German safemaker Döttling just unveiled the GrandCircle, a two meter high, EUR195,000 safe to show watches and other expensive objects. This is certainly more beautiful than most of the competition which is angular and boxy. In fact this might even be a beautiful piece of furniture, in terms of design and not just expensive materials. That being said the GrandCircle is clad in expensive materials, including galuchat, Alcantara and wood veneer. It is not just a ultra-luxe storage closet though. In addition to the 52 watch winders, it has a clock made by independent clockmaker Mattias Naeschke. The pendulum clock indicates the full calendar and has a 30 day power reserve. The base of the GrandCircle includes a small hifi set as well as a fire-resistant safe. This is a limited edition of 20 pieces. Of course for those who want more Döttling can outfit an entire room. – SJX
