Legends safe no. 159 is a masterpiece of unsurpassed opulence. It was built by the firm Meinecke in 1873 in what is today Wroclaw, Poland. Its huge size and the evident splendor of the 24-karat gold-plated fixtures and fittings testify to the flourishing economy of the once fifth-largest city in the German Empire. In appearance, the safe is typical for the Wilhelminian age, yet its size is unusual. Inside it, we find thirty-two automatic watch winders, six jewelry compartments with a number of inserts for rings and colliers and a larger compartment for securities and documents. 1873 The more than one-ton piece is lacquered all over with a black concert grand finish and, in addition to the visible system of bolts on the inner doors, has concealed locking mechanisms integrated within the door paneling. The safe fulfills the highest demands for security, can be connected to an alarm system and has been fitted with the electronic Döttling locking system. The retrofitted security engineering is entirely hidden so that it doesn’t impair the original aesthetic of the safe. The unit used to enter the safety code is also completely concealed.
The number and availability of high-quality antique safes are exceedingly limited, but there are no limits to the interior fittings of a Legends safe. Whether fitted with humidors, cocktail bars, jewelry compartments, watch winders, collector cabinets, or lockable drawers, the only premise is your own personal passion.
We realize every well-conceived fitment variation with the aid of state-of-the-art technologies and the finest craftsmanship.
All of the Legends safes by Döttling are alike in only one aspect: they are the grand expression of a lifestyle reserved for only a few.
