With success – as within a few years, since their first introduction of their safe collection, the company became the market leader in luxury safes.


In 1995, while still studying, Harald Buben and Christian Zörweg founded the company BUBEN&ZÖRWEG, which initially specialised in the manufacture of luxury watch boxes and watch winders. Inspired by their customers’ passion for the world’s most exceptional watches and driven by the desire to offer the best possible and highest quality solution, both of them succeeded, through years of research and development work with their specialists, in pioneering the field of mechanical wristwatches with automatic winding. In 1998, the company presented the TIME MOVER® technology. An electronic module control system that allows several watches to be wound simultaneously. The world’s first watch winder was born.


Since then the collection increased including a curated range of safes and built-in safe solutions as well as watch winders and of multifunctional presentation objects. Each with various selection options in terms of size, function, material and colour to display watches, jewellery and collectables in private residences, penthouses, yachts and were even indispensable for equipping even second and third private residences around the world. In order to enjoy ones most precious possessions and collections closely, the company enjoys great confidence of its customers and crafts very personal masterpieces which are often part of their clients’ most private rooms such as bedrooms, integrated parts in walk-in-wardrobes, collector and lounge rooms up to the most exclusive collector garages creating very individual, fascinating but most of all very private intimate presentation Refugio.

Enhanced with state-of-the-art technologies, unique and suspense creating designs and manufactured with the finest materials for exquisite interior and exterior, the company offers its client’s highest excellence of German engineering combined with timeless beauty and surprising effects. Each BUBEN&ZORWEG safe is handcrafted and hand-assembled at their manufactory near Stuttgart, where design and high-tech, craftsmanship and ingenuity have always come together – the heart of Germany‘s premium brands in the German car industry.

Therefore it is imperative that all safes made by BUBEN&ZORWEG are of course VdS certified.


The ICON among the BUBEN&ZORWEG safe collection is for sure the ORION. And this not only visually but also haptically. The Orion collection is made of finest Italian Nappa leather and combines a high degree of holistic craftsmanship and endless individualisation possibilities for safes that, up to then, were considered impossible.


It is fascinating to realize that below the decorative elegantly structured and very iconic square pattern of the Orion’s precious leather there is a hard core of a safe equipped with the latest German safety technology and certification which reliably protects value treasures. The surface is refined by finest handmade seems in selectable colours on the door and enhanced by hand-polished stainless-steel components like the safe opening handle which is crowned by a hand-positioned mother-of-pearl insert. The door openings are engineered with perfection to capture every reflection of light. They are technical master strokes with state-of-the art technology and offer selectable locking options like fingerprint openings.
