NORQAIN: SWISS-MADE WATCHES WITH UNIQUE DESIGN
NORQAIN: SWISS-MADE WATCHES WITH UNIQUE DESIGN
Founded in 2018 in the heart of Switzerland, Norqain is an independent brand that embodies excellence and environmental sustainability. Their watches, made with 100% animal-cruelty free materials, are tailored for outdoor enthusiasts who seek innovative timepieces with distinctive designs.
With deep roots in the Swiss watchmaking industry, Norqain embraces three core values: “Independence, Freedom, Adventure.” These values not only reflect the brand’s spirit but also serve as the names of its three precious collections. The Küffer family, renowned in the watchmaking sector, drives the brand’s established expertise as its owners. This familial heritage blends seamlessly with the collaboration of a watchmaking legend, Jean-Claude Biver, who provides counsel to NORQAIN’s board of directors.
Norqain’s mission is bold and ambitious: to spread the passion for mechanical watches in an era dominated by digitalization and smartwatches. Their goal is to bring Swiss-Made watches to the wrists of the younger generation, sharing the same vision as Jean-Claude Biver. In an increasingly technological world, Norqain aims to revive the allure of traditional craftsmanship and Swiss mastery, providing an authentic and fulfilling experience for watch enthusiasts of all ages.
The Independence collection by Norqain is an ode to the courage needed to embark on great adventures. Our passion is the beating heart of each exclusive and innovative timepiece within the Independence series. These watches are designed for the daring explorer, the one who boldly embraces the ethos of “my life, my way,” confidently pursuing their goals with passion.
To make this summer even more special, NORQAIN has launched the Wild ONE Skeleton, a watch that combines two of its best-selling models with an exciting chromatic variation. The turquoise-colored Wild ONE Skeleton, paired with a black and turquoise rubber strap, features a revolutionary 25-part case structure designed to withstand the impacts and demands of high-performance sports while boasting an intriguing design.
Crafted with the patented NORTEQ material, developed in collaboration with Jean-Claude Biver and BIWI SA, these watches are known to be ultra-durable and lightweight. In fact, thanks to the skeletonized movement, each watch weighs only 78 grams. The titanium case houses the skeletonized NN08S movement, surrounded by a shock-absorbing rubber protection. The dial showcases skeletonized indices and hands, giving the watch a distinctive appearance.
The Adventure line embodies the thrill of exploring and conquering nature, from trails to peaks and to the sea. The ruggedness of these powerful watches makes them suitable to face any challenge that nature may present. The distinctive NORQAIN dial pattern, rotating bezels, and extraordinarily robust construction make NORQAIN Adventure watches perfect for a life filled with adventurous moments. This collection exudes a strong character that speaks to versatile sports enthusiasts always seeking new challenges.
Within the extensive range of models in this collection, one of the flagship jewels is the remarkable Neverest series, whose mission goes beyond creating exceptional timepieces. Each watch sold in the Neverest capsule actively contributes to supporting children in Nepal through the Butterfly Help project. This initiative represents a meaningful and compassionate gesture, showcasing Norqain’s deep commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those in need. An exemplar of excellence in this collection is the NEVEREST GMT 41MM.
This timepiece features a black dial with the distinctive NORQAIN motif, surrounded by a GMT scale. The design includes a forest green semicircle indicating nighttime hours and a white semicircle indicating daytime hours. The watch is powered by the in-house NORQAIN NN20/2 movement from Kenissi, COSC-certified, and offers a second time zone with a “jumping” hour function, allowing easy setting of the local time and quick date adjustments forward and backward.
The Freedom collection is a tribute to the love for nature. The design of Freedom watches, inspired by vintage charm, features a domed sapphire crystal, exclusive NORQAIN stitched straps, and stunning dials reminiscent of the aesthetics of the ’60s. Every detail has been meticulously crafted, creating watches that are true masterpieces of craftsmanship and style.
A standout model in this collection is the FREEDOM 60 CHRONO 40MM ICE BLUE LIMITED EDITION. This limited-edition chronograph, with only 300 pieces available, is a variant of NORQAIN’s best-selling watch and showcases a unique two-level dial with a radiant ice-blue top finish, contrasting black sub-dials, and a black outer border with a white tachymetric scale. Inside, this watch houses NORQAIN’s NN19 caliber with a Personalised NORQAIN oscillating weight.
