Goldgena Project CODE 41 - ANOMALY 1 & ANOMALY 2

The name Goldgena Project has been making rounds in social media and famous online horology forums since March 2016. Thanks to its innovative idea – TTO (Total Transparency on Origin) – the creators of this project have attracted tens of thousands of visitors to its website plus Facebook followers nearing 50,000.

The idea behind this project was to create attractive mechanical watches at affordable prices, with a policy of complete transparency on the origin of the components and prices. All while breaking away from the Swiss Made label and the traditional approach of a watchmaking industry in crisis. Now, Goldgena Project launches its brand, CODE 41 on popular crowd funding website, Kickstarter. Two models, ANOMALY 1 & ANOMALY 2 are being introduced, including a range of watch straps.
ANOMALY 1 features a sculpted dial and houses a Miyota 82S7 automatic movement whereas ANOMALY 2 features a more sober dial and houses a Swiss Made ETA 2824 automatic movement. Miyota 82S7 is a 21 jewels automatic movement. Beating at the rate 21,600 vph this Japanese origin movement can deliver a power reserve up to 40 hours. The 25 jewels, ETA 2824 self winding movement beats at the rate of 28,800 and offers power reserve up to 40 hours.
Available in silver or black version, ANOMALY 1’s dial, featuring a machined, partially opened design, accommodates skeleton hour and minute hands, small seconds disc and 24 hours disc. ANOMALY 2, featuring a sober and elegant dial available in black or silver version, houses skeleton hour and minute hands, central seconds hand and a window at 3’o clock for date display. Hands and indexes of both models are enhanced with super-Luminova for legibility during dark conditions.
Measuring 42mm diameter the stainless steel case has either satinated or sandblasted finishing and available in  steel or black/brown PVD versions. Its lugs and its screwed container design ensure strong, distinctive and recognizable appeal to the watch. Case thickness of ANOMALY 1& ANOMALY 2 is 12.8 mm and 12.2mm respectively. Lug width is 25 mm. Its front glass is sapphire crystal with AR coating and rear side of the watch is secured with screwed stainless steel caseback featuring CODE 41 logo. Water resistance is 50 meters. Both timepieces are offered with interchangeable straps crafted in calf leather.

By backing the CODE 41 Kickstarter campaign, customers can pre-order the timepieces, with pledge levels starting from CHF 447 for ANOMALY 1 (Miyota 82S7) and CHF 525 for ANOMALY 2 (ETA 2824).
