Daniel Roth is universally known for its complicated watches: the company was created in 1989 after periods working for both Audemars Piguet and Breguet where he contributed significantly to those company’s lines of highly complicated watches. One of its signature complications, the Retrograde was inspired by the similar complication made by Abraham-Louis Breguet, which was also the basis for the series of tourbillon pocket watches made by George Daniels that had a similar retrograde-hour display. This very complication is equipped on the Premier Retrograde reference 807L.10 here offered. The iconic shaped and curved case with stepped rounded bezel and curved lugs has been manufactured I stainless steel and preserved by the last owner with notable cure and attention. The black textured vertical guilloche dial with painted luminous radial Roman numerals for the retrograde hours on a plain reserve has outer minute division with 5-minute red Arabic markers, subsidiary oversized dial for the date at 6. The watch also comes with its original box and papers.
