At Basel World, Haute Time had the opportunity to get an inside look at Buben & Zörweg with the brand’s part owner and partner Harald Buben.
For anyone that owns watches, you know you need a good place to store them and Buben & Zörweg creates the most unique and luxurious ways to do so. At Basel World, Buben & Zörweg was showing off some of their newest pieces, one being a partnership with Aston Martin called the Aston Martin Object of Time One-77. This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen and a must-own for an Aston Martin lover with a watch collection.
The Time-One 77 comprises a long list of protection and storage measures including humidors, special drawers for watch-and jewelry-storage, four world clocks, time-mover watch winders, a high-security vault, a flying minute tourbillon timepiece and a sound system in which you can plug in your iPod. The Time One-77 costs just as much or more than the Aston Martin, and there is already a waiting list. Haute Living’s good friend John Simonian was one of the lucky owners who took this piece back to Los Angeles for his store Westime in Beverly Hills.
The next piece Harald Buben showed me was the Buben & Zörweg X-007 safe. It is truly a work of art made with only the finest materials including crocodile leather. For Basel World, they added a digital clock on top, which is a little bit different then their tourbillon clocks on most of their products. It is fully customizable, so you can choose the color and materials to match the decor of your home.
We also took a look at a piece called the Titan High Security Safe. On the top of the safe lie two secret compartments that can be customized with anything you want, including storing jewelry, cigars and beyond. In the idle of the safe, there is a place for a MP-3 Player and in the front is a secret code panel, which allows entry into the safe. The safe can hold up to 36 watches in 2 separate compartments. In case there are attacks on this safe, the integrated alarm system will alert you. This incredible piece retails for around $400,000
