Independent Swiss watchmaker Norqain launches the Independence 22 Skeleton, a limited edition steel version of its black DLC model that quickly sold out last year.
The newest version features a 42mm stainless steel case with brushed, polished and sandblasted finishing. But the real draw is how Norqain frames its ruthenium-colored, COSC-certified, Sellita-based caliber NN08S with exposed gears, wheels and bridges.
Each supporting bridge within the architecturally designed movement is held by at least two arms. This creates a particularly rigid movement, according to Norqain, which offers a “exceptional shock resistance and a high level of robustness.”
Under the Norqain-logo-printed sapphire crystal you’ll see two skeletonized hands and a red-tipped seconds hand. All are coated in top-quality white SuperLuminova.
Norqain says it will make 300 Independence 22 Skeleton watches, and will make additional pieces upon request.
