Although some may feel that the hands of Rolex Cellini are too short. Rolex Cellini collection also gives more choices in terms of design. When it comes to the movement, Rolex movement is well-tested and reliable as it is using their standard automatic movement from their Oyster sports timepieces. However Omega’s Master Co-Axial movement could just be unreliable, with a more high-tech feel as it has an anti-maganetic function of 15,000 Gauss.
