ELEGANCE AND NOBILITY
A celebration of watchmaking tradition
Rolex presents the new Cellini collection, a contemporary celebration of classicism and the eternal elegance of traditional timepieces. This new collection combines the best of Rolex know-how and its high standards of perfection with an approach that heightens watchmaking heritage in its most timeless form. The lines are sober and refined, the materials noble, the finishings luxurious: every detail respects the codes of the art of watchmaking. But, this new collection is not suspended in an idealized past. Like the Italian Renaissance – one of whose most admired artists, Benvenuto Cellini, goldsmith and sculptor to the popes, inspired the name of the collection – the Rolex Cellini models mark a return to the sources of classicism, reinterpreting it in perfect harmony with their time.
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. 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 Cellini Date models add a date function via a hand on a small sub‑dial, blending practicality and elegance.
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 watches are available only with shiny black or brown alligator leather straps stitched, remborded and with an 18 ct gold buckle; a fitting reward for the sheer elegance of a gentleman.
The Cellini Date model is offered in four versions: with a black or silver dial featuring a “rayon flammé de la gloire” guilloche motif, and with a 39 mm case in a choice of 18 ct white or Everose gold. It is fitted on a remborded and stitched alligator leather strap with large scales, in shiny black or brown depending on the model, and with an 18 ct gold buckle matching the gold of the case.
