The claim “we make the best safes and vaults in the world” might sound like just marketing hyperbole, but we at Brown Safe Manufacturing strive to prove that statement every day. As a family-run operation, we take the utmost pride in each and every safe and vault door we manufacture. Every safe we produce carries a 50-year warranty. This covers the entire safe, including the lock, bolts, etc. It is a true 50-year warranty. If you have a problem with your safe, we want to hear about it, and we will make it right... period.

The bottom line is: you trusted us when you purchased one of our safes, our family name is on the front of each safe, and our family has made a steadfast commitment to manufacture an incredible product. Brown Safe remains a privately owned family business with Mr. Brown, his daughter Lynel, and son Tim all sharing the highs and lows of running day to day operations. Family values and American pride are found in abundance at Brown.

We hand-make each safe in our 65,000sq/ft headquarters in Vista, California. When we say that it is made in the USA we mean exactly that. We start with sheets of steel, wood, and leather, and our craftsman weld, stitch and plane those materials into a genuine one-of-a-kind piece of art. Our most recent product is called “The Signature Safe.” It is an attempt to tell a story of a time past and the values of that older time - a time when a person’s word was his bond, and integrity was counted upon.

Mr. Brown himself is a story, he embodies the spirit of the rugged individual, and reminds us how men of his ilk built this country into the place that we enjoy today. “During my two terms in Vietnam, I became proficient in fortification. After the war, fortification became my obsession. I earned my engineering degree in 1976 and have been designing and building safes for civilian and military use ever since.”

If you look around the safe-making industry these days you will be barraged with claims of security and quality that aren’t worth the air it takes to speak them. The companies to whom people look to provide security routinely lie and mislead to make a quick buck. We refuse to bow to the pressures of the industry to build with substandard materials, and substandard practices.

We have a long history in this industry, and have worked hard to build trust and a reputation for quality with our customers. If you were to tour US embassies all over the world you would find Brown Safe Vault doors. The US Military also calls on us to create secure rooms for their armories and secure document storage facilities. Brown is military and US-government strong.

This is our history, and the Brown Signature Safe embodies it. We start each Signature Safe with the same materials and construction that we would use in any military installation. This means plate steel walls and doors, fully welded, flat ground and smoothed. If the unit will get fire protection then the entire safe undergoes our proprietary fire cladding process. The walls of the safe are encased within 2 ½ inches of poured composite material comprised of a high pressure concrete based mixture, and the door of the safe receives a 2-inch layer of the same.

Once a safe is welded and cladded, it receives its paint. The procedure for painting any of our luxury safes is the same as a high end automobile would receive. Brown safe has experts that were recruited from the auto body industry to ensure a flawless, mirror finish on each safe. The paint is polished and buffed to a shine that has to be seen to be believed. Once the exterior framework is complete, our experts go to work on the interior. With the Signature safe that means dark stitched leather and ultrasuede. We created the feel of an old world men’s club where you would find hand crafted leather chairs and the scent of tobacco from humidors. The Signature is a simple classic with exquisite craftsmanship.

At the other end of the spectrum we have our ultra-modern Chronos line of safes. These safes will appeal to watch enthusiasts as they were purpose built to display and secure fine timepieces. The Chronos is available with automatic winders or static displays depending on the tastes and desires of the new owner.

The Chronos body and door are built from military grade ballistic steel capable of stopping repeated shots from a .50 caliber rifle. The locking bolts are made of 100% titanium. Yes, you heard right, titanium. The entire safe and interior drawers can be wrapped in carbon fibre, and drawers can be embellished with leather wrapped Damascus steel. It isn’t just the materials that are modern. Brown Safe uses state-of-the-art 3D software modeling to create forms and parts which are shaped and cut by laser cutters and CNC machines. If you can imagine it, Brown Safe can build it.

Just like the Signature safe embodies Brown Safe values of integrity and tradition, the Chronos lets the world know that Brown Safe is very much setting the standard for modern safe design. You will be in good company if you own one of these security masterpieces as the client list of Brown Safe reads like the VIP list to the Presidential inauguration ball. Foreign dignitaries, movie stars, CEOs of fortune 500 companies, and rock stars all enjoy the same distinction as Brown Safe owners.

Your obsession with and collection of fine timepieces deserves to be displayed and protected by a safe that was produced by folks who are just as obsessed with the pursuit of excellence as you are. Years of collecting and searching can be lost in an instant with one break in. Why not cut would-be thieves off at the pass with a towering statue of security which will also be a stunning conversation piece. Trust us that you won’t want to put this safe in the garage. You will want to show off this safe, of course, while retrieving one of your fine timepieces. brownsafe.com

    I think they badly misjudged the demographics for the average post exposure on this site.

    Safes are cool, I have two and plan to get a huge fireproof one for my office, but I truly cannot see ever thinking “hey! I need a combination humidor and watch safe with winders built into it that incorporates stuff other people will only see and appreciate if I am that douche who hosts parties and invites people to peer into my watch/humidor safe”

  • 200 Fathoms

    This is kind of hard to stomach.

    Maybe I’m just a poor chap….but who puts cigars in a safe? Not practical at all.

    If the Brown Safe client list reads like the VIP list of a presidential ball, then why do you place your ads here, and more importantly, why do you advertise at all? If Brown Safe is so popular amongst rock stars, CEOs, and movie stars, I really don’t see the need to spend money on advertising a product that is already extremely sought after by the upper classes.

    • Bill W

      Because Aaron Sigmond talked them into it (and took a consultant’s fee).

    What’s ultrasuede?

    Mechanical watches being what they are. With 24 watches on winders. By the time you’ve rotated your way through the collection; the watch will be so far off the right time you might as well have saved on the wear and left it unwound. Because you’ve still got to reset it when you put it on again.
    This is not to say winders aren’t useful. Its just questioning the practicality of 24 of them.

    Otherwise as usual, I can only wish the best for a small independent family business.

          Again I’m slow. It’s a total magical mystery why its taken me 12 hours to work the hell out of what every one is saying. Sheesh, best band ever and all that.

          • Berndt Norten

            Why don’t they do what they say? Say what they mean? One thing leads to another….?

      • I am the power reserve.

    • SuperStrapper

      Ultrasuede is a fancy term for synthetic microfiber. People pay lots more when you say ‘Ultrasuede’ though.

      • Bill W

        Similar to alcantara?

      • Lincolnshire Poacher

        Apparently when they are doing their sales pitch to potential customers there’s a drum roll before and after every time they mention UltraSuede.

        • SuperStrapper

          Be careful: they Bill per drumroll starting at the 3rd one. So if you have tem say it a few times you’ll get quite the invoice.

      • Alcantara – Italian ultra, ultra-suede. Actually a polyester material, but oh so nice. And it cleans up better than real leather suede (like the grime left by a Safe-Lite windshield installer in my custom M6’s champagne alcantara “A” pillar).

        • SuperStrapper

          As I’m sure you are aware, I would make straps from alcantara (and inventory a few colours) but I wouldn’t think to with ultrasuede.

          • And I still use the strap you made for me which uses Alcantara along with leather. Happy holidays Kris.

          • SuperStrapper

            Glad to hear they’re still holding up! I was going through some of my portfolio last week (coming up on a strapmaking anniversary and thinking of doing something to announce it/thank people) and looked over those straps. It was a fun project.

  • SuperStrapper

    I have a custom made fireproof safe room that was purpose built for my firearm collection and ammo/reloading stuff. I can go into it and sit on a settee to watch TV, enjoy a drink, go reload at my bench or field strip a rifle, and not even know the neighbourhood had been doused in napalm.

    Despite being bigger, ‘safer’ and more user friendly, I bet it cost 1/50 of one of these things do.

    • Shinytoys

      fireproof safe room ! That’s quite an awesome investment, and a deluxe feature in your home. Cheers !

      • SuperStrapper

        Funny that you call it an investment, which I do as well, but I assume that it will only make the place more difficult to sell, if I ever do.

        • Shinytoys

          you could be surprised and have it work in your favor. People hear the word safe room and gravitate toward a property like your’s.

    • Sheez Gagoo

      I have an m1 carbine, that I should probably put in a safe. And a SIG 550 that I never use and somewhere a Karabiner 31. A mess. Need one of these.

      • SuperStrapper

        If you don’t have any use for that K31, I’d love one…

        Incidentally, my favourite ammo pouches to use for ammo straps are for the K31. Those, I have lots of.

        • Sheez Gagoo

          They are dirt cheap here. Around $100-150. It was my grandfathers gun. He was waiting for the Nazis in the alps with it, but they never came. You can have any K31 but not this one. Tipp: When you take off the metal part of the stock, there`s sometimes a piece of paper with the name of the soldier. You can have the SIG 550, it`s still full auto. There was also an other gun, that used the same ammo like the K31 but I think you know. Here it`s called the Sturmgewehr 57. Also dirt cheap here.

          • SuperStrapper

            Not rare or expensive here either, I’ve just never gotten around to acquiring one despite my want. Same for a MAS but the k31 is much cooler. I did come close once on an amazing specimen with both bright rifling and gorgeous furnitue. Came with a pouch and oiler. Only thing it was missing was the soldier ID you mentioned and I stupidly passed on it. I just really want one with an ID, it’s such an interesting aspect of that rifle.

            On top of everything is my forever hardon for Long Branch mk4 Enfields. Currently awaiting delivery of my 8th one… it’s a virus.

  • DeepEye

    But, what if they steal the safe?

  • otaking241

    I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

  • smoothsweeper

    Regardless of whether this is the best avenue for advertising their high end safes, these guys make a wicked product. I’m having a blast browsing their website.

    I want their safe room with a round vault door. Seriously.

  • I fear that buying one of these would be a “Gift of the Magi” situation, as I’d have to sell my watch collection to be able to afford the model I really want.

    • Bill W

      Whatever you do, hold on to your gold. Keep only as much frankincense as you think you’ll need. And offload that myrrh.

          Too weird, I just heard that on one of my local classic rock stations….Love me some April Wine.

  • John William Salevurakis

    As alluded to elsewhere it seems pretty logical that most people who can afford one of these (and simultaneously afford to fill it with 30+ pieces worth spending that kind of money to protect) would really be better served with a custom “safe room” that could probably be made more secure and more comfortable for at least comparable money. Further, it doesnt matter how good one’s safe is if it can be torn out through a side wall of the house with a vehicle and chain. (have heard of this happening!) or otherwise removed. A “decent safe”, placed in a solid safe room, inside a home with reinforced doors and film on the windows, and protected by a monitored alarm is MUCH better than one amazingly great safe and little else.

      Cold War vaults can be transformed into perfect watch safe rooms

  • Marius

    The problem with keeping valuables such as expensive jewlerry/watches/cocaine at home is that they transform you and your family into targets and sitting ducks. Even if you have the best safe/safe room, what will you do if the burglars threaten you, or your family at gunpoint in an armed robbery? You will most likely open the safe/safe room.

    Remember: if the robbers shoot your wife that’s not really a problem as you can always find another one. However, if they steal your hard-earned cocaine, well, that IS a big problem, because replacing it will cost you deerly.

    • Roman

      Now I know what you do for a living.

      Never heard of a “grab” gun? Panic alarm on an alarm system? Concealed carry?

  • Grumpy Cat

    Does this thing have a drawer to cryogenically store your sperm deposits? If no, then I am not interested and would expect this feature for the price.

  • Pœrtöle DuFèr

    One of the pictures shows a Bell & Ross in the safe. Why would you bother? You could leave any Bell & Ross on the pavement by your drive all day long and no one would steal it. Not even the bin men would collect it. If anything, it would encourage other fools to leave their idiot watches beside yours.

    • Phil

      You’re looking at it all wrong. You hide your Bell & Ross watch inside the safe when you have friends over. That way you won’t have to explain to to them why you wasted so much money on a B&R.

  • frauss

    Mmmm, they start at $63K. That’s one less Patek this year.

  • But what if they’re hiding *inside* the safe?

  • cg

    Way over priced! You can get same protection from a high end gun safe and a local cabinet maker can outfit the interior in a tasteful way as I have done. If you want a room size safe you can get a big safe door in a frame to mount in reinforced concrete in the your basement. You also need to have a monitored alarm system installed in the safe. I am thinking of doing a room too. My safes are at capacity.
