Family-owned and independent, NORQAIN is a watch brand that dares to go its own way. Based in Nidau (Biel/Bienne), at the heart of Swiss watchmaking, we’re driven by the excitement that comes with exploring the road less travelled. Our three collections – Adventure, Freedom and Independence – are exclusively equipped with mechanical movements and original striking design elements. Every NORQAIN watch is Swiss made with absolute attention to detail and ready for whatever adventures await.

Wild ONE - The Ultimate High-Performance Sports Watch

NORQAIN Independence Wild ONE

The NORQAIN Independence Wild ONE, made with NORQAINs proprietary NORTEQ carbon fibre material, is the ultimate sports watch. Six times lighter than steel and 3.5 times lighter than titanium with water resistance to a depth of 200 metres, it is robust enough for virtually any activity on land or water.

Always in search of new limits, NORQAINERS love adventures. We stay open to venturing down new paths, but always remain true to who we are as individuals. We never focus on a perfect world, but rather on the intensity and authenticity of life’s most memorable moments.

The adventure collection is a line with a sporty and strong character. The distinctive “NORQAIN pattern” on all the dials, the knurled bezel and the robust design of these watches make them unmistakable. This is the watch you want strapped to your wrist as you live an adventurous life.

For us NORQAINERS, freedom means to deliberately take the time for only what is most essential. Freedom is the ideal steppingstone for an independent lifestyle, and it paves the way to new adventures.

The distinguishing features 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.

Those who wear a classic Freedom automatic watch on their wrist can feel the vibes of the 60s. Our inspiration comes from the excitement of travel and exploration, and the experience of individual freedom – all combined with our superior attention to detail.

As NORQAINERS, we choose unconventional paths. We do everything with great conviction and passion. Our interpretation of independence defines the way we experience life moments.

The exclusive Independence collection is for independent, nonconformist and successful people who embrace what makes them unique and live in the moment. The chronometer-certified models for both ladies and gents are available as a limited editions released only once a year.

Our journey is an adventure. Our destination: freedom and independence.

The distinctive “NORQAIN plate”

The distinctive “NORQAIN plate” can always be found on the left side of the case of all models. 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, Family Tradition & Independence

For us, “Swiss made” is more than a designation on our watch dials. NORQAIN itself is Swiss made, and it was built on a solid foundation of family tradition. For more than four decades, our family has been creating and developing watches in Tavannes in the Bernese Jura. Now, with NORQAIN, we have united our experience and expertise – an exciting adventure for all of us. This know-how allows us to offer top-quality watches that meet the highest Swiss watchmaking standards. The fact that NORQAIN is independent means that our unique values will continue to distinguish our brand, and our customers will always be our inspiration.

At the beginning of 2020, NORQAIN announced it had entered into a strategic partnership with the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA). In honour of this alliance, we launched a limitededition Adventure Sport Chrono in October 2020 that incorporates details that dynamically link the timepiece to the thrilling sport of ice hockey. As part of this partnership, NORQAIN had a presence in the NHLPA All-Star Lounge, interacting with all 44 all-stars. And over the course of the partnership, several NHLPA players will participate in exclusive NORQAIN initiatives, and NORQAIN will also have a presence at joint events during the hockey season and in the off-season. The commitment of NORQAIN Board member Mark Streit, 2017 Stanley Cup winner and Swiss hockey legend, and Roman Josi, three-time NHL All-Star player, «Norris Trophy» winner and captain of the Nashville Predators has been a key factor in NORQAIN’s entry into ice hockey and in the establishment of this important alliance with the NHLPA.
