Introduction

Founded in 1989, Daniel Roth is long-established as one of the early entrants in the independent watchmaking space that has since ballooned with brands like Urkwerk, MB&F, and Richard Mille launching from the foundations that Daniel Roth laid. With their distinctive styling, fresh take on design, and technical prowess, the watchmaker quickly rose to fame. An emblematic example of their watchmaking style, this stainless steel Chronograph model features a stunning silver dial with vertical pinstripe guilloche and concentric satin-finished chronograph counters and chapter rings with an interesting texture along their border. Pairing distinctive blued steel hands with heritage-inspired black Roman numerals, this Chronograph’s styling is unique in that it blends design cues rooted in watchmaking tradition with Daniel Roth's own innovative take on the industry’s processes, namely through their signature ellipsocurvex case - much like Richard Mille and Franck Muller's use of the tonneau case.

Condition

In excellent condition. The dial and case are very well preserved. The case with very good definition and proportions with only the slightest signs of surface wear. The case back with very crisp engravings. Overall, a great example of a Daniel Roth stainless steel chronograph.

Our Perspective

A quintessential example of Daniel Roth's unique style and aesthetic, this piece is a wonderful reminder of why the independent watchmaker was so cherished in the 1990s and 2000s, with their much-deserved resurgence gripping the market in the last 12 months.
