Il Giocatore Veneziano

Daniel Roth and the internationally renowned automaton maker, François Junod, have joined forces to produce a truly emotional masterpiece: an Automaton, representing a 16th century Venetian dice player, combined with a minute repeater wristwatch containing a miniaturised automaton. The watch movement strikes the hours, quarters and minutes on request and is completely disconnected from the automaton movement. The dice player - inspired by Caravaggio’s masterpiece The Cardsharps - comes to life, throws the dice, and lifts the two leather goblets he is holding so the observer can see what he has thrown. The results can be almost limitless.
