Rolex Cellini (New Versions of Cellini Time, Cellini Date and Cellini Dual Time)

At Baselworld 2016, Rolex has unveiled new versions of its Cellini Time, Cellini Date and Cellini Dual Time in 18 ct white or Everose gold in a 39 mm case.

The Cellini collection celebrates the eternal elegance of traditional timepieces with a contemporary touch. The essence of a timeless classic, the Cellini Time displays simply the hours, minutes and seconds, as if nothing but the present were of importance. The Cellini Date adds a date display suffused with elegance, tradition and poetry, showing on a single dial the current day, the days gone by and the days to come. The Cellini Dual Time, with its simultaneous display of the time here and the time elsewhere, grants its wearers the gift of temporal ubiquity.
All the Cellini models are covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that the watches have successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, which exceed watchmaking norms and standards.
The certification applies to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, water-proofness and self­winding. The precision of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer after casing is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer. The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five year guarantee.
The new Cellini Time models feature a redesigned white lacquer dial with 12 elongated applique hour markers. The Cellini Date acquires a blue dial and strap, and the Cellini Dual Time range is expanded by a version with a brown dial and strap.
The Cellini models are driven by a self­winding mechanical movement manufactured entirely by Rolex. They carry the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist.
