The Independence family is inspired by the courage it takes to do the unexpected. NORQAIN's passion ticks inside every one of its exclusive and innovative Independence timepieces' the new skeletonised model is no exception. These watches are designed for the explorer who feels most at home in the "my life, my way" ethos while confidently pursuing their passion.

A sign of NORQAIN's watchmaking craftsmanship, this DLC model's skeletonised structure is based on the architecture principles of beam construction: each support point is held by at least two arms. The indexes as well as the red gold plated hour, minute and seconds hands are filled with X1 Superluminova, which is 60% stronger than standard Superluminova. Wearers and admirers can enjoy a stunning view of the robust and shock-resistant movement through the sapphire glass on both sides of the DLC-coated case. An integrated steel bracelet with on-the-fly micro-adjustment or an integrated animal cruelty-free rubber strap complete this striking watch.

    Why buy from us?

    We aren't your usual AD, purchase history NOT required.

    We are here to democratise watches. We approach watches with an open mind. Your budget, your AD relationships, the current state of  your collection, it doesn’t make a difference to us – we see value at every end of the spectrum, and we can help build your collection, build your knowledge while keeping it all as fun as absolutely possible.

    Don't take our word for it, check out our recent Google reviews:

    "For as long as I'm alive, I will ALWAYS check Time&Tide before buying another watch. I'm going to have difficulty explaining how over-the-top and personable their customer service is through a mere Google review. You're going to have to feel it for yourself, and I have no doubt that you will..." Read the full review.

    "Really enjoyed the visit to Time+Tide Watches Melbourne, clearly run by enthusiasts, appreciated the honest opinions, refreshing to chat to guys with appreciation for watches in general who aren’t trying to push a certain brand or meet quotas, different to the traditional visit to an AD, but certainly in a good way." Read the review.

    "I'm a new customer and have had a great experience. I live outside of Australia and Time+Tide are the only retailers for DOXA in my region, Sean and his team have been nothing but accommodating in helping me purchase my watch and also facilitate a non standard pick up method. Really appreciate the help and time fellas, cheers. Highly recommended and will definitely be back for another DOXA in the future." Read the review.

    "Great group people, that are very knowledgeable. The location itself is a little hidden and may be easily missed. The staff themselves were very friendly and honest about their opinion. It is definitely more relaxed and friendly then other watch AD. I can recommend stopping in there and having a discussion about watches if you’re passionate about them. Overall, very great experience and happy with my purchase." Read the review.

    "Definitely had a great experience choosing a watch to buy. They were extremely knowledgeable and gave me plenty of options and suggestions that fit my needs. Definitely were not pushy and it looks like everyone there just has a passion for watches. Shout out Kieran!" Read the review.
