  • Catalogue Essay

    Born to be a horological pioneer, Daniel Roth is considered today one of the most brilliant watchmakers of his generation. The importance of Daniel Roth in today’s success of independent watchmaking cannot be underscored enough. By creating his eponymous brand in 1987 after having worked at Audemars Piguet and Breguet, he was one the earliest master watchmakers who decided to go independent and put his vision and talent in a watch with his name on the dial.

    Upon launch of his brand, Roth immediately established his personal design language, the most obvious being the unusual ellipsocurvex shape, hands with pointed tips and dials with guilloché patterns (either Clous de Paris or horizontal stripes)

    The present early reference 2147 from 1992, the iconic Lemania 2320 also known as CH-27 movement that Roth refined and started reusing during his time at Breguet and used by other greats such as Patek Philippe for their references 5070, 3970 and 5970.

    This chronograph in pink gold with superbly attractive pink gold dial with hand guilloché vertical pattern will please collectors not only thanks to its ultimate rarity, good looks and use of iconic movement but also due to the fact that it represents a pioneering and audacious era that saw the rise of independent watchmaking.
