Geoffrey Roth Watches - Introduction

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona (USA), Geoffrey Roth Watch Engineering Company creates highly artistic and exclusive mechanical watches using the finest materials and incorporating exceptional engineering and design techniques.

The company’s founder, Geoffrey Roth, an admirer of fine American handcrafts, opened a premier gallery in Sedona in 1974 representing award-winning jewelry designers and sculptors. Thanks to his association with fine art crafts, 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 Roth decided to create his very first watch, which took a couple of years to finish due to outsourced components. His earliest watches, crafted in stainless steel and 18k gold, became popular and fuelled by this success he started 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.

Presently Geoffrey Roth creates exclusive timepieces under four watch families: HH2, HH3, HH4 and HH5.

Collections

HH3: This collection offers midsized and sophisticated luxury watches that suit for both men and women. The collection features the original HH3 model and HH3 Red Gold with Diamonds. Collection models are priced from $4,300.
HH4: Substantial but sleek, the HH4 features a complex profile and concave back to reinvent the look and feel of the traditional 46mm watch. The collection is comprised solely of the original HH4 model, which is priced from $4,900.
HH5: Featuring curved lines and smooth design, the HH5 collection features the original HH5 model, HH5 Damascus, HH5 PVD Damascus and HH5 PVD Dial. Collection models are priced from $9,500.
