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


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?

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!

    Congratulations to Claudio and the whole CODE41 team: the sixth X41 edition, which I personally joined (after being a NB24 Creator member), far exceeds the numbers of the fifth edition !!!
    … a success in the success of the X41 project that, in my opinion, deserves a few more details on the executed pre-orders, to be considered as the final vote that the community has “concretely” expressed on this watch. I believe that the whole community and fans of the X41 project would like to know more about this sixth edition, full of options: how pre-orders were divided on the three cases (Titanium, AeroCarbon, Sapphire), which is the podium of the first three colors of the bridges, etc.
    I suggest this initiative because I think it is exciting for the community and I started to see with pleasure the first events of this kind on the CODE41 website at the end of the Watchwinder pre-orders: I would continue like this also in this recent sixth edition X41, certainly a much more interesting project.

      Bonjour Marie,

      Ravie de vous éclairer ! Je viens de vérifier votre historique et il semble que vous ayez commandé le pre-boarding pass de la DAY41. Vous pourrez donc commander votre montre un jour avant tous nos clients cet été et ce, comme convenu. ⌚

      Passez une bonne journée !

    Bonjour à toute l équipe, juste une petit message pour vous dire que la nouvelle x41 en saphir est juste magnifique. Un grand bravo à vous.

  4. Tobias Rohacher says:

    Hello, I have my X41 since one year (as a gift) but it needs manual rewinding every 3-4 days. From the very beginning the power reserve did not reach 45 hours and the peripheral weight seems to turn well only in onbe direction. Is that normal?

    • Zaineb
      Zaineb says:

      Hey Tobias,

      Thank you for letting us know! The power reserve depends on many aspects such as how you move when wearing it. I’ll ask our Customer Service Team to reach out to you, assist you with your watch, and reply to any questions you have.

      Have a nice day ⌚

      Hey Juko,

      No, not for the moment, but I’ll definitely forward the suggestion to the team in charge. That should look awesome!

  5. Serge Nieriker says:

    Bravo à toute l’équipe !
    Lorsque vous nous avez annonçé “une surprise de taille” j’ai imaginé une montre avec un mouvement similaire mais un calibre plus petit.
    Mais vous étiez dans quelque chose de prestigieux: un boitier en saphir.
    Le prix et l’étanchéité s’en ressentent bien sûr mais c’est une vraie merveille.
    Une très belle nouveauté est aussi le bracelet en caoutchouc incolore. J’espère qu’il profitera également aux autres montres de votre collection.
    Je vous souhaite donc plein succès et à priori c’est très bien parti: le prmier lot a été presque entièrement liquidé en seulement quelques heures.

    • Zaineb
      Zaineb says:

      Bonjour Serge,

      Vous êtes visiblement un connaisseur ! Le boitier Saphir est en effet e x c e p t i o n n e l, une pure merveille !!

      Le premier lot a été réservé très rapidement ⌚ Nous essayerons d’avoir le bracelet en plusieurs tailles.”

    Hi Code 41 Team,

    pre-ordering the x41 – will you charge my credit card now, or at the time of dispatch? Do not want to pay roughly 6 TEUR for 1 year in advance…


    • Zaineb
      Zaineb says:

      Hey Gabor,

      To optimize the stock and make sure each client has the watch he wants, we only produce the watches that were pre-ordered in advance. The payment is therefore withdrawn once the pre-order is confirmed on the website.

  7. Paolo Cocchi says:

    Sono già possessore di un X41 in titanio e un NB24 in aerocarbon ma l’X41 in zaffiro è un vero capolavoro, avete superato voi stessi. Bravissimi 👏👏👏
