The 80's are hot! In fashion you see shoulder pads and oversized jackets again, but you can also hear influences from the 80s in music, such as The Weeknd and Dua Lipa. Accessories are joining this trend just as hard – think scrunchies. The very latest Danish Design watch is also an ode to 1988 - the start of the brand 33 years ago. Then the very first model of this watch manufacturer appeared, which was the first brand to introduce Scandinavian-oriented watches. And with the new Nostalgi 1988, Danish Design celebrates its rich past. The 1988 model was updated to 2021 and reflects the zeitgeist of both the 80s and today. The new watch is very similar to the original model, but with a modern edge and the technology of today.
Self-confident and characterful
With the Nostalgi 1988 watch series, Danish Design focuses on the self-confident and characterful woman in 2021. She has a sense of style, but displays it in a modest way. Her camera goes everywhere with her and she shows her photos on Pinterest. Minimalism is her second nature; she enjoys beautiful things, which are original and have a special meaning for her. She chooses accessories with care, less is more. Colorblocking is totally her thing. She combines a designer blazer with trousers from a fast fashion chain.
Characteristic of these watches is the minimalist appearance – without fuss. The Nostalgi 1988 series gets the luxurious look through the self-tinting glass edge and a light sunray dial, which gives a subtle reflection. This makes the gold-coloured hands look even more beautiful. These features can also be found in the original design from 1988.
In 2021 the entire design has been updated and the gold-colored DD logo has been added on the dial and on the crown. That update has also been implemented at the band; there are models with a leather strap – just like in 1988 – but also with a trendy link strap, really 2021!
