FEMININE WATCH

We’ve received lots of messages from female fans who follow our project and would love a model designed specifically for them, based on our Anomaly collection. Should we launch a feminine model?

CUSTOMIZED OSCILLATING WEIGHT

We’ve been thinking about a customized oscillating weight, with a transparent caseback that would allow the movement to be admired from the outside… but that would raise the retail price by around 50 CHF / 45 EUR – Is it a good idea?

DEPLOYMENT CLASP OR PIN BUCKLE?

We currently have 6 different clasps (deployment clasp and pin buckle, each in 3 different colors) and this is making our logistics significantly more complicated and may prolong the waiting time. Our potential aim is to move to only offering one type of clasp, still in 3 colors. Remember that a strap fitted with a deployment clasp would cost around 30 CHF / 25 EUR more than the pin buckle equivalent. Which clasp do you think we should keep?

The launch of project X41; coming March 14th.

As you surely know by now, we are fascinated by ultra-mechanical watches. Watches fitted with manufacture movements and priceless frames, without a dial, with the time displayed directly on the movement, all giving the impression of wearing a little machine on your wrist; in brief, pure mechanical magic ! Can you feel your pulse racing? Are your palms getting a bit sweaty ? Can you feel the excitement rising ? If so, don’t worry, you’re just addicted like us !

    Il progetto code41 ha avuto successo in quanto frutto di una visione progettuale e industriale innovativa, molto razionale e rigorosa. Per evolvere il progetto, occorre innovare e ampliare la gamma ma procedendo con gradualita’ e equilibrio, facendo attenzione a rimanere ancorati alla filosofia originaria del progetto.
    Sognare e’ importante, ma stando con i piedi in terra.

    Hallo und Gratulation,
    ich verfolge das Projekt erst seit kurzem und bin begeistert.
    Ich finde aber keine näheren Beschreibungen (in deutscher Sprache). Zum Beispiel, wie nehme ich notwendige Änderungen in der Datumsanzeige vor. Die Kronenfunktion zu beschreiben, ist meiner Meinung nach, nicht ausreichend!
    Ich trage die Uhr nun täglich und wurde mehrfach angesprochen diesbezüglich. Nur positive Feedbacks auf meine Erläuterungen.

    Hallo zusammen,
    leider kann ich fast nirgends eine HAU mit lesbarer Kalenderwochenanzeige finden. Wäre das eine Herausforderung für Euch?

      Zurzeit haben wir so etwas noch nicht geplant, aber wir werden es uns notieren so dass wir es in zukünftigen Projekten in Betracht ziehen können.

    Les montres sont plutot pas mal. Ce qui me plait moins c’est la taille et l’esthetique de votre logo code 41 qui ne se s’integre pas au style de la montre. La police et le nom de la marque manque de tranchant. Si vous vouliez faire une montre qui sort des codes, mettez ‘code 41’ en petit et moins visible. Le monograme 41 par contre en jolie. Garder juste 41 en facade ca serait plus classe.
