Nordgreen started with a dream of a minimalistic watch brand that would bring luxury Scandinavian watches to the world. But the company’s two founders didn’t expect their dream to be funded in just two hours.
One of the top 10 Kickstarter projects ever in Europe in the fashion industry, Nordgreen was 200% funded in 24 hours and over 650% funded in the first seven days.
The funding kept pouring in. Nordgreen was featured on the world’s top publications, raising over $250,000 and attracting the ex-CEO of Pandora and Carlsberg to the company’s advisory board. Forbes has also listed the company’s two founders in their 30 under 30 issue for 2019.
Where are Nordgreen Watches Made?
Based in Copenhagen, Nordgreen is not your typical watch brand.
Nordgreen watch prices allow for elegance and luxury at an affordable price. You can wear your watch to a gala, fancy dinner party or out to a sporting event. Nordgreen watches are elegant, strong, beautiful and can be worn for any occasion.
Jakob Wagner’s Vision of Integrity and Simplicity Come to Life
The watch industry is highly competitive, but it’s the attention to detail and luxury that has helped Nordgreen stand out from the competition. Jakob Wagner designs each watch, focusing on:
Wagner, a famous Danish designer, keeps to the company’s Danish roots and is just one part of the success that is Nordgreen. Wagner, who has collaborated with numerous brands in the past (including Alessi, Bang & Olufsen, Hay, Moroso and Cappellini), designs each watch with function and integrity of design in mind.
He follows a core principle: design is just right when it is the simple expression of an idea, achieving integrity when nothing else can be added or removed.
Men’s and Women’s Class Timepieces
Nordgreen has watches designed to suit your outfit. Every timepiece has interchangeable straps, allowing your timepiece to match every look perfectly. If your mood or personality changes, so does your strap. The customizable design allows for full control of personal expression.
Nordgreen focuses on the connection made between each watch and wearer like no other brand in the world is able to replicate.
Materials are all sourced with sustainability and quality in mind. Customer service goes back to a time when companies actually cared about their products – not just their bottom lines.
When you purchase a watch from Nordgreen, you’ll be happy to know that:
· Nordgreen donates to 1 of 3 NGO’s
· Customers choose the NGO which their purchase helps fund
Classically simple yet elegant, each watch’s serial number allows Nordgreen to track donations made with each watch purchase. The unfeasible has been made feasible, allowing for affordable, luxury watches that give back.

Sustainable and socially responsible, Nordgreen’s values are reflected in the Giving Back Programme. The three NGO’s which customers can choose among, empower the customer to provide one of the following:
1. Preservation for 200 sq. ft. of Latin America’s rain forest
2. Supply 2 months of education to India’s children
3. Supply 2 months of water to Central African children
Every watch is made with pride and purpose. Nordgreen has formed partnerships with sustainable manufacturers, and all packaging is recyclable.
Nordgreen’s an ethical company that sticks closely to their Danish roots and principles, but how are the company’s luxury watches?
