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 that company’s lines of highly complicated watches. The lot offered here first presented in 2002 was treated in 2006 to new dials as well as a broader tourbillon cage and bridge in keeping with the original Daniel Roth lines. The iconic shaped and curved case with stepped rounded bezel with diamond-set baguette has been manufactured in white gold and preserved by the last owner with notable cure and attention. The Guilloché silver-plated dial is beautiful with Tourbillon Bridge set and baguette-cut pink sapphires, Black hand-stitched alligator strap with white-gold buckle with baguette-cut diamonds which added to the case and the crown come to a total of about 100. Exceptional 200 hours (8 days) power reserve the watch also comes with its original Box, Papers, Tag, Setting Tool and Magnifying Glass. Extremely precious, this very lot is a unique piece and thus the only chance available to purchase such an astonishing specimen.
