There are so many great watchmakers from all over the world but it is hard not to have noticed the emergence of Scandinavia as one of the hotbeds of horology of late and one of the best watchmakers to have emerged from there recently is undoubtedly that of Danish brand, Nordgreen. They’re back at it again with their latest release which is currently taking Kickstarter by storm and it’s easy to see why when you see the expert craftsmanship, first class materials and dedication to sustainability that has gone into its creation.
The Nordgreen Pioneer Watch on Kickstarter has already secured close to £160k in funding and this really is testament to the belief that consumers have in this Danish watchmaker and this latest release from renowned designer, J. Wagner, who has worked with acclaimed brands like B&O, Montana and Alessi, aims to redefine minimalist design, making it accessible and creating a better world through sustainability whilst it does it. Scandinavian design principles are at the heart of these superb looking timepieces on Kickstarter and functionality and minimalism really come to the fore with the excellent aesthetic.
What really sets these Nordgreen watches apart from the crowd is the fact they are striving to make a difference in the world around them and when you back these timepieces on Kickstarter, you’ll be helping one of three sustainable causes in the world of education, health and the environment. Extremely affordable and devilishly dapper, it’s not hard to fathom why these exemplary Danish timepieces have proven so immensely popular on Kickstarter and you can get you hands on one of these Pioneer watches for just £125 during the campaign.
With the Nordgreen Pioneer Watch on Kickstarter, you can choose from three different dial colours (blue, black and white) and three case colours (gun metal, silver and rose gold) so you’re sure to find the perfect combination to suit your own style persuasions. The Pioneer boasts a Japanese Quartz 6S21 Miyota movement, 316L stainless steel casing, stopwatch functionality and sapphire crystal glass casing which all join together to make a highly desirable timepiece which we’re big fans of here at Coolector HQ.
Minimalist design is something that is synonymous with Scandinavia of course but J. Wagner, the designer behind these wonderfully understated watches, has really captured this ethos with aplomb in this great looking line up of timepieces which are funding over on Kickstarter right now. Each watch has a quick release strap which means you can change the look and feel of your timepiece at the drop of a hat which adds to their style versatility considerably.
Nordgreen are determined to contribute to sustainable change in the world so when you choose a watch from their Kickstarter, you will also choose one of three sustainable causes. Use the serial number from the back of the watch and the unique identification code from the Certificate of Authenticity to choose a cause and track the results on our website. The causes available are Pratham UK, delivering education to children in India, CoolEarth which preserves rainforest in Latin America and Water For Good which provides clean water in the African Republic.
If you’re after a new watch this summer that both looks good and does good, these first rate offerings from Nordgreen would be one of our top picks here at Coolector HQ. The style is second to none and the fact that you can get one on your wrist for under £150 is the real icing on the cake.
