Rolex Cellini Time was part of the Rolex Cellini Collection which was introduced in Baselworld 2014. Cellini Time, together with Cellini Date, and Cellini Dual Time; are meant for Rolex fans who prefer an elegant dress style watch on their wrists. Rolex re-introduced the Cellini line, which was first released in 1928 as ‘the Rolex Cellini Prince’. After all, the Prince series were quite well-liked thanks to the inspiration from the rectangular Prince of the 1920s and their off centred dials. But the market for rectangular watches is limited, and we are glad to see Rolex introduce round watches in their 2014 Cellini collection.
Cellini Time watch is the simplest version of the three models, and probably the most well balanced (symetrically) and traditional. Take a look at the Rolex Cellini Time intro video.
Rolex Cellini Time Review
The Rolex Cellini Time model has four different versions to offer, with either a choice of white or black lacquered dial, and 18k white gold or everose gold in a 39mm case. The are fitted on alligator leather strap with large scales, and depending on the model, you will have a choice of black or brown strap.
Cellini Time is the quintessential expression of timepiece making classic. It has three simple hands with the hour and minute hands like a double-edged sword, and a seconds hand. To help it attain its’ 50 meter water resistant function, the crown has a tapered fluted finishing that screws down to the case. The case back is doomed and fluted, holding a self-winding 3132 calibre COSC certified movement, which includes Rolex’ Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring.
To add on to the vintage feel, the markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 positions are romanic numbers. The markers seems stretched, but somehow feels well-proportioned with the hour, minute, and second hands.
