The least Rolex of Rolexes, the least Cellini of Cellinis

When you think of Rolex, the models that come to mind most easily are the Submariner (Aquaman) and the Daikin Law Day-date. …….. They all have self-winding movements and Oyster waterproof cases. The other GMT, Skywalker, Explorer and other series are also more or less related to them, and thus many people say that Rolex ” The same old, same old, nothing new”.

The Ref.50535 is the latest generation of the Rolex Cellini.

In fact, replica Rolex Cellini watches has a distinctive “Cellini” collection that is not widely known, and is also known as the “least Rolex of Rolexes”.

Most watch lovers have the impression that Rolex is a “stable” brand. But in fact, for a long time, Rolex and other watch brands, are like to give money to make watches, what? All sorts of messy, weird and unbelievable models were produced. For example, this interval rose gold water resistant watch made for the South American dealer Serpico y Laino in the 1930s …….

The Ref.50535 is the latest generation of the Rolex Cellini.

And Rolex saw a major turnaround in the brand’s history in 1953, the year Sir Edmund Hillary (Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay are the first two… The explorer who climbed the world’s highest peaks. Rolex commemorated this event with the launch of the Explorer in 1953, which led to the creation of the “Explorer” collection. A new era of “tool watches” begins.

1953, Explorer; 1953, Aquaman; 1955, Greenwich GMT; 1956. Milguass; 1960, Deep Sea Special…. With the success of the “tool watch”, Rene-Paul Jeanneret, then marketing director of Rolex, began to The idea of creating a watch that would be more appropriate for a grand formal event led to the launch of the “Cellini” in the early 1960s. Cellini Collection. The name comes from Cellini, the famous Italian Renaissance sculptor of the 16th century.

The Ref.50535 is the latest generation of the Rolex Cellini.

The “Cellini” collection was created for banquets and events, much like a Piaget watch, but with a lighter model, with an emphasis on Exterior design. As a result, most of the Cellini models have manual movements and non-Oyster water-resistant cases in order to reduce size and thickness.

The success of Rolex today must be attributed to two of its most important technologies: oyster water resistance and the constant-force movement. The Cellini collection, however, has never adopted these two technologies and has therefore been unpopular with the market since its inception. The sought-after, long-sought after.

In 2014, Rolex released the new Cellini series, while retaining the original intention of the formal watch, the unprecedented use of locking water-resistant case + automatic winding design.

It is important to note that although the Cellini now has a water resistant case with a water resistant locking handle, it is not a Rolex. The iconic Oyster waterproof case. Because Rolex currently defines an Oyster case as being water resistant to a depth of 100 meters, and this Cellini is only 50 meters.

But even if it’s only 50 meters, with a locking handle, there’s no problem washing hands or running cold water in basic daily use. It’s a lot more convenient than the old Cellini before it. At the same time, this generation of Cellini still adopts the brand’s signature tight-bottom design, and you can’t see the home-made Cal.3195 self-winding mechanical movement. The back cover is slightly arched and has the feel of an antique Rolex bubble back.

The most unique feature of the Cal.3195 is not its water resistance and automatic winding, but the fact that it has a moon phase function. Rolex in its long 112 years of brand history, only three models with the moon phase function of the watch, which are Ref. 8171, Ref. 6062 and this Ref. 50535. since the last time Rolex introduced a moon phase. It has been nearly 70 years.

Unlike the previous moon phases, this Ref. 50535 is even more refined and luxurious. The moon phase disc is made from a single piece of blue enamel that has been fired at 800° Celsius, making it dense and hard. The full moon is also made of natural meteorite. The triangular markers in the centre of the dial show the moon’s profit and loss by comparison.

Unlike moon phase watches designed by other brands, the moon phase of the Rolex Ref. 50535 is much more than just a viewing device. Practical Features. Because its moon phase can be read accurately except during the full and dark moons, the other days are left to guess. The purpose of this design is to maximize the beauty of the enamel and meteorite moon phase craftsmanship.
