FrontRunners: Keeping Watch

    The Brown Safe Manufacturing Chronos (www.brownsafe.com) is the first watch-specific line of safes from the California company. Plated in military-grade ballistic steel and outfitted with four-way solid titanium locking bolts and a tungsten carbide hard plate, Chronos units can be custom-ordered to include as many as 32 automatic winders, a GPS antitheft system, and carbon-fiber detailing. Fingerprints or codes can be used to unlock the safes, and a time-lock feature can prevent any access to the safe’s contents until a designated time. The price for a standard, 4-foot-tall model begins at $58,750.
