Concept: Creating mechanical art that extends beyond timekeeping to the nature of time itself
EACH WATCH IS CHARACTERISED BY ITS INDIVIDUALITY
Courtesy of its distinctive method of operation, the watch displays a different face whenever the time is reset, thereby enabling each owner of a Vault watch to wear a timepiece which is unique and individual.
THE WATCH MOVEMENT IS AUTONOMOUS
The watch is set by rotating the complete movement.
THE WATCH DIAL IS ROTATABLE
This is the only watch to utilise the ground-breaking HOUR GEAR TRANSMISSION (HGT), with its uniquely rotating dial, to indicate the hours.
THE WAY IN WHICH THE TIME IS DISPLAYED IS NOVEL
The innovative watch dial displays the time in a totally unconventional way because the numbers indicating the hours are moved to a different position whenever the time is reset.
THE TIME IS SET IN AN ENTIRELY UNIQUE WAY
The hours and minutes are set separately by rotating first the watch movement and then the watch dial in a unique way.
THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE STRONG ROOM IS USED IN AN INTRIGUING WAY
Each VAULT watch shares fundamental traits with a bank vault time lock. Subtly incorporating our creative technical innovations, VAULT pay homage to the superb design of the classic strong room door.
Bespoke mechanical art built upon request. The first step in commissioning a new VAULT V1 is choice – and we offer many options when it comes to your personal preference for case material, strap and colour combinations. We work together with you from concept to completion of your mechanical art.
