Rolex Cellini Collection – Cellini Time, Cellini Date & Cellini Dual Time

Rolex presents the new Cellini collection, a contemporary celebration of classicism and the eternal elegance of traditional timepieces. Consisting of 12 classically inspired models, this new collection combines the best of Rolex know-how, its high standards of perfection and the watchmaking heritage. These timepieces which boast sober and refined looks are manufactured using noble materials and perfected with luxurious finishing.

This spectacular watch collection is named after the great Italian Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini, who was also a goldsmith and sculptor to the popes. The Rolex Cellini models mark a return to the sources of classicism, reinterpreting it in perfect harmony with their time.

These watches, born of Rolex watchmaking tradition, evoke the finest examples of contemporary monumental architecture, where grandiose proportions and clean lines are accompanied by a strikingly modern reading of space and light. The new Cellini watches are freed of the formal constraints of their heritage, fully assuming their role as refined guardians of time, symbols of luxury steeped in values that reveal an authentic art de vivre.

The new Cellini collection celebrates the most fascinating and exalting facets of watchmaking tradition. Here, elegance and nobility are absolute. The cases are available exclusively in 18 ct white or Everose gold cast by Rolex in its own foundry.

Their round shape and classic 39 mm diameter are marks of tradition, while the refined lugs, the polished finish and the double bezel – one domed and the second delicately fluted – add a touch of distinction.

An emblematic Rolex feature, this fluting is also present on the case back, serving to screw it down. The case back is domed as in bygone eras. The flared shape of the screw-down crown highlights the refined aesthetics of the Cellini. The dials also bear witness to know- how and tradition. They are either lacquered or embellished with a black or a silver-plated classic “rayon flammé de la gloire” guilloche motif and adorned with gold applique hour markers. The layout of the dials is determined by the watches’ different functions, dividing the collection into three families.

The Cellini Time models are the quintessential expression of a watchmaking classic and offer the basic timekeeping functions. The Cellini Date models add a date function via a hand on a small sub-dial, blending practicality and elegance.

Finally, the Cellini Dual Time models indicate the time in two time zones simultaneously and feature an elegant sun and moon day/night indicator in an aperture on the sub-dial for the second time zone.

All the new Cellini models feature a high-precision self-winding mechanical movement, certified as a chronometer and entirely manufactured by Rolex. In the purest traditional style, these Gentlemen dress watches are available only with shiny black or brown alligator leather straps, stitched, remborded and with an 18 ct gold buckle.

Cellini Time
The Cellini Time, a classic Rolex designed for the everyday timekeeping boasts a simple, clear dial which pays tribute to the timeless codes of classic watchmaking, while reinterpreting them with an elegant modernity: stylized, elongated Roman numerals; stretched applique hour markers, which are divided by a minute track that has been moved towards the centre of the dial, closer to the tips of the hands.

Faceted and shaped like a two-edged sword, the hands count off each second, each minute and each hour with the full precision of the self-winding chronometer movement at the heart of this prestigious timepiece.

The Cellini Time model is offered in four versions: with a black or white lacquered dial, and with a 39 mm case in a choice of 18 ct white or Everose gold. It is fitted on a stitched alligator leather strap with large scales, in shiny black or brown depending on the model, with an 18 ct gold buckle matching the gold of the case.
