CODE41 builds on NB24 success with a second edition

0

In April 2020, the work towards CODE41’s first NB24 began and after a nine month process, pre-orders launched.

An enormous success, 1,380 pieces sold for a total of over CHF 5.3m, but given that initial success, a number of fans were unable to get their hands on one.

In a bid to rectify that problem, CODE41 has opened pre-orders on Edition 2 of the NB24.

Closing on December 16th, there are just two weeks left for fans to get their hands on the chronograph which famously features both an exceptional movement and a dial-side peripheral weight.

In launching the piece online, CODE41 took the time to explain how it has managed to offer the mechanical movement, fitted with a peripheral weight on the dial side at an affordable price.

It explained: “As the chronograph is one of our partner Concepto’s specialties, we’ve been able to make use of their base, constructed using the architecture of the famous “Valjoux” 7750 movement, known for its robustness and reliability.

“Then we’ve modified it by moving the counters, redesigning the bridges, and above all adding a peripheral weight on the dial side. This rare complication alone accounts for a third of the cost of production. It’s important to point out that all of the components, except for the mainspring and the jewels, are produced in-house.”

Adding: “In addition to the financial benefit, using an existing base, which has already been at optimal reliability for a number of years, avoids the tiresome problems of youth.”

The NB24 chronograph is available in AeroCarbon and in grade 5 titanium; high-tech materials that reflect the strong, technical character of the case and the dial.

Each model is also offered with a wide range of interchangeable straps, including the latest addition: the R41 rubber strap which is available in 5 different colors.

NB24 are produced only in a short numbered series so CODE41 has encouraged lovers to get on-board with only just over 200 out of 400 pieces available.
