Watches are not our profession they’re our passion, which is why we’ve opened The Vault, South Africa’s first retailer to sell top end Swiss luxury watches including pre-owned pieces (trade-ins welcome). The Vault sources, trades and buys quality, high value watches for our discerning clients who not only want to secure a timeless piece but also a lifetime investment.


Our store, situated in the upmarket Melrose Arch, offers a discreet setting, and is run by brothers David and Larry Mayers, who with over 50 years combined experience offer client’s invaluable knowledge and guidance when it comes to purchasing, evaluating and trading these valuable timepieces. But we don’t need to speak to our credibility. Our stock does that for itself.


In addition to our impressive collection of watches,, the Vault also stocks the exclusive Caracalla range . The deluxe leather goods are designed to be practical and timeless. Each item is hand-made in Italy to precise and exacting standards by the best craftsmen and made of the highest quality vegetable-tanned, through-dyed, Italian leather.


Furthermore, The Vault offers discerning art collectors an array of one off art pieces created by Alex Marmarellis, renowned National School of Arts graduate, who creates refreshing pop art of top icons of our time. Alex has captured the market by offering personally commissioned pieces to our clients.


Another unique offering from The Vault is the array of men’s bracelets from the likes of Northskull London and ALX. From luxe leather to natural stones to high-shine metals, our bracelets are the perfect add-on to any outfit for a stylish look. Take your pick from charm bracelets to skull bracelets, or a bangle for an ultra-sleek statement.
