These new versions of the Rolex Cellini Time remove the Roman numerals on the dial as well as the Rolex crown logo as the 12 o’clock hour indicator. Rather, the logo is transferred to under 12 o’clock and employed facet-cut baton-style hour mark are used all around. Rolex gives 12 o’clock double markers to assist visually orientate the dial for legibility. For me, the Rolex Cellini Time dial is a excellent example of effective symmetry, in addition to some welcome nature and style – all in a watch meant for events where the wearer is all cleaned up.Inside that the Rolex Cellini Time 50505 watches are in house, Rolex-made automatic motions that function at 4Hz (28,800bph) with about 48 hours of power reserve. Like all Rolex watches today, the Cellini models abide by the stricter “Superlative Chronometer” criteria which are also known as “The Green Seal” certification. Rolex was playing around a bit with what to call its new performance criteria and I think it’s a good idea to market the “new meaning” of “Superlative Chronometer.” Essentially, it means COSC Chronometer certification also Rolex’s very own “Rolex Certification.” The former is arguably redundant as Rolex’s standards are more strict, requiring accuracy of -2/+2 seconds every day.
And no the answer is not, when it’s a Tudor. We are actually talking about the Cellini — the very un-Rolex looking watch around.According to Rolex, this is a collection that was developed as a party of Benvenuto Cellini, a goldsmith and musician who was patronised by Rome in the 1500s. Whatever the inspiration may be, what is certain is that these watches don’t actually appear to share much DNA using their other Rolex brethren. There is none of the sporty aesthetic of this Oyster or Submariner, or even the more dressy Datejust or even DayDate, this can be a really old-school apparel watch, pristine and simple.It surely makes you re-evaluate everything you know about Rolex. In a good way.The minute trail, which is generally on the exterior edge of the dial, here bisects the indicies, which some have contended seems a little fussy, although we believe it adds an element of style interest to what could be a very pedestrian dial. Additionally, it has a water resistance to 50m thanks to this screwdown crown and double bezel — though we are unsure how comfortable you’d feel splashing around in this number.We also love the elongated Roman numeral at 12, five, six and eight. It is a smart Deco-esque signature that lifts the look to the realms of really cool.On the wrist it appears like the watch you want you could have seen on your grandparent’s dressing table. There’s a classic feel but, by taking everything back to the simplest form, you get rid of the watch’s ability thus far, meaning that it also manages to feel clean and contemporary also.
At Baselworld 2016, Rolex introduced a few new styles of the recently re-launched Rolex Cellini dress watch collection that we debuted back in 2014 upon its release. My favorite new-for-2016 Rolex Cellini is a new dial style for the time-only “Cellini Time” model as seen here in the reference 50505 which is available in an 18k white gold or 18k Everose gold case.
To refresh your recollection, the modern Rolex Cellini Watches Of Switzerland Replica Cellini collection consists of three basic models. These are the Cellini Time, Cellini Date, and Cellini Dual Time. The Cellini Dual Time (hands-on here) is the most complicated of the models and is the only dual-time watch from Rolex that indicates both time zones in 12-hour format (versus their GMT watches that indicate the second time zone in 24-hour format). The Rolex Cellini Date (hands-on here) is rather straightforward and, as its name implies, offers a date dial versus a date window, as is the case on other Rolex models.
Just a year after the debut of the new Cellini collection, Rolex Cellini Watches Price List Replica series about making new versions. What was new for this year? Well, the Rolex Cellini Date 50519 obtained a lovely blue dial on the 18k white gold variant, and the Cellini Dual Time 50525 needed a “brown guilloche” dial alternative for the 18k Everose golden version. The Rolex Cellini Time 50505 obtained the simplest dial so far in either a 18k Everose golden in addition to 18k white gold case.We saw dial simplification occur with all the Rolex Cellini Time with diamonds (as linked to above), but for 2016 Rolex took it somewhat further, providing what is, in my estimation, the most tasteful version now. Even though there is deep competition among apparel watches, I am quite sure that, for a lot of people, Rolex just kind of nailed it using these cleaner-dialed Rolex Cellini Time models. In modern history, Rolex hasn’t had the strongest tasteful dress watch offering, but with these new variations of the 50505, Rolex has a very good offering that, combined with the Rolex name and quality, will make it very hard for others at this price point to compete with. It is likely to be a bit of a battle for even Vacheron Constantin and also Blancpain to compete with an offering such as this – not to mention additional powerful models from Chopard and Patek Philippe. While every brand has its distinct pluses, the Rolex name (and price(really) is gonna be difficult to beat for a big percentage of consumers out there.
The Cellini Time model is offered in four versions: With a black or white lacquered dial, along with a 39 mm case in a choice of 18k white or Everose gold. It is fitted on a remborded and stitched alligator leather strap with big scales, in glossy black or brown depending upon the model, using an 18k gold buckle matching the gold of this case.Until today, in case you were trying to find a dress watch manufactured by Rolex, you had two choices: the Day-Date, which however sits in the Oyster collection (thus more a casual compared to a appropriate dress watch) or even the Cellini Prince, a square-shaped timepiece that never needed a massive success (though we love it). And this moment, it seems that Rolex Cellini Danaos Watches Replica has what right: fine design, elegant feeling, complicated (but not too complex) moves, excellent execution and warranted cost… It is time for us to have a closer look in the dress watch from Rolex, in its most complex edition, the Rolex Cellini Double Time, Everose Gold Ref. 50525. From the conservative world of dress watches, it looks like creativity is scarce. An issue that you’ve probably already seen yourself: most dress watches are all very similar in their layout and exhibit. Whatever the brand, most have this “Calatrava” design, meaning round cases, polished, with a chamfered bezel and straight lugs plus usually a bright dial with two or three hands and baton applied indexes. The advantage of the 2014 Rolex Cellini collection is that it’s 100% Rolex however with the excess sophistication required by this kind of watches — that some predict dress watches or Tuxedo watches — and without being overly Rolex, meaning it’s not another Oyster watch.
Moreover, the Rolex Cellini stands out as it does not feature an Oyster case, as do most other Rolex watches. The case is similar to an Oyster, but a bit thinner and designed more for elegance versus sheer resistance to the elements. The Cellini case is 39mm wide and water resistant to 50 meters (versus the 100 meters of most Oyster cases – that aren’t diving watches). It’s slim on the wrist, and the light fluting on the dial is reminiscent of both historic Rolex timepieces as well as the ever popular more bold fluted bezels on watches such as the Rolex Datejust.
I covered the original Rolex Cellini Time watch collection here in 2014. Offering the time only with a minutes, hours, and seconds hand, the Rolex Cellini Time is, in my opinion, the most elegant of “The Crown’s” dress watch collection. Some people like complexity in their formal timepieces, but not me. I prefer to keep things simple, and extremely elegant. The original Rolex Cellini Time watches had an interesting dial design with a range of elements. A combination of Roman numeral and applied baton-style hour markers were basically bisected with a middle minute marker ring. Curious at first, the design was a very clever way of making a simple dial not appear quite as simple.
My images here are of those 18k Everose gold Rolex Cellini Time with 18k pink gold hands and markers onto the white lacquer dial. There is also the 18k white gold version, which is a bit longer “tuxedo” in its style. All of Rolex Cellini models arrive in precious metal for now – and it’s unlikely that steel versions will come anytime soon (or even at all). I am not a massive dress watch guy but I have become taken with such handsome Rolex Cellini models. Perhaps it’s the fact that they are simple dress watches that seem to have a little pleasure in the plan and do not take themselves more seriously than they need to. The cursive font used to write “Cellini” on the dial (which was done for a while) appears to suggest that to me personally. All these are watches worn during celebrations versus when you want to be severe (and sober). Price for the Rolex Cellini Time 50505 see versions is 14,500 Swiss francs.Rolex watches are the most recognized, high profile timepieces available. Rolex established three new and identifying Cellini families at Baselworld 2014. Here’s what you will need to know.Cellini timepieces are known for their refined sophistication and simplicity, along with the new families continue that heritage. Each household is named after the information it communicates: Time, Date, and Double Time — names as pure as the watches themselves.
Just a year after the debut of the new Cellini collection, Rolex Geneve Cellini Ladies Watch Replica set about producing new versions. In 2015, they debuted the Rolex Cellini Time watch with a diamond bezel (hands-on here), and all three of the Cellini models received new cosmetic versions in 2016. What was new for this year? Well, the Rolex Cellini Date 50519 received a lovely blue dial on the 18k white gold version, and the Cellini Dual Time 50525 had a “brown guilloche” dial option for the 18k Everose gold model. The Rolex Cellini Time 50505 received the most simple dial to date in both a 18k Everose gold as well as 18k white gold case.
We saw dial simplification occur with the Rolex Cellini Time with diamonds (as linked to above), but for 2016 Rolex took it a bit further, offering what is, in my opinion, the most elegant model today. While there is deep competition among dress watches, I am pretty sure that, for many people, Rolex just sort of nailed it with these cleaner-dialed Rolex Cellini Time models. In modern history, Rolex has never had the strongest elegant dress watch offering, but with these new versions of the 50505, Rolex has an extremely solid offering that, combined with the Rolex name and quality, will make it very tough for others at this price point to compete with. It’s going to be a bit of a battle for even Vacheron Constantin and Blancpain to compete with an offering such as this – not to mention other strong models from Chopard and Patek Philippe. While each brand has its distinct pluses, the Rolex name (and price, actually) is gonna be hard to beat for a large percentage of consumers out there.
The main elements that change all of it, would be the bezel and the general form of the circumstance. The Rolex Cellini Review Watch Snob Replica Cellini Dual Time ref. 50525 includes a case made of 18k Everose gold (Rolex own pink stone, a particular metal that keeps its pink colour longer than ‘normal’ pink stone). In addition, it is present in 18 white gold. The overall form of this instance is rather Rolex, however with specific details which make it quite different — and naturally, more elegant. It is like changing just one ingredient in a recipe. Same with the Rolex Cellini Double Time ref. 50525. The main recipe of a Rolex is here however a component (called classical elegance) was added.The central part of the case is faithful to Rolex traditions, with straight casebands and integrated lugs. However, lugs are here rather short, slimmer and more curved, which makes the case of the Rolex Cellini Double Time ref. 50525 somewhat bulky, softer, smoother. The next detail which reminds of Rolex without instantly catching the attention, is the bezel. The new Rolex Cellini comes with a double-stepped bezel with a coin profile and a bombé shape on the top. Therefore it reminds for instance the bezel of a DateJust or a Day-Date (with their fluted profile) but with something much more restrained, more discreet and classier.The Rolex Cellini Dual Time, design-wise, feels just like being a Rolex with something exceptional in terms of class. The identical feeling seems once on the wrist. Neither the Cellini is an extra-slim or super little watch but it wears superbly. The 39mm is right in the middle between too small dress watches and huge sports timepieces along with the 10mm / 11mm profile makes it a watch with the ideal presence on the wrist. Because of domed caseback (that’s notched and screwed( like on other Rolex watch), the Cellini feels very smooth on the wrist (the domed caseback somehow reminds of antique bubble-back watches by Rolex).
These new versions of the Rolex Cellini Time remove the Roman numerals on the dial as well as the Rolex crown logo as the 12 o’clock hour indicator. Rather, the logo is moved to below 12 o’clock and applied facet-cut baton-style hour markers are used all around. Rolex gives 12 o’clock double markers to help visually orientate the dial for legibility. For me, the Rolex Cellini Time dial is a great example of effective symmetry, as well as some welcome personality and style – all in a watch meant for occasions where the wearer is all cleaned up.
Inside the Rolex Cellini Time 50505 watches are in-house, Rolex-made automatic movements that operate at 4Hz (28,800bph) with about 48 hours of power reserve. Like all Rolex watches now, the Cellini models abide by the stricter “Superlative Chronometer” standards which are also known as “The Green Seal” certification. Rolex has been playing around a bit with what to call its new performance standards and I think it is wise to promote the “new meaning” of “Superlative Chronometer.” Basically, it means COSC Chronometer certification plus Rolex’s own “Rolex Certification.” The former is arguably redundant as Rolex’s standards are more stringent, requiring accuracy of -2/+2 seconds per day.
My images here are of the 18k Everose gold Rolex Cellini Watches Uk Replica Cellini Time with 18k pink gold hands and markers on the white lacquer dial. There is also the 18k white gold model, which is a bit more “tuxedo” in its style. All Rolex Cellini models come in precious metal for now – and it’s unlikely that steel models will come anytime soon (or at all). I’m not a huge dress watch guy but I’ve become taken with these handsome Rolex Cellini models. Perhaps it is the fact that they are straightforward dress watches that seem to have a little fun in the design and don’t take themselves more seriously than they need to. The cursive font used to write “Cellini” on the dial (which has been done for a while) seems to suggest that to me. These are watches worn during celebrations versus when you want to be serious (and sober). Attached to the watches are brown or black alligator straps with matching gold Rolex-signed buckles. Price for the Rolex Cellini Time 50505 watch models is 14,500 Swiss francs. rolex.com
