  • Catalogue Essay

    Born to be a horological pioneer, Daniel Roth is considered today one of the most brilliant watchmakers of his generation. Originally starting at Audemars Piguet he later went on to work for Breguet where he restored the brand’s former horological importance and presence in the midst of the quartz crisis. After fourteen years of self development and studies within Breguet, in 1987 Daniel Roth started his eponymous brand directly inspired by Abraham-Louis Breguet’s pocket watches.

    Immediately imposing and carving his personal design language, most notably the ellipsocurvex case shape, hands with pointed tips and dials with a horizontal or Clous de Paris guilloché patterns, he was one the earliest master watchmakers who decided to branch out and go "independent" with his vision.

    This manual-wind Daniel Roth reference BB 2147 features sharply executed pinstripe guilloché patterns and lance-shaped hands. Extremely comfortable on the wrist, inside beats the finely-finished and famous Lemania 2320 or CH-27 movement. Roth was no stranger to fine Lemania movements as whilst being a watchmaker for Breguet he helped develop and refine many Lemania calibers.

    Preserved in excellent overall condition, the timepiece is further accompanied by the its Certificate of Origin and Ownership, as well as its Club Daniel Roth paperwork. A true testimony to the watchmaker’s heritage and savoir-faire, the present timepiece is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
