WHEN FRIENDS AIM FOR THE STARS
Created in partnership between VAULT and RC Tritec, the new VAULT V2+ RCT is set to have a grand launch on Nov 26, 2021. A unique partnership that has led to an extraordinary bespoke timepiece showcasing the expertise of the two Swiss brands.
The V2+ RCT is the latest creation from Zurich-based Swiss bespoke watch brand VAULT. It features a dark matter carbon composite case dropping the weight of the watch to only 65grams making it the lightest watch they have created to date. The collaboration with RC Tritec has helped produce a masterpiece with unique luminous materials that up the ante functionally and aesthetically.
Mark Schwarz, the founder of VAULT, was quoted as saying, “My friend Albert Zeller and I don’t like to just stick to what has been done in the past. We wanted to challenge the status quo, innovate, and explore new directions. We are very upbeat about this unique timepiece and are hopeful of seeing a great response from our customers and fans worldwide.”
The V2+ RCT features the iconic titanium hour disc with its signature honeycomb structure infused with Swiss Super-LumiNova, which lights up the disc and the underlying movement. The watch comes with glowing 3D hour numerals and a minute hand indicator made of Lumicast. Contributing to the overall lightness of the VAULT is the new super leggera rotor which has been completely redesigned from the ground up. Due to the complexity of the project and the required R&D, the watch took well over a year from start to completion.
The V2+ RCT is the story of two friends who came together to create a new chapter in the history of VAULT and, by doing so, once again pushed the boundaries and challenged the status quo in the world of watchmaking.
