It’s already been 3 years since we set out on this watchmaking adventure, and it’s true, we’ve only created watches for men. But we want to redeem ourselves, and with this new DAY41 project it’s you, Ladies, who are in the spotlight! Throughout the whole project, only your votes will count. Guys, you’re obviously welcome too! We’re counting on you to provide your sound advice.
CODE41 isn’t 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 individuals thus become project Creators. CODE41 is built around a policy of total transparency on origin, costs and development.
Let’s set out the basics!
We’re in tune with you! Before diving into the design of the DAY41 watch, we have to decide on the basics.
The majority of women’s watches are fitted with electronic quartz movements. These have the advantage of being thin and relatively cheap, but they lack the beauty and magic of mechanical movements.
Estimated retail price: 600 to 650 EUR/CHF
Recharges through wrist movements
Estimated retail price: 750 to 1’000 EUR/CHF
In general, women’s watches are designed with simple, elegant lines. Do technicality and mechanics really leave you cold?
TECHNICALITY / SPORT
VISIBLE MECHANICS / SKELETON
By way of example, our men’s ANOMALY model has a diameter of 42mm. Women’s watches generally have a diameter of 33 to 38mm. What do you think?
PRESENT EXAMPLE 42 mm
