“Discover a Unique Watch collection that reflects the ability to adapt to your busy lifestyle and to be as versatile as you need your accessories to be”

Lately, this Summer I was lucky enough to preview the new watch collections by Nordgreen Copenhagen which I am delighted to keep discovering new brands on the market for fine watches and accessories. You will really appreciate the simplicity of modern minimalist Danish design and its origins of Scandinavian lifestyle.

The brand kindly offered to reach out to me to review one of their watches as I’ve been a great fan of Nordgreen Copenhagen for a while now and always on the lookout for the perfect watch to compliment my daily attire. I decided to choose the Native dark navy nylon and rose gold mesh stainless steel straps to style my weekend off-duty look and really pleased with it that I made the right choice. It even comes with a beautifully branded tote bag that’s made of eco friendly materials you get complimentary with every order.

“With a NORDIC MINDSET on design, contemplation comes first. I look for MEANING before I design anything. Then I turn to NATURE for INSPIRATION, searching for the most harmonious expression. I carefully design every component individually to be part of the whole and to respect the materials and function. That’s how I try to reveal the essence of the watch. I prefer to leave a SUBTLE SIGNATURE on the products I design and invite the person to live with it, as an open-ended story.”

Nordgreen’s Chief Designer Jakob Wagner, 2020

With this in mind, did you know that you can choose your case colour and dial along with a strap style to suit your preference of the ideal watch.

Here’s an interesting fact for you. I discovered Denmark is a global leader in green technology advancements, pioneering change and inspiring nations across the world to follow pursuit in favor of reducing environmental carbon footprint. For Nordgreen it’s not only about their amazing watches but sustainable initiatives to saving the planet. You can find out more about the Brands Giving Back Program where you can send them your old used watch which they service and repair it to sell on and find a new owner. You can count on sustainable luxury whereby Nordgreen partners with Danish manufactures abroad to ensure overseas production adhere to the highest levels and Danish labour practices for corporate social responsibility.

Find the Perfect Gift

I was actually looking for a new watch for myself or a gift for that special someone or occasion and personally recommend the Nordgreen Native model because it’s considered one of the best sellers in the range.

Give a Stylish Accent to your Attire

Nordgreen Native Watches come in 3 different sizes to that it fits all types of wrist. Here you can see I’m wearing the 35mm with Dark Navy Nylon Strap.  To view all sizes in stock please check out the Nordgreen websites homepage. Trying on the Native Men’s Watches it really redefines classic timepieces where the contemporary sleek design and subtle details deliver timeless watches that will never go out of style.

For me the Nordgreen Native is the perfect balance between striking elegance and fine detailing with Japanese time movement. These watches are ideal for a style statement that stands out from the rest and fits into your everyday lifestyle.

Nordgreen Watches are as versatile as it gets to make a first impression from day to night. Make the Native Watch your own when you can select between three dial colours black or blue and plain white, including silver, gunmetal and rose gold casing. With Nordgreen you can make a statement where ever you go or even if you just fancy staying in at home.

Don’t forget to explore the bundle gift sets just because on some occasions, one extra strap is all you need to create a versatile look with your attire day in day out.

Make Nordgreen Native watches a great addition to compliment your summer capsule wardrobe outfits. Not only is the Native watch by Nordgreen unisex but well balanced-just see for yourself here.

Sustainable fashion has been at the focus of the apparel and clothing industry recently and it’s heartening to see the brand Naeco producing their sunglasses using repurposed plastic bottles from our oceans.

The Deep Connection with the Ocean is Naeco’s DNA, and Founder Zak chose to be a business that reduces waste, recycles and makes a difference.

It’s quite astonishing how their approach to pioneer eco textiles makes for a stylish design and investing in products like these will help secure cleaner oceans for future generations to come.

Just 5 percent of plastics are recycled effectively while 40 percent end up in the landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.

Much of the remainder is burned. Did you know, at least 8m tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans – which is the equivalent of dumping the contents of one rubbish truck into the ocean every minute.

Treat Yourself and the Planet Better

Naeco is the proud winner of the DHL Fashion Potential Award 2019. Their new website and Trident Sunglasses collection has just landed and I can’t wait to tell you what they have been working on. So far there are jackets, blazers and other garments all made from recycled plastic in signature super soft fabrics.

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or Matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last.

I just couldn’t wait to do a try on at home for the new collection of Unisex sunglasses designed to suit the face of both men and women including the exceptional high workmanship to the high end German hinges ensure they stay on your head in all situations – even the roughest of weather conditions too.

The Ocean is in Our Hands

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last. When I was asked to model a new sunglasses range for Naeco of course I said yes absolutely 100 percent. Why? Not only because they are a luxury product, and who doesn’t adore something well made and long lasting.

They have a few different styles but the wayfarers were my favourite just because they are light weight and very comfortable. It’s maybe it’s something to do with the German engineered frame is spot on and very versatile to wear whether sailing the highs or poolside lounging.

Most importantly this is a British Brand that is working hard to make a difference and help clean up the planet. Also, during the pandemic we must do our utmost best to support small business and new start up to get the economy going in Britain.
