The 12 o'clock is in its traditional position and as the numbers on either side of the 12 extend outwards, tradition is replaced by intriguing design, so much so the hour display are book-ended by two 6 'o'clocks. In every Daniel Roth's timepiece there is always a little surprise. Daniel Roth timepieces are considered highly prestigious amongst watch collectors.
