Review

The debut watch from one of independent watchmaking’s rising stars, the ROOTS first edition by Philippe Narbel of Narbel & Co is a remarkable piece of minimalist elegance and intricate detail, which blends classic horologic architecture with contemporary styling, sharp angles with soft curves, and which features at its centre, a uniquely textured metallic fingerprint.
