An emblematic collection
in the spotlight!

In 2016, CODE41 made a sensational entrance into the hushed world of watchmaking by offering total transparency on origin and costs, shining a light on the Swiss Made label and by giving power to its community. This approach was seen by some as an anomaly in the Swiss watchmaking landscape. That's what gave us the idea to call our original collection ANOMALY.

After 4 years of existence and almost 15,000 pieces sold, it was time to give this emblematic collection, which signalled a long-lasting change in the world of watchmaking, a new lease of life.

Thanks to you, the creative ones, the curious and the bold who've enabled this Creator Edition to reach the top: 973 pieces sold in 30 days for a total of CHF 986'667. You are incredible, you are CODE41!

ANOMALY EVOLUTION,
the best of the original models

For this new version, we've combined the best of the two original models: the technical, distinctive, and recognizable design of the ANOMALY-01, the Swiss movement and date of the ANOMALY-02.

Co-created with the owners of the original models

The ANOMALY EVOLUTION has been created in close collaboration with the owners of versions 01 and 02. Some have been wearing their watch for over 3 years, so who better to decide what should be improved? We asked them for their opinion and they even took part in our work sessions. What joy! When we tell you that you're with us at the heart of the project, those aren't just empty words.

Meeting our members

As soon as the second ANOMALY EVOLUTION prototypes arrived at HQ, we hurried to show them to owners of the original collection. Beyond just their enthusiasm for the project, they instantly fell for the latest addition to the family. Taking the DNA and the best of the original models, with even better value for money: mission accomplished!

One size is good,
two sizes is better!

The technical and mechanical nature of the ANOMALY collection has delighted men since the very beginning, but recently we've also been receiving a lot of praise from women. Unfortunately, the 42mm diameter has been a major obstacle for them. Well, good news! So that this new edition can be suitable for any wrist size (men's or women's), it's available in 38 and 41.5mm versions.

41.5mm

A versatile
collection

The ANOMALY EVOLUTION is made from high-quality 316L steel. In addition to the natural steel color, it's available in black, charcoal gray, and a very original blue-gray. These colors are applied to the steel base via a vacuum treatment called PVD or IP. It's a fine layer that's twice as tough as steel. The thicker it is, the better the resistance. That's why we've selected the maximum thickness of 1.2 micrometers.

So that everyone can find their joy, each model is offered with a wide range of interchangeable straps fitted with deployment clasps designed to match the color of the case.

Swiss mechanical
movement

We've selected the Swiss mechanical movement Sellita SW200-1 for its great reliability. What's more, we've opted for the Elaborated version, which differs from the Standard version as follows:

Standard

Adjusted : In 2 positions
Precision : -12/+12 sec. per day
Shock absorber : Novodiac

Elaborated
(selected version)

Adjusted : In 3 positions
Precision : -7/+7 sec. per day
Shock absorber : Incabloc


How does a mechanical movement recharge itself?

So-called 'automatic' mechanical movements are fitted with an oscillating weight that recharges the watch through movements of the wrist (no battery required). By oscillating from left to right, the weight rewinds the mainspring, which stores the energy required for the mechanism to work.

Numbered Edition

In order to produce exceptional mechanical watches, we call on the best. These are local manufactures with unique expertise who perform the finishing touches by hand. That's why ANOMALY EVOLUTION watches are only produced in small, numbered series.

Numbered
Creator Edition

CODE41 is more than a brand, it's a movement, human-powered watchmaking. The aim is to devise the creation of a watch as an extraordinary adventure in which everyone can play their part.

Here are your benefits for supporting the ANOMALY EVOLUTION project:

  • You become a Creator member of the project;
  • You receive a numbered piece engraved with 'CREATOR EDITION';
  • You enjoy a launch price that's much lower than the future price;
  • You enjoy other advantages in future projects.


Total transparency

With our TTO label (Total Transparency on Origin), we put transparency at the heart of our approach. We clearly explain the production costs and the mark-ups required to make a project profitable, so that we can concentrate on what we're really passionate about: creating high-quality mechanical watches with our members.

The birth of an ANOMALY EVOLUTION as if you were there

We are committed to offering our community high-quality mechanical watches. That's why we only select partners who are the best in their field to accomplish our projects. Discover here how an ANOMALY EVOLUTION comes to life as it's assembled by hand!

Unbeatable magic and value for money

Direct distribution, minimal mark-ups and transparency on costs; these are some of the criteria that enable us to offer our watches at a price that the competition just can't match.

30-day free-return policy

If you're not entirely satisfied with your watch, you have 30 days from receipt of delivery to return it for free, unused and in its original packaging.

Frequently asked questions

What are the conditions of cancellation and return?

As long as your order has not yet been dispatched, you can cancel or modify your choice of strap free of charge, while stocks last. From the date of delivery, you have 30 days to send if back free, unused and in its original packaging, to enjoy a full refund.

Do I need to pay import duties when I receive my watch?

No. We've implemented a system in our cart which allows your country's respective import taxes and VAT to be calculated and paid. So you won't have to pay anything when you receive your watch.

Why is there no Swiss Made label on CODE41 watches?

For a watch to be Swiss Made, at least 60% of its value must come from Switzerland, its movement must be Swiss, and it must be assembled in Switzerland. That means that a Swiss Made watch can be of great quality while consisting of components that largely come from other countries.

To ensure more clarity, we've opted for total transparency and chosen both Swiss and foreign components for their distinctive nature and their high value for money, and not to meet the criteria of a label that only leads to confusion. That's why, while the majority of our models comfortably meet the criteria, we've decided not to put the Swiss Made label on any of our watches.

How does the CODE41 pre-order system work?

In order to avoid excess stock, the gray market and waste, we've opted for a system based on pre-orders. It seemed more logical to only produce the quantities that we have pre-sold. So once or twice a year, we launch pre-orders for a new edition for a duration of 2 to 4 weeks. Delivery generally takes place 9 months later. While you wait, we allow you to experience the birth of your watch with a lot of videos and photos. 

How are the quantities decided for each edition?

For each collection, we define the quantity per batch in accordance with the monthly production capacity of our suppliers. In the case of the ANOMALY EVOLUTION, it will be 800 pieces per month. 

During pre-sales, once the first batch is sold out, a new batch is opened up with a delivery date a month later than the previous. For each edition, we only produce a maximum of 3 or 4 batches.

How long does the guarantee last and how does it work?

ANOMALY EVOLUTION watches are guaranteed for 2 years from the date of delivery. In the event of a technical issue, all you need to do is contact us and we'll arrange the collection and redelivery of your product, as well as its repair.

Are the straps compatible with all CODE41 watches?

The 38mm ANOMALY EVOLUTION watches have a lug width of 21mm, meaning the straps are compatible with the 37 and 40mm DAY41 models. The 41.5mm ANOMALY EVOLUTION watches, on the other hand, have a lug width of 24mm and are compatible with the ANOMALY-01 and 02, X41 and NB24.

    Hola :
    Me pareció tan impresionante el Anomaly Evolution que el 10/05/21 lo compré . El diseño es un acierto . Opté por el modelo de Acero , Azul y Verde , con correa azul perforada de becerro , todo ello en 38 mm. Sólo me queda esperar a recibirlo y a fe que estoy ansioso pues tal es mi confianza que cuento los días para su llegada . Felicidades al equipo de CODE41 .

  9. simon.robinson@robinson-bbc.com says:

    Salut Code41,
    Congratulations on the very impressive collection! Both the designs and the value for money are unlike most known and traditionally branded watches.
    I am interested in and registered for the Anomaly Evolution model. However, how is it possible to choose the exact variation of the model which I would like to purchase? Certain combinations of the finishing don’t appeal to me so much. Others, more so. Also the size should be 41,5mm. When will it be possible to receive the final cost and expected month of availability of the chosen piece?, i.e. VAT, custom duties, shipping (Germany) ……..
    Since I’m often in Geneva, is it possible to collect the pre-ordered watch at your HQ in Lausanne?
    Cheers, Simon

      Hi Jereniah ! Thank you for your interest 🙂

      CODE41 were founded by luxury timepiece designer Claudio D’Amore in 2016. Having designed watches for the biggest Swiss brands such as Tag Heuer and Montblanc for 10 years, Claudio set his sights on a new venture that would create watches of the highest quality with the help of an engaged community of timepiece enthusiasts who could play an active role in the design process. The company is based in the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry, its spiritual home.

      The project has been built with a policy of total transparency with their customers – of origin, price and production – meaning that their community are safe in the knowledge that they are investing in an excellent watch at a fair price. This community is now comprised of 300,000 like-minded people who love watchmaking and share CODE41’s values.
