Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT 41mm Steel-And-Gold Limited Edition

Norqain, the independent Swiss brand that is going from strength to strength, is associated with sporty, robust outdoor watches fitted with chronometer-certified movements and a competitive pricing policy. Last year Norqain launched the Adventure Neverest line, a sub-collection in the Adventure family that marks the brand’s charitable partnership with the Butterfly Help Project to support schooling for children of Sherpas in Nepal. The first Neverest model was a 40mm three-hand automatic with a textured white dial, followed by three 41mm GMT Adventure Neverest watches. Building on the success of the GMTs, Norqain presents a limited edition with an attractive two-tone model with a steel case and bracelet and a red gold bezel. Produced as a limited edition of 100 pieces, 10% of sales generated by these watches will be set aside for the Butterfly Help Project.

Solidity

The solid 41mm case has a thickness of 14.94mm (lug-to-lug 48.9mm) and is made of 316L stainless steel with polished and satin-brushed finishings. The signature plate on the left side of the case is left blank and can be engraved. The crown is screwed and flanked by a solid crown guard to ensure the 100m water-resistance and both the dial and caseback are covered by scratch-proof sapphire glass.

legibility

The two-tone 18k 5N red gold bezel with its black ceramic ring sets this model apart. Knurled to ensure a better grip, the bi-directional rotating bezel has a 24-hour scale picked out in gold and a pip of lume in the triangle at noon (24). Attractive and legible, the two-tone black and gold colour scheme follows onto the dial with its black background decorated with Norqain’s hallmark weave pattern. The generous gold-coloured indices are faceted, polished and applied by hand to the dial. Like the hands, they are coated with X1 Super-LumiNova, which is 60% more luminous than standard Super-LumiNova. The golden triangular tip of the central seconds hand is also filled with lume, as is the larger red triangular-tipped hand for the GMT. A two-tone internal flange with a 24-hour scale signals night-time hours in gold and daytime hours in white, and the date window is positioned at 3 o’clock with a black background to match the dial colour.

Chronometer certified

In 2020 Norqain announced a partnership with movement manufacturer Kenissi (jointly owned by Chanel and Tudor/Rolex), meaning that many of its watches are now ticking to high-performance chronometer-certified movements with powerful 70-hour fuel tanks. The Kenissi COSC-certified calibre NN20/1 has a sturdy construction to ensure the movement is protected during high-impact sports. The movement in this new Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT has a jumping hour mechanism to set the local time and change the date forwards or backwards at any time of the day without losing a second. The sapphire crystal caseback reveals Norqain’s double-N logo on the rotor. Beating a frequency of 28,800vph, the barrel can store up to 70 hours of power reserve.
