Over the years the Scandinavian decor has become a global phenomenon. The origins of Scandinavian design come from the demand for functionality, where the harsh winter climates of Northern Europe drove those who lived in this area to value utility over decoration.
Beloved for its simplicity, minimalism and functionality, this design flourished in the 1950s throughout the Nordic countries. Today the Scandinavian style aesthetic has deeply influenced fashion all over the world. The clean lines and neutral palette are also hallmarks of this style on many functional jewelry pieces as well as watches.
We feel quite lucky for being given the chance to collaborate with Nordgreen brand and receive their Pioneer watch for review. This Danish watch brand was launched in 2017, and their range of minimalist watches for men and women of all ages are the result of a collaboration between the brand and highly acclaimed designer Jakob Wagner.
Each Nordgreen watch has a range of strap options available for each time you want to you change the look of your watch without having to buy a new watch.
The 42mm Pioneer watch (€248,95) is a true stunner of Nordgreen’s aesthetic. It features domed Sapphire crystal glass, Japanese Quartz movement and comes in a multitude of case and dial colors. We had chosen the black dial with silver mesh strap for a touch of simplicity and elegance.

Nordgreen has emphasized sustainability with recyclable packaging, as the watch comes in an elegant Nordgreen branded box. The box contains their Certificate of Authenticity with identification number and a few welcome words written from the founders of Nordgreen, Vasilij and Pascar. The watch’s unique serial number is engraved on the back of the watch case. Both number are useful if one wishes to join their Giving Back Programme through which every Nordgreen watch will contribute to an important cause.
The first thing that comes to mind when putting on the watch is how light it feels. The strap does not leave marks on the skin even after wearing the watch for a whole day. The lightweight feel on the hand is quite striking considering 42mm case width and 11.9mm case thickness. Clearly it’s not a small case, but yet it feels light on the hand.
Pictured here is the sophisticated silver case with black dial and mesh strap, but other numerous strap options and colors are also available, making this timepiece customizable according to one’s desires.
