The Daniel Roth Athys (Limited Edition)  2 Comments


I recently chanced upon this exquiste watch. At first to me, it looked like just another Daniel Roth but there were initial tell tale signs there were something more about this watch. First was the larger than usual case size, then the unique subseconds dial. Then when I turned it over, I was taken aback by the movement. It looked distinctly familiar and when I carried out some checks, I was astounded to find out that it is my all time favourite old IWC Cal 98 that was intended for the Portuguese jubilee series. Apparently a small handful of these movements were found in the Daniel Roth stock of movements. Cleverly the company refinished the movement and even got parts from IWC to put them into their new Athys Limited Edition models.
In this classic model, the Athys 108.Z is limited to 35 pieces (in all metal variations). This is a collectable Athys (of which there are only 15 pieces in this white gold) is a prelude to the launch of an ‘entry-level’ product which I believe is the Athys II using the FP movement.
