What the experts say

“The answer is really a combination of a few factors, including the brand’s quality control standards, its attention to detail, and a set of first-rate credentials that position it far ahead of similarly tenured brands. NORQAIN is young – that’s a fact, but the company is as serious about building a comprehensive and authentic identity as any watch brand out there is today, regardless of size or age.”

“Based in Nidau, near Biel/Bienne, Norqain is a fully independent watch manufacturer offering functional, versatile watches. Ben Kuffer’s (the brand’s CEO) family has been developing and producing watches for decades. In particular, his father used to own and manage Roventa Henex SA, a large Private Label manufacturer working with several prominent Swiss brands. This expertise is now used to develop the family brand and its range of well-rounded watches. And today we take a look at the nice and well-equipped Norqain Adventure Sport Automatic.”

“Born of minds deeply established in the Swiss watch industry, NORQAIN is a still fresh luxury timepiece maker intent on offering the market both the product and personality its founders feel are wanted by consumers. One of the brand’s first “hero watches” is the NORQAIN Freedom 60 Chrono reference N2200, which is a modern take on a traditional sports chronograph. There is a lot to like here.”

“Behind the young Norqain brand, there is quite a dream team. Marc Küffer is the Chairman of the Board, Ted Schneider, whose family used to own Breitling, is a member of the Board of Directors, and Mark Streit is part of the management team and board. Mark Streit is a Swiss ice hockey legend and Stanley Cup winner, that really underlines the Swiss original value that Norqain stands for. He is passionate about the art of Swiss watchmaking and has an irrepressible drive for adventure, freedom and independence.”

“If you wonder what Norqain means, the characters represent the following: New Open-Minded, Rebelliousness, Quality time, Adventure, Independent, and Niche. These are the codes that this Swiss-based brand lives by. Norqain does a lot of work in-house, such as design, development, and assembly. “
