If there’s any group of humans that know the balance between style and substance, its the Scandinavian people. If you need proof, just look at the folks at Danish watchmaking brand Nordgreen. Of course, striking that balance also sometimes means making changes — which is why the brand’s Chief Designer, Jakob Wagner, just revamped their Native watch.

Having worked with brands like as Bang & Olufsen, Alessi, Cappellini, and Moroso (to name a select few), Wagner’s keen eye and influence can be discerned in the cleanliness and pleasing lines of this minimalist timepiece. And while it’s available in an array of color combinations and sizes — making it an ideal dress watch for just about any style and venue — there are a few common threads. That includes a reliable Japanese quartz movement, a sleek and thin 316L stainless steel case, and a water-resistance rating of 3ATM. Best of all, if you pick up this  watch, Nordgreen will make a charitable donation to one of three causes — which you can track via the individual serial number on the back of your watch. Best of all, you (the customer) gets a say in which charity you help — Water For Good donates two months of clean water to a person in need in the Central African Republic, Cool Earth preserves 200 square-feet of rainforest in Latin America, and Pratham UK ensures a child in India receives two months of education.  The Native is available now for $200 via the company’s website, use the code HICONSUMPTION to get a 20% discount on your purchase.

Purchase: $200
