FrontRunners: Watch and See

The German-made Buben & Zörweg Grand Collector Inbuilt (www.buben-zorweg.com) watch cabinet is equipped with an array of locks and other security devices, but it also employs an unusual deterrent to pilferage: invisibility. The door is a two-way mirror that conceals the cabinet’s contents. Collectors can display their watches by turning on the cabinet’s remotely controlled LED backlights, which make the mirror transparent. The layout of the Grand Collector (priced from $86,500 when equipped with the two-way mirror door) is customizable; the standard model includes 26 watch winders, three drawers, a safe, and a large, built-in clock.
