CODE41 welcomes a second edition to the ANOMALY EVOLUTION family in a move that comes two years after the first edition, this time with an additional colour for a dash of dynamism. A testament to resilience, the ANOMALY EVOLUTION was designed in the middle of a watchmaking crisis and a global pandemic. A supply chain issue brought on at the height of the pandemic in 2021 saw newfound difficulty in procuring the ETA and Miyota movements that were utilised in both the Anomaly-01 and 02, effectively making them no longer available. 

Enter the ANOMALY EVOLUTION Edition 2 which features the technical design of its predecessor the 01 while including the Swiss movement and date of the 02 version. The community was heavily involved in every part of the watchmaking process, ultimately deciding the new orange colour of the ANOMALY EVOLUTION. This one-of-a-kind participatory approach is a staple for the Swiss watchmaking manufacturer. 

The movement ANOMALY EVOLUTION Edition 2 is a Sellita SW200-1 Special, with a precision of -7/+7 seconds per day, an enhancement from its predecessors the Anomaly-02 which had a precision of -/+12 and the Anomaly-01’s precision of -20/+ 40 seconds per day. When it comes to aesthetics, the timepiece incorporates enhanced ergonomics and a reduced thickness of 11.2mm. ANOMALY EVOLUTION also comes with enhanced readability and amplified watertightness to 100 meters plus an Incabloc shock absorber for added durability to support the balance wheel. The introduction of an exhibition caseback allows the movement to be admired. 

Bridging the gap between tradition and innovation, CODE41’s unparalleled approach to watchmaking alongside total transparency with the community proves why the brand continues to be one of the biggest watch disruptors on the market. 

The 300 Edition 2 pieces will be available for pre-order from 21 June 2023 until 19 July 2023 on
