A COMMISSION WITH A MISSION
PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES FOR BESPOKE WATCHES
“For me, the V2+ RED CC represents everything we believe in. It’s the belief that a passionate team made up of the very best in the watchmaking industry and a visionary patron are capable of creating when they believe in the north star of the brand; the vision of creating the world’s most personal watches, which reminds us of how precious time is.”
Mark Schwarz, Founder VAULT
FIRST CARBON-CERAMIC COMPOSITE CASE
AN EXTREME COMPOSITE FOR AN EXTREME COMMISSION
What started with the industry’s first carbon-titanium composite cased watch earlier this year has led to our latest creation—the V2+ RED CC. Once again, we have teamed up with Fatcarbon to explore the limits of composites and create a visually striking and very light material.
As far as we know the V2+ RED CC is the world’s first watch featuring a carbon-ceramic composite case.
COMPOSITE BLOCK NR. 21
THE CHALLENGING ROAD TO SUCCESS
We knew from the start that our vision for this new composite was extremely ambitious and our gut feeling proved to be right. As our case is curved in both directions, we wanted to create a composite with layers that mimicked the curvature of the case. Our partner Fatcarbon had not only to rethink his composite manufacturing process but also produce special tooling to create the desired composite. Weeks of hand-laminating layer by layer of carbon and ceramic and numerous iterations later, composite block 21 was created, which became the case for the final watch.
