Rolex adds new model to its Cellini collection
Luxury is not necessarily equated with brand, it’s equated with attention to detail, minuscule details that make something, well extra…That’s the Rolex Cellini collection and here is one new arrival!
Rolex is introducing a new model in its Cellini collection, the Cellini Moonphase, featuring an exclusive display of the lunar cycle. The 39 mm Cellini Moonphase is offered in 18 ct Everose gold.
The Cellini Moonphase has a white lacquer dial with a blue enamelled disc at 6 o’clock showing the full moon and the new moon, the former depicted by a meteorite applique and the latter by a silver ring. The moonphase is read via the indicator set at 12 o’clock on the subdial, as the full moon and new moon rotate through the lunar cycle.
The Cellini Moonphase also displays the date around the circumference of the dial, via a centre hand with a crescent moon at its tip. This new model is driven by a self-winding mechanical movement entirely manufac-tured by Rolex, whose patented moonphase module is astronomically accurate for 122 years. The Cellini Moonphase is fitted on a brown alligator leather strap with a folding Crownclasp in 18 ct Everose gold, a first for a Cellini model.
THE CLASSICAL WATCH BY ROLEX
The Cellini collection celebrates the eternal elegance of traditional timepieces with a contemporary touch. It combines Rolex’s high standards of perfection with an approach that heightens watchmaking heritage in its most timeless form. The lines are sober and refined, the materials noble, the finishings meticulous. Every detail respects the codes of the art of watchmaking.
SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER CERTIFICATION
Like all Rolex watches, the new Cellini Moonphase is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that the watch has 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, waterproofness and self-winding. 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.
