This DR is quite a find. Its a tourbillon AND a perpetual calendar!

Response to Daniel Roth Automatic Tourbillon Images (Warning large files)


When I first saw this watch, I thought it was a standard DR but on closer inspection, I found that it had a hidden tourbillon cage (something quite unusual today as its mostly found on the dial today. Unlike in the recent past, the tourbillon cage was often found in the back). Being also a perpetual calendar, the automatic calibre makes it for easier maintenance on a common rotating winder - rather than a crown winder. Its a massive watch but its quality is unmistakeable. My impression is that this watch will grow on you/owner. The more I look at it, the more I am impressed by what it is and how it is executed. Not what I would call stealthy but its under the radar compared to many loud watches of today. Lovely timepiece. I am sure who ever buys this piece will be a happy camper!
