Doettling presents the world’s first travel safe: The Guardian


The Guardian provides unique protection for up to six watches, jewelry, cash, or important documents.

The centerpiece of the Guardian is the multi-walled, high-security cylinder built into the leather, which was developed in-house at Döttling. This consists of a range of high-tech materials, which have been interlocked in a top-secret composition. The carbide component is nearly as hard as a diamond and destroys tools such as drills or saws attempting to attack the Guardian. Several layers of highly tear-proof and cut-resistant aramid carbon-fiber fabric, which is also used in bulletproof vests, also prevent drilling or sawing. The outermost and innermost layers of the high-security cylinder are made of polycarbonate. This material is also used for anti-riot shields and helmet visors. It makes the Guardian extremely impact-resistant, ensuring that it cannot be destroyed, even with the largest sledgehammers. A high-security safe door is integrated into one end of the cylinder, which is also reinforced with aramid carbon-fiber fabric. This door can only be opened with a three-digit code. When this code is entered correctly, the lock, consisting of four high-gloss polished steel bars, opens.

In short: in a closed state, the Guardian can only be opened with massive force and a lot of time – time that is not available, as the Guardian is also equipped with a GPS tracking device, and can thus be precisely located around the globe.

As for the exterior of the Guardian, the same applies here as for all Döttling products: there are virtually no limits set to individuality.

For example, the handle brackets made of high-gloss polished stainless steel can be engraved. Any conceivable variation in fabric or leather is also possible for the cover. This ensures that the Guardian is not recognized as a “travel safe” – providing a further plus in terms of security.

The Döttling Guardian can be carried with a handle or shoulder strap. Thanks to its compact design of just 35 cm length and 13.5 cm diameter, it can also be placed in a suitcase. And despite its high-security concept, it only weighs about 4 kg. This makes it a true featherweight, allowing one to travel unencumbered in every respect.
