Daniel Roth Recreates its Ellipsocurvex Papillon Watch

Dec 30, 2008
Swiss luxury watch brand Daniel Roth has recreated its Ellipsocurvex Papillon watch. Now, the timepiece reveals not only the ingenuity of the one-of-a-kind mechanical time display but also the beauty of elegant gem-setting.

The case of the new luxurious versions of the Daniel Roth Ellipsocurvex Papillon watch is sculptured from 5N 18K red gold, or 18K white gold. It features the double-elliptical design that distinguishes Daniel Roth watches from timepieces of other brands.

The red gold watch sparkles with black and white round brilliant diamonds, while the white gold watch is adorned with diamonds and blue sapphires.

The zest of both versions is a originally designed winding crown that demonstrates seven fluted surfaces.

The sophisticated time display of the Daniel Roth Papillon watch has united a jumping hour complication with a unique butterfly wing minutes display presented via retracting lozenge-shaped hands that are positioned at 180-degrees from each other. With help of a special mechanism, the blued steel or red gold lozenge hands pivot 90-degrees upon their own axis, indicating the minutes on the semi-circular sector embellished with guilloche.

As for the small seconds, they are presented right at the center of the dial via a special aperture provided with its own sapphire crystal with anti-glare treatment, the same as the hour and butterfly-shaped minute sectors.

The Daniel Roth Ellipsocurvex Papillon watch accommodates the DR115 caliber, an ultra-flat manufactured movement, 2.98mm high, based on the automatic Girard-Perregaux 3100 caliber, elaborated to incorporate the Daniel Roth Papillon modules for the complications. The movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It offers a 45-hour power-reserve.

The fine decoration of the movement may be admired through an elliptical sapphire crystal exhibition window. The movement reveals a circular grained main-plate, the bridges decorated with Cotes de Geneve, and a gold rotor embellished with a guilloche pattern.

The Daniel Roth Ellipsocurvex Papillon watch is coupled with a hand-sewn alligator leather strap fitted with a folding clasp in rose or white gold. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.
