VAULT is proud to announce another unique addition to the V1 collection: The V1+ CTi.

Time is a personal matter. Even more so your own timepiece that treasures the hours and minutes of your day. That's why customisation has always been part of VAULT's core mission. But this time, we have taken it to another level. Imagine you're able to choose not just the colours engravings and materials, but commission a bespoke case material. Sounds unbelievable? We know. But we made it happen.

The V1+ CTi is characterised by a unique connection of material: carbon and titanium. The carbon titanium composite is one-of-a-kind and has been developed specifically for VAULT. We pursued this idea together with a client. Our goal was to unite the unique features of both materials. As far as we know, no watchmaker has used a composite of carbon and titanium to create a case before.

Time is precious. That's why VAULT doesn't play around when it comes to time. We take as much time as needed for the things we value. Case in point is our new V1+ CTi. The handmade manufacture of our newest model has been the most complex so far.

Our signature carbon titanium composite was developed by our partner Fatcarbon. The very thin pre-preg carbon layers and fine titanium powder were alternately hand-layered and baked under pressure to form a solid piece of material.

RGB X-Tech shaped this thrilling yet complex material into our watch case. As both components, carbon and titanium, make different demands to the manufacturing, finding the right tool was crucial. A specialised CNC milling machine did the job. So far so good. But do you know how long that took? A mesmerising 32 hours of machine running time!

To finish off the V1+ CTi, we optimised the design, reengineered the hour gear transmission and teamed up with the talented watchmaker Marc Jenni. He developed a new rotor that is lighter and increases the wearing comfort.

Good things take time. The VAULT V1+ CTi characterises that more than any model has ever before. Going from a simple idea to our signature connection of material and finally to a brand-new watch took several hands and a lot of time. That's what we do at VAULT: We take our time and create novelties for you.
