Iconic Danish watch design for a better world, by Nordgreen
Redefining minimalist design, making it accessible & creating a better world through sustainability. By renowned designer J.Wagner.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, June 21 2019 5:00 AM UTC +00:00.
The Nordgreen take on the Chronograph is a celebration of the Danish tradition of Science for Humanity, a concept established to create positive change for humankind and nature, thus celebrating the sustainable future that we dream of.
We as Danes are proud to be one the Pioneer's in sustainability, and through the Chronograph we are inviting others on a journey for a better future.
The clean space around the dial is a reflection of the environment that we want to live in, while the third hand stopwatch (Chrono second hand), which has a red tip inspired by windmills, is a reminder of the bond between Nordgreen and the sustainability of its motherland.
The watch comes in three dial colors - blue, black, and white - and three case colors - gun metal, silver and rose gold.
Jakob has re-imagined the Native which is inspired by Copenhagen and the unpretentiousness of the Danish way of life.
The re-modeled Native comes with invisible minute marks, because in Copenhagen, we don’t count the minutes, we enjoy quality time. We also bring you the Native Lille, a smaller 32 mm version for the female audience, in addition to the existing 36mm and 40mm watch faces. The new models will be available with white, blue and black dials, as well as a new gold and gunmetal case option, adding to the current silver and rose gold case colors.
With every watch you are able to swap your straps out with a different one, allowing you to define how your express yourself and your outfits. Simply detach the straps on your watch, and you are ready to change to any style you are in the mood for.
Jakob Wagner is an award-winning designer with over 25 years of experience, working with the likes of Bang & Olufsen, Hay and Muuto. Nordgreen’s sustainable approach was one of the core reasons he chose to work with us: “What has become really important to me is to work solely on something… on conscious projects; ones that mean sustainability is a given. To make something that has intrinsic value and that we want to keep for a long time.”
We are determined to contribute to sustainable change in the world. When you choose a watch, 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.
Since launch, The Nordgreen team has grown from just a handful of people to employ over 20 internationals. Our office of more than 30 employees, is carbon-neutral, with 90% of employees opting to cycle to work. Our co-founders, Vasilij Brandt and Pascar Sivam are university friends and watch enthusiasts who envisaged one day owning a business together, a dream made true by the Kickstarter community.
We expect to deliver by mid-October. Once our goal is achieved, we’ll work tirelessly with our manufacturers to get you your package as soon as possible.
We are Vasilij and Pascar, the founders of Nordgreen, and we are back again hoping to bring you something even bigger and better than last year.
Since we launched on Kickstarter last year we have gone on to sell over 10,000 watches in over 70 countries.
We owe a big thanks to you and the Kickstarter community, we really couldn’t have done it without you!
In collaboration with our chief designer Jakob Wagner we bring you two new models, on our mission to make Scandinavian design accessible to all, while promoting global sustainability. We hope that you will love the new range as much as we do.
We would be so grateful if you chose to support us again this time around, and join us on our journey.
Pascar and Vasilij
