Döttling Guardian Travel Safe

Bespoke German safe maker Döttling unveils its latest creation, the Guardian.

The Guardian provides travel-ready protection for up to six watches, jewelry, cash, or important documents.  The Döttling Guardian can be carried with a handle or shoulder strap, and weights about 9 pounds.  Price is about $13,000 to $25,000, depending on customization choices.  If you got the money and the valuables, hey why not. Plenty of looks, on the jump.

According to Dottling:

The centerpiece of the Guardian is the multi-walled, high-security cylinder built into the leather, which was developed in-house at Döttling.  This consists of a range of high-tech materials, which have been interlocked in a top-secret composition. The carbide component is nearly as hard as a diamond and destroys tools such as drills or saws attempting to attack the Guardian. Several layers of highly tear-proof and cut-resistant aramid carbon-fiber fabric, which is also used in bulletproof vests, also prevent drilling or sawing. The outermost and innermost layers of the high-security cylinder are made of polycarbonate. This material is also used for anti-riot shields and helmet visors. It makes the Guardian extremely impact-resistant, ensuring that it cannot be destroyed, even with the largest sledgehammers. A high-security safe door is integrated into one end of the cylinder, which is also reinforced with aramid carbon-fiber fabric. This door can only be opened with a three-digit code. When this code is entered correctly, the lock, consisting of four high-gloss polished steel bars, opens.

In other words, if a thief does manage to steal the safe, he will need a lot of time to get into its contents.  The safe is also GPS equipped which would enable it to be tracked down before it was penetrated.  Or at least that’s the theory.

By the way, don’t miss my other reviews of Döttling safes, such as the Colosimo, the Colosimo Double Wing, the Liberty Barcelona and the secure but whimsical Colosimo Pop art.
