Who we are

The CODE41 is run by a small watch design workshop called cosanova, and is currently made up of 9 people. Founded in 2005 by the designer Claudio D’Amore, the workshop is based in the heart of Swiss watchmaking, in Lausanne, not far from Geneva. In little more than 11 years, the cosanova workshop has had the honor of working with around forty watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, Parmigiani, Montblanc, Oris, Eberhard and even Hautlence.

In March 2016, cosanova workshop launched the GOLDGENA PROJECT and began sowing the seeds of doubt in the hushed world of Swiss watchmaking by exposing the secrets of the Swiss Made label.

This project has made some people very unhappy but others, many others, have joined us in this project which will led to the creation of CODE41. Thought as a community brand, CODE41 aims to create attractive mechanical watches at reasonable prices, through a policy of complete transparency on origin, costs and development.
