My Favorite Minimalist Watches

From time to time I like to share cool things that I come across. And this week it’s watches.

A watch is an important tool to have. After all, if you want to redeem the time, you need to be able to keep the time. And if you’re going to keep time, why not do it in style?

I’ve never been much of a fancy watch guy. And it’s always kind of bugged me that it was so hard to find a simple, classic looking watch at a reasonable price. There are lots of sleek modern options out there, but why can’t a watch just look like a watch? Ya know?

I’ve mostly just worn my Apple Watch for the past year or so. But even if you have a nice band for it, a nerdy computer watch looks pretty dumb when you get dressed up. So when I recently discovered Nordgreen watches I felt like they were made for me. The minimalistic yet classic design is exactly the aesthetic I was looking for.

Check these out.

What Is A Chronograph Watch?

They have a lot of options to choose from for both men and women. For example, there’s a really nice looking chronograph model (pictured above). That one really tempted me. I love the stopwatch feature.

In the end, I sprung for The Philosopher with a gold dial and brown wrist band. I really just dig the simplicity.

The Price

These watches sell for around $200, depending on the model. But the quality is readily apparent when you hold them in your hand or examine the stitching on the wrist bands.

So, if you’re looking for a watch for yourself or as a gift for someone else, Nordgreen has a great selection that’s worth checking out. Also, right now they are running a promotion where you can get a second band for free when you purchase a watch. So, it’s a good time to buy.

Full disclosure: I did receive a review watch for free from Nordgreen. But I don’t have any kind of monetary relationship with them. In other words, I don’t get anything if you buy from them. These are just my genuine thoughts about a product I thought you might like
