Döttling Fortress Safe

By Osheen Arakelian

Döttling is considered one of the safest luxury safes in the world, and not just the safest, but the most beautifully presented as well. It comes ready to be connected to a burglar alarm and includes a “silent alarm” function and is proven and tested for insurance coverage of up to $1 million dollars US. The Fortress Safe has been designed so that the interior is unbelievably versatile and can cater for all your luxury items not just watches.


Included in the Fortress safe are eight watch winders specially designed and engineered with each winder individually controlled to an infinite number of rotations. It is also possible to set the direction of the rotation of the winder – left, right, or oscillating, whatever your heart desires, the Fortress safe can do.


Also included inside the safe is a built in humidor made using Spanish cedar that comes with a built humidifier. A hygrometer and a barometer, both from Wempe, stylishly provide all the information that you need to keep your cigars nice and fresh ready to smoke at the drop of a hat. However, that’s not all with the upper section of the Fortress Safe also housing room for another 6 watches that are protected with the Colosimo two-door safe, also available from Doettling.


Available in a variety of colours and combinations also makes the Döttling Fortress Safe feel much more like a bespoke product than just another safe. For more info, please visit doettling.com
