After almost a year of waiting, the CODE41’s popular unisex watch DAY41 is finally available again for pre-order.
The DAY41 was born two years ago, when CODE41 decided to create a mechanical watch for women.
In June 2019 CODE41 began development of the DAY41 with the help of its community. Surprisingly, this model didn’t look anything like a classic women’s watch. Its lugs, its “chambered” case and its openwork dial gave it a raw, machined esthetic. Dedicated to women with a passion for mechanical timepieces, DAY41 is equally suitable for men.
The Creator Edition was then launched in January 2020, when it met with immense success among the CODE41 community, as proven by the 1,910 pieces sold. The reception for the second edition, unveiled in November 2020, was just as enthusiastic, with 1,109 pieces sold for a total (the two editions combined) of 3,831,865 CHF.
Inspired this success and the pressing demand of the CODE41 members, the brand is offering an edition 3 of the DAY41. This 3rd edition will be available for only 3 weeks, from October 13 to November 4 2021. Delivery is scheduled for summer 2022.
The price of the DAY41 will start from 1,150 CHF per piece. As with all CODE41 models, there’s nothing random about this rate; in order to be as fair as possible, the team has based it on the costs of production of the watch and on the minimum mark-up required to ensure its profitability.
This transparent approach is found in the label founded by CODE41, the TTO (Total Transparency on Origin). The idea behind its creation is to offer an alternative to the Swiss Made label, which, despite its strong reputation, continues to prove misleading for consumers.
The CODE41 DAY41 is equipped with the STP-15 self-winding movement of Swiss origin. Known for its excellent value for money and above-average technical performance, this calibre offers a minimal daily difference of -/+15 seconds. It has a power reserve of 44 hours (as opposed to the usual 40 hours) and has been tested in 5 different positions (normally 2 or 3).
The front and back of the watch are fitted with scratch-proof sapphire crystal, treated beforehand with an antireflective coating. As for the case, it’s made from high quality 316L stainless steel. Finally, the DAY41 is watertight to a depth of 100 meters.
The DAY41 comes in two sizes: 37mm and 40mm. In terms of colors, 5 variants are available for the 37mm, including one set with diamonds, and 3 variants for the 40mm size.
Future buyers of a DAY41 will be able to choose from a large selection of straps to suit all tastes. The new feature this year is the R41 strap, the latest addition to the CODE41 range. Made from FKM (Fluorocarbon Rubber), this high-end rubber strap is available in various colors.
