  • Catalogue Essay

    Daniel 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.

    He immediately created a personal design language, the most obvious being the unusual shape of his watches that later came to be defined as an ellipsocurvex, hands with pointed tips and dials with a horizontal guilloché pattern.

    Roth always worked with the greatest movement manufacturers of his time and the present chronograph houses a Zenith El Primero movement dubbed the DR500.

    The present lot with the double-ellipse case fitted with pinstripe guilloché pattern dial, brushed chapter ring and Roman numerals would be a nice additional for collectors looking for early Daniel Roth chronograph pieces.
