Today's offering showcases this gorgeous ref. 3881 oval shaped vintage Rolex from the Cellini Collection.
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 indexed bark finish textured bezel, striking royal blue dial with 18K white gold coronet, and high-grade handwound caliber 1600 movement.
It has 100% of its original parts. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration and presents in perfect condition - a 9.7 or 9.8 out of 10.
Its case presents as mint. Its original dial has been meticulously restored - the printing is perfect and could pass as Rolex factory even under heavy magnification.
A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement, which is near pristine. It continues to keep very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have 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.
An more than half century old Cellini that presents like new!
Rolex Cellini watches feature well-executed mechanisms and classic styles. They serve as both a precision wristwatch and a discriminating fashion statement. Phil Michelson has worn a Cellini for a number of years.
