—Geoffrey Roth, CEO GR Watch Engineering
Geoffrey Roth is an admirer of fine American handcrafted work. For over 42 years this has served as the catalyst for his creative endeavors, taking him from prominent gallery owner to luxury watchmaker.
In 1974 Geoffrey opened Geoffrey Roth Ltd, a premier gallery in Sedona, Arizona, representing award-winning jewelry designers and sculptors. As Geoffrey established his presence in the art world, he developed a growing interest in high quality timepieces, making numerous visits to the prestigious European Clock, Watch and Jewelry Fair in Basel, Switzerland.
In 1998 Geoffrey realized it was time to take the next step and set out to create his very first watch, which took more than two years to finish due to outsourced components. His earliest watches, created in stainless steel and 18k gold, were so well received that Roth became motivated to take the majority of his manufacturing in house. Today Geoffrey uses exquisite materials, precision tools, and CNC machining to ensure his watches can be made precisely to his design and standards. He operates between studios in Sedona and Scottsdale, Arizona. Geoffrey Roth Watch Engineering believes in watches that are timeless. That’s why we uphold our pieces to the highest standard of engineering and design, using only the finest materials and an exceptional degree of precision mechanics.
Like any good work of art, a Geoffrey Roth watch does more than tell time, it tells a story. Our distinct designs cater to an enduring aesthetic with lines that flow, surfaces that curve, and forms that make sense. We have taken on the challenge of pairing complex machinery with simple elegance, ensuring that we create pieces that will last a lifetime. Today, we are among the few visionaries resurrecting the art of fine watchmaking in America.
