Today, we'll be talking about the Rolex Cellini Date in 18 karat white gold and a bright blue guilloche dial with a double bezel on a black alligator leather strap, model number 50519. This is certainly an interesting time piece. Its namesake was inspired by the Italian Renaissance artist, Benvenuto Cellini, who is known for pieces such as the "Cellini Salt Cellar" and "Perseus with the Head of Medusa" and Rolex started a line of dress watches named after him as early as 1928, soon discontinued thereafter, and started back up in the '80s. Quite an interesting timepiece with quite a story to history. I'm not going to go over all the finer points of this because a lot has changed with this timepiece. So there are only several different models in the modern day, starting with the Cellini Time, which only shows the time, much like say, an Oyster Perpetual only shows time with an hour, minute and second hand. The next step up would be this one, the Cellini Date, which also shows a date dial at the three o'clock position. The dual time as well, has a second time dial at the six o'clock position instead of date at the three o'clock position. If you want to keep track of time and a second time zone, that would be the model for you. A Cellini Moonphase also shows the phases of the moon, also in its own dial at the six o'clock position. All right, and in typical Rolex fashion, there are a number of different dial colors and configurations to give you really, a myriad of different options based on personal preference. But the things that remain the same are effectively, the case size, the double bezels, water resistance, the fact that they're all made with precious metals and come with alligator leather straps. All right, now, if you're not really familiar with Rolex, this'll probably look like just any other watch, but if you've been paying attention to Rolex for even just a few months, you'll notice that the Cellini shares actually very little with all the other watches in their lineup. With that said, we'll take a look at this specific model and try and make sense of where it fits within Rolex's collection. All right, so if the case size for this watch is 35 millimeters in diameter, hard to believe, but that's what it really is from finger to thumb. It is only 11 millimeters thick with a 45 millimeter measurement from lug to lug. It's made with 18 karat white gold throughout from lug to lug the entire case, the backing, the bezels, as well as the index markers and all of it with a high polished finish. There's not a single part on this that has any satin or brushing to it, giving that really, really nice, beautiful luster and look to it. All right. And the bezels on this case are actually quite interesting. Now notice I said bezels, not a single of bezel. That's because there is-- Rolex typically uses just one bezel per watch type, but this one contains a fluted bezel on the outside with very small grooves that more closely matched that of say, like a freshly minted quarter, given its size and proportions, and an inner domed bezel right above that, which meets the sapphire crystal. Also note that this sapphire crystal, if you've been paying attention to how it plays in the light is actually domed. A little bit hard to see in this light box, but it just doesn't reflect light in the same way that other flat Rolex sapphire crystals do and I think this is actually quite an advantage for this model because it really gives you different lighting patterns based on your angle. Now see this light at the top is actually just a straight strip of LEDs, but as I move it up and down, you can actually see different bowing mechanics of that light because of that domed bezel and that's quite a really interesting and very nice lighting dynamic there. All right. So now, also note that the case back is also actually domed. If you can see my reflection in the back, it has that very convex shape, much like you know, when you're driving through a parking garage almost. Very interesting case back with also the very, very small fluting for the teeth, for the tightening of that case, to ensure that water resistance. The white resistance on this model is actually only 50 meters under water. So honestly, it's not for sport. It's not really for, you know, swimming all that much. You know, occasionally, you know, you can be in the rain, you can wash your hands with it, definitely wash your hands for at least 30 seconds every time, but honestly, you know, it's not for sport. This is a dress watch and looking at it that really shows. All right, the crown also has this really flared look to it. Unlike typical Rolex crowns that are just simply, they just come out and they're barrel shaped, this one actually flares outward a bit. See if I can zoom in there and you can really see that. You see the outward flare that goes up and then very nicely comes to the top with that Rolex crown logo. Very interesting design choice there. All right, so now the dial on this model is the bright blue guilloche, which basically means that they're repetitive patterns at an intersecting point. In this case, at the center of the dial. The hour marks are exceptionally long compared to other Rolex models and are actually bisected right in the middle by this minute track that is conveniently placed closer to the tips of the hands. If you've noticed the minute hand, just very lightly, goes over the minute marks there. All right, all of these applications, as I've said earlier, are also in 18 karat gold. So no skimping in any part here. The date dial at the three o'clock position also follows the same guilloche pattern within it with number of days going up to 31 in a clockwise manner. And while we're here, we can actually see how the date and time work. All right, now notice that this watch has actually come to a full and complete stop, right? So we can demonstrate this, we can go over this, we'll learn about it together. Simply unwind the crown to the first position. This allows you to wind the watch, as you can hear. All right and typically winding, you only really need to wind it maybe like 30 times or so to get to start moving. As you can see, the second hand has begun moving properly. All right, move it to the second position. And what does that seem to do? Oh yes, it moves the minute hand. Also has stopped the seconds for precise timekeeping. Actually, that was the final position. First position winds the watch. Second position, it moves the hour hand and therefore, you can move the date at the same time by using this mechanic. So if you'll notice, let me zoom in there, you can see the date changing based on where the hour hand is located. Once I pass midnight, the date we'll move forward, but if I move at the backward to about 10 o'clock or so, it will actually move backward, meaning that this is in the evening. All right. And the final position, that's where the seconds stop and the minute hand can then be adjusted for precise timekeeping. All right, push the crown and wind it tightly against the case for that superior water resistance. All right and onto the movement. Actually for this watch, which is quite interesting, it follows the general formula for typical Rolex movements. Specifically, this one is the 3165 caliber made in-house by Rolex. It's perpetual mechanical and self winding with a diameter of 28.5 millimeters with a plus or minus two second per day time differential, as you would expect from Rolex, and as shown earlier, there's that center hour, minute, and second hand function on board with the instantaneous date and rapid setting, as I've shown you, as well as stop seconds for precise time setting in that final position. The oscillator is the paramagnetic parachrom bleu hairspring, combined with the paraflex shock absorbers. This watch is resistant to sudden bumps as well as electromagnetic interference. Altogether, this movement holds a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. And with a dress watch this stylish, I can't imagine putting it down for more than a single day. Now, the strap on these Cellini models is actually made of alligator leather and this particular model comes with a black leather strap with an 18 karat gold buckle to match the aesthetic of the case. All right, again, not a single detail is skipped, as you would expect from Rolex. So who exactly is this watch for and where does it fit within Rolex's catalog? I don't really know. Perhaps if you're interested in other watch makers, like say Patek Phillipe or Jaeger LeCoultre, this could be a very good bridge between Rolex and those other brands. But, you know, as this dial, you know, despite being housed in a case that's actually slightly above the median size at 39 millimeters, actually it looks a lot larger than it really is. You know, so you get actually much more dial on this watch than on any other Rolex watch. And if we're really trying to push the boundaries, maybe the Sky-Dweller would be a close contender, in terms of the dial-to-case proportions, but even that's already quite a stretch. Definitely if you're in need of shaking up your wardrobe or you need something different from say, a Submariner, Datejust, Yacht-Master, you name it, the Cellini could give you that little edge, since it's quite an interesting and very niche appearance, and still has that backing of quality and reliability that Rolex can really provide. So I don't know. To me, this, the strap, actually didn't show you the underside. It has that very tanned feel and actually feels very soft to the touch. And so wearing this on my wrist actually feels very nice, very, very clean, almost like as if I'm wearing a president bracelet. Very soft and supple to the touch. And, you know, honestly, while it does seem big, it doesn't actually feel as big as it really is. And, you know, as for its usability, it's quite useful, especially with that date reminder there. So if I ever, you know, take some time off, I can come back and I know exactly what day it is. So very useful there. And, you know honestly, the mesmerizing patterns in the light really make this shine within the Rolex catalog. All right, so I don't know, enough of my thoughts. What do you think? Let us know what you think down in the comments below. Where does this fit within the Rolex's catalog? I'm actually at a loss for words, because, you know, honestly this does not look like any other Rolex I've ever seen or held and you know, it has that really nice luxurious look and feel to it that I'm not really getting as much of from the other models.
