Daniel Roth Time Only
Inspired by Daniel Roth’s first time only, ref. C107, this elegant time-only piece includes a date function and centralised sweeping seconds.
It is believed that this specific reference S177 builds upon both past references C107 and C157, with the ambition of offering a variety of sizes for the time-only reference. This double-ellipse stainless steel Daniel Roth measures 35mm x 38mm in diameter. The unique shape of the modernized case along with the addition of the downward slopping lugs allows this Daniel Roth to offer unparalleled comfort on the wrist. The dial features a sharply executed pinstripe guilloché pattern, which complements the light, brushed chapter ring with Roman numerals. This particular reference was usually offered in contrasting color dials, however, this particular example features a monotone salmon dial.
The dial is signed “DANIEL ROTH” at 12 o’clock and “SWISS MADE” at 6 o’clock, and the individual number of the watch is placed on the case-back. Additionally, the outer dial features 9 luminova plots found above the roman numerals. Through the contrasting blue steeled hands the legibility of this specific reference is enhanced.
The automatic movement signed by Daniel Roth, is adjusted to five positions and features thirty-two jewels. The slim moment is made by Girard Perregaux, the GP 3000 was launched in 1994, the movement found in this Daniel Roth is the GP 3100. The use of ball bearings in movements requires lubrication which could provide a myriad of issues. To prevent these problems, Girard-Perregaux, in collaboration with a supplier, developed ball bearings, which eliminated any lubrication and increased the efficiency of the movement. Aesthetically, the calibre is finished to a high standard. The classic Côtes de Genève is found on both the 18-carat gold rotor as well as the base of the movement.
