The X41 is back for Edition 6: the new features

2022 has started with a flourish at CODE41. Having already given you news on the Mecascape, a completely crazy project that goes off the beaten track, and then offered up our Watch Winder collection for recharging your precious timepieces in the most beautiful of boxes, we’re back with a first-rate announcement. Yes, you read the title right: the X41 is back with an Edition 6!

A truly exceptional example of watchmaking, the X41 is the result of long months of development between the CODE41 teams and the members of the community, with the aim of making Fine Watchmaking accessible to all in its purest form. The result: a skeleton watch with an exclusive movement made and assembled entirely in Switzerland, notably featuring a peripheral oscillating weight, a rare and costly technical feature currently mastered by only a handful of brands. A level of technicality that’s quite simply impossible to find on the watch market at this price.

After pre-orders for the Edition 5 in June 2021, many of you asked us which changes would be made for the Edition 6, initially scheduled for summer 2022. So we’ve been working on the subject. Assiduously. And the least we can say is that you won’t be disappointed!

Some color for the bridges

We wanted to offer new colors for the X41’s bridges. In order to do so, we’ve collaborated with Positive Coating, Swiss specialists in surface treatments and decorating watch components.

And as always, it’s up to you to decide. Vote now for the color of the Edition 6’s bridges from the selection below:

Ceramic bezel

What is ceramic, and what advantages does it offer?

Ceramic is a material widely used in watchmaking, due to the many benefits it offers. First appearing in the 1980s, today it is used in high-end watch models and is offered in a wide variety of different compositions.

We’ve studied the idea of adding a ceramic bezel in a choice of several colors for the X41, for the many advantages that it offers, both esthetic and material. As this could lead to a slight increase in price in comparison with the current models, the decision is up to you.

They all share the same qualities; ceramic is: 

Resistant to oxidation

Hypoallergenic

Extremely resistant to scratches

(which is why some even boast of their “scratch-proof” nature)

Very hard

Allowing to avoid (or mostly avoid) suffering the ravages of time (no deformation)

Would you be thrilled with this development?
(extra cost around 350 CHF/350 EUR)

Sizeable suprises still to come

The changes don’t stop there for this new Edition. But we can’t say any more for now, as the team is still working on finalizing the technical details of the project.

Still just a little more patience required before we can reveal the surprises that we’ve got in store…

Pre-orders: from summer to spring!

The wait. When you decide to take the leap and acquire a Fine Watchmaking piece, the wait is always very long and hard. You always want everything, straight away! 

So in order to alleviate this ordeal, we’ve moved around our project calendar for 2022. The result: we’ve managed to move the pre-orders forward to spring. Take note of this date: on Tuesday, April 12, pre-orders will open for the X41 Edition 6, for a duration of 3 weeks and not a day longer. Prepare yourselves!

Next steps

You have two weeks to take part in the voting phase, which will determine the color selected for decorating the bridges of the X41 Edition 6, as well as the choice of whether or not to go with a ceramic bezel.

Then, from April 12, you’ll be able to head over to the project page to discover all of the new features and developments that we’ve introduced for this new Edition, including the surprises we have in store 😉. You’ll be able to directly pre-order the X41 of your dreams in the configuration of your choosing!

      We can’t wait to hear your point of you in the upcoming weeks! 😍

    Ik ben heel erg geïnteresseerd om en X41 aan te kopen type X41 titanium groen met geperforeerd bruin lederen armband zoals vertoond op één van jullie foto’s (met roze mouwkleur). Hoe verder ?
    Dank bij voorbaat. Echt prachtige horloge.

      Hallo Mic,

      hartelijk dank voor uw belangstelling!

      Sorry, de X41 met de groene brug kan alleen opnieuw besteld worden bij de volgende X41 pre-orders.

  4. Jules says:

    Hi, great story and love the look of the X41 watch. Do you know when you’ll be accepting pre-orders for the next production run?

    • Zaineb
      Zaineb says:

      Hey Jules,

      We’re glad you like it! It’s one of our most special watches. ⌚

      We just closed the pre-order a couple of weeks ago and are yet to confirm the date of the next pre-order, but would you like me to add you to the waiting list in case we have a watch available ?

  5. Repond David says:

    Bonjour
    Ce n’est pas tout à fait à propos de ce modèle mais serait il possible de faire un mouvement avec un tourbillon?
    Ou cela augmenterait énormément le prix?

    Merci salutations

    • Zaineb
      Zaineb says:

      Bonjour David,

      Bonne nouvelle ! Nous avons déjà un projet tourbillon en cours. 🤐 Nous partagerons plus d’informations (prix y compris) dans les prochains mois 🤩

    Liebes Code-41-Team!
    Ich sehe mir nun schon seit mehreren Tagen immer wieder Eure Page bzw. die Bilder und Videos zu dieser unglaublich schönen Uhr an… Eine wirklich aussergewöhnlich schöne Uhr!

    Da ich jedoch wegen meiner Behinderung zum Hausmann verdammt bin, scheint es für mich ein unerreichbarer Traum zu bleiben, dieses Kunstwerk an Mechanik, Handwerk und Design jemals für mich selbst ordern zu können…

    Ich bin 39 Jahre und sammle seit meiner frühen Jugend Uhren in diversen Ausführungen, natürlich gehört jedoch leider (noch) kein Stück aus einem solchen Segment dazu.

    Gäbe es (vor dem Hintergrund einem Menschen mit Handicap eine grosse Freude zu bereiten…) dennoch vielleicht eine Möglichkeit, einen retourniertes, storniertes oder auch gebrauchtes (z.B. Vorführ-)Exemblar in Titangehäuse (PVD-Farbgebung und Armbandausführung nicht prioritär) zu einem reduzierten Tarif zu erstehen??

    Vielen Dank bereits vorab!

    Freundliche Grüsse
    J. Martin

      Hallo Jürgen,

      vielen Dank für Ihre Nachricht und Ihr Interesse an unseren X41 Uhren.

      Es tut mir leid, leider haben wir keine X41 zu einem reduzierten Preis.

    Je n’y trouve pas mon compte! Je trouve ses caractéristiques très brutales et agressives. L’arc en ciel n’apporte que trop peu de féminité. Moins d’arètes et plus de rondeur seraient bienvenues… et des couleurs plus franches pour féminiser certaines versions! Fan de montres « squelette » , j’ai hâte de trouver une alternative aux Swatch que je porte depuis une quinzaine d’années.

      Bonjour,

      Merci pour votre retour ! La X41 a en effet une silhouette assez masculine. Quelle couleur féminine souhaiteriez-vous voir dans le futur ? 😍

      J’en profite pour vous demander de ce que vous pensez de la DAY41 37 mm initialement développée pour les femmes ? Notamment la Rose Gold ?
