With the Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024 approaching, the independent Swiss watch company Norqain is moving forward with its Wild ONE Skeleton series. The brand has also announced a new partner and the Wild ONE Skeleton series’s ambassador - multiple Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka, who has won 16 titles, including three Grand Slams, an Olympic gold and the Davis Cup.

The two new 42mm sports watches - Wild ONE Skeleton Coral and Gecko - are encased in the brand’s proprietary NORTEQ® material, made from carbon fibre that is commonly used in the aerospace industry. It is an ultra-light and robust, high-performance polymer matrix that contains 60% bio-sourced material. The novelties feature a coral red or gecko green rubber shock absorber between the case that can withstand a 5000gs shock and an openworked dial housing chronometer-certified Norqain Calibre N08S by Sellita, boasting a power reserve of about 41 hours.

“I’m super happy to be joining the Norqain family and to play a role in growing the company,” says Stan about the collaboration. “I’d been wearing the NORQAIN Wild ONE Turquoise Skeleton and testing it on court since the US Open in 2023, and just loved it. I’ve always liked wearing a watch when I play and I had high hopes of the watch given its technical specifications. Wearing it has been such a joy, and I’m so pleased that it’s led to this new adventure. And I’m super excited to walk out on court in Paris and then London as an ambassador for the Wild ONE Skeleton Coral and Gecko.”

On the caseback one can see the personalised Norqain oscillating weight. The watches are complemented with animal cruelty-free black rubber straps with a rubber mesh insert in either coral red or gecko green. The novelties are water resistant up to 200 metres.
