When the Rolex Cellini replica watches range was relaunched by Rolex in 2014, the General Manager of Rolex Australia, Patrick Boutellier, chose a line of poetry to announce the news: “The sleeping Prince has been awoken,” he said, or words to that effect, as Felix and I pored over the new range, not quite sure what to think.
We were certainly intrigued by these classic, luxurious faces amongst other more colourful offerings, such as the white gold ‘Pepsi’ GMT-Master II and the new Milgauss. The light embroidery of poetry and classicism in Patrick’s description somehow attached itself to the watch in that moment, and the more I’ve learned about it, the more this type of fairytale mystery fits. But how would it wear? What would I wear it with? What else would I learn about this seemingly simple design on the wrist? I found out by wearing it for a week.
My first impression was… Rolex’s mots classic fake watches, tuned to utter perfection. The Cellini represents a design from another time, and as we mentioned in the first video review of the Cellini Date, is often pitched against the three-handed heavyweights, being the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony and the Patek Philippe Calatrava. It deserves to be mentioned in this company, and this model is, for me, the pick of the wider Cellini range. Some of the font elements of the previous model didn’t age too well. Those stretched Roman numerals for example. This iteration gets absolutely everything right, especially the new cleaner, even more classic dial.
Once I put it on, it felt… like no other Rolex I’ve worn, thanks in large part to its extremely slim case profile. It’s among the slimmest in the catalogue, and thanks to those tapered lugs it sits very close to the wrist. The polished ‘bubble back’ caseback gives it a more cushiony wrist-feel to my GMT-Master II, which is a watch I wear most days. It’s extremely comfortable.
Looks-wise… it really surprised me. The Cellini name in the Rolex alligator leather strap fake watches for men catalogue until 2014 has been synonymous with the Cellini Prince, which is a rectangular model, reprised most recently in 2015, that forgoes practically all of the Rolex details – fluted bezels and casebacks, crowns, recognisable bracelets and the like – and even added some details, in the form of a clear caseback.
But where the Cellini Prince was not afraid to eschew its family traits, or go rogue every now and again (a clear caseback, on a Rolex, as well as a hand-wound movement?), this Cellini, which actually is not a Prince by name technically speaking, is basically that handsome guy out of Shrek. Clearly cut from the family cloth, and almost annoyingly perfect to look at.
With Baselworld 2016 within reach, it’s always a bit of a mind game to ponder what might be in store from some of the more highly anticipated brands in attendance. Rolex fake watches us, being one of those highly anticipated brands, debuted some widely talked-about models last year, and if the past can foreshadow the future, Baselworld 2016 will be a winner as well. Here’s a brief look at last year’s new products.
The Rolex Replica Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40, a highlight for many last year, was shown with a 40mm case and a new mechanical movement—caliber 3255, backed by fourteen patents insuring greater accuracy and resistance to shocks and magnetism, a longer power reserve, and greater ease of use and reliability.
More than ninety per cent of the caliber 3255 movement parts were redesigned and optimized, from those that produce and store energy (self-winding module and mainspring) to the regulating organ responsible for precision (oscillator), the gear train and the escapement, which is responsible for almost half of the increased power reserve of the caliber (now about 70 hours). The patented Chronergy escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus and is impervious to magnetic interference. Will we see something new in 2016 with this 40mm case size?
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date replica watches was introduced last year in 950 platinum and in 18-karat white, yellow or Everose gold, with a variety of new dial options. As you know, Everose gold, which Rolex makes in its own foundry, is an alloy containing gold, copper, and a bit of platinum that gives it its unique appearance and properties.
Rolex made it a point to emphasize its own high-tech methodology to test the precision of its chronometers under conditions that simulate the wearer’s experience rather than isolated extrapolations. These tests complement the official COSC certification (to which all Rolex movements are submitted) and are carried out on both the movement as well as the assembled watches.
And speaking of mechanical movements, the Lady-Datejust 28, fitted with caliber 2236 with a Rolex-patented Syloxi hairspring (first used by Rolex in 2014), showed off its new 28mm case in 950 platinum and yellow or Everose gold—and with new dials, too. The watches were introduced with or without a diamond bezel and diamond indexes.
The quintessential Oyster Perpetual got a makeover last year, with new dials in the 26, 31 and 34mm sizes, while a brand new 39mm version was introduced as well. Will we see new colors this year?
And another icon—the Swiss Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster watches—welcomed a new size/material combo in a jewelry-style version: 39mm in yellow or white gold with colored baguette-cut sapphires decorating the bezels. Three palettes were introduced for the Pearlmaster, each with a gradation of color that ranges from blue to fuchsia pink, blue to green, and orange to yellow.
A new Replica Rolex Yacht-Master in two sizes—40mm and a new 37mm—came on the scene in 18-karat Everose gold. Each displays a rotating bezel fitted with a new matte black Cerachrom insert with polished raised numerals. The patented and quite complex “rubber” Oysterflex bracelet employs a metal framework with a black elastomer overlay.
The Yacht-Master strap is ridged for stability. In my opinion, this is truly a great looking and thoughtfully conceived timepiece that proves that collections can continue to evolve and inspire. How will a new Yacht-Master differ in 2016?
Finally the 39mm Replica Rolex Cellini Time watches embraced four new gem-set versions in 18-karat white or Everose gold. One style features a single row of diamonds on the bezel, while another offers a double décor, combining a row of diamonds with Rolex fluting. The single-row versions are offered with new pink or rhodium dials with a sunray finish and applied hour markers, while the double décor has a black lacquer dial alight with 11 diamonds complementing the hour markers. The bezel of the former version features 62 diamonds, while the latter features 96. Inside each is a self-winding movement with about 48 hours of power reserve.
It is actually a pity that I don’t personally have more occasions to wear a timepiece such as the Replica Rolex Cellini. Very much distinct from the famed Swiss replica watch maker’s more sporty products, this is the formal-blood of today’s Rolex brand. When Rolex recently debuted a brand new version of the Replica Rolex Cellini dress watch collection in 2014, they didn’t just offer one new watch, but a trio of models that would later be further subdivided into the family of (often only slightly different) collection pieces. The simplest version of the new Replica Rolex Cellini is the “Cellini Time,” and it indicates just the time with central hours, minutes, and seconds hands.
This particular reference 50709RBR version is near the top of the Rolex Cellini Time watch pyramid, being one of two models with a diamond-set bezel. Of course, the collection begins with the standard Rolex Cellini Time in 18k white or Everose gold that does not contain diamonds, and builds up to two diamond-set models. One such model has a reduced fluted bezel which is flanked by a thin ring of diamonds around the bezel and additional diamonds on the dial as hour markers; while the current top version of the Cellini Time is the pictured model that entirely does away with the fluted bezel in favor for a larger row of round-cut diamonds decorating the bezel. It is actually a very logical way of positioning a Rolex dress watch, if you think about it.
I’ve mentioned in the past how I place the Rolex Cellini in the category of tuxedo watches because they are not only designed to be dress watches but further intended to be formal dress watches. What is the difference? Well, a dress watch is suitable for office and other professional to casual business attire. A formal watch is of course dressy but takes things a step further, being more akin to a ballroom dress for women – specifically intended to highlight both exclusivity and celebration.
So why is the Rolex Cellini Time a solid timepiece when you want to both feel exclusive and celebrate – especially when it comes to this model with diamonds? In this context, “exclusivity” more or less means “luxury priced.” It implies that few people can own it, either because of cost or rarity. Rolex timepieces might not be rare in the context of timepieces, but the ability to afford one is rare when taking into consideration the volume of disposable income most people in general have. Even in the context of high-end timepieces, dressy Swiss Rolex replica watches are uncommon because Rolex buyers tend to stick with buying more traditional models such as a Submariner or Datejust before venturing out to purchase more niche models such as the Rolex Cellini.
Being a Rolex Cellini owner not only implies that it is more than likely not your only watch (as explained above), but that you have ample opportunity to celebrate. Why? Because you must have some reason for wearing formal attire such as a tuxedo often enough to merit the purchase. Then again, it is possible to “dress down” a Rolex Cellini, but the question is “why?” That is especially important to ask when it comes to this Rolex Cellini Time with diamonds that is like a men’s equivalent of ball-gown jewelry. Is there a place for this watch with casual attire, or does that erode the very core personality which we associate with the most formal of dress watches?
It isn’t huge, but at 39mm wide, the Rolex Cellini is unapologetically modern in its stature. The 39mm in width is probably the new default size for men’s formal wear timepieces meant to work with sleeves and seamlessly integrate with any black-tie affair. This, of course, is best suited to the white gold versions of the Rolex Cellini while the 18k Everose takes on the role of something slightly louder given the color of the gold metal which is vastly more conspicuous that the more sober tone of white gold. Then again, add Rolex-standard diamonds to the bezel of this particular 50709 Rolex Cellini, and you increase the “noise” volume a bit more, allowing more people to notice your watch.
Diamonds on a watch are exclusively about attention. There is no other purpose for diamonds on a timepiece, and in many ways, there doesn’t need to be. Watches have comfortably been indicators of status and prestige since their invention hundreds of year ago. The best watches had decoration to prove as such, and today, that legacy continues with diamond-embellished dress watches like this. The row of stones around the bezel doesn’t add or subtract from the functionality, and all that you sacrifice here is the “mini” version of Rolex’s famed fluted bezel which has been made famous by the Datejust and Day Date collections and shows up in reduced form on the current generation of fake Rolex Cellini watches. Again, there is a version of the Rolex Cellini Time with both a row of smaller diamonds and an even more minimalized fluted bezel known as the Rolex Cellini 50609RBR (in 18k white gold with black dial), which in its own way attempts to offer the best of both worlds.
Rolex being Rolex, it doesn’t make it fair when choosing the most aesthetically appealing version of the Rolex Cellini Time because each of the available models has various pluses. I suppose I am specifically referring to the dial variations which have no clear winner, all being quite nice. On this Rolex Cellini 50709RBR we have all baton-style hour markers which are cut up to create an inner and outer dial. I do admit to missing the thin Roman numerals on the Rolex Cellini Time 50509 model (similar 18k white gold case with silver ruthenium dial but no diamonds).
Easily the hardest part of the new Rolex Cellini to design was the dial. Rolex was faced with the challenge of creating a minimalized look common for dress watches but with some elegant flare that people have come to expect from Rolex. Part of this design challenge was to present a minimalized watch face but one that doesn’t look empty. The result was a sort of dial within a dial, where the hands do not reach the edge of the main dial because the actual indication for the time is the inner one. This is an acceptable solution, and I agree that Rolex did succeed in making dials which have the right mixture of white space and details. With that said, I also find myself repeatedly asking, “are these hands too short?” even though I’ve responded to myself a number of times. The answer is actually no, the hands aren’t too short, but it really depends on where you draw the line of where the dial starts and stops.
Water resistant to 50 meters (don’t forget that Rolex Cellini models aren’t Rolex Oyster watches), the new Rolex Cellini timepieces have a lot more case durability than previous generation models – even if they aren’t Rolex sport watches. Inside the Rolex Cellini Time pieces are in-house made Rolex (and COSC Chronometer certified) calibre 3135 4Hz automatic movements which you will actually find in some Rolex sport watches including the Rolex Submariner. The caseback has a polished and domed center which reminds me of old pocket watches and helps give the Rolex Cellini collection a personality slightly different than that of many other Rolex watch families.
It can be said that the Rolex Cellini 50706BRB in 18k white gold and its sibling watch the Rolex Cellini 50705RBR in 18k Everose with a matching dial are very much “last-century watches,” recalling a time when formal galas and balls where perhaps more common (and that, therein, watches were an incredibly important part of a man’s attire). Today, this fact is perhaps still the case, although such events have been anything but democratized, existing almost exclusively for society’s elite. Rolex has always been a maker of luxury Rolex replica watchesfor the successful and inspired, but are Rolex timepieces for the most part “elite?” I would say “no” because Rolex has actually done an admirable job of being inclusive as a luxury brand versus exclusive, preferring not to segregate their consumer base.
With that said, I think the Rolex of today does have its status products for people of different groups depending on their station in life and interests. That is really where the Rolex Replica Cellini comes in because it fills a void Rolex had that other models such as the Datejust could not precisely fill. The Replica Rolex Cellini really is the niche Rolex because, while it is great at what it does, there is simply an arguably small demographic of people out there who have much opportunity to wear it. That is the truest with those models such as this diamond-decorated Replica Rolex Cellini ref. 50709RBR that comes with a retail price of 19,850 Euros.
The Rolex Prince is not only not terribly well known –even to Rolex aficionados –it’s almost shockingly unknown; in the days we had ours in for review, quite a lot of pretty hard-core fake Rolex US watches people saw it, and it was mistaken for . . . well, mistaken for just about everything but a Rolex. This is a kind of peculiar circumstance, especially for as immutable-tradition-is-a-virtue bunch as Rolex fans are supposed to be, because the Prince, in fact, goes back one hell of a lot further than any other existing Rolex model –the first Prince watches were made by Rolex all the way back in 1928, which is not that far off from the founding of the company in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf.
The Prince was, and is, a rectangular wristwatch, and the two first models –the famous 971 and 1343 watches –both used a rectangular movement made by Aegler, which supplied both Rolex and Gruen at the time. The movements used for the Prince watches were rectangular and designed to allow the use of a large mainspring barrel that supplied a better-than-two-day power reserve, and a relatively large balance. The original Princes also pre-date the general use of center seconds in wristwatches, but they do have a very large (relatively speaking) seconds sub-dial, which is what’s led to them sometimes being referred to as “doctor’s watches” (thanks to the relative ease the larger dial provides for such chores as timing respirations or pulse beats.)
The original Princes also pre-date the general use of center seconds in wrist Rolex replica watches, but they do have a very large (relatively speaking) seconds sub-dial, which is what’s led to them sometimes being referred to as “doctor’s watches” (thanks to the relative ease the larger dial provides for such chores as timing respirations or pulse beats.)
This basic formula –high-grade movement, rectangular case, and large sub-dial for the running seconds –is alive and well in the modern Prince collection (which sails under the Cellini flag; the full and proper name is Cellini Rolex Prince.) There are currently five models, all with the same basic design premise: rectangular case, prominent seconds sub-dial, and in each case, a distinct and clearly Art Deco influenced design motif. They’re good looking watches, if your tastes run to the patrician; these are not the tough, go-anywhere tool watches people usually associate with Rolex, but rather, drop-dead elegant dress watches that project, simultaneously, unapologetic luxury and a certain aristocratic disdain –if there were such a thing as a gentleman’s Guild of Assassins in the present day, the Guild Master might wear a Prince.
And, just as might be the case for an elegantly attired master of the art of ushering “clients” out of this vale of tears, the real muscle in the Prince watches is hidden from the casual observer. Turn the watch over, though, and you see it: the Rolex caliber 7040. Unlike most Rolex movements, this is a hand-wound caliber, and it is maybe one of the best-kept secrets in horology: it’s quite simply one of the most beautiful classic full-bridge Swiss movements made by anyone, anywhere right now. The hand-wound movement in modern Rolex Replica Cellini watchmaking is a bit of a dark horse –customers tend to prefer self-winding watches, all other things being equal –but if you want something that really captures the charm of the idiom, with an in-house shaped caliber especially, you don’t have all that many choices and one of them is the Prince caliber 7040. This is a 21 jewel, COSC certified chronometer caliber, with Breguet overcoil and with a 72 hour power reserve –very much in the tradition and solidly following in the footsteps of the original, high precision Prince “Doctor’s Watches” of the Deco era. One of the nicest touches and a very luxurious one, is that the finish of each movement matches the overall design motif of the particular Prince in which it is encased –so, for instance, Prince model in 18k white gold with “Godron Circulaire” that we had in for review has a movement –version 7040-3 –with corresponding circular motifs.
All this hifalutin’ talk of aristocratic disdain aside, this is just a plain fun watch to wear; winding it every day is exactly the small but keen personal pleasure it should be, thanks to the large, easily grasped crown and –as is always the case with Rolex –forbiddingly exact nature of its construction in general. It’s a substantial watch at 45mm x 29mm and you feel, for sure, like you are wearing a little ingot of gold on your wrist –because, well, you’re wearing a little ingot of gold on your wrist –but the experience is more one of reassuring solidity and the promise of comfortable, un-ostentatious prosperity than flash. In short, it’s every inch a gentleman’s, or gentlewoman’s, wristwatch, and while it unquestionably occupies a bit of a niche in Rolex’s lineup it is a distinguished one, with as much respectable history behind it as any true-blue Rolex lover could ask.
The Replica Cellini Rolex Prince: five models, two in Everose and two in white gold; additionally, one in white gold with diamond pavé dial. All models with a model-specific design motif and matching decorative motif on the movement. Movement, Rolex caliber 7040, hand-wound, chronometer certified with Paraflex shock system and Breguet overcoil, 72 hour power reserve. Cases in Rolex Everose, yellow gold, or white gold, 45mm x 29mm, water resistant to 50 meters. Pricing, $17,000 in white gold or Everose; $15,500 in yellow gold.
At every Baselworld, Rolex is always a highly anticipated and speculated brand, despite their patient, calculated updates and new models being extremely rare. While this has made Rolex a love/hate brand for many, with some seeing the brand as stale and old fashioned, other seeing their watches as perfect classics. At this year’s Baselworld, Rolex revealed a big surprise with a brand new collection. But not for their iconic Oyster Collection, but their lesser known Cellini Collection. The Cellini is a series of dressier, formal watches that don’t take advantage of Oyster case that made Rolex the most well-known luxury watch name in the world. While all new Rolex replica watches are essentially classics, the Cellini watches have gone for a purposefully vintage-inspired look, which seems to be a big trend this year. Lets take a look at the three Replica Rolex Cellini models below:
Replica Rolex Cellini Time
The first model is the clean and simple Rolex Replica Cellini Time with a three hand setup. The watch looks familiar from afar but more unique up close. It combines classical Rolex elements, such as a domed sapphire cover with a domed solid caseback. It introduces a double bezel, one rounded and one lightly fluted, giving it a subtle but distinctive flair. The watch case measures 39mm, a step up from the old Cellini, but still a traditional dress watch size. It’s available in either high-polish white gold or their exclusive Everose gold. The dial is comes in white or black lacquer or or embellished with black or silver-plating decorated with a “Rayon flamme de la gloire” guilloche motif. Inside is a certified chronometer and comes fitted with either a shiny black or brown alligator leather strap.
Replica Rolex Cellini Date
The next Replica Rolex Cellini Date is available in with the same options for case, dial and straps, but features an elegant date subdial.
Replica Rolex Cellini Dual Time
Also available in the same options as the original Time mode includes a dual time function. This Fake Rolex Cellini Dual Time model features an original second time zone subdial with an integrated day/night indicator at the 9 o’clock position, without loosing its classic good looks. It’s also available in the same options as the Time and Date models.Our Rolex replica watches shop for sale all kinds of watches,welcome to you come!
Rolex replica has for decades been the largest high end Swiss replica watches brand and produces far more than any other Swiss replica watchmaker. A fact that most people are aware of. But what’s not so well known is the fact that Rolex produces watches other than those of the famous Oyster models like the Submariner, Day Date, Explorer and Daytona, to name a few. To be fair of course, some will remember the gorgeous classic chronographs on leather straps and the rectangle Prince models, that came back into the collection, in a larger case and new mechanical movement.
The models that I was triggered by, during the last Basel World presentation, were the new Cellini’s. Now coming as a more serious dress replica Rolex watches in a gold, non-Oyster case on a leather strap with pin buckle and a classic looking dial. The Cellini collection is not that new, but the 2014 collection showed us three new models and all three in a choice of a white- or a pink gold 39mm case; The Cellini Time, Cellini Dual Time and the Cellini Date.
It is the Replica Rolex Cellini Date that grabbed me because normally I do not even look at a classic looking dress watch with a date window, since many brands usually cut a hole out to display it, spoiling the dial. Rolex designed it differently and let the date indication, occupy a large part of the dial and I am glad it does, since it is a beautiful and clear visual solution.
It proves that a date can make a dial very attractive, when it is done in a creative way! A splendid instrument to project yourself in time, this calendar displays on a single dial, the days gone by and days to come: yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Rolex used their self winding mechanical movement, COSC-certified chronometer with 48 hours power reserve. Like most fake Rolex watches, the back of the Cellini cases are closed, except for the Prince series.
The Cellini Date model is offered in two dial versions: with a black or silver dial featuring a “rayon flammé de la gloire” guilloche motif, all depending on your personal taste and style. Yet, no matter which dial you prefer, the Rolex Cellini is always classy and discreet.
It might not be recognized by your mother-in-law, but this mens Rolex replica watches will be a great companion through every moment in life; from a casual dinner with friends, to signing on that new, million dollar client, this Cellini is the Rolly that does it all!
Let’s face it, when we think of Rolex replica watches sale, iconic sports watches from the Oyster line like the Submariner and Daytona are what come to mind. What we certainly don’t think of are the brand’s more classical “dress watches” from the Cellini line. And yet, the Cellini collection represents the second half of Rolex’s offerings, though commercially they were never a hit. I think that’s about to change.
Earlier this year at Baselworld, Rolex introduced the world to its completely revamped Cellini line. Consisting of three different models, the Cell. The one that really caught my eye was the Cellini Dual Time, Rolex’s first-ever watch to feature a second timezone sub-dial (not to be confused with the GMT complication). Elegant yet modern, the Cellini Dual Time is a much needed breath of fresh air in the Cellini lines that boasts not only contemporary yet timeless aesthetics, but also an original take on a useful complication.
The round case in either “Everose” or white gold measures 39mm and is entirely polished, as a dress Replica Rolex Cellini watch should be. The bezel is done in two parts with a fluted edge and polished bezel, a little detail that is inherently Rolex, recalling not only the fluted bezels on the Datejust and DayDate models but also certain vintage references from as far back as the 1920s.
The dial is done in a strikibf radial sunburst guilloché pattern, with very pronounced grooves that can appear as stripes under direct lighting. The lance hands are faceted and polished, perfectly complimenting the applied hour markers.
What truly sets the Replica Rolex Cellini Dual Time apart from other Rolexes and dual time watches in general is the way the second timezone is executed. Featuring as an off-centered hours and minutes dial at 6 o’clock, the second time zone (or home time if you’re traveling) features one of the most ingenious day & night indicators I’ve seen on any fake Rolex watch. Replacing the 9 o’clock marker is a window displaying a sun from 6 AM to 6 PM that switches to a moon from 6 PM to 6 AM. I just love how it keeps the dial clutter-free, with the symbols adding a whimsical and charming touch to the watch.
On the wrist, the proportions feel just right. Thanks to its rounded edges and proportionately thick profile, the Cellini Dual Time wears more like a 41mm watch, and shouldn’t just be limited to suits and ties.
The Rolex Cellini Dual Time comes with a price tag of 18’500 CHF (Swiss Francs), and is now available at authorized Rolex retailers. The question I ask myself is, are the Cellini pieces like the Dual Time destined to outdo their lacklustre predecessors, or will Rolex remain strictly a sports Rolex replica watches manufacturer in our collective conscious? only time will tell.
