Introduction

After working for several years at Audemars Piguet and Breguet, Daniel Roth moved to initiate his own brand in 1998. Some of the earliest timepieces exemplify what we find to be most interesting about his watches- unique, double ellipse shaped cases, and pinstriped guilloche dials. This particular example features the Lemania 2320 movement, which is similar to what is found in the Patek Philippe 5070, as well as some Roger Dubuis Hommage chronographs.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

The overall condition is excellent. Bezel and case have light scratches throughout. Dial appears to be untouched, exhibiting no signs of degeneration. The original strap is still in great shape indicating average wear.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative strap to the existing Alligator one, shall be provided.

Our Perspective

Daniel Roth watches, not unlike early Roger Dubuis, have been undergoing a rennasaince of sorts in the collectors' community. Seen as undervalued watches that express all the best attributes of traditional watchmaking, this Chronograph is no exception. Featuring the same Lemania movement as found in the Patek Philippe 5070 and the Vacheron Constantin Les Historiques, this is really a watch that punches above its weight class.
