The Story

In 1975 the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the "checkerboard design in which squares are alternated with letters G, also in square form" (as mentioned in the patent) which was then issued in 1978. The motif was later reintroduced for the Cruise 2018 collection.

As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
