NORQAIN’s new Adventure Sport Chrono NHLPA Limited Edition is limited to 500 pieces and features unique design details that hint at the speed and thrill of professional ice hockey.
At the beginning of 2020, NORQAIN announced it had entered into a strategic partnership with the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA). In honor of this sporty alliance, NORQAIN has launched a limited-edition Adventure Sport Chrono that incorporates details linking the timepiece unmistakably to the thrilling sport of ice hockey.
NORQAIN Board member Mark Streit, 2017 Stanley Cup winner and Swiss hockey legend, and Roman Josi, three-time NHL All-Star player, Norris Trophy winner and captain of the NHL’s Nashville Predators, have been actively involved in the independent watch brand’s development from day one. Their commitment has been a key factor in NORQAIN’s entry into ice hockey and in the establishment of this important alliance with the NHLPA.
The excitement of the sport on your wrist
The robust Adventure Sport Chrono NHLPA Limited Edition has all the dynamic features that distinguish the watches in this sporty collection, including the knurled bezel and high-precision chronograph features. The blue aluminum bezel ring matches the color of the 3 and 6 o’clock chronograph subdials. The 6 o’clock subdial features the NHLPA logo in white.
The 9 o’clock running seconds subdial takes its design inspiration from the face-off area on the ice. Strengthening this powerful model’s connection to the sport is the white dial whose texture resembles the scratched surface of the ice rink after a particularly gripping period. To achieve this unique appearance, the dial undergoes more than 30 different production steps, many of which are manual and require an extremely high level of craftsmanship. The NHLPA Logo is metalized on the sapphire caseback and visible behind the logo is the NORQAIN Caliber NN18, an automatic-winding mechanical movement produced by ETA that boasts chronograph timekeeping accuracy to ¼ of a second and a 48-hour power reserve.
Presented on a blue rubber strap that’s ready for action, this exclusive timepiece is limited to just 500 pieces and is priced at $3,290. It has a diameter of 41 mm and a lug-to-lug length of 49 mm. NORQAIN and hockey fans who purchase this timepiece will also receive an exclusive NHLPA X NORQAIN puck that is not available anywhere else.
NORQAIN is defined by its adventurous spirit and dynamic engagements with elite athletes, so it is fitting that it solidifies its involvements with ice hockey – a sport that requires dynamism, precision, drive, and a sense of adventure.
