Norqain Debuts the Latest in their Neverest Collection

Mt. Everest has long held a grip on our cultural consciousness – and for good reason. Not only is it Earth’s highest mountain, but it takes an almost superhuman amount of determination and grit to scale it. Then, of course, there is the rich history of the Himalayas, making for an even more fascinating landscape – geographically and culturally – for our imaginations to explore. With all of this in mind, it seems that NORQAIN’s latest in their Neverest collection shows appreciation to the history, mystique, and people of the region through their Glacier Black and Ice Blue references.

The 41mm DLC coated Neverest GMT Glacier Black features a black glacier dial inspired by the crevasses on Mt. Everest, with a second time zone and a 24-hour indication on a black and white ring surrounding the dial. The DLC black coating brings the overall appearance of the watch together, while the red-gold plated indices and hands add some contrast.


The 40mm Neverest Glacier Ice Blue boasts an ice blue glacier dial with cracks that mimic the crevasses on Mt. Everest. The dial features diamond-cut, faceted blue indexes filled with white Super-LumiNova and blue diamond-cut faceted hour and minute hands. The steel case is paired with a blue ceramic bezel and is water-resistant up to 200 meters, ensuring reliability under even the most extreme conditions.

Both watches are powered by a NORQAIN Manufacture Caliber by Kenissi. The Glacier Black model runs on Caliber NN20/2, which offers a second time zone with a jumping hour feature (which makes it easy to set to a local time zone) and a 70-hour power reserve. The Glacier Ice Blue model uses Caliber NN20/1, also with a 70-hour power reserve. The Glacier Black has a case diameter of 41mm, while the Glacier Ice Blue features a 40mm case diameter. Both watches have a 316L stainless steel case.

Both additions to the Neverest line-up are available now via NORQAIN’s website. Glacier Black is priced at $5,190 on a steel DLC bracelet and $4,590 on a black rubber strap while Glacier Ice Blue is available at $4,190 on a steel bracelet and $3,690 on a rubber strap. Note that Glacier Ice Blue is a limited edition with only 300 pieces in production.

We’d be remiss to not mention that with each purchase, 10% of the proceeds go to the Butterfly Help Project, an initiative that supports the families of sherpas who have lost their lives in the Himalayas and provides children with access to education. The project has already funded the construction of a hostel housing 50 children, ensuring they don’t have to walk up to 4 hours each way to school.
