Norqain is an independent and 100% family-owned Swiss watchmaking company based in Nidau, near Biel. It is there, in the heart of the Swiss watch industry, that the brand designs and develops exclusively mechanical timepieces of high quality that are customisable and available in a thoughtful price position.
Norqain was born out of the shared passion between seasoned entrepreneurs, wishing to combine their experiences to create a unique, original and Swiss Made brand. Three collections embody the brand’s values: Freedom, Adventure and Independence—three names that unambiguously evoke the ability for Norqain watches to follow each collector in his or her daily life.
Norqain is managed by the Küffer family. The father, Marc Küffer, is Chairman of the Board of Directors, to whom he brings 45 years of watchmaking experience. His son Ben is the founder and CEO of Norqain. Ted Schneider, of the family that owned Breitling for almost 40 years, and Mark Streit, Swiss ice hockey legend, are also members of the management and the board of directors.
On the movement side, Norqain has developed an exclusive collaboration with the Kenissi manufactory (Tudor, Chanel, Breitling, etc.) from which two exclusive Norqain calibres were born and which today equip its collections - a strategic orientation that embodies its desire for independence as much as its care for Swiss Made watchmaking quality.
