. From providing clean water to communities to preserving the rainforest, knowing your purchase is giving back is so important.
The only problem I have now is choosing some extra straps for my watch so that I have a whole wardrobe of looks. Which Nordgreen watch would you choose? – check out their Best Black Friday deals.
