Born in France to a family dedicated to watchmaking, Daniel Roth has left an important mark on modern companies. Not only was he on the foundation of the modern Breguet company, but he was also a pioneer of independent events. Roth worked on a number of projects, including Jaeger-LeCoultre and Audemars Piguet. But one of the most important steps in his career was when he sought the position of an expert watchmaker in Breguet, the color the Chaumet brothers acquired (from a well-known brand of jewelry) and the idea of ​​restoring it to its former glory. – and this was the case before Swatch Group and Mr Hayek. During his 14 years in Breguet and together with François Bodet (Breguet leader), he described the brand in the form of a wristwatch. Following the bankruptcy announcement of Chaumet and Breguet (due to large debts incurred by the Chaumet brothers), Breguet was sold to Investcorp in 1987, a year after Roth resigned, which enabled him to work on his own.

In 1988, Daniel Roth coined his well-known, independent name – something that, in the old days, was not uncommon in the watchmaking industry, never to recover from the quartz crisis. Roth worked on creating custom-made collections, with complex or temporary models, many of which share similar designs with other designs borrowed from his years in Breguet – just look at guilloché dials, handcuffs or a whole display of unstable shape. Although Roth was able to make a sign with more than a dozen employees in just four years, he struggled with financial problems, which led him to sell his property to Singapore retailer The Hour Glass in 1994. The result was a dramatic rise. in production figures and power, yet from Roth’s original vision, which appears in the late 1990s. In 2000, the brand was sold to Bvlgari.

It took several years for the assembly team to understand the importance of watches manufactured by Daniel Roth (especially watches from 1988 to the mid-1990s). Preserved for a long time, permanent collectors, Roth watches are now popular because other types are in high demand. In particular, the Double Face Tourbillon is a stainless steel type made in 1994 by The Hour Glass.
