1960's Rolex Cellini Vintage Mens Midsize Rectangular Handwound Watch, White Dial, Ref. 3603 - 18K Gold


Item No. 5446

Today's offering showcases this gorgeous ref. 3803 Rolex from the Cellini Collection. The 3603 has the classic Cellini look done in a rectangular watch.

Rolex designed the Cellini to be the pre-eminent symbol of elegance and performance. A premier dress watch, this Cellini has an 18K gold case, white Roman dial, and high-grade handwound caliber 1600 movement.

It is 100% Rolex down to the original hands and crown and presents in true expertly restored condition. The case presents as just short of mint. The dial is a perfect restoration - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.

Our watchmaker has just freshly fully serviced the movement, which is running very true.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

A five decade old Cellini that presents as nearly like new.
