Quote Jean-Claude Biver, Advisor to the board

“The Wild ONE collection is the result of close collaboration between the best of the best Swiss suppliers and NORQAIN’s passionate, knowledgeable team. This collection is a 3-in-1 because it combines unique design, a revolutionary new concept and high-tech material. NORTEQ is the optimal material on every level: aesthetics, light weight, robustness and ethical production”.

Jean-Claude Biver,
Advisor to the BOARD
Quote Ben Küffer, NORQAIN Founder & CEO

“There is no better way to describe the Wild ONE than the ultimate sports watch for every NORQAINER. It’s the culmination of over two years of close collaboration between Jean-Claude Biver, our team and the best Swiss suppliers. The Wild ONE is 100% Swiss-made. From the entire development process to the production of every component of the watch – it all came to life within a small radius from Jura to Bienne and Neuchâtel. Our motto throughout the project was ‘zero compromise’ and we delivered on this by always opting for the highest-quality solution. I am incredibly proud of the final result”.

Ben Küffer, NORQAIN Founder & CEO
Quote Pascal Bourquard Jr., CEO of BIWI SA

“Thanks to the impulse from NORQAIN, we developed a revolutionary sports watch concept with a unique material resulting in an innovative collection with one of the best quality-for-price ratios for a 100% Swiss-made watch in the industry. The true strength of the NORTEQ material is in its potential for variation. I am proud to have had the opportunity to collaborate with NORQAIN and Jean-Claude Biver and believe that this unparalleled material has an enormous positive impact on the brand’s reputation”.

Pascal Bourquard Jr., CEO of BIWI SA

The fourth model in the NORQAIN Wild ONE collection has been designed together with our international ambassador, Dean Schneider. 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!”

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.

The Wild ONE Hakuna Mipaka Limited Edition comes in a special Hakuna Mipaka watch box along with a signed card from Dean. Ten per cent of the earnings from sales of this watch will be donated to the Hakuna Mipaka Oasis.

Quote Dean Schneider

“Creating this timepiece alongside NORQAIN showed me how much passion and effort goes into the development of their watches. It’s not only the wild, robust and modern style of the Wild ONE Hakuna Mipaka Limited Edition that makes it unique, but also the Hakuna Mipaka lion energy that flows through it”.

About The wild one

About The wild one

NORTEQ CASE

What immediately stands out about the 100% Swiss-made timepieces in the Wild ONE collection, aside from their incredible lightness, is their innovative construction. The case has separate top and bottom NORTEQ parts, developed by strategic partner BIWI, which serve as a protective cage and are connected and secured with custom-made screws. Between these parts is a rubber shock absorber that surrounds a titanium container in which ticks the NN20/1 Manufacture Calibre. The BIWI rubber bumper reliably absorbs shocks during even the most extreme activities. Water resistance to a depth of 200 metres expands the range of sports that the Wild ONE is suited for. In total, the case is made of 25 parts, including four screws which are engraved with a mountain-peak design. Each watch weighs just 84 grams, which is 50% lighter than a stainless steel NORQAIN watch.

INTRICATE LASER CUT DIAL

The three-level laser-cut dial features an intricate mandala-like pattern of our mountain-inspired double-N logo. Each level is separated by 0.05mm giving the pattern an eye-catching 3D effect.
The hour, minute and seconds hands of the Wild ONE timepieces are skeletonised, a distinguishing and much-loved design feature of all the watches in the Independence collection.

PROVEN ROBUSTNESS

The watches’ robustness and shock-resistance are proven by withstanding 5000 g. It can handle extreme shocks and bumps like when the wearer rides a mountain bike, skis an exhilarating downhill slope or runs an ambitious trail.

COLOURS

The Wild ONE family currently features four models, two of which are limited editions. The first limited edition model has a burgundy NORTEQ case, grey rubber shock absorber, grey dial with red gold indexes and hands, and a grey vegan-certified rubber strap. It is limited to 200 pieces. The other limited edition model has been designed together with Dean Schneider and you can read more about it below.

The two models that are here to stay stand out with dynamic, earthy colour schemes. The variation with a black NORTEQ case has a blue rubber shock absorber, a blue laser-cut dial and a blue vegan-certified rubber strap. Its counterpart has a black NORTEQ case, khaki rubber shock absorber, black dial and khaki animal-friendly rubber strap.
