Our ability to think differently and adapt to our surroundings, learning from the past in order to create a better future, is what makes humanity so special. The unique design of the silver Philosopher, and its features, such as the asymmetric second hand, have been designed to celebrate this. The contrast between the conical shaped cases base and its face creates a sharp two piece dial to draw the eye to the centre of the timepiece, to the now! While the tugging lugs, brushed finish, and raised case provide the finishing touches to its unique style. With its 36mm black Italian leather inter-changeable strap, the Philosopher is the perfect timepiece for you to carry with you through the years. Other key features include: – Japanese quartz movement – White dial – Scratch resistant mineral case
A Blend Of Scandinavian Minimalism, Leading Craftsmanship, And Sustainable Values
Our mission is simple, to create a line of watches which reflect the design and ethical values that Scandinavia has become so famous for, but without hurting the wallet. As Copenhageners, we have a core set of values which we believe make us some of the happiest people in the world. We’re passionate about design, the people around us, and we are guided by the belief that the collective is more powerful than the individual. So we partnered with the renowned Jakob Wagner! Jakob has worked with some of the leading global household brands such as Bang and Olufsen. He’s known for understanding user behaviour, simplistic design, superb craftsmanship, and functionality. He was the perfect man to fit the bill. An important element of Copenhagen’s values is responsibility. Nordgreen felt that it was essential to incorporate these values into our brand. For each watch bought, we empower our customers to give back to the global community by donating a proportion of every sale to one of three sustainable causes. More on this can be found in the ‘Product Benefits’ section.
Walking the streets of Copenhagen has the power to stir the creativity of even the most stubborn mind with its beauty. With its architecture in mind we were inspired to create a line of watches which would compare.
The Philosopher has a conical shaped case makes the base wider than the face. Partnered with the two-piece dial, the eye is drawn to the centre of the timepiece, bringing the attention to the now!
All of our watches are hand-made to ensure that each watch is made with the same attention to detail and care as the last. This way we can be confident that your watch lives up to the high-quality standards that we uphold ourselves to.
Our Giving Back Program
As part of our efforts to promote global sustainability we empower each person to give back to the global community whenever they buy a watch. For every watch bought, you will have the choice to give back to one of three causes (all proceeds will come from the sale of the watch): – Water for Good: one watch sold will mean that you supply 2 months of clean water to a person in central Africa. – Cool Earth: one watch sold will mean that you help preserve 200sqft of rainforest in Latin America. – Pratham UK: one watch sold will mean that you supply 1 month of free education to a child in India.
Each of our models comes with inter-changeable straps so that you can customise your look to any occasion. We have a selection of 9 straps in Italian leather, stainless steel mesh, and nylon to match with our silver, rose gold and gun metal models. Strap colours include: – Italian leather: Black; brown; navy blue; white; grey; and pink. – Stainless steel mesh: rose gold; and silver. – Nylon: black; and navy blue. The Infinity strap sizes include 16mm and 20mm, suitable for the 32mm and 40mm case widths respectively.
Global Team & Brand
Describe your products in 3 words.
– Scandinavian design – Versatile (Inter-changeable straps) – Progressive (CSR approach)
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Our founders, Vasilij Brandt and Pascar Sivam, began their journey with Nordgreen at the beginning of 2017, and have loved every minute of it so far. Their dream to create a watch brand takes us back to their teenage years when they met at high-school and would regularly compare the latest additions to their watch collections. While the range was inspired by the people and beautiful architecture of Scandinavia, Nordgreen was born on our founders’ passion for watches.
What makes your product special?
Our watches are special because of the combination of a quality Scandinavian product, designed by the renowned Jakob Wagner, and our sustainable approach.
What has been the best part of your experience?
With so many challenges and adventures throughout our journey so far, it’s hard to pick just one experience that stands out among it all. However, when it comes down to it, our customers are at the centre of everything we do. With this in mind, the best part of our experience so far has to be the very first orders, and the respective feedback from our Kickstarter campaign, where after months of hard work we were able to finally get our watches into the hands of our very first customers’ hands. That felt pretty damn good!! There is one thing for sure, we can’t wait for what is to come.
