ANOMALY Evolution Edition 2: The Iconic Model’s Remarkable Rebirth

A few weeks after the launch of a tourbillon model resolutely focused on haute horlogerie, CODE41 returns to its core target.

In 2016, CODE41 revolutionized the routine of Swiss watchmaking by offering the general public the opportunity to participate directly in the creation of an exceptional watch, produced in the most total transparency and for an unbeatable technicality to price ratio. First attempt, master stroke: the ANOMALY will sell more than 15,000 copies. A success that the young Swiss brand confirms with each new project, ever more ambitious and always in line with its fundamental values. Community, transparency and excellence: a counter-current recipe that delights its thousands of passionate members.

ANOMALY Evolution, the perfect synthesis

A few weeks after the launch of a tourbillon model resolutely focused on fine watchmaking, CODE41 returns to its core target by offering the second edition of one of its emblematic watches, ANOMALY Evolution.

A worthy heir to the collection that launched the young Swiss brand, the ANOMALY Evolution brilliantly represents its founding principles. Thus, the members were asked at all stages to actively participate in the creation of the watch. Design, materials, complications: each feature represents the voice of the community, which is expressed through direct votes. A unique participatory approach that has become the signature of CODE41.

Conceived as a fusion of the two previous models, the ANOMALY Evolution is inspired by the technical design of the -01 and incorporates the Swiss movement and the date of the -02. But that’s far from everything! Following the recommendations of original ANOMALY owners, CODE41 has made a whole series of improvements that propel the Evolution into a new category.

A myriad of novelties

For this long-awaited second edition of early fans who missed the boat in 2021, the ANOMALY Evolution returns with an additional color. And it is the anthracite and orange dress that wins the votes, a combo that sublimates the very particular technical design of the watch.

But it is above all on the technical level that the Evolution differs from its big sisters. First, CODE41 has upgraded the original movement with a robust Sellita SW200-1 in an elaborate version, for an increased precision of -7/+7 daily seconds.

The anti-reflective sapphire crystal also makes its appearance on the front side, but also for the new transparent case back, which allows you to contemplate the gears in a new light. The general ergonomics have been optimized: the watch is thinner and the display more readable with a Luminova that is twice as powerful. And to top it off, the crown has been reinforced and the water resistance increased to 100 meters. A technical achievement without compromise for only 1348 francs!

CODE41, a recipe for success

CODE41 never stops. After six months of non-stop novelties, the small Lausanne team is kicking off the summer with the reissue of a flagship model of participatory watchmaking that has long been demanded by its community. A return with great fanfare, proof that CODE41 occupies a special place within the watch industry and in the hearts of enthusiasts. Participatory at heart, transparent from the box to the needles and benefiting from a stunning technical price ratio, the ANOMALY Evolution Edition 2 is available for pre-order until July 19, 2023, exclusively on the CODE41 website.
