The Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic are exclusively crafted in 18K gold and the Cellini Date ref. 50519 is a white gold version with around 39 mm case and slim profile. The watch includes an intriguing double-style bezel, bringing together an interior smooth bezel surrounded by a decorative fluted bezel. Plus, to match the fluting on the bezel, the guard-less flared winding crown also features the familiar pleated texture.

Moving onto the dial, we see a continuation of the fluting motif by way of an intricate guilloche surface. Blue is a great dial color choice for the Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic since it adds some vibrancy to the timepiece, yet is still considered neutral enough to wear every day. The Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic features a playful take on the vintage-inspired sector style dial with its applied white gold hour markers, divided by an inner minute track ring. Also, rather than a simple date window, the Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic includes a date subdial at 3 o’clock with great effect.

To match the blue shade of the dial, this Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic comes fitted with a handsome blue leather strap attached to the elegantly tapered lugs. To secure the watch around your wrist, there is the white gold tang buckle topped with the Rolex coronet. Often times considered the most underrated watch from Rolex, bu the Cellini still holds its ground.

The Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic movement

Although the Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic does include a screw-down winding crown and a fluted case back similar to Oyster Perpetual watches, the water resistance rating is half the Op minimum at 50 meters. After all, this is not the timepiece to bring to the pool, shower, or beach.

Beneath that solid case back sits the in-house Rolex Caliber 3165 – a self-winding movement exclusive to the Cellini Date collection, This COSC-certified chronometer operates at a frequency of 28,000 beats per hour and offers a 48-hour power reserve.

With time-honored horology traditions like guilloche decorative techniques, a restrained case size, and the use of precious metals, the modern Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic line is assertively going after the formal dress watch category by competing with the likes of the Patek Calatrava, the Vacheron Patrimony, and the Piaget Altiplano. And if Rolex continues to release models as appealing as the Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic, it won’t be long until the currently overlooked Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic gets it a well-deserved moment in the spotlight.

The Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic dial, hand, and face

The Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic was introduced right from the beginning as an entire collection, including 3 watches, a simple time-only, a date and a dual-time. Considering the classical and restrained vocation of these watches, Rolex decided to start with 2 colors only, seems as essential for such a watch, opaline white and black, that could be mix in a choice of white gold or pink gold, with black – that could be mix in a choice of white gold and pink gold, with black or brown dial. Clearly not void of elegance, these early choices, however, remain traditional. You will now have a brown dial mixed with pink gold and blue dial mixed with white gold. 2 easy choices for sure, but in the end, it simply works.

The flagship edition of the Rolex Cellini collection, the Dual Time, will now be available with an easy but desirable configuration, playing on warm tones, a combination that Rolex uses for a few years now on the Day-Date and on the Sky-Dweller. Using the in-house Everose gold, the Rolex Cellini Blue Guilloche Dial Automatic adds some chocolate drown to it guilloche dial, with the iconic “Rayon Flamme de la Gloire” pattern. Hands and indexes are, of course, matching with the case. The alligator strap also plays with the same codes, as being made in dark brown leather. The watch itself remains untouched, with its Dual Time complication. For traveler’s watches, Rolex usually chose the GMT hand concept, but here, the display is different. A dub-dial at 6 indicated a second-time zone with two hands, the hour hand being independently adjustable by one-hour increments via the crown. It also features a day-and-night indication in a dedicated window.
