The Döttling Colosimo “Double Wing” is inspired by the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, better known as the “Gullwing”.
A symbiosis of fascinating technology and consummate design, the the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing was far ahead of its time on both counts.
Today, 60 years after the first 300 SL left the factory, the Döttling Colosimo Double Wing arrives on the scene, its design entirely based on the iconic automotive model.
Weighing around 180 kilograms the cylindrical safe sports an inner tube that turns inside of the outer shell, with two set of winders that can hold up to 42 watches.
German safe maker Döttling has created a new luxury safe called “The GrandCircle“, a vault including multiple components like watch winders, a bar, a cigar humidor, a pendulum clock and a high-end sound system.
The safe is composed of high-gloss lacquered wood varieties, the finest stingray tail skin, Alcantara, and rhodium-plated metal components.
The GrandCircle has a total of 52 individually controlled watch winders enclosing it’s center of attraction: a limited, handmade Naeschke pendulum clock with power reserve mechanism that has six ruby bearings.
High-end German safe maker Dottling has created This Colosimo watch safe, named after Jim Colosimo, who was a bank robber in the early 20th century.
The Dottling Colosimo is a 1:13 scale model of the bank vault. The safe weighs 66 pounds (30 kg) and is about 11 inches wide.
The Colosimo is fully functional just like the vaults itâ€™s designed after and features 16 radially arranged locking bolts and 32 gilged cogs.
Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with German luxury safe maker Dottling to create the world’s most expensive personal safe, costing $339,000, WWD reports.
Just under six-feet tall and less than a foot deep, the steel body, sheathed in high-gloss chrome-plated aluminum, looks like an impregnable monolith.
But when activated by the owner, two doors butterfly open to reveal interior cabinets containing watch winders and jewelry drawers.
Döttling combines finest craftsmanship and centuries of experience with superior materials and design.
The results are one-of-a-kind luxury safes and vaults. they are each a work of art, crafted over a period of three to six months with the finest materials.
