Following the launch of it’s NEVEREST collection, NORQAIN has expanded the offering with three GMT models – the first GMT timepieces in the brand’s renowned Adventure line.
Each one is fashioned from stainless steel and features the brand’s signature NORQAIN dial pattern world and 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 brand says the new COSC-certified GMT timepieces with weekend-proof 70-hour power reserve and jumping hour feature do more than keep time in two time zones but also make a positive social impact.
By purchasing a NORQAIN Adventure NEVEREST timepiece – a GMT model or a three-hand model launched in August 2021 – customers can help NORQAIN contribute to the Butterfly Help Project and change the lives of children in Nepal.
The NEVEREST GMT models come with the 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 wearer can choose from two compelling design codes: royal blue or forest green. Both timepieces are available with a stainless steel bracelet (CHF 3,730.00), a fabric strap (CHF 3,530.00), or a black rubber NATO strap (CHF 3,590.00) 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 (CHF 4,240.00), flex fabric strap (CHF 3,870.00), or striped rubber NATO strap (CHF 3,950.00). 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.
NORQAIN also confirmed that 10% of the earnings of NEVEREST sales will be donated to the Butterfly Help Project.
