For this version, the Norqain Freedom 60 GMT 40mm Bronze is as soon as once more provided on quite a lot of completely different straps, starting from a colour-matched blue Perlon strap (a vegan possibility, when you’re on this) to a Nortide Ivory strap or an Alcantara ebony strap – all being closed by a bronze pin buckle.

The primary novelty on this version is the brand new dial, which sees the sunray-brushed floor colored in a fairly placing midnight blue – a pleasant match with the bronze case. The faceted utilized markers and arms are nonetheless made from bronze and stuffed with Outdated Radium Tremendous-LumiNova.
