Founded in 1989, Daniel Roth is long-established as one of the early entrants in the independent watchmaking space, which has since ballooned in popularity with brands like Urwerk, MB&F, and Richard Mille launching from the very foundations that Daniel Roth laid. With their distinctive styling, fresh take on design, and technical prowess, the indie watchmaker quickly rose to fame. An emblematic example of their watchmaking guile, this extremely rare stainless steel tourbillon was released in 1994 for the Singapore-based retailer The Hour Glass after they saved Daniel Roth from the verge of bankruptcy following the downfall of their previous owners, Chaumet, in 1992. A stunningly beautiful watch that symbolizes Daniel Roth’s craftsmanship and technical prowess like none other, this incredible tourbillon-touting timepiece also features a triple-handed tourbillon cage with hands of varying lengths that sweep over 20-second scales as the tourbillon rotates. Paired with this vastly complex feature is a stunning two-tone grey dial with vertical pinstripe guilloche engraving and concentric satin finish along the chapter rings, which combine with the stainless steel ellipsocurvex case to create a wonderful monochromatic aesthetic that is just sublime.
