Time is a silent force that cannot be overcome. BUBEN&ZORWEG have harnessed the powerful silence of time and shaped it into a design. The result: VANGUARD. Space and time. Space for time. Space to give your valuables a home that will withstand the tests of time. Fight the enemy of time, torpidity, with something that moves. The luxury of a long life with beautiful things.
