Vintage Rolex Cellini Watches
The Rolex Cellini has a rich history and is one of the rare Rolex lines with a design that has changed drastically over time. For years, most models have had the word “Cellini” written in cursive script on their dials—but not all.
However, like other Rolex lines, Cellini watches hold their value well on the secondary market, even when they are relatively old: in today’s market, any timepiece that dates from 1980 or before is considered vintage.
History Of Rolex Cellini
Named for Renaissance goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini, the “Cellini” does not refer to a particular model, but to a category of dress watches in a variety of shapes and sizes that hark back to the Rolex Prince, a model that debuted in the late 1920s.
During the 1960s and 1970s, when Rolex director René-Paul Jeanneret began to promote the idea that men and women should have a wardrobe of watches, the Cellini designation became identified with extravagant designs. Including the King Midas, which had the word MIDAS spelled out in Greek letters on the dial and quickly became notorious as the world’s heaviest gold watch with a weight of 200 grams (close to half a pound).
Over the years, some Cellini models have been self-winding and some have been manual; some have come with bracelets and some with leather straps. Today, current Rolex Cellini models include the Moonphase, Dual Time, Date, and Time.
