    Pure Luxury: Dottling Luxury Safes

    Balancing traditional handcraftsmanship with modern or customised design is the forte of this 97-year-old German firm. Its luxury safes range from the classic to the creative: Dottling has made pieces inspired by the works of German-American architect Lud wig Mies van der Rohe and collaborated with fashion doyen Karl Lagerfeld on a limited-edition watch and jewellery safe.

    In 2009, Dottling also produced for Jaeger-LeCoultre a limited-edition safe that accompanies a set of three ultra-high-complication watches: the Hybris Mechanica a Grande Sonnerie, Hybris Mechanica a Gyrotourbillon, and Hybris Mechanica a Triptyque.
