CODE 41 Goes on a Mission to the Moon

Moonphase, the primary act of a brand new watchmaking odyssey

Within the pantheon of issues, the moonphase exerts an irresistible seduction over lovers of fantastic watches. After having put the motion within the highlight for nearly eight years with open-heart watches whose high-caliber skeletonisation and 3D-sculpted bridges have turn into an aesthetic signature, CODE41 has launched itself into an unprecedented journey. The Moon INCEPTION explores a brand new side of watchmaking and offers prominence to the classicism and poetry of the moon’s phases. 

Moon INCEPTION, a motion of pure watchmaking

The Moon INCEPTION is constructed on the C41-MP, a Swiss motion modified by CODE41 on the bottom of a Sellita structure, famend for its robustness and reliability. To make this motion distinctive, the Swiss watchmaking manufacturing unit AJS has been commissioned to create one of the crucial real looking moon disks and an oscillating weight that’s unique to this motion.

Between the convex sapphire crystal, the precision of the motion, and the water tightness to 10 ATM, the Moon INCEPTION is worthy of each little bit of reward. For probably the most demanding, the COSC certification is even supplied as an optionally available further, with a metronomic precision of -4/+6 seconds per day, and an official certificates accompanying every watch.

Between refinement and poetry, a lesson in watch design

In a delicate show of metatheater, the dial brilliantly performs with shapes, colors and textures: the grained background remembers the lunar floor, whereas the intertwined rings evoke its craters. The moon and date circles type an “8”, the image of infinity, authenticity and the facility of engagement. The convex sapphire crystal provides a retro-classical contact that brings the entire thing collectively.
