Dear Purists and fellow Daniel Roth enthousiasts,

it is with sadness that, for personal reasons, I had to take the decision to step down as moderator of the Daniel Roth forum as of the end of the month.

My time on ThePuristS, and here among you, has been memorable, and I will try to come back and hang out with you as often as I can.

Thank you very much for all the good times and the great memories!

You will be sorely missed...

September 12 2006, 3:36 AM 

as your presence at the DR forum has sort of become ingrained in all of us.
You've been a most gracious and helpful moderator and I hope you will continue to stop by for a chat.
Great job and thank you!

Kind regards,

Torpong

Dear Alberto,
While in Paris yesterday going through the fantastic retrospective of the brand organised together with our friend and ambassador of the brand Walther Ronchetti at Kronometry I could not help thinking of you.

I know you since I joined Roth and somehow I feel like loosing a friend. I will be missing reading your passionate comments on the brand, and I definitely ask you to continue to be in touch with us ... let friendship go on !

Your contribution to the knowledge of the values of Haute Horlogerie has been a great achievement and I thank you for this.

Cheers and good luck !

Gerald

Merci!

Dear Gérald,

I am sorry we did not manage to hook up while you were in Paris, but I wanted to thank you for your very kind words.

Rest assured that I continue to remain just as passionate about the Daniel Roth brand, and that this is certainly not an "adieu" - I fully intend to keep in touch with you, and to continue to develop our friendship!

Thank you very much for your generous and very kind assistance over the years, both with your time, your knowledge, and with the "open doors" approach you had with me whenever I came over to visit your offices, be this in Geneva or in the valley.

I already know that I will miss moderating this forum, and the interaction with you which resulted from this, but I do look forward to seeing you in Basel/Geneva in the coming months!

Amicalement,
Alberto

Sincere thanks to Alberto for his service to the community here

Alberto and I have already exchanged our personal thoughts on this via private email, but I wanted to make a public statement of thanks.

I was (and still am) traveling internationally when the announcement was made, with very unreliable internet access.

Your personal friendship is highly cherished by me, Alberto, and you know that you have our support and willingness to do anything to help in any way we can.

Thanks you, and fully hoping/expecting you to check in as often as you can.

Sincerely,

Thomas
