Thanks a million!

A big thanks to everyone. X41 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!

Quintessential watchmaking

The creation of a high-end movement is quintessential for fans of fine mechanical watchmaking. Until now, that pleasure was reserved for only the most fortunate. For their second project, the CODE41 team has decided to change all of that!

What makes the X41 project so special?

  1. The chance to wear a piece of Fine Watchmaking at a price the competition can't match
  2. Movement designed, manufactured and assembled entirely in Switzerland
  3. Exclusive architecture and design just for the CODE41 community
  4. Exclusive peripheral oscillating weight only mastered by a handful of brands
  5. Price of less than 5'500 $, wheres similar pieces cost 20'000 $, and often much more
  6. Finished and assembled by hand. Pure watchmaking Art

The first X41s are spreading joy !

Everything is going like a dream with the production of Edition 3. Our watchmakers are currently assembling the 297 components that make up this exceptional movement. As for the 700 pieces from the previous editions, they've already spread joy to many, despite a delay resulting from Covid-19. Some of them were even able to visit the workshops and follow the machining of their X41 movement. Pure joy !

X41 Edition 4. Perfection. Upgraded.

During the design of the very first series of the X41 project, we did everything we could to create a watch that was exceptional in every way. But for this new edition, we've raised the bar even higher with the launch of the AeroCarbon.

X41 AeroCarbon - high-density aeronautic carbon fiber

Extremely resistant and 2x lighter than titanium, carbon fiber is one of those technical materials that goes perfectly with mechanical watchmaking magic. But for our X41, we didn't want just any old carbon fiber; we wanted the best of the best. The AeroCarbon's case is made from a type of carbon fiber normally used exclusively in the aeronautics and aerospace industry. Made on demand in France, the blocks of carbon fiber are made up of over 300 layers, each positioned at 90° to the previous and then compacted under 10 bars of pressure in an autoclave oven. This process guarantees an exceptional composite 2.5 times more resistant to bending than steel. In addition, due to its high densite, the AeroCarbon is watertight without the need to add a titanium chamber, as is the case with the carbon fiber normally used in watchmaking, which is less dense and more porous.

What defines a high-end movement?

These are limited edition movements (around 50 to 1,000) made according to an exclusive design and architecture. The finishing and assembly are performed by hand. The time is generally displayed on the movement, without a dial, in order to showcase the magic of these mechanical sculptures.

Exclusive peripheral oscillating weight

The peripheral weight fitted to the X41 movement is a symbol of the genuine technical feats achieved by only a handful of brands. Many big-name brands have already attempted to integrate such a feature, often only to abandon it because the ball bearing was too loud, inefficient and costly to implement. In the case of the X41 movement, after several years of development, these problems have been resolved by the brand’s partner by machining the components of the ball bearing in-house, in order to guarantee perfect dimensions and finishing.

Numbered edition

The complexity of the X41 movement, namely the fact that a large number of the processes are performed by hand, means a fairly long production period. That's why X41 watches are only produced in small, numbered series. Don't miss your chance to pre-order one of the few EDITION 4 pieces.

No risk, all rewards

The X41 watch is more than Swiss Made

For a watch to be Swiss Made, at least 60% of its value must come from Switzerland. The figure for the X41 project is 90%, easily exceeding this requirement. Such a high quantity of Swiss components is very rare! However, the X41 watches will bear no mention of being Swiss Made, as CODE41 has been opposed to this misleading label since the very start.

The X41 project offers unbeatable value and magic for money.

Total transparency

With our TTO label, standing for Total Transparency on Origin, we've based our approach around being transparent. We clearly explain the origin and cost of each component and each process.


What's the secret behind such a high price/quality/magic ratio?

Fine watchmaking is inextricably associated with the world of luxury. The latter is a synonym for inaccessibility, social standing and even ostentation. These subjective criteria have the unfortunate tendency to propel prices to artificially high levels. For the X41 project we are focused on objective values, like high quality and superior expertise. The production costs and margins allowing the project to be profitable are clearly explained. Direct distribution, minimal markups and transparency on costs are all criteria that allow us to offer the X41 at a price that the competition just can't match.

Direct Distribution
Minimal markups required for profitability
~5'500 $
Transparence on costs
~5'500 $
Traditionnal Distribution
High markups luxury market positionning
Fine Watchmaking
~20'000 $
Hidden costs
Fine Watchmaking
~20'000 $
The retail price is not the result of market positioning, but rather a direct reflection of the costs of production

Competition with the big brands

Some of you have made the very relevant comment that at these prices, we're going to find ourselves competing with the big brands. If your heart is set on a more prestigious name in the same price range, clearly we won't be able to compete with that. But if your attention is drawn above all to the object and its mechanics, then the X41 project offers unbeatable value and magic for money.

An industry-leading partner

Developing a fine manufacture movement isn't something you can make up as you go along. which is why we've called on one of the best creators in Switzerland. Timeless Manufacture are distinctive in that they create all of the components used in their movements in-house, except for the balance wheel. This is a fact that deserves to be mentioned, because it's not uncommon to find manufacture movements fitted with components from industrial movements.

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.
Do I have to pay import taxes upon receipt of my watch?
No. We've implemented a system in our cart that allows us to calculate and pay your country's respective customs duties and VAT. This means you won't have to pay anything upon receipt of your watch.
Are the X41 movements COSC certified?
No. All of our X41 movements are tested individually by our watchmakers in 5 different positions, and precisely adjusted according to criteria similar to the COSC. In addition, this certification would require us to increase the retail price by several hundred euros, without providing any real added value.
Why has the price gone up since the first pre-orders in March?
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. Production isn't launched until a minimum number of members are supporting the project. To say thanks to these people, we offer them a launch price that just allows us to cover our costs, with no profit. The following series are offered at a "normal" price, though this price remains much, much lower than that of similar pieces.

    ich könnte mich begeistern wenn ihr Uhren mit mit 38- max 40 mm Durchmesser anbieten würdet. Wenn Ihr eine Dress Watch anbietet würde ich mich freuen wenn Ihr mich anschreiben würdet. Besten Dank!
    Viele Grüsse

      Thank you for your message. This is certainly an idea that interests us. We do not have any official plans for a tourbillon yet but we will certainly let you know if/when we do 🙂

    Guten Tag!
    Ich bin durch meinen beruflichen Hintergrund ein großer Freund von mechanischen/automatischen Armbanduhren.
    Gleichzeitig bin ich auch, ebenfalls beruflich bedingt; ein extremer Freund des schnellen Erkennens.
    So sehr mir das Uhrwerk gefällt, so wenig möchte ich mich beim ablesen ablenken lassen.
    Wenn sie also eine Uhr entwickeln/ gestalten mit Zifferblatt die das ablesen nach dem Prinzip des “Quick Scanning” (Großdatum ist sehr gut)
    erfüllt, bin ich sofort dabei. Vielleicht gibt es weitere Gleichgesinnte.
    Mit den besten Wünschen!

      Maurizio says:

      Je vous remercie pour votre commentaire. Nous n’avons pas de date officielle pour le moment. Cependant, je ne pense pas qu’elle le sera à la fin de l’année ; )

  4. Stefano De Marchis says:

    Quali orologi e di quale serie sono disponibili per un pre ordine?
    Sarei interessato a un Day 37. Nel caso quali modelli sarebbero disponibili?

    • Maurizio
      Maurizio says:

      Grazie per il vostro commento!
      Dato che ti sei iscritto alla lista d’attesa per questo progetto, sarai il primo ad essere avvisato di un’eventuale futura disponibilità.

    Je découvre votre site internet avec énormément de joie. Non seulement les montres sont techniquement et esthétiquement merveilleuses, mais votre transparence totale quant aux coûts et cette réelle prise en compte de l’avis customer sont juste de l’ordre du jamais vu.
    Petit commentaire personnel : je suis grand fan de la x1 mais ayant un poignet assez fin je me dirige généralement sur des boitiers de diamètre 36 / 37mm
    J’ai donc découvert la day41 qui est aussi une montre incroyable. Les éléments du squelette apparent seraient, je penses, intéressants s’ils existaient aussi dans d’autres coloris. Comme pour la x1 avec par exemple le boîtier acier gris et et quelques éléments du squelette bleuté.

    Je me suis inscris pour la day41 et attend avec impatience le moment où je pourrai la commander 😁😁😁

    Bonne continuation à vous ! Vous déchirez !
