  • Catalogue Essay

    - One of the most brilliant watchmakers of his generation, Daniel Roth first worked for Audemars Piguet in the late 1960s. It was in 1973 that he changed the face of modern horology when he joined Breguet, then a brand on the verge of bankruptcy that only made a handful of timepieces.

    - Roth recreated wristwatches directly inspired by Abraham-Louis Breguet’s pocket watches, producing some of the first modern perpetual calendar and tourbillon wristwatches. Roth left Breguet in 1987 to start his own brand.

    - 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.

    - The Master Perpetual Calendar Chronograph was available in yellow and white gold, both versions are made in a limited edition of 15 pieces only. Intricately finished with two guilloché motif, the dial furthermore features elegant Breguet numerals and a large moon phase aperture sitting below the arched Daniel Roth signature at 12 o’clock. A symmetrical design, the case number is printed at replacement of the 6 o’clock numeral.

    - With the recent 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 example, this perpetual chronograph numbered 3 from a limited edition of 15 is certainly a collectible creation by Daniel Roth.
