TIME IS EXTREMELY PRECIOUS, NO ONE CAN CONTROL IT AND EVERYONE HAS A UNIQUE PERCEPTION OF IT.

This is the philosophy which underpins the design and creation of each VAULT timepiece.

TIME IS PRECIOUS

Each VAULT watch is designed and constructed to evoke the idea of a bank safe. The aesthetics of each VAULT watch reflect our belief that time is precious.

 

The delightful outcome is a timepiece crafted to a high standard that captures some of the design elements of a classic bank safe.

TIME IS DYNAMIC

The innovative movement design found within a VAULT watch represents our philosophy that time is in continuous motion, present for only a moment before fading into memory. Time is beyond human control.

This unique mechanism is a homage to a revolutionary invention of the 19th century – the time lock safe.

The time lock makes use of several watch movements to ensure that the door of a bank strong room can be opened only at specific times. Once the time lock is set, its mechanism cannot be controlled externally.

This is exactly like the movement in a VAULT watch which is completely autonomous, thereby reminding us that time cannot be controlled.

TIME IS UNIQUE

All human beings perceive time in their own unique way and indeed the same human will experience time differently according to the circumstances. Our perception of Time is, therefore, unique to each and every one of us and the appearance of VAULT watches has been designed to reflect this final part of our philosophy.

By virtue of the way in which the time is set and the mechanism moves, each VAULT timepiece will show the same time in a unique way – a constant reminder that each of us, as well as our perception of time itself, is unique.
