HIGHLY COMMENDED: Luxury Watches of the Year, Rolex Cellini Date


The way the detail of the Cellini slowly reveals itself is our favourite feature of this classic three-hand dress watch.

As the world around us becomes ever-more complex, the clean, timeless design of the 39mm white or yellow gold case ooze reassurance.

The white dial on white gold is a particular favourite with white gold appliqué hour markers and hands, but variations in black, rose and rhodium are also available.

Each houses the Rolex-made calibre 3132 COSC-certified mechanical movement that will run for 48 hours if the bi-directional winder isn’t moved.

There is nowhere to hide the slightest imperfection with a Cellini. As Rolex describes it: the lines are sober and refined, the materials noble, the finishings luxurious: every detail respects the codes of the art of watchmaking.

Prices range from £11,200 up to £16,850 if you break with tradition and go with diamonds set into the bezel.
