Doettling Colosimo Double Wing Inspired by the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing”
Upholding the traditional locksmith’s craft in the style of Royal Prussian smiths since 1919, the bespoke German luxury safe manufacturer, Döttling, has over the times delivered a range of unmistakable and unique handcrafted masterpieces like the safe for the $2.5 million Jaeger-LeCoultre watch set, the Colosimo, the iPad controlled Hublot Morphosis safe, and the Colosimo leather and spikes edition, to name a few. Now, taking inspiration and motivation from the icon and landmark of automotive construction, the Mercedes Benz 300 SL, better known as the ‘Gullwing’, the designer duo Markus Döttling & Andreas K. Schlittenhardt of Doettling, proudly presents yet another masterpiece, the Colosimo Double Wing, an exquisite watch case that draws ideas from the vehicle that was the perfect symbiosis of consummate design and fascinating technology.
Colosimo Double Wing, the new exotic safe features an integrated Wempe Zeitmeister clock placed in the center of the two compartments, just as found on the dashboard of the Mercedes 300 SL. Further, the covers as well as the toggle switches crafted out of the most impeccable red calf-leather are a delightful homage to the stunning interiors of the automotive legend born back in year 1954.
The nostalgic details are another characteristic that the Colosimo Double Wing proudly shares with the 1954 Mercedes Gullwing. In terms of technology, the safe also sets brilliant standards. After entering the personal three-digit lock code, the highly intricate locking mechanism opens, resulting in the door opening, revealing the two precision rotors, each of which elegantly moves the three exquisite clocks. In a sense, it can also be said that Colosimo Double Wing uniquely bridges tradition and innovation, which are notably the very best requirements to become a legend itself.
Another eye-catching and probably one of the coolest cash box in the world is the Dr. Scrooge’s money bin, boasting a hand-painted artwork created by YearZero from London.
Interestingly, it’s the only one safe, which makes it truly unique.
