Danish Design Nostalgi 1988 for the woman of 2021

In recent years, many major watch brands have liked to look back on their illustrious past with reissues of iconic models. Strangely enough, we don’t often see watches from the eighties, because the eighties are HOT. Danish Design is the exception, because 1988 is precisely the year that Danish Design was founded. This is celebrated with a reinterpretation of the very first Danish Design watch.

With the new Nostalgi 1988, Danish Design celebrates its rich past. At the time, the brand was the first to bring Scandinavian design watches to the market. The 1988 model has been updated for 2021, making it the perfect combination of the style of the ’80s with a modern edge and technology.

The Nostalgi 1988 fits perfectly into today’s fashion image. Self-confident and minimalist, but Insta-worthy. A modern watch for the woman of 2021 with a trendy 8ies vibe.

Then and now

Characteristic of these watches was and is the minimalist appearance. The self-tinting glass edge and a light sunray dial, which has a subtle reflection, give the watch a luxurious look. The gold-colored hands look even more beautiful.

Curious what the original watches from 1988 looked like? Below you see three examples.

In 2021, the entire design was updated and a gold-colored DD logo was added to the dial and 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.
