When a visionary collector challenges the status quo
“The guiding vision of the V3+ ONYX was to create a sport-inspired watch, matching our collector’s lifestyle and thereby modifying a substantial part of the case, the strap, and the movement in the process. We are excited to unveil the ONYX after more than 12 months of hard work and dedication.”
Mark Schwarz, Founder VAULT
When sport meats stealth
THE V3+ ONYX case was redesigned from the ground up by our in-house designer Laurent Auberson to suit the lifestyle of our collector.
The grade 5 titanium case features the brand's first crown guard, designed in a way to provide protection for the crown while keeping the additional weight as low as possible.
Additionally, the case profile and the engraving plate inserts have received a sharper design to further cut weight and provide a more dynamic look while staying true to VAULT`s design DNA.

Our redesigned case required modifications to the V01+ automatic movement to ensure easy maintenance. Furthermore, the centre plate received a sandblasted finish while all gears were rhodium plated to suit the monochromatic look of the ONYX.
...then the sum of its changes
We go above and beyond to create the most personal watches possible. A good example is the V3+ ONYX which not only received a completely redesigned case but a new strap system consisting of a re-engineered nylon strap with a new laser-printed titanium insert for maximum comfort.
Based on the collector's lifestyle, the super leggera rotor has been slightly modified to increase winding efficiency.
ONYX has also received the same stunning 3D hour numerals, 5 Minute Markers and minute hand as debuted on the V2+ RCT.
