Independence 20 Limited Edition


Norqain Collections

Discover here the three collections

Adventure Collection

The Adventure Sport Collection is a line with a sporty and strong character. The distinctive «NORQAIN pattern» on all the dials, the knurled bezel and the accentuated self-confidence of this watch make it unmistakable.

In search of personal limits, NORQAINERS love adventures.

We let ourselves stay open to venturing down new paths, but always remain true to who we are as individuals. Therefore, we never focus on a perfect world but rather on the intensity and truthfulness that life moments hold.

Freedom Collection

Those who wear a Freedom 60 watch on their wrist can feel the vibes of the 60s. Our inspiration from the new positive attitude towards travel, exploring, and the experience of individual freedom, all combined with our love for attention to detail, have led us to this design classic. 

The characteristics of this collection are the incredibly beautiful design elements – starting with the vintage straps with the unique «NORQAIN stitches», followed by the box type glass with its origin in the 60s and the reduced dial with hand-applied indexes. 

Freedom is a life moment of inner conviction. For us NORQAINERS, freedom means to deliberately take the time for the essential things. Freedom is the ideal stepping stone for an independent lifestyle and paves the way for new adventures.

Independence Collection

The exclusive Independence collection is for independent, nonconformist, successful people who aren’t afraid of their flaws and live in the moment. The chronometer certified model for both ladies and gents is available as a limited special edition released only once a year.
NORQAIN stands for people who go their own way in life, regardless of where the rest of the world is going: authentic, unique, rebellious and not perfect. This is why at NORQAIN we say: Our journey is an adventure, our destination freedom and independence.

we are NORQAINERS – our life, our way

Unmistakable - the «Norqain Plate»

This plate can be engraved with your own personal message. With this timepiece you will have a companion for all your journeys, experiences and wildest adventures. Your NORQAIN will celebrate your life accomplishments with you – your life, your way.


Swiss Made has a long family tradition at NORQAIN. For more than four decades, the founding family has been producing Swiss Made watches in the Bernese Jura, the centre of the art of watchmaking. It is the pride and joy of the family to unite this experience in NORQAIN. This makes it possible for NORQAIN to offer the highest Swiss watchmaking quality.
