As I pointed out at the beginning of the guide, the Cellini family appeared to disrupt their long jumps with brand new models that contain exceptionally important updates. Even in a concept that isn’t open to newness such as a “dress watch”, and doesn’t offer you a lot of choices concerning layout, Rolex deserves praise for its innovative and aesthetic novelties.We want to thank the Rhodium Family for giving us the chance to assess the newest Rolex Cellini collection.Next up is the Cellini date. This model is introduced in white gold, and it’s not got another name because white gold doesn’t fade. There is a gorgeous lustre to this timepiece as it’s the probably the funniest opinion at the scope, mostly due to the prim white gold but also due to the guilloche dial. Then at 3 O’Clock there’s the rotary date indicator, it is a very simple affair showing just odd numbers with an easy stick hand, as opposed to utilizing the identical shape hands as the minutes and hours. I must explain how Rolex works when it comes to materials, research and parts. Rolex has its own treatment plant where it requires silver and gold ore and procedures it until it fulfills the requirements Rolex demands. That’s right, unlike most other businesses in the industry Rolex procedures all its metals. This means they don’t have to share the recipes used to make materials like Everose gold. There are four major crops to Rolex, with three in the same city. The main headquarters is located in Acacias in Geneva. This is where the management of the business is, the aftercare division is located there as well as final assembly and testing. It’s the main hub for Rolex operations anyplace. Then there’s Plan-Les-Ouates which is also in Geneva. Plan-Les-Ouates is the website I mentioned previously.
It’s the biggest of the websites and is made of six blocks linked with a central corridor system. Chên Bourg is accountable for the dials utilized by Rolex. Those guilloche dials on the Cellini, the mill diamond dials around the DateJust are all made here. Chên Bourg can also be responsible for jewel setting. Rolex secretly resources all its diamonds and gems, all of which are scrutinized, to weed out fakes and choose exactly what will be cut. It is estimated that there might be up to two fake stones delivered to Rolex every 5 years that’s remarkable work really. The last plant is currently in Bienne, which is not in Geneva. More than 2000 individuals work here producing the movements that power all the watches. Each of the components are manufactured here (not in China as some rumours suggest), constructed here and pre-COSC tested here. It is all done by hand in a remarkable pace.The last piece today is your Cellini dual time. This model can be encased in white gold, but it’s got a black guilloche dial rather than a silver dial. You’ll discover this bit is exactly what you need if you would like to mix in the most when wearing a suit. It is not brash, it does not shove people out of the way to be the very first to the buffet, but rather it glides silently out from below a cuff once the time needs reading, even though it can be viewed as the absolute height of rudeness to look at the watch when at a top apparel occasion. The ones that go can manage to use the whole night doing what they enjoy and having a good time after all.The double time, is as its name implies a double time piece. Which means it is likely going to be used most for travelling. You will discover that, like the Cellini date, the double time could be corrected using the crown, so pulling it out to a certain position will allow you to accurately set the minutes and hours to whatever time takes your fancy.
The Cellini Day dials are genuinely eye-catching with a combined amount of simple class and also performance. It is a fancy outfit watch which may fit sportswear or tuxedo-style official.As I’m allergic so far windows which break the symmetry of the dial, are too small to be practical, or which are included just because a third-party movement includes the date function, this watch may only make me happy. With Cellini, Rolex enables you to choose whether to have a date indication in your watch or not. What is more, in the case of this Cellini Date it’s not the usual date window, but a subdial, so that even though the amounts are small, you can glance at the watch and you’ve got a general idea of where you’re in the month. I look at it and think, “Oh no, I must be pretty near the anniversary, I’d better begin looking for a present.” Apart from the date, the opinion is similar to this Cellini Time, together with 39 millimeter instance in white stone, approximately 11 mm thick, slightly domed caseback, and a water resistance of 50 metres. In the case is a self-winding mechanical motion designed and built by Rolex, using a Parachrom antimagnetic hairspring, a balance running at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hertz), and 48 hours power reserve. The opinion is provided with Rolex’s Superlative Chronometer certificate, which offers a precision of +2/-2 seconds deviation per day, in addition to other evaluations on electricity reserve, precision in various positions, and water resistance. Each movement is also tested for precision by COSC.The dial has sunray guilloché that matches the fluting on the bezel and crown. The guilloché is disrupted for the moments signs ring and also for the ring of numbers on the date subdial.
Each of the dial colours can be obtained with the 18k white or Everose gold (a distinctive 18k rose gold metal that Rolex leaves) instance, which provides a welcome variety and degree of consumer choice. In fact, with three distinct Rolex Cellini versions, each forthcoming in distinct case materials and dial colours, Rolex has launched a total of 12 brand new Cellini versions for 2014. That’s in fact quite a bit if you think about how gradually Rolex normally releases new versions and adds variations to present collections.Our sentiments about the size of the palms on the Rolex Cellini versions stay as the dual row of hour mark makes the palms feel a bit too brief. Nonetheless, the dials are appealing and mix a level of simple sophistication with mature class and style. The off-center date dial offers a new look for the brand, and provides a fresh way to tell the date even if it isn’t only speaking as convenient as an electronic date window.Going straight back to my original question of who this watch is aimed at satisfying, I think I have some suggestions. As we stated when we initially released the Rolex Cellini Time version, Rolex is intent on supplying a tuxedo-style formal view in a distance that they have previously not had a lot to offer. Rolex is taking on a few of the contest accessible brands in teams such as Swatch or Richemont who more or less have dominated when it comes to formal watch apparel until now. Rolex’s sheer market power and accessibility will create the Cellini model a strong competitor for those looking to own a really “classic” wrist watch. We’ll observe how Rolex continues to develop in this region in the years to come.
All the bracelets and cases are processed from raw material, formed into shape and then assembled into their final design here. It is the largest of those sites and is made of six cubes connected together by a central corridor system. Next is Chên Bourg, that is, you guessed it, in Geneva. Chên Bourg is responsible for the dials utilized by Rolex. Those guilloche dials on the Cellini, the factory diamond dials around the DateJust are made here. Chên Bourg can also be responsible for gem setting. Rolex secretly sources all its diamonds and diamonds, all which are inspected, to weed out fakes and choose what will be cut. It’s estimated that there might be up to 2 fake gems sent to Rolex each 5 years that’s remarkable work indeed. The last plant is in Bienne, which is not in Geneva. More than 2000 people work here producing the moves that power all of the watches. All the components are fabricated here (not in China as some rumours indicate), assembled here and then pre-COSC tested here. It’s all done by hand in a remarkable pace.The last bit now is the Cellini double moment. This model is also encased in white gold, but it’s got a black guilloche dial rather than a silver dial. You’ll find this bit is what you want if you would like to blend in the most when wearing a suit. It’s not brash, it doesn’t shove people out of the way to be the very first to the buffet, but rather it slips silently out from under a cuff once the time needs reading, though it can be viewed as the absolute height of rudeness to check at one’s watch when at a top dress event. The ones that go can manage to utilize the whole night doing exactly what they enjoy and having a good time after all.The double time, is as the name implies a dual time piece. You’ll discover that, like the Cellini date, the dual time could be adjusted using the crown, so pulling it out to a certain position will allow you to accurately set the minutes and hours to whatever time takes your fancy.
The new Cellini set, which was introduced at Baselworld 2014, changed the destiny of the version family as we know it. Designed with a contemporary case diameter of 39mm, the brand new series brings together technical characteristics that can be considered outstanding for Rolex, in addition to a fully revised dial and a pair of hands.The other Cellini version is the recently added blue dial variation called the Cellini Date. The model is introduced in an 18K white gold case measuring 39mm in diameter and a gorgeous blue dial configuration. After the theme is Rolex, the blue dials have their own places … Widely called all the yellowish Rolesor (stainless steel / 18K yellow gold in the Rolex lingo) Submariner version, blue dial Rolex models achieved its own fan group over time. The blue dial, showing color changes according to the angle of lighting, is accompanied by 18K hands and indices.In the specialized awareness, the date feature, that’s the only additional feature, is prepared in precisely the same infrastructure as the previous versions, and is shown in another lower screen with a pointer instead of the customary window layout. This stylish screen, which adds a special atmosphere to the dress watch versions, obviously looks pretty neat from the Cellini Date model.The model is powered with the in-house Caliber Ref.3165.
