Hublot and Döttling work together on a legend
Together with our partner Hublot, we have realized an extraordinary project, which already today has the potential of turning into a legend – as it is inspired by the eponymous masterpiece of engineering art attributed to none other than Leonardo da Vinci. We have transferred the magnificent Renaissance model into the formal language of the current day, giving it a good deal of state-of-the-art technology along the way. The body of the Kryptex is made of black anodized aluminum. Even in a closed state, the crystal glass plate offers impressive insight into the interior, which is covered in the finest Alcantara. After the code has been entered and a delicate lever actuated, the Kryptex opens, revealing the high gloss-polished stainless steel bolts of the locking mechanism. With its pioneering blend of form and function, the Kryptex is equally ahead of its time as were the works of Leonardo da Vinci.
