Thanks a million!

A big thanks to everyone. DAY41 pre-orders are now closed. Thanks to the CODE41 members who've supported the project, we've once again managed to shake up the traditional watchmaking industry. We're now ready to enter the second phase: production!

Waiting list

If you're just now jumping on the bandwagon and want to join us behind the scenes, sign up to the waiting list. What's more, if a new series of DAY41 pre-orders ever happens, you'll be the first to know.

From women’s watch to genderless watch

The DAY41 project is a result of the direct impetus of our female community. After thousands of votes and comments on their part, concerning the design, movement and diameter, it will finally be brought to life 8 months after its launch. The result goes against the flow of traditional watchmaking: a strong, sophisticated mechanical piece that, when all's said and done, works just as well on a woman's arm as on a man's.
In attempting to create a beautiful women’s watch, in the end we’ve quite simply made a beautiful watch, regardless of gender.

Mechanical magic

Until now, women’s watchmaking mostly consisted of quartz (battery-powered) watches, and a few mechanical watches with very high price tags. But thanks to the DAY41 project - and your votes, Ladies - we’re paving the way for self-assured women’s watchmaking, with no more butterflies and dragonflies.

It’s even better in person!

A lucky few had the chance to discover the DAY41 prototypes ahead of time. Check out their off the cuff reactions:

Why contribute to the project during its launch?

  • Receive a numbered piece engraved with “CREATOR EDITION”
  • Become a creator member of the DAY41 project
  • Enjoy a launch price that’s much lower than the future price
CODE41 is not a brand in the traditional sense of the term; it’s more of a community project. The aim is to bring enthusiasts together around a watchmaking project in order to make it a reality. Said enthusiasts thus become Creators of the project.

An exclusive design that goes against the flow

Mechanical watches are traditionally the exclusive domain of men. Thanks to the participation of thousands of women, and heightened creativity, the DAY41 project shows that they too are fond of raw, machined, mechanical designs. In fact, the case is simple and elegant, while both its lugs and its chambered structure lend it a strong, specific, recognizable esthetic. The openwork dial becomes an extension of the movement, allowing the mechanical magic to shine through.

Quartz or Mechanical movement?

The majority of women’s watches are fitted with electronic quartz (battery-powered) movements. Such movements have the advantage of being thin and relatively cheap, though their batteries pose a real ecological problem. What’s more, they lack the beauty and magic of their mechanical counterparts.
If the quartz movement is a B movie, the mechanical movement is a cult classic.

How do you recharge a mechanical movement?

“Automatic” mechanical movements are fitted with an oscillating weight that recharges the watch through movements of the wrist. In swinging from left to right, the weight winds up the mainspring, just like those little cars that you have to push backwards so that they leap forwards as soon as they are released.

The DAY41 collection in 37 and 40mm

In order for the DAY41 to be able to adapt to any size of wrist (male or female), it will be available in 37mm and 40mm diameters. 5 color variants are available for the 37mm model, included one set with diamonds, with 3 variants for the 40mm. In addition, a wide range of straps will be on offer to satisfy all tastes.

Eco-friendly straps

Our straps are fitted with an ingenious system that allows you to change your style quickly, simply and without tools. The collection consists of a varied selection of leather straps, and a steel bracelet. What's more, we've also developed 3 eco-friendly straps made from biodegradable leather, flax and even recycled paper. The icing on the cake? All of our straps are fitted with a 3-blade deployment buckle with pushers! It’s simply the best.

Swiss mechanical movement

We’ve chosen the Swiss mechanical STP movement for its excellent value for money. In addition, for a standard movement, its skeleton design is particularly successful. It boasts the distinctive features of an above-average power reserve, at 44 hours (usually 40 hours), being tested in 5 positions (normally 2 to 3), and precision worthy of the best movements, with a daily difference of -0/+15 seconds.

Total transparency

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

An unbeatable price-quality-magic ratio

Direct distribution, minimal mark-ups and transparency on costs are some of the key criteria that allow us to offer the DAY41 at a price that defies all competition.
The retail price is not the result of market positioning, but rather a direct reflection of the costs of production.
For all of our projects, we choose to work only with grade A suppliers; in other words, the best there are. The DAY41 is made from high-quality 316L steel. Particular attention is paid to the finishing, whether it be glossing, polishing or micro-beading.

Frequently asked questions

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS FOR CANCELLATION AND RETURNS?
As long as your order has not yet been dispatched, you can cancel it free of charge, or modify your choice of strap (according to availability). After delivery, you will have 30 days to return your order for free, unused and in its original packaging, in order to receive a full refund.

    What is current status on men’s Day41 watches (40mm) . When are they available and what is the price. It is pity you did not opt for 42mm case diameter. Can you confirm which ETA movement is used in this watch.

    Bonjour,

    Quand est-ce que la montre Day 41 en 40mm sera de nouveau disponible ?
    Je possède une anomaly 01 que j’adore mais le design different de ce nouveau modèle me plaît énormément. De plus, il me semble avoir vu de nouveaux bracelets (caoutchouc ?) qui s’accorderaient parfaitement bien avec.

    Merci d’avance pour votre retour, a bientôt !

    • Maurizio Motter says:

      Bonjour Vincent,

      Merci pour votre message. Pour l’instant, il est difficile de dire quand un Day41 sera disponible mais nous vous tiendrons au courant de toute nouvelle par e-mail 🙂

      Bien à vous,

    • Maurizio Motter says:

      Je vous souhaite une bonne journée,

    I missed the boat on the window for voting. Will Code41 will create a smaller Day41 in the future? That 33mm size was absolutely perfect. I’m a short and skinny woman, and a 37mm watch is too big for many petite women like myself (even if 37mm physically fits me, that size is too big and uncomfortable for everyday wear). Please come out with the smaller 33mm size in the future. That would be beyond awesome!

    • Maurizio Motter says:

      Hi Vivian,

      Thank you for your message. I will invite you to sign up for the waiting list as well as our newsletter (this is done by having an account on our website). This way, you will know the exact details of all future projects.
      I will also pass this information to our product team. We want our watches to fit all wrist sizes comfortably 🙂
      Have a nice weekend!
