Rolex Cellini is an adult dress watch

What kind of model do you think of when you think of Rolex Cellini?

Maybe most people can't answer right away.

It's a line that is not so well known in Rolex, but Cellini has many cool models that can't be helped without introducing it as a dress watch.

The Cellini line that started in the late 1920s.

Cellini does not use the Rolex synonym "Oyster Case".

Cellini is basically made of materials such as 18K GOLD / WHITE GOLD and platinum, and the edges and thickness of the case are thin.

As a result of pursuing the conditions and added value required for a dress watch, instead of a highly waterproof case, a movement pursuing thinness in a case valuable as a precious metal such as solid gold or platinum, and insisted. It became a simple design that is not too much.

That is the characteristic of Cellini.

In Japan, the name "Cerini" is used, but overseas, it is not possible to say "Selini". (This is legume information)

The name "Cerini" comes from the 16th century Italian Renaissance engraver Benvenuto Cellini.

This Benvenuto Cellini is famous as a sculptor and painter. He lived in the same age as Michelangelo and was on good terms.

The fact that this Cellini is the only one in the Rolex collection that has the name of a particular person means that this Cellini has a unique standing position.

Also, let's stick to the fact that the movement is only one that contains a hand-wound Rolex movement. (Current model has automatic winding)

Only the dress watch has no second hand and only two hands, a minute hand and an hour hand, which are called two hands.

Some designs don't even have an index (scale) that represents time.

This is the ultimate dress watch, isn't it? The reason why there is no

index is that it is positioned as a complete accessory so that it will not be received if you care about time at a party.


Let's take a look at the Rolex Cellini model.

ROLEX Cellini 3833 18K WG 1960s

Ref: 3833
Serial: 302xxxx
Year: 1967
Movement: Manual Cal.1600
Case: 31mm
Material: White Gold
Strap: 19mm

18K white gold is used for the case.

It's so simple that it's too simple with only a thin bar hand on the white Roman dial, but the upright crown is an accent.

Upright crown logo. It's laborious and costly, but it's a big difference with and without it.


ROLEX Cellini 4135 18K WG 1990s

Cellini, the ultimate Rolex dress line. Made in 1995.

A rare combination of a rectangular 18K white gold case and a navy dial, which is elegant and stylish.

Year: 1995

ROLEX Cellini Silver Dial 18K YG 1970s

It's very simple with only a thin bar hand on a silver dial with a beautiful radial finish called sunburst finish.

A stylish design with a silver Roman dial in an 18K yellow gold case.

ROLEX Cellini 4112 18K YG 1990s

18K yellow gold case with gold Roman dial is elegant ◎

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 4112
Serial: W02xxxx
Year: 1995
Movement: Manual Cal.1602
Case: 31mm (excluding crown) < br> Material: 18K Yellow Gold

Very simple with only a thin bar hand on the champagne color dial that becomes a gradation with the case.

However, the upright Roman index accentuates the design, and it has a strong presence when exposed to light.


ROLEX Cellini 3803 White Dial YG 1970s

A neat design with a white dial and black print on a curved vertical YG case that looks like an oval.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 3803
Serial: 256xxxx
Year: 1971
Movement: Manual Cal.1600
Case: 23x32mm
Material: 18K YG

The Roman numeral index gives a strong impression that it is a dress watch. The simplicity of the bar index is also good, but there may be a stylish feeling here.

The expression of the white dial changes depending on the angle, such as looking pure white or slightly dull.

I think the size is ladies' size.


ROLEX Cellini 4103 Rectangle YG 1970s

Rectangle (rectangular) YG case with a rather thick edge. The case has a trapezoidal shape when viewed from the side, which is a rare design for Cellini, who feels a little thick.

The dial is a champagne gold color that is the same color as the case and has a sunburst finish with radial lines, so the color depth changes depending on the viewing angle and it looks like a gradation.

The Roman numeral index gives a strong impression of a dress watch. If you don't look closely, you won't notice it, but the notation at 4 o'clock is "IIII" instead of "IV".

It is a notation that is not normally used, but it is not a misprint, but a notation peculiar to the clock face. Not only Rolex, but also Cartier, Lange & Söhne, and many other manufacturers have the same notation.

There are various theories as to the reason, but it seems that no conclusion has been reached as to which theory is correct. It's like seven mysteries.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 4103
Serial: 422xxxx
Year: 1974
Movement: Manual Cal.1600
Case: 23 × 30.5mm
> Material: 18K YG

The simple black bar hand is quite short, and it's long enough not to overlap the crown logo, so it's nice to have the upright logo claiming it.

The size is similar to the mast tank LM, so it is basically a men's size, but I think that women can use it without any discomfort.


ROLEX Cellini 4103 Rectangle YG Black Dial 1970s

Rectangle (rectangular) YG case with a rather thick edge.

The case has a trapezoidal shape when viewed from the side, which is a rare design for Cellini, which feels a little thick.

Yellow gold crown logo and gold letter.

If you look closely, the characters are exciting.

The dial is glossy black and has a minimalist design with no index display. It's a dial called a dress watch.

The finish on the corners of the case is luxurious. It may be unique to vintage Cellini that there is such a design and finish.

The black dial has an onyx-like atmosphere, but if you look closely, it has a striped pattern, which makes you feel casual and stylish.

The size is about the same as Cartier's mast tank LM, and it's about 16.5 cm around the arm and it's about this size.


ROLEX Cellini 3603 Rectangle WG

This watch looks like a square at first glance, but it is a rectangular case with a slightly longer vertical length. The material is 18K WG.

The dial is silver, which is the same color as the case, and has a sunburst finish with radial lines, so the color depth changes depending on the viewing angle and it looks like a gradation.

As for the feeling of size, it is a vintage men's size similar to the LM size of Cartier's mast tank.

I think it's close to the current ladies' size.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 3603
Year: 1960s
Movement: Manual Cal.1600
Case: 24x27mm (Without Crown)
Material: 18K WG


ROLEX Cellini 3833 WG Gray Dial 1970s

This model has a fashionable white gold case with gray dial and white indexes and needle coloring.

Pay attention to the index and hands. It's also interesting to see Cellini having a watch with such an unusual finish.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 3833
Serial: 302xxxx
Year: 1971
Movement: Manual Cal.1600
Case: 31mm
Material: 18K WG


ROLEX Cellini 4112 WG Roman Dial 1990s

The case is made of 18K white gold and has a very narrow edge design.

The point is that it looks like a stainless steel case at first glance, and although it is gold, it is not unpleasant.

Solid gold buckle. The number "750" is engraved on the right, which is a proof of innocence.

This buckle alone is worth tens of thousands of yen.

Applied crown logo and Roman numeral index.

A thin bar hand on a silver dial with a sunburst finish is simple and good.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 4112
Serial: W03xxx
Year: 1994/95
Movement: Manual Cal.1602
Case: 31mm (excluding crown) )
Material: 18K WG

If you change the leather belt to a bran color, the atmosphere will change again.

The upright Roman index is an accent.


ROLEX Cellini 3804 WG Navy Dial 1970s

18K white gold is used for the case, and the case shape is a curved design with an integrated lug part

The dial is a navy color that gradually darkens with gradation from the center and is quite cool.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 3804
Serial: 425xxxx
Year: 1974
Movement: Manual Cal.1601
Case: 31mm (excluding crown) < br> Material: 18K WG

Although it is a round case, the shaped design gives a soft impression.

I think it's a good idea to wear a navy leather belt with white stitching.


ROLEX Cellini 4122 YG Mahogany Dial 1980s

A very unusual design with a hexagonal case shape.

There are some typical models of octagonal cases, but hexagonal cases are rarely seen because there was a type called hexagon case in the watch called Da Vinci of IWC.

Looking at the back side, the shape of the case is easy to understand.

Although it has a strange case design, Rolex is not eccentric and has a luxurious feel.

Applied crown logo

Mahogany dial. The attempt to use such a natural material for the dial is amazing. The use of natural materials for the dial is unique to highly jewelery models.

Since the grain of wood differs depending on the individual, it is a unique watch.

Brand: ROLEX
Model: Cellini
Ref: 4122
Serial: 43xxxxx
Year: 1980
Movement: Manual Cal.1601
Case: 23x30mm (including lugs) < br> Material: 18K YG


ROLEX Cellini 5112 WG Gray Dial 1990s

Cellini has many combinations, but the gray dial is rare.

Although it is pure gold, I do not feel disliked because there are very few parts that can be seen when I put it on my arm.

The index of this Roman numeral is irresistible.

Depending on the angle, the color may look gray or navy.

Model: Cellini
Ref: 5112
Serial: E46xxxx
Year: 1990
Movement: Manual Cal.1602
Case: 31mm (excluding crown)
Material: 18K YG

It's a watch for adults.


There are still various models of Rolex Cellini other than this. This time, we introduced the ones handled by Albitro. Did you find a model that you were interested in, including the size and balance when you put it on?

I often hear people say that Rolex had such a watch, probably because the model itself, Cellini, is not very well known. If you bring this charm of Rolex Cellini before the world is aware of it, you may become a true fashionable person.

It is also recommended for those who simply do not want to wear it with people. The value of the Rolex brand, the good design, and the affordable price. Everything is balanced. I think it's a watch that doesn't hurt in terms of asset value.

If you are looking for a dress watch for adults, please give Cellini a candidate. Rolex Cellini is Arbitro's favorite item.
