Norqain Brings A GMT Hand To The Neverest Collection

Share this story:

Norqain is adding a new collection of watches to their recently introduced Neverest family in the form of three GMT models. The trio makes use of the brand’s Kinessi built Calibre NN20/2 you’d find pulling duty in the Tudor Black Bay GMT, and provides a plenty of bang for the buck in Norqain guise. The design language falls in line with what we saw in the first Neverest watches released earlier this year with a bit more color thrown in for good measure. Oh, and proceeds will, in part, continue to support the Butterfly Help Project, so if you’re on the fence about this one, that might be enough to nudge you over the line. 

The Neverest GMT is being offered in three models, each receiving a unique colorway and strap combinations. While the ceramic bezel insert gets 24 hour labeling, it’s the internal rehaut that gets the bicolor treatment, with a white bottom pairing with either a blue, green or orange top half. The color is punchy but doesn’t overwhelm thanks to this execution, as opposed to a bicolor bezel insert.

The blue and green dials are fitted to stainless steel cases, while the orange finds itself in a satin finished DLC steel case. Regardless of color, the case measures 41mm in diameter and 48.9mm from lug to lug. Much like the Tudor Black Bay GMT, case thickness will be the issue here at nearly 15mm. Granted, this isn’t exactly pitching itself as a restrained sport watch for everyday wear (as far as I can tell, at least), so live and let live, I suppose. 

On the upside, the movement is quite robust, and having worked out some initial teething issues, should provide solid performance over its lifetime. This is a chronometer certified movement, and does allow for the hour hand to be independently set for max practicality. The full balance bridge and Incabloc shock protection further add to the robust image of the watch, and should allow for more than adequate protection from any elements, environment, and activity you subject it to. 

The dial gets Norqain’s unique texture that lands somewhere between a basket weave and carbon fiber in appearance. This pairs with either a steel bracelet or a color matched striped NATO done in fabric or rubber. 

The steel examples are priced from $3,690 on fabric on up to $3,900 on the bracelet, while the DLC variant ranges from $4,100 to $4,500. The Neverest GMT is available for purchase directly from Norqain, and 10% of the proceeds go to the benefit of the Nepal based Butterfly Help Project, which aims to provide for the children of sherpas that have perished in the Himalayan mountains.
