Ladies Rolex Watches Leather Band
An immortal classic, the latest Ladies’ Watch of the Week to be featured is this timeless Rolex Cellini watch. A sub-brand from Rolex, Cellini timepieces were typically fashioned from precious metals and originated in 1975. Easily identified by their excessively thin profile, Cellini watches are invariably the centre of attention within whatever gathering they frequent. Most Cellini watches were unveiled with a groundbreaking square dial that helped to liberate the world of watchmaking from a rigid adherence to a round form, although this classic ladies Cellini has nonetheless returned to a smoothly traditional circular figure.
The ‘Cellini’ name was adopted as an act of homage to Benvenuto Cellini, a renowned Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith to popes and kings, and an influential member of the Mannerism movement that saw its inception at the hands of such iconic artisans as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo. Despite this daunting heritage, the master whose name each Cellini watch bears would not be disappointed with Rolex’s efforts in his name. Each and every Rolex watch has been fashioned with the utmost attention to technological excellence and breathtaking artistry, and a Cellini watch is truly worthy of one of the esteemed clients of its Renaissance namesake.
The Cellini family has always placed a special emphasis upon elegant design and a superb sense of dress, and this unforgettable Cellini watch is a glittering example of that trend. The case is created from a warm 18 carat lustre polished gold, and this choice of material is repeated upon the pin buckle of the crocodile leather strap. This bracelet has also been perfectly optimised to achieve aesthetical perfection, as its patterned light brown colouration lends the entire timepiece an air of opulence that lives up to its unmatched heritage. Completed with an ivory dial and burnished gold Roman numerals that serve as hour indexes, this Cellini could have easily stepped straight out of the Renaissance years themselves.
Whilst the dial of the Cellini measures in at 24 mm without its styled crown, its height is a truly astonishing 5 mm; a consideration which enables it to undeniably fulfill Rolex’s branding of the Cellini family as the ‘quintessence of elegance’. With a full guarantee and a specially treated scratch-resistant sapphire glass crystal, this ladies’ Cellini has also been equipped to retain its sumptuous aesthetics for the maximum possible timeframe. The Cellini is certainly not a case of style over substance though, as the inner workings of this wristwatch have also been treated to all due care and concentration.
