Following up their success with the Independence 21 DLC Skeleton, Norqain has announced their next addition to the Independence Collection with a steel model dubbed the Independence 22 Skeleton. The Independence Collection is Norqain’s expression of out-of-the-box thinking. The distinct case form and dial display is a step away from their handsome but robust tool watches we’re used to seeing. The Independence 22 Skeleton stays true to the Independence Collection ethos, combining the intricate look of a skeletonized dial with the Norqain essence of adventure and durability.
The gears, bridges and rubies seen through the box style sapphire crystal make for an engaging dial on the Independence 22 Skeleton. The metallic ruthenium coloring adorned on the movement components give the dial a platinum-esque shine and provides that extra vibrance that pops against the steel case and bracelet. The movement on display is Norqain’s caliber NN082 which is a precisely modified Sellita SW200-1. The NN082 boasts a COSC certification promising an accuracy of -4 to +6 seconds per day and is secured within the case using an architectural build method called “beam construction”. This technique retains the rugged nature of a Norqain sports watch by providing extra support at each point of structural contact stabilizing and adding more shock resistance to the exposed movement.
