  • Catalogue Essay

    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 creating what is today contemporary 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.

    Roth immediately created an unmistakable signature design DNA with the ellipsocurvex case shape, hands with pointed tips and dials with a horizontal or Clous de Paris guilloché pattern.

    Launched in the early 1990s, the present monopusher chronograph uses a vintage Lemania 15CHT or 2220 ebauche from the 1930s. Only 52 were made, 16 in platinum and 36 in yellow gold like the present example. 10 extra movements were later discovered and cased but can be differentiated with the original models as they featured a swan neck regulator.
