Daniel Roth Automatic Date 176 Grey Dial

Daniel Roth Automatic Date 177 Grey Dial

Daniel Roth was born into a family of horological experts – his grandfather and great-grandfather were both watchmakers based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. As a result, Daniel’s childhood was spent in a watchmaking repair shop in the South of France, where he was naturally exposed to the world of watchmaking from a young age.

Daniel Roth was a highly skilled watchmaker who made significant contributions that are often overlooked today. He was instrumental in establishing the design language of Breguet dress watches that are popular today. In the 1960s and 70s, Breguet was a struggling watch brand with an uncertain future until Chaumet acquired it and appointed Daniel Roth as its leader. During his time there, he created the master piece reference 3130, which featured a guilloche dial and straight lugged case, setting the tone for Breguet’s design language. Additionally, Daniel Roth played a crucial role in developing complex movements for Lemania, which until recently supplied chronograph calibers to renowned brands such as Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin.

The Daniel Roth Automatic Date watch, reference number 176, is designed for men and features a stainless steel watch case with a diameter of approximately 36mm x 38mm, the steel double-ellipse case of the watch is a distinctive feature that embodies the signature style of Daniel Roth. Its shape is a unique blend of round and rectangular elements. The watch is both bold and comfortable to wear, thanks to its slim profile of only 7.7mm thickness.

The Daniel Roth Automatic Date 176 watch is a manually assembled timepiece that runs on an automatic caliber created by Daniel Roth and based on the Girard Perregaux 3100 movement (signed GPM). This caliber is expertly crafted with 27 jewels, Côtes de Genève finishing, a power reserve of 46 hours, a 28,800 A/h oscillating balance, and polished screw heads. All these features come together to showcase the epitome of fine watchmaking.

On the dial, ‘DANIEL ROTH’ signature at the 12 o’clock position. The watch’s stepped bezel and sharp, straight lugs contribute to the powerful presence of the dial, which combines simplicity and refinement to create an everlasting captivating scene defined by lines and curves.

The main function of the watch, besides telling time, is represented by the date aperture located at 6 o’clock. This aperture aesthetically deviates from the signature sub dial at 6, and features a bidirectional ‘quick-set’ date that can be easily adjusted by moving the screw down crown forwards or backwards. A subtle ‘Swiss’ engraving can be found underneath the date, hinting at the watch’s origin in the Vallée de Joux.

The stunning attention to detail is evident in features such as the partly gold rotor visible through the open sapphire caseback, the Daniel Roth signature and unique number on the caseback, signed tang buckle in steel with a pattern that matches the watch’s dial.
