Dubbed 'the smallest high security safe in the world', this is a 1:13 scale homage to the classic vaults Döttling are known for. It's petite frame (28 x 27 x 27cm) belies it's obese credentials - it weighs in at a hefty 66lbs, or 30kg. For a safe though, that's an advantage. Yet the moniker of 'Colosimo' is unrelated to the colossal size; it's actually from the early 20th century bank robber - Jim Colosimo.
That's not to say it doesn't fulfill it's key role of keeping your time-piece secure; it most certainly does. It has the same armored protection and high grade German steel as it's bigger Döttling brothers. Plus there's the 16 radially arranged locking bolts and 32 gilged cogs which bolt the door closed.
It's these cogs and bolts which are the most fascinating part of this unit and may be the reason you keep it open more than closed.
Nevertheless, while the safe might be impressive, the real question here is the winder itself. Should you opt for the winder over the humidor you will receive a MotionTech Engineering (MTE) winder from OriginTimes (the outfit that brought us this marvel). This ensures a high build quality and quiet motor (not that it will matter inside this unit).
There's mains power as well battery, which is good to know. However, at this price point it probably isn't a deciding factor. If you're ready to drop $23,800 on a miniature security system for your timepiece then you probably have a very expensive watch. In fact, you probably have many. And that leads to the one plausible weakness in this piece - it can only hold one watch.
