Limited Edition: Damascus Steel
Our most custom Chronos to date pays homage to the legendary bladesmiths and master craftsmen who created Damascus steel to form their exquisite works of functional art.
A master swordmaker’s ability to transform raw steel into shining patterns that undulate and dance across the blade is the stuff of legends, and although the true origins of Damascus steel are unknown, the forging process that creates the distinctive patterned steel was developed to make their swords stronger, lighter, more flexible, and give them a greater ability to hold an edge.
We envision bladesmiths heaving heavy hammers to bind different metals together. Turning them and folding them, smashing away until they are forged into one and the desired effect achieved. Finally completing the painstaking process by cutting away and shaping the Damascus until the final form is revealed.
We admire these legendary craftsmen and are inspired by their methods, after all transforming steel into highly functional objects of desire is our aim as well. The Limited Edition Damascus Chronos isn’t only a tribute to this legendary metal, but the master bladesmiths who forged it into perfect blades, as we aim for the same degree of precision, refinement and permanency in every safe we create.
This limited run of ten Chronos luxury watch safes retains the high-security and advanced technology the Chronos Series has become known for, with the added refinement of completely unique Damascus details on each special edition. Luxurious black leather lines the interior of the safe to provide a stunning backdrop and contrast to the Damascus accents, while the exterior is wrapped in a deep metallic gray finish polished to a high gloss. The result is dark, brooding, and maybe even slightly sinister, but certainly a watch safe unlike any other.
* Fire and burglary protection ratings are consistent for both safe sizes, as is the selection of available features.
