NB24 Chronograph: Breaking Down the 3rd Edition
The most recent release of the CODE41 NB24 Chrono brings with it some exciting innovations and the extension of cherished hallmarks from previous editions.
Stratom Case: The Game Changer
The 3rd Edition of NB24 now proudly sports the Stratom case – a recent sensation that made waves during the T360 Tourbillon launch.
New NB24 With Stratom Case (Blue Dial)
A blend of urban appeal and athletic charm, the Stratom design is defined by its multi-layer build, sporty lines, and four pronounced screws. A contemporary touch for those who cherish modern aesthetics.
This Stratom-case NB24 will be available exclusively in grade-5 titanium
NativeDNA Case: Timeless Elegance
The iconic NB24 NativeDNA case remains a staple choice for CODE41 traditionalists. Its chambered structure and unique lugs beautifully emphasize a classic charm. It’s no wonder it remains a perennial favorite.
NB24 NativeDNA AeroCarbon Case
This NativeDNA case will be available both in AeroCarbon and grade-5 titanium.
Advanced Material Choices
The NB24 Chronograph continues to push boundaries with material choices. They include:
- AeroCarbon: a high-density aeronautic carbon fiber known for its extreme durability
- Grade 5 Titanium: boasts double resilience of steel as well as intricate finishing
Additionally, the third edition of the NB24 Chronograph also offers a vast assortment of interchangeable straps that ensures a style for every wrist.
A 7750 Chronograph Like No Other
Building on Concepto’s chronograph expertise, the 3rd edition of the NB24 Chrono is powered by a movement based on the trusted Valjoux 7750.
But this isn’t just any 7750. CODE41 has added its signature touch by relocating the chrono counters on the dial’s face, reimagining the bridges, and adding a dial-side peripheral winding rotor. The result is a fusion of trusted heritage and innovative redesign, delivering both reliability and novelty.
Reserved for a select few in the watchmaking realm, the peripheral weight is a significant feat of horological engineering. And while the X41 already showcased this feature, the NB24 takes it a step further by proudly displaying it on the dial side, a rare find in luxury timepieces without the exorbitant price tag.
NB24 Movement Specifications
The 7750 cam-driven chronograph’s specifications include:
- 48-Hour Power Reserve
- Stop Seconds Function (Hacking Seconds)
- 326 Components
- 35 Jewels
- Frequency of 28,8000 BPH (4 Hz)
- Precision of -5/+5 seconds per day
- Incabloc Shock Absorber
This customized movement will be visible through the front and back of the watch, both sides of which possess sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coatings.
Transparency at its Core: The TTO Label
If you’ve been collecting watches for any amount of time, you’ll know that the origin of the components inside your favorite timepieces remains shrouded in mystery. In contrast, CODE41 stands out from more established peers thanks to its unwavering dedication to transparency, epitomized by its TTO Label.
TTO, or Total Transparency on Origin, is more than a label for CODE41—it’s a philosophy. It’s the brand’s way of saying customers have a right to know the origins of every component in their watch.
Most luxury brands shroud their processes in mystery, often leaving enthusiasts to speculate about the origins of components or the true value of a watch. CODE41, on the other hand, proudly shares intricate details, including the costs of production, research, logistics, and even the margins they keep.
For the NB24 Chronograph, the TTO Label guarantees that every aspect of the watch – from the AeroCarbon or titanium case to the modified Valjoux 7750 movement – is presented with complete clarity.
Stratom Case & Orange Dial
In essence, the TTO Label goes beyond just a branding element. It embodies CODE41’s ongoing commitment to its community.
By prioritizing transparency, the brand not only elevates its creations but also fosters trust, ensuring that its loyal customers are always in the loop and assured of the authenticity and value of their investment.
The Official Launch Of The NB24 3rd Edition
