A Closer Look into Norqain Neverest Series

The series consists of four models with sporty modern watches, the Neverest Glacier, Neverest Night Sight, Neverest Spengler Cup Edition, and Neverest GMT. They delicately appear in such a way that still managed to be aesthetic and appealing. The brand also values an exciting design for the dial as can be seen in the series of watches.

All three watch models measure 40mm in diameter, except the Neverest GMT with 41mm in diameter. Regardless, the watch maintains nice proportional dimensions, allowing for a good grip in almost any wrist size. As a reliable timepiece for extreme adventure, the watch is equipped with reliable features to withstand challenges. 

It can handle up to 200m depths underwater, equipped with a screw-down crown, ceramic bezel inserts, and definitely a chronometer-certified movement to keep everything running well. Further, Norqain has established a partnership with Kenissi to produce a highly-reliable movement.

That said, every watch will be driven by the NN20/1 which offers 70 hours of power reserve and is chronometer-certified. The other one is the NN20/2 equipped with a GMT complication to further enhance the watch’s performance. 

To top it off, Norqain actively participates in charity, especially to keep the brand’s inspiration for a mountain alive. A certain amount gained from the Norqain Neverest series sale will be donated to fund the Butterfly Help Project. This is a charity to help families of Sherpas who died in the Himalayas and make sure that their children can go to school.

Besides a sturdy construction, the watches embody a unique and enchanting design, such as the dial pattern of Neverest Glasier that takes inspiration from the peak of Mt. Everest and its infamous Khumbu Icefall.
