The Glow Up: A First Look At The NORQAIN Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight

The newest addition to the sub-collection is everything a night watch should be.

It’s been a great year for upstart watchmakers NORQAIN, but the brand still has one last surprise for fans in 2021.

The Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight DLC is a 40mm watch created for wearers who love the nightlife. The most prominent feature of this bold timepiece is a dial coated in X1 Super-LumiNova that glows green in the dark.

Light Up My Life

During the daylight hours, the black hand-applied and satin-brushed numbers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock appear as if to pop out from the sand-colored background. Plus, the elegant, facetted light grey hands are filled with white X1 Super-LumiNova markers for a seamless design and flawless legibility.
 

But once you turn out the lights, the green glow of the X1 lume presents next-level radiance (and we know that there are enthusiasts out there that live for lume). Grade X1 Super-LumiNova represents the cutting edge of glow with up to a 60-percent increase in visibility after two hours compared to the standard grade.
 

Dark Night

The nighttime aesthetics are also represented in the design of the case. The stainless steel housing showcases a mix of polished and satin finishes. Moreover, in addition to the case, the bi-directional bezel, screwed-down crown, and lugs are treated with a midnight black DLC coating.

Even the NORQAIN plate on the left side of the case – engraved with “NEVEREST” – has this treatment. The angular ruggedness of the architecture of this Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight DLC is further accentuated by a rectangular crown protector that makes it extra robust.
 

This rakish appearance (we’re talking, like, Cary Grant cat burglar chic) is also complemented by the strap choices of either sturdy black rubber or khaki flex fabric with a black vertical stripe.

Dark Matter

Night owls know that anything can happen after hours. But that doesn’t mean you want your watch to let you down while you’re working on your night moves. The Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight 40mm DLC is powered by the high-performance, COSC-certified Manufacture Calibre NN20/1 developed with the Tudor-founded movement manufacturer Kenissi. The NN20/1 is chronometer-certified and features a “weekend-proof” 70-hour power reserve.
 

A Light for Learning

Every purchase of the NORQAIN Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight 40mm DLC or any other previously launched NORQAIN NEVEREST models also supports the Butterfly Help Project.

This life-changing initiative invests in the lives of children in Nepal by Providing Sherpa children access to education. Ten percent of earnings from the sales of all NEVEREST timepieces will be donated directly to the organization.
 

The Adventure NEVEREST Night Sight 40mm DLC is available now and is priced at $3,510 for the rubber strap and $3,490 for the fabric band.
