The V1+ RED GOLD was our first customer watch presented at Baselworld 2018.

2018

Launched at Baselworld 2018 the V1 BLACK STEEL was our first closed case back production watch.

Our signature carbon titanium composite was developed by our partner Fatcarbon. The very thin pre-preg carbon layers and fine titanium powder were alternately hand-layered and baked under pressure to form a solid piece of material.

The V1-X was the first drop from our art piece collection presented at the watchmakers club in London.

2019

At Baselworld 2019 we launched the worlds first carbon titanium composite cased watch the V1+ CTi.

The V1+ CTi also featured a redesigned case with sharper angles on the side of the case giving it a more dynamic appearance while also reducing weight.

The second release of our art piece collection. The V1-X BLACK STEEL was presented in London at the annual watchmakers club event.

The V1+ TITANIUM featured our upgraded case design and a new hour gear transmission x-mount.

VX was our testbed watch for the upcoming V2 series. It featured the first version of our grade 5 titanium hour disc.

SUPER LIGHT

51 GRAMS 

To finish off the V1+ CTi, we optimised the design, reengineered the hour gear transmission and teamed up with the talented watchmaker Marc Jenni. He developed a new rotor that is lighter and increases the wearing comfort.

Once again we have teamed up with RC Tritec to create the 5-minute markers and the minute hand stripe in a custom colour adding to the striking appearance of the V1+ CTi while enhancing the practical aspects.

FROM INCEPTION 2 COMPLETION

Good things take time. The VAULT V1+ CTi characterises that more than any model has ever before. Going from a simple idea to our signature connection of material and finally to a brand-new watch took several hands and a lot of time. That’s what we do at VAULT: We take our time and create novelties for you.
