CODE41 NB24 Chronograph Edition 2

Following the record sales recorded during the first edition, the CODE41 Swiss NB24 chronograph is making its big return with its Edition 2.

Initially launched in April 2020, the NB24 project met with the most enthusiastic of receptions when pre-orders opened in January of the following year. During the Creator Edition pre-orders, 1,380 copies were sold, generating a total of 5,298,394 CHF.

For this highly technical skeleton chronograph, a customized version of the celebrated Valjoux 7750 movement has been used. Reworked by CODE41, the exclusive design of the NB24 features a number of significant changes.

The bridges have been redesigned and the chronograph counters moved, so that the 30-minute disc is at 6 o’clock and the second disc at 3 o’clock. The peripheral oscillating weight is visible from the dial side.

Almost 85% of the NB24 comes from Switzerland, including nearly all of the 326 components, with the exception of the mainspring and the jewels. However, this watch does not feature the Swiss Made inscription. Instead, the NB24 is certified TTO, a label conceived by CODE41 which puts transparency on origin and costs of production at the heart of its approach.

The watch is fitted with high-quality sapphire crystal, both scratch-resistant and anti-reflective. It is watertight to a depth of 100 meters.
