The Rolex Cellini: Classical Perfection on Your Wrist

The Rolex Cellini collection first caught the eye of watch lovers during its limited-edition launch in 1964. To uphold the luxury brand’s long tradition of perfection and excellence, Rolex adds a modern touch to the Cellini with its comeback in 2014. Pieces like the Rolex Cellini Dual Time received enough praise to warrant another launch in 2017. Each timepiece holds a domed sapphire crystal case, various leather straps, and a 48-hour power reserve.

For the latest Cellini addition, Rolex left their customers in awe with the watch company’s take on the moonphase watch trend. The Swiss company’s certified watchmakers built a timeless classic by combining the best quality materials with Rolex’s traditional dimensions. With its timeless round base measuring 39mm in diameter, the Rolex Cellini Moonphase watch features three watch readings in one timepiece. Those who purchased their own Cellini Moonphase can experience tracking time, date, and moon phases all at once.

How much does a Rolex Cellini watch cost?

Just like most Rolex watches, the Rolex Cellini collection offers extravagant timepieces that reach a price range of approximately $27,000 USD. If you include the earlier or pre-owned models, interested buyers must prepare a wide budget of $4,500 USD to $27,000 USD. With this, the Rolex Cellini design stays true to Benvenuto Cellini, the Italian Renaissance artist that the collection was named after.

Among the pieces that are still available on the market, the current bestseller from the collection is the Rolex Cellini Moonphase watch. Since it was released in 2017, the Cellini Moonphase costs more than the other timepieces in the collection. Additionally, pre-owned pieces found online sometimes go higher than the suggested retail price. However, it’s retail price currently costs about $26,750 USD.

Another accessible Cellini timepiece is the Rolex Cellini Time watch. Just as its name suggests, the Cellini Time is the simplest model among the Rolex dress watches displayed in the selection. With an estimated price tag of about $12,899 USD, the traditional design still captures and showcases the grandeur that the luxury brand is known for. Pre-loved models are usually sold at around $10,000 USD to $11,500 USD.

Finally, the Rolex Cellini Date watch is the last model that the luxury brand still produces. For around $17,900 USD, you can have your own Cellini Date timepiece by buying from Rolex’s stores or registered retailers. You can also purchase pre-owned versions from online shops for as low as $14,500 USD. While you’re browsing, you might encounter other Cellini watches like the Rolex Cellini Prince and the Rolex Cellini Dual Time. Those earlier Cellini watches range between $4,500 USD and $20,000 USD in online retailers and shopping sites. Unfortunately, these models are now unavailable on Rolex’s official website, hence its absence in most of the luxury brand’s store displays.

Vintage Rolex Cellini — Is it a good investment?

Choosing to invest in the Rolex Cellini collection is a wise choice simply because of the luxury brand’s household name. The mere mention of the Rolex brand adds additional value to the company’s famous timepieces on every appraisal. The classical elegance of the Rolex Cellini showcases various innovations that blend with the collection’s modern design. With this, Rolex assures interested buyers with the best quality of dress watches that they can add to any outfit they please.

First-time interested buyers of Rolex Swiss watches must include at least one of the Rolex Cellini pieces in their options. Among all the watches featured, the Rolex Cellini Moonphase timepiece is one of the top picks of watch enthusiasts. Plus, the popular piece is Rolex’s latest moonphase model release since the 1950s.

The Rolex Cellini’s In-house Oyster Perpetual Movement

Enclosed inside a water-resistance case, Rolex’s signature Oyster Perpetual movement guarantees its wearer with one of the best watchmaking mechanisms in the world. With its own set of special tools, equipping the luxury brand watches with the Perpetual movement can only be done with Rolex-certified watchmakers. The self-winding mechanism incorporated into the Perpetual movement holds chronometers with certification from the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). 

History Behind the Rolex Cellini Watch

In 1964, Rolex launched 1,000 limited-edition pieces that included the first Rolex Cellini. To uphold the company’s goal of perfecting every timepiece, the Rolex Cellini collection eventually included the classic designs of the Cellini Prince and the Cellini Danaos. The sizes of these earlier pieces are much smaller compared to the fixed 39mm diameter of the recent Cellini watches.

During the collection’s early years, watch enthusiasts often overlooked the traditional watchmaking incorporated into the Rolex Cellini timepieces. Because of this, the display became underrated and failed to produce a large following like most of Rolex’s beloved collections. Fortunately, things took a brighter turn when the Swiss luxury brand added more contemporary designs to the Rolex Cellini Collection. 

To keep up with other well-received collections, Rolex added the Rolex Cellini Moonphase model to the underrated selection. The new addition aimed to show off a more on-trend style combined with three different time readings. Watch enthusiasts can experience tracking the time, the date, and the current moon phase all at once with the Cellini Moonphase watch. The company then focused on a simpler approach by matching the Cellini Moonphase with the Cellini Date and the Cellini Time pieces.
