Keeping with the brand’s close association with mountain climbing and adventure, Norqain introduces their latest sub-collection of sports watches that joins the Adventure line up. The Neverest line up calls upon the collection’s connection to Mt. Everest to bring a positive impact on the climbing industry in partnership with the Butterfly Help Project. For the very first time, this new collection houses the chronometer grade Norqain Manufacture Calibres developed in partnership with Kenissi, a distinguished Geneva-based mechanical movement manufacturer founded by Tudor — a true marvel to behold for the young and growing Swiss watch manufacturer.

Driven by Norqain’s association with Mt. Everest, part of the inspiration behind the collection, Norqain partnered with Butterfly Help Project, which was founded by Norbu Sherpa and Andrea Sherpa-Zimmermann of Wild Yak Expeditions, to contribute a portion of funds generated through the sales of the Adventure Neverest collection to help families of Sherpas who have lost their lives in the Himalayan mountains and give their children access to education.
Founded by CEO Ben Küffer in 2018, family-owned and fully-independent Luxury watch manufacturer Norqain is based in Nidau (Bienne) at the heart of the Swiss watch industry. Built on the abundance of experience and deep ties in the Swiss watchmaking industry of founder Ben Küffer and the Küffer family, Norqain explores the brand’s passion for Swiss mechanical watches with a bold sense of authenticity, uniqueness and rebellious character trait for those who are not afraid to carve their own path in life. Despite being on the market for a relatively short span of time, Norqain has brought a huge shake up in the luxury Swiss watch manufacturing industry, rapidly growing with an impressive range of creative dial designs and performance-driven Swiss mechanics.

Crafted out of 316L stainless steel DLC coated to a stealthy all-black appearance, the Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT Blackout comes in a pleasing size truly fit for a modern sports watch. Measuring with a case diameter of 41mm, a lug to lug distance of 48.9mm and a thickness of 14.9mm, these attractive dimensions translate into a versatile look on the wrist that wears exceptionally well in just about every situation. The brand’s signature and distinctive “Norqain” polished plate rests at the left side of the case, a unique feature prominent throughout all of Norqain’s collections. The watch is presented on a 20mm DLC stainless steel bracelet, exquisitely complementing the dark theme of the case.
Accompanying the bi-directional 24-hour rotating bezel in DLC coated stainless steel, the Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT Blackout showcases a stunning black textured dial surrounded by a 24-hour GMT scale in white on the bottom half, indicating night time hours and sunset orange on the upper half, indicating day time hours while adding a fresh pop of color to the dark stealthy look. In low lighting conditions, the dial brilliantly lights up with X1 Super-LumiNova treated on the hand-polished hands and applied faceted indexes. To top it all off, the dial is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, treated with double anti-reflective coating for an ultra-clear view of this magnificent dial.
Underneath the impressive exterior, the Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT Blackout is driven by the chronometer certified Norqain manufacture Caliber NN20/2 automatic GMT movement, a powerhouse of a Swiss-made movement delivering superior mechanical performance with 28 rubies and a hefty 70 hours of power reserve. Running at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz), the movement features Norqain’s custom rotor alongside a personalized bridge engraved with the core values of the brand. As a “True” GMT, the movement allows for a quick-set feature to advance the hour hand forward or backward independently, a convenient feature for frequent travellers. At the back of the watch, a sapphire exhibition caseback reveals this magnificent movement in all its glory.
The Norqain Adventure Neverest GMT Blackout beautifully discovers the brand’s ambitious drive, passion for new challenges and never-resting spirit in a splendid GMT offering with so much to love. The young Swiss brand definitely deserves a closer look for both seasoned watch lovers and those who are seeking for a first luxury timepiece, packing a stylish design and a powerful mechanical engine that will evoke a sense of adventure every time you put in on the wrist.
