Daniel Roth, a scion of a horological dynasty deeply rooted in the annals of Swiss watchmaking, was destined to be a maestro of timepieces. His grandfather and great-grandfather, both accomplished watchmakers in the hallowed city of Neuchâtel, imbued in him the passion and artistry for haute horlogerie. Daniel's journey into the realm of watchmaking began with his technical apprenticeship in Nice, where he honed his skills and expertise. It was not long before the young prodigy realized his lifelong dream of joining the ranks of the Vallée de Joux's horological elites, the birthplace of many of the world's finest timepieces. Daniel was accepted as a watchmaker at the prestigious Audemars Piguet, where he stood out as the only horologist not hailing from Le Brassus, the brand's ancestral home.
After seven years of impeccable craftsmanship and dedication to Audemars Piguet, Daniel caught the discerning eye of the Chaumet brothers, the former proprietors of Breguet. The brothers were determined to revive the glory of the venerable brand, which was then struggling to survive the Quartz Crisis. Thus, they sought a Master Watchmaker who could help them achieve this feat. Inspired by the work of the legendary watchmaker, Daniel Roth committed himself to the task of revitalizing the manufacture. But before embarking on this mission, he went back to school to delve deeper into Breguet's archives and techniques. Over the next fourteen years, he played a pivotal role in the resurrection of the watchmaker, elevating the style, finishing, and complications of wristwatches to new heights.
In 1989, Daniel Roth boldly decided to establish his own manufacture, becoming one of the first truly independent watchmakers to work under his own name. He imbued his Breguet-inspired creations with a unique twist, cementing his aesthetic codes that were distinctly his own. From the double-ellipse case to the exquisitely executed pinstripe guilloché dials adorning some of his models, Daniel's designs were an expression of his creative genius. Although his production was limited, his diversity and inventiveness were boundless, spanning the gamut from tourbillons to chronographs. Daniel Roth was one of the most prominent independent watchmakers of the 1990s, alongside esteemed names such as Franck Muller, Roger Dubuis, and Francois-Paul Journe. In 2000, Bulgari acquired the company, and Daniel Roth stepped back from the business, leaving behind a legacy of exceptional watchmaking that will endure for generations to come.
Exciting news for horology enthusiasts and collectors alike, as Daniel Roth is set to make a comeback. The brand, which has been under the auspices of Bulgari since 2000, will once again operate as an independent marque with the support of renowned luxury houses Louis Vuitton and La Fabrique du Temps. Led by master watchmakers Michel Navas and Enrico Barbasini, the revived Daniel Roth is expected to unveil its first timepiece in the latter half of 2023. With the relaunch of this storied name, it is anticipated that the value of vintage Daniel Roth pieces will see a significant uptick.
We are thrilled to introduce you to a horological masterpiece that is both timeless and innovative - the GMT watch by Daniel Roth. This exquisite timepiece was introduced in 1996, during the Hour Glass era, and has since become an icon of luxury and style.
Crafted with precision and care, the GMT watch features a modified Girard Perregaux (GP 3100) movement that ensures accuracy and reliability. The watch's dial boasts two apertures - one for the dual time function located at the 12 o'clock position, and the other for the date window at the 6 o'clock position. The crown side of the case also comes equipped with a button to advance the hour, making this watch an ideal companion for jet-setters and adventurers alike.
The GMT watch by Daniel Roth is a testament to the brand's commitment to excellence and innovation. While the name Daniel Roth may not be the first on everyone's lips, his early creations are almost always instantly recognizable for their impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design. As a pioneer of bringing independent watchmakers into the mainstream, Daniel Roth remains one of the most respected and avant-garde watchmakers of his generation.
In conclusion, the GMT watch by Daniel Roth is a true masterpiece that embodies luxury, style, and functionality. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a connoisseur of fine timepieces, this watch is sure to impress. We highly recommend the GMT watch by Daniel Roth for anyone looking for a sophisticated and elegant timepiece that will stand the test of time,
