Vintage with a fresh touch, Freedom 60 three-hand models, with steel or bronze case (39 mm), domed dial 60s vintage look, automatic manufacture Caliber NN20/1, Chronometer certified, Norlando Italian leather or Perlon rubber straps, or steel bracelet.
Bronze makes its appearance in Norqain’s collection with a new three-hand timepiece. These creations and their stainless-steel counterparts are fitted with the fiercely independent brand’s new manufacture calibres created with Geneva-based mechanical movement manufacturer, Kenissi. The Swiss watch brand has recently introduced new additions to its Freedom collection: GMT and three-hand models.
The vintage vibes of the timepieces are unmistakable, and the bronze cases blend the spirit of 60s watch design with the metal’s renewed popularity today. However, the most impressive features of these chronometers are the 3-hand Manufacture Calibre NN20/1 and GMT Manufacture Calibre NN20/2 inside and their 70-hour, weekend-proof power reserve. “The Freedom collection is the perfect home for this launch because it symbolizes our own freedom as an independent brand as well as the freedom the wearers experience when they set out on their own pursuits”, says Norqain CEO Ben Küffer.
With domed sapphire glass protecting their clean-cut dials, the two variations of the classic 39mm Freedom 60 three-hand model are available with an anthracite dial and steel case or with a cream-coloured dial and bronze case. The stainless-steel model, with its gleaming anthracite dial, features hand-applied indexes and “Old Radium” Superluminova markers.
The bronze variation is distinguished by its yellow shade, which makes it different from the rose-tinged bronze that is more commonly seen. The Norqain Plate on the left side of the case is also bronze and ready to be personalised. Additionally, the pin clasp of the watch’s Norlando leather strap matches the case and the caseback is steel with a PVD bronze treatment.
Protected by a scratch-proof sapphire glass, the exclusive Norqain Manufacture Calibre NN20/1 is clearly visible through the caseback of each model, as are the brand’s core values – “Adventure – Freedom – Independence” – engraved on the bridge and the recognizable Norqain pattern on the oscillating weight. The 39mm diameter and 11.7mm thickness are impressive watchmaking feats for an automatic-winding Manufacture Calibre and address a long-standing request from watch lovers.
