CODE41 presents X41 Edition 6, a new series offering fine mechanical watchmaking pieces including a high-end model with sapphire case. These new watches will be available for pre-order exclusively on the X41 project page from Tuesday April 12 2022 at 3pm until May 4 2022 at 3pm.
Because of its exceptional hardness, Sapphire is an extremely difficult material to work. It demands high levels of expertise to create sapphire watch cases. Not a single error can be permitted throughout each stage of its production, from machining to polishing, up to and including its assembly.
Sapphire comes with many distinct properties. Firstly, its hardness is very much superior to that of steel, titanium and other materials. This unique quality grants it incredible resistance to scratching. Two times lighter than steel, sapphire also offers exceptional comfort for your wrist. Another important advantage is its transparency, which allows the splendor of the X41’s skeleton movement to be admired from every angle.
CODE41 is offering two more variants of this watch: the X41 AeroCarbon and the X41 Titanium. The movements all X41 timepieces incorporate colored bridges.
9 new bridge colors were subject to the community’s vote, with two selected for this Edition 6: green and rainbow. These two new colors have been added to the existing list and are available in all configurations: Sapphire, AeroCarbon and grade 5 Titanium. To create colored bridges, CODE41 has collaborated with Positive Coating SA, Swiss specialists in the decoration of watch components.
The translucent strap is the other big new feature for this 6th edition of the X41. As well as offering a case made entirely of sapphire, allowing for a mesmerizing transparency, the X41 Edition 6 can be paired with a translucent R41 strap for an even more captivating transparent experience. The translucent strap is available for all models in this 6th edition.
Available from 14,793 CHF, the X41 Edition 6 Sapphire offers exceptional value for money, made possible by an even more drastic reduction of the mark-ups applied to this model, with the aim of making this Fine Watchmaking piece accessible to as many people as possible.
The exclusive CODE41 manufacture movement was designed, produced and assembled entirely in Switzerland in limited series. It comes with a peripheral oscillating weight.
Founded in 2016 by Claudio D’Amore, CODE41’s mission is to make the art of watchmaking accessible to all. The X41 Edition 6 will be available from: 5,393 CHF for the titanium version, 5,893 CHF for the AeroCarbon version and 14,793 CHF for the sapphire version.
