Buben & Zor­weg Il­lu­sion

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Robb Col­lec­tions - By WEI-YU WANG

For a stor­age so­lu­tion that matches the crafts­man­ship of a fine wrist­watch col­lec­tion, Buben & Zor­weg is the pre­mier choice. Much of its hand­crafted reper­toire con­sists of com­plex, cab­i­net-sized pieces, but the Il­lu­sion watch safe (RM78,364) is a bit of an out­lier.

When closed, it is a leather­wrapped bar­rel 360mm in di­am­e­ter and 304mm high, meant to sit on a counter or ta­ble. Its smooth curves lend it a fu­tur­is­tic air, and its op­er­a­tion does noth­ing to dis­abuse that no­tion: ac­ti­vate the fin­ger­print sen­sor and the in­ter­nal draw­ers rise up smoothly and silently — and just slowly enough to make each use an oc­ca­sion. A ring of LED lights un­der the top lip com­plete the sci-fi pic­ture. The plush, lined draw­ers are suit­able for any­thing pre­cious; other than watches, jew­ellery, keys or wal­lets are quite at home as well. It is also cus­tomis­able with up to four watch winders. www.buben-zor­weg.com ≠
