Swiss brand CODE41 is working on an ultra-thin skeletonized desk clock/pocket watch that is light enough to fit in a jacket pocket.

CODE41’s founder, Claudio d’Amore, came up with the concept in 2009 while working as a watch designer, eventually coming back to it last year. The Mecascape’s ongoing development is now being guided by the brand’s own community of supporters and fans, with polls being taken on design choices and color schemes.

The 7mm thick rectangular case – reinforced by a titanium caseback – can sit in a purpose built stand to serve as a desk clock, that reveals almost every aspect of its mechanical movement, developed for CODE41 by movement specialist, Le Cercle des Horlogers.

The Mecascape displays hour, minute, small seconds – in a regulator format – and date, alongside an 8 Day power reserve indication, GMT display and the movement’s balance wheel.

The Mecascape’s scale and multipurpose format is reminiscent of URWERK’s UR-1001 Titan pocket watch from 2015 that was designed to be worn on a chain but was later adapted for the wrist, although this new watch looks to be considerably smaller from the renders available.

Preorders are set to open in November as the brand is still awaiting the first prototype, but you can follow the development of the project at CODE41.

Elsewhere in watches, TAG Heuer drops summer-ready GMT-equiped Aquaracer Professional 300.
