Subsequent to the successful launch of the NEVEREST collection, Swiss watch brand NORQAIN presents the first GMT timepieces in the brand’s renowned Adventure line. Three models are available now and each one is fashioned from stainless steel. They feature the brand’s signature NORQAIN dial pattern. One variation has a striking all-black appearance with DLC finishing.
The new creations are all equipped with the independent brand’s Manufacture Calibre NN20/2, produced in collaboration with movement manufacturer Kenissi.
The NEVEREST GMT models are adventure-ready with the ultra-robust NN20/2 Manufacture Calibre and sporty design. Two 41mm models in polished and satined stainless steel feature a black dial with the recognisable NORQAIN pattern and date window at 3 o’clock.
Both have a steel bidirectional-rotating bezel with a ceramic ring. The time in a second time zone is easily legible with a 24-hour scale around the central GMT hand and X1 Superluminova on all indexes and hands.
The sturdy crown protection enhances the watch’s robustness. The polished NORQAIN plate on the left side of the case, engraved with “NEVEREST”, can be personalised with a name, motto or date. The wearer can choose from two compelling design codes: royal blue or forest green.
Both timepieces are available with a stainless steel bracelet (USD 3,900.00), a fabric strap (USD 3,690.00), or a black rubber NATO strap (USD 3,760.00) produced by BIWI, a Swiss industry leader known for its innovative vegan-certified products.
The third variation of the Adventure NEVEREST GMT features DLC on the polished and satined stainless steel case, bidirectional-rotating bezel, lugs and screwed-down crown.
The splash of sunset orange on the dial indicates the night-time hours of the 24-hour GMT scale and the central GMT hand has an orange tip. X1 Superluminova coats the indexes as well as the hand-applied and facetted hands, for optimal legibility at any time of the day.
This 41mm model is presented on a DLC stainless steel bracelet (USD 4,500.00), flex fabric strap (USD 4,100.00), or striped rubber NATO strap (USD4,190.00).
This is the first NATO strap in NORQAIN’s entire collection and it is made with robust water-resistant, vegan-certified rubber. The wearer can add a unique detail to the watch by engraving the DLC-coated NORQAIN plate with something that reminds them of their greatest achievement.
The robust and high-precision NN20/2 GMT calibre, developed in partnership with mechanical movement manufacturer Kenissi, is COSC-certified and boats an impressive 70-hour power reserve. The sturdy construction features a traversing bridge with two-point fixation to ensure that the timekeeping performance will not be hindered by powerful activity.
The GMT movement boasts a jumping hour feature to easily set the local time and change the date forward or backward at any time of the day without losing a second.
Affirming the exclusivity of the movements are the unique NORQAIN decorations visible through the transparent caseback such as the golden “double-N” NORQAIN logo, symbolising the Swiss Alps, on the oscillating weight and “Adventure – Freedom – Independence”, the brand’s core values and NORQAIN collection names, engraved on the bridge.
NORQAIN also offers four-year international warranty, which can be extended to five years when the customer joins the NORQAINER Club within one month of their purchase.
10% of the earnings of NEVEREST sales will be donated to the Butterfly Help Project, created by Norbu Sherpa and Andrea Sherpa-Zimmermann of Wild Yak Expeditions.
