The Red Dot Design Award, an international design competition, has become a recognised stamp of unparalleled design quality. Founded nearly 70 years ago, the prestigious and internationally recognised award celebrates cutting-edge design and innovation. The competition is fierce, as entrants come from all over the world to fight for the title. The Nordgreen Pioneer by Jakob Wagner was one of 6,500 entries for this year’s award, and was noticeably inexpensive in comparison to winners in previous years. Among million dollar start-ups and well-established international brands, Nordgreen’s unbelievably affordable Pioneer completely stole the show.
1. The Nordgreen Pioneer Chronograph watch: Winner of the 2020 Red Dot Award for Design
In 2019, Nordgreen released the Pioneer Chronograph watch, and since then, it has been the top-selling watch of its Nordic designer collection. Out of 6,500 entries, Nordgreen won the 2020 Red Dot Award in the category of Design. If it’s proof you need on its popularity, the Pioneer continues to impress customers and peers alike!
2. Watches Designed by the World-Renowned Jakob Wagner
When it comes to being sought after for his design philosophy to create for famous designer brands such as Bang & Olufsen, B&B Italia, Cappellini, and Hay, Jakob Wagner is no stranger to the challenge and has been doing so for over 25 years and counting. Becoming a world-renowned designer has its perks, as the talented Dane celebrates his fourth Red Dot Award for his Pioneer Chronograph watch design.
3. There’s a Price Range for Everyone’s Budget
Nordgreen watches are a great choice if you enjoy designer watches that pair nicely with both your formal and casual attire. Choose between the Native, Philosopher, Infinity, or the 2020 Red Dot Award-winning Pioneer Chronograph watches, and select your case, dial, and straps to your liking. Nordgreen makes quality and precision watches for under 200 – 300 dollars, but if you want to spend big, there’s that option, too!
4. Supports community with its Giving Back Program
When you purchase a Nordgreen watch, your purchase allows you to give back at no extra cost to one of three NGOs. Pratham UK educates children in India, Water For Good provides clean water solutions to the Central African region, and Cool Earth combats deforestation by planting trees in the Latin American rainforests. Nordgreen also lends a hand to urgent challenges such as the 2019 Australian bushfires by donating funds towards reforestation. Nordgreen takes pride in its Giving Back Program and has found a great way to encourage its customers to join in giving back to their communities.
5. Sustainable Packaging
Cutting down on waste is an ongoing mission at Nordgreen. That’s why, when you receive a watch from Nordgreen, it comes neatly packed in an FSC certified cardboard box and a felt liner made from up-cycled plastic bottles. The Copenhagen watch brand believes that they have an inherent responsibility to their community and environment, sources their paper products from FSC certified forests that are heavily regulated, and using up-cycled plastics are the least they could do.
