DESIGNED BY LAURENT AUBERSON
The V1 is intended as a tribute, in the form of mechanical art, to the preciousness of time. It boasts breathtaking world premieres, which allow the wearer to appreciate and experience time in an altogether different way.
The fundamental design vision for the V1 may appear simple, but its realization presented many technical difficulties. These were overcome by consciously creating the watch from the inside out. This process began with the movement, which shares its fully autonomous quality with time itself.
The dial incorporates design cues which are reminiscent of the classic bank vault door with its function of protecting the precious. The tonneau shaped case frames the V1 as a work of mechanical art in the same way that a priceless painting is presented and protected.
EXPERIENCE TIME IN A UNIQUE WAY
VAULT’s ambition extends beyond the making of fine timepieces to aspire to the creation of mechanical art which enables us to experience time in a new and innovative way. The evocative manner in which time is displayed and the excitingly unique nature of the interaction between watch and wearer constitute nothing less than a celebration of time itself and our enjoyment of every minute of it through a personally commissioned V1.
