Wild One Hakuna Mipaka Watch, 42mm


This product is unavailable

The Norqain Independence Wild ONE, made with our proprietary NORTEQ carbon fibre material, is the ultimate sports watch. Six times lighter than steel and 3.5 times lighter than titanium with water resistance to a depth of 200 metres, it is robust enough for virtually any activity on land or water. This particular model has a special story because it was designed together with wildlife ambassador Dean Schneider. Limited to 500 pieces, the Wild ONE Hakuna Mipaka has a black dial stamped with a lion fur pattern. It has a black NORTEQ case with a marbled effect. The sand-coloured rubber shock absorber is speckled with grains of red sand from the Hakuna Mipaka oasis in South Africa where Dean Schneider has built a sanctuary for different wildlife species. The rubber bumper covers the titanium container that houses the NN20/1 Manufacture Calibre and is visible between the NORTEQ protective cage. The hour, minute and seconds hands are skeletonised, like for all other watches in the Independence collection. This model is available with a black vegan-certified rubber strap decorated with a powerful lion fur pattern. The caseback is engraved with an important message: “We need to learn to love them exactly the way they are and not the way we wish them to be!” This high-performance timepiece is the ultimate choice for sports-enthusiast Noraqiners who feel passionate about protecting wildlife and supporting the important work being done at Hakuna Mipaka. 10% of earnings from the sales of this watch are donated to the animal sanctuary.
