It used to be that in-home safes were plain strongboxes set into a wall or perhaps hidden behind a painting. German firm Buben & Zorweg, which specializes in timepiece safes, had the genius to transform the lowly strongbox into fine furniture, meant to be seen and admired. Using high design, luxury materials and James Bond-like gadgetry, the company creates cases that are every bit as artful and eye-catching as the treasures they contain.
The timepiece storage systems of Buben & Zorweg range from desktop models to watch-winding wardrobes that stand five feet tall. All offer a spectacular blend of functionality and style. They incorporate materials such as Nappa leather, exotic woods, carbon fiber, high-sheen lacquer and even bulletproof, two-way mirrored glass (at the touch of a button, the half-inch-thick glass goes from mirrored to transparent, revealing the timepieces inside).
The perfect marriage between fashion and functionality, many safes include automatic watch-winders, which keep an entire watch collection ready-to-wear. Working as both beautiful pieces of furniture and elegant conversation pieces, many of the models incorporate additional functions such as a humidor, bar, weather station, and music system. What better way to display an impressive timepiece collection than in a secure piece of furniture so intriguing it can become the focal point of a room?
Exclusive to only 13 retailers in the U.S., Buben & Zorweg is now available at Razny Jewelers. Whether you’re looking to house several watches or 100 in ultimate style, if you subscribe to the famous quote by Oscar Wilde, “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best,” then you will be drawn to Buben & Zorweg.
