Travelling comes doused in anxiety and many stressful moments that will have you reaching for the Valium faster than you can say “Is this strip search really necessary?” Thankfully, the Döttling safe manufactory in Maichingen has relieved us from one travel concern by developing the world’s first security luxury luggage – the Guardian.
Through the use of materials that are literally handcrafted, Döttling has been a purveyor of luxury products and has upheld the traditional locksmith craft of the Royal Prussian smiths for nearly a century. Every Döttling masterpiece is a unique specimen that utilizes both modern engineering and visual magnificence.
This stunning travel safe provides a unique protection of up to six watches, jewelry, cash, important documents or anything else the owner chooses. The center of the Guardian is a multi-walled, high-security cylinder that is developed at Döttling and is built into the leather. With a carbide component that is virtually as hard as a diamond and several layers of highly tear-proof and cut-resistant fabric (used in bulletproof vests) any tools that attempt to break in are destroyed. For the outermost and innermost layers of the Guardian one will find polycarbonate – a material that is also used for anti-riot shields and helmet visors – making the travel safe extremely impact-resistant.
The end of the cylinder holds the safe door which can only be opened with a three-digit code. Of course, with enough time and force, the Guardian could probably be opened without the code; however, the people at Döttling considered this, therefore they equipped the safe with a GPS tracking device ensuring that the thief doesn't have the luxury of time on their side.
As with all Döttling products, individuality is key. Handle brackets are made of stainless steel and can be engraved and the cover can be made in any variation of fabric or leather. Available with a shoulder strap the Guardian is also incredibly compact, just 37 cm in length and 13.5 cm in diameter.
While we can’t get rid of every taxing travel moment, why not ease your mind a bit with the Döttling Guardian? Trust us, your therapist will thank you.
