Wild one hakuna mipakaLimited edition
Supporting the hakuna mipaka oasis
Wild ONE represents wildlife without harming wildlife because it is completely free from any animal products – an extension of our promise in July 2021 to discontinue our use of leather goods for all of our new product launches and phase-out leather straps for all existing models.
Ten per cent of the earnings from sales of this watch will be donated to the Hakuna Mipaka Oasis.
A PIECE OF HAKUNA MIPAKA ON YOUR WRIST
As teased in 2021, this black NORTEQ creation, limited to 500 pieces, incorporates a piece of Dean’s wildlife: the vegan sand-coloured rubber shock absorber has been mixed with sand from his Hakuna Mipaka oasis in South Africa, which creates a unique speckled design. The black dial is decorated with a lion fur pattern as well as the sanctuary’s spear-and-shield logo. This dynamic pattern is also found on the black vegan-certified rubber strap. A powerful message about humankind’s relationship with animals is engraved on the caseback: “We need to learn to love them exactly the way they are and not the way we wish them to be!”
Special dean schneider packaging
The Wild ONE Hakuna Mipaka Limited Edition comes in a special Hakuna Mipaka watch box along with a signed card from Dean.
THe story of the hakuna mipakalimited edition timepiece
Follow the story of the exclusive Hakuna Mipaka Timepiece on YouTube.
The NORQAIN Independence Wild ONE, made with our 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. This particular model has a special story because it was designed together with wildlife ambassador Dean Schneider.
Limited to 500 pieces, the Wild ONE Hakuna Mipaka has a black dial stamped with a lion fur pattern. It has a black NORTEQ case with a marbled effect. The sand-coloured rubber shock absorber is speckled with grains of red sand from the Hakuna Mipaka oasis in South Africa where Dean Schneider has built a sanctuary for different wildlife species. The rubber bumper covers the titanium container that houses the NN20/1 Manufacture Calibre and is visible between the NORTEQ protective cage. The hour, minute and seconds hands are skeletonised, like for all other watches in the Independence collection. This model is available with a black vegan-certified rubber strap decorated with a powerful lion fur pattern. The caseback is engraved with an important message: “We need to learn to love them exactly the way they are and not the way we wish them to be!”
This high-performance timepiece is the ultimate choice for sports-enthusiast NORQAINERS who feel passionate about protecting wildlife and supporting the important work being done at Hakuna Mipaka. 10% of earnings from the sales of this watch are donated to the animal sanctuary.
