CODE41 Launch New ANOMALY T-4 with Skeletonised Dial and Sustainable Case

CODE41 Anomaly T-4 Black PVD

CODE41 recently wowed with the launch of the X41, a collection that takes high end watchmaking and makes it accessible. A sapphire cased watch for just £14,000 is almost unthinkable. However, with the new CODE41 ANOMALY T-4 they’ve taken the concept of accessibility even further with a fresh design.

As with all CODE41 watches, the ANOMALY T-4 was developed with the input of dedicated CODE41 fans and collectors. The key components that the community helped to shape were the presence of a skeletonised dial, allowing you to see the movement from above and to build on the innovations of recent CODE41 watches such as the Evolution. Additionally, there was a concerted effort to seek more sustainable methods of production. If we consider these fan-led elements to be the brief for CODE41, the brand executed on it perfectly.

CODE41 Anomaly T-4 Collection

Starting with the dial, it’s been totally redesigned in order to deliver on the skeletonised design. Peripheral hour and minute tracks encompass portions of open dial through which you can see the Sellita SW200-1 S a movement beneath. There are also four black bridges in an X shape supporting the interior portion of the movement around the central hand stack. It’s a nice addition because the bridges add some colour that contrasts to the grey of the movement. That makes the display very legible, which is something skeletonised watches can struggle with.

As for the innovations inspired by the Evolution, those are also aimed at boosting the CODE41 ANOMALY T-4’s readability. Namely, the inclusion of Luminova on the hands and indexes that makes it easy to read the watch in low light conditions. The hour and minute hands are skeletonised with lume at their tips while the hour markers are classic bars.

Then in terms of improving sustainability CODE41 have improved their supply chain by working with Panatere, a pioneering Swiss company who produce 100% recycled steel. Recycled steel is pretty amazing because it has exactly the same properties as new steel except that the energy required to use it is dramatically reduced compared to the process of using fresh materials. This recycled steel is used for the 41.5mm diameter case, which has a cushion design with a round bezel.

Naturally, as the CODE41 ANOMALY T-4 has a skeletonised dial, the movement is the heart of the piece. As mentioned, it’s the Sellita SW200-1 S a, an automatic calibre with a power reserve of 38-hours and an accuracy of +/- 7 seconds per day. While this might seem like a significant downgrade from the manufacture exclusive movements in watches such as the X41, it’s still a solid calibre with decent specs and reliability, but most importantly it vastly improves the watch’s accessibility.
