AN INDUSTRY-LEADING PARTNER
Developing a fine manufacture movement isn’t something you can make up as you go along. The best expertise in this field is found in Switzerland, which is why we’ve called on one of the best creators in the country. 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. In addition, this self-sufficiency grants them complete control over quality and the time taken to acquire components.

How reliable is the X41 movement?
Even though the X41 movement has been developed exclusively for our community, the critical components – the regulating organ, cylinder and wheel train – have been optimized for reliability over several years.
What is the guarantee?
Despite all of our tests, technical issues can still arise. However in such rare cases, our special 3-year guarantee ensures that your watch will be collected at our expense and repaired in the shortest time possible.
How can I have my watch serviced if CODE41 no longer exists in 5 years?
It’s true, we are a young brand, and the fear that we might simply have ceased to exist in a few years is absolutely relevant! However there’s nothing to worry about, as our partner Timeless Manufacture is committed to guaranteeing all repairs under guarantee and the maintenance of all X41 watches, even if we run into some misfortune.
