Nordgreen The Pioneer Watches

Minimalism is a design aesthetic that we’ve got a lot of time for here at Coolector HQ and that’s particularly true when it comes to watches. It’s for this reason that we’ve fallen hard for these fantastic looking The Pioneer Watches from Copenhagen based watchmakers, Nordgreen. Stylish, elegant and wonderfully well crafted – The Pioneer is a real triple threat and a prime candidate to be the next watch on your wrist this summer.

The Pioneer series of watches from Nordgreen have prices starting at a thoroughly reasonable £228 which, in our opinion, is a small price to pay for a timepiece of this attractiveness and performance. Inspired by humankind’s fascination with the concept of time – from the obelisk, water clock, hourglass, wheel of time, pendulum clock, pocket watch, to the emergence of men’s watches. Measuring the velocity of our machines. Navigating across seas. Gazing into the heavens with astronomy – time is omnipresent in our history and The Pioneer series is a celebration of this fact.
