Have you ever thought to yourself that your luxury watch collection just wasn’t well protected enough? Maybe your safe isn’t as high tech as you’d like, or you’re running out of winders, or there’s no bullet-proof glass? What’s the point of a safe without bullet-proof glass? For timepiece aficionados that live for the best and most exclusive watches money can buy, storage and security options can be just as important as the collection itself, which is why when we saw the bespoke safes at Buben & Zorweg we knew we had something special on our hands.
For over 20 years the brand has been creating custom luxury safes that combine everything from humidors and bars to watch winders and tourbillion clocks. Their bespoke designs have been built inside homes, yachts, palaces and they have worked with everyone from Aston Martin to international heads of state. With over 25 in-shop boutiques and seven stores, the brand has a presence in over 100 countries around the globe. They have designed everything from inconspicuous, in-wall pieces to grand glass menageries that are the focal point of a room.
And when they say bespoke designs, they truly mean it. For one particular Marvel fan in Singapore they even designed an Ironman-inspired safe that took over 2 years and 4,000 man hours to complete. And as of this year they have started making the Private Museum, a new safe that offers a way to display art, or any other precious object, along with a watch collection. Of course, all of these custom designs come with the same amount of protection as their more traditional safes like armored glass, biometric fingerprint system and invisible infrared grid. And they will do almost anything to make your safe design, construction and installation as smooth as possible for you—including keeping the location of your home a secret from the company’s installation crew as they did for one particularly paranoid NYC billionaire.
