Germany-based luxury safe manufacturer company Dottling recently unveiled its Opus collection of luxury watch safes. As we used to when their safes in question, at first glance, they look like a valuable pieces of furniture. But, inside, however, state-of-the-art technology is integrated – invisible to the eye of an observer. The Opus 1, for example, with its high-gloss finish in grand piano quality and gilded decorative elements, clearly orients itself on the design of an antique armoire in the historicist style.
All the distinguishing features that indicate a safe have been cleverly hidden – for instance, the specially developed door mechanism, which completely conceals the hinges. This even applies to the console of the electronic high-security lock, which is integrated behind a tiny secret flap in one of the decorative elements.
Once the owner opens the heavy doors, either by means of a finger scan or by entering the security code, the gaze is drawn to the interior, magnificently outfitted in poplar burl veneer and Alcantara. Here, 40 precision watch winders, 12 drawers and two extendable tables offer enough room for up to 250 valuable watches.
And since the luxury safe corresponds to VdS class 4, these valuables are always protected against unauthorized access. Twelve gilded bolts made of specially hardened steel lock the doors when closed like a fortress. Unlike normal safes, a multi-shell construction guarantees a resistance that is up to six times higher. And naturally, the Opus 1 can also be connected to an alarm system. The built-in seismic microphone records even the smallest vibrations and then immediately triggers an alarm.
