Xicorr FSO M20 Norka is a limited edition of our bestseller, prepared for the 10th anniversary of its production.
M20 is our biggest sales hit (so far). Produced continuously since 2012. Almost unchanged. We have already sold nearly 3,000 copies of this model of the watch. Three colour versions are available. Two limited versions based on this model were also created - both sold out very quickly.
Norka - the story of this M20 has enthralled us some time ago. The car, produced in 1956, was exported to Norway as one of 841 vehicles. There, it faithfully served its one owner for 50 years. The original condition of this car has been preserved over these 50 years. Norwegian roads which had not seen salt clearly worked out well for it. After the death of the owner, the car went to the car-wrecking yard where it stayed for about 7 years. Jacek, an automotive enthusiast from Minsk Mazowiecki, found the photos from the car-wrecking yard by chance. At first, he thought that the pictures showed the Soviet Pobeda, but the FSO logo on the hubcap clearly indicated it was Warszawa. Several years of efforts resulted in the car being brought to Poland.
There is no other Warszawa M20 that is so original. After the necessary repairs, Norka passed vehicle inspection and was approved for use. Its premiere took place during the annual "Bikiniada", i.e. a rally of Warszawa cars. Even though there were many shiny vehicles from all years of production, there was only one real star. Everyone admired the originality of the car, its wonderful patina and the fact that, despite being 60 years old, it was never repaired (in body and paint shop). You can read more about Norka's history on the website of the Museum of Motorization and Technology – Skarb Narodu:
The car caught our attention a couple of years ago when we came across an article about it in Classic Auto magazine. Some time ago, we met the owner of Norka, Jacek, and his friend, Mateusz. It was on the occasion of the premiere of the film "Pomimo" prepared by them, telling the story of an expedition from Warsaw to Beijing, under the aegis of Express Wieczorny newspaper, made by two Polish travellers with Warszawa car.
This meeting resulted in the idea for Norka - the M20 limited edition. The upcoming 10th anniversary of the production of the M20 was the perfect occasion. In Norka, a new version of the dial has been used, which is two-level. The colour corresponds to the colour of Norka, or at least one of its fragments, because after years its colour is a full range of shades from green to blue. The nature of Norka is reflected in the case covered with a PVD coating in the shade of old brass. The "rust" on the dial is applied manually by us, which makes each copy unique. We also used the idea of glass indexes, which appeared for the first time in the fan club limited edition. Also noteworthy are the logos from the era of FSO and Warszawa, which we developed together with Jacek based on Norka hubcaps and plaques. It is completed with a hand-stitched leather strap and an additional brown silicone strap. The kit is packed in a well-known M20 first-aid kit in a specially prepared colour.
Norka is only 100 unique pieces, of course, each of them is numbered.
Jacek and Mateusz are planning a very interesting expedition with their Norka, we hope that our Norka watches will also take part in it.
