Norqain - Independence 21 DLC Skeleton Limited Edition

Norqain is launching today the Independence 21 DLC Skeleton Limited Edition, the first skeletonised model of the Nidau-based brand.

The lack of a traditional dial makes it possible to admire the skeletonised movement with its wheels and gears. Nonetheless, the readability of the indication remains excellent thanks to large C1 Super-LumiNova-filled hands and hour markers. The red arrow tip of the central seconds hand adds a nice a sporty touch to the ensemble.

The Norqain logo is on the scratch-proof sapphire glass and the “Chronometer” designation is on the ring to avoid obstructing the view of the movement. The scratch-proof box type sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective on both sides.

Norqain did not accept any compromise in terms of shock resistance and overall robustness so the architecture of the skeletonised movement is based on the principles of beam construction: each support point is held by at least two arms (differently from traditional skeletonised movements that often feature only one arm per support point). 

Norqain Independence 21 DLC Skeleton Limited Edition

This way, the Norqain calibre NN08S skeletonised calibre (base Sellita SW200-1 S) maintain its rigidity and robustness and guarantees exceptional shock resistance, a characteristic of all Norqain timepieces. Beating at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), this self-winding movement has an autonomy of 38 hours.

The metallic ruthenium colour used for the movement components creates a nice match with the sandblasted and black DLC-coated stainless steel case. The polished Norqain plate on the left side of the case is a must for all pieces of the brand.

Measuring 42 mm x 11.8 mm, the Independence 21 DLC Skeleton guarantees water resistance up to 10 bar (approximately 100 metres / 330 feet).

The watch can be matched to a DLC-coated bracelet with brushed, polished and sandblasted surfaces or to an integrated Black Barenia leather strap.

Norqain Independence 21 DLC Skeleton Limited Edition

A limited edition of just 100 pieces, the new Norqain Independence 21 DLC Skeleton Limited Edition retails at CHF 3,650 with strap or CHF 3,990 with metal bracelet. norqain.com
