  • Catalogue Essay

    Garnering attention with its expressive and the now iconic double ellipse cased wristwatches, Daniel Roth timepieces have become highly popular amongst collectors radar in recent years. Creating a niche of its own with remarkable designs and intricate finishings, early creations by Roth has become harder and harder to come by today. Belonging to the early THG era (The Hour Glass Group), the present Daniel Roth signed chronograph is graced with the DNA of Roth’s signature features, even better, the remarkable works can be admire directly from the open-worked dial. Available in precious metal from platinum, pink, yellow and white gold, the model was paired with different coloured dials. Perhaps one of the most desirable option, the present white gold example is fitted with an exceptional salmon dial that provides great contrast. The depth is superbly displayed where the wearer can admire and enjoy the intricacies of the workings of the chronograph. In fact the movement has been inversed as for the column wheel and chronographic functions to be visible on the dial side rather than the caseback. With the recent announcement of the revival of the brand under LVMH management, collectors are once again excited for the possibilities from the brand starting from the new released Tourbillon Souscription. A great opportunity to acquire a rare and early wonderfully preserved example, this chronograph also comes with its original certificate stamped Daniel Roth & Gérald Genta Haute Horlogerie S.A that corresponds to the THG era.
