Today's offering showcases this gorgeous ref. 3880 "TV shaped" Rolex from the Cellini Collection.
Rolex designed the Cellini to be the preeminent symbol of elegance and performance. A premier dress watch, this Cellini has an 18K gold case with indexed bark textured bezel, gloss royal blue dial dial with an electric quality to it and an 18K white gold coronet, and high-grade handwound caliber 1600 movement.
As a midsized mens watch it is well-suited for someone who doesn't have a large wrist.
It has 100% Rolex parts and presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.5 out of 10. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration.
Its case presents as mint with only slight signs of previous polishing. Its original Rolex dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement, which is very clean pristine. It continues to run very well, keeping time nearly on par with a brand new Rolex in our testing position.
For the finishing touch it has been equipped it with a brand new leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
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.
