  • Catalogue Essay

    Becoming an icon in the world of watch collecting, the double ellipse-cased wristwatch is simply, Daniel Roth. Born during the beginnings of the golden era of independent watchmaking, Roth was indeed one of the very first watchmakers to start his own brand in 1988. With a distinctive approach to his creations, collectors with a keen eye may witness similarities between Roth and Breguet timepieces. Having had an illustrious career and training in Audemars Piguet as well as being a part of the resuscitation of Breguet, Roth timepieces are reflective of his experiences prior to creating his own timepieces under his own name.

    The present Daniel Roth in white gold belongs to a limited edition series of 50 pieces made in 2000 to commemorate the new millennium prior to the sale to Bulgari. Featuring the firm’s distinctive double ellipse case and a guilloche dial with Roman numerals and blued stainless steel hands, the aesthetics are familiar. Equipped with moon phases and a power reserve indication of up to 42 hours, the sapphire display caseback features Roth’s manual tonneau-shaped cal. DR 900. Numbered 50 of a limited edition of 50 pieces, the present example is the last ever to leave its manufacture. Preserved in excellent overall condition, this rare Roth wristwatch is one to keep a closer eye on.
