From the start the Rolex Day-Date was meant to be a successful merger between a functional sport-style watch and a prestigious men’s status item. Use of the Oyster case was a part of that – as well as Rolex’s famously dependable mechanical movement. What really benefits the Rolex Day-Date isn’t the fact that Rolex has been producing it since 1956, but rather that Rolex has continued to improve upon it since 1956. It goes without saying that the latest generation Day-Date 40 is the best Rolex has ever produced.
For a long time the replica rolex Day-Date was a 36mm wide watches until Rolex introduced the 41mm wide Day-Date II. This model wasn’t as refined/proportioned as a Rolex watch might otherwise be, so Rolex decided to release the current model being the Day-Date 40. Introduced in this generation of models is a slew of important changes, quality upgrades, as well as the introduction of Rolex’s most modern generation of in-house movements being the calibre 32XX series. Specifically, the Day-Date contains the replica Rolex calibre 3255 automatic “Superlative Chronometer” movement watches .
Accurate to plus or minus two seconds per day, the movement is given both COSC Chronometer certification and tested in-house by Rolex to meet additional quality and performance standards.
The movement might not be the prettiest in the world (hidden by a screw-down caseback), but it is very well made. Operating at 4Hz, the 3255 has three days of power reserve and I found it to be extremely reliable. Complications include the time with central seconds, the date, and of course the day of the week window with the fully spelled out day. Both of the calendar discs instantly jump to their new position when the date changes at midnight. If you wanted to go up to a fancier luxury watch, then you might be getting more complication and more hand-decoration on the movement – but you really can’t find better performance than a Rolex 3255
Rolex’s new 39mm wide Cellini case combines elements of its more classic watch collection with the universally popular Oyster case. At 50 meters water resistant the Cellini isn’t an Oyster, but then again it is thinner in size. It does however bear a very slim version of the Oyster’s fluted bezel which adds an additional sense of Rolex DNA to the collection.cheap Rolex Cellini Date Watch At 39mm wide,
I feel that the Cellini case combines grace and modern proportions in a satisfying way that feels neither too large or too small. Unlike the wider lugs on most Oyster Professional watches such as the Submariner, the lugs on the Cellini case taper more allowing for a more diminutive fit on the wrist. It feels like just a few years ago virtually all Rolex watches came exclusively on a metal bracelet. Now, with pieces like the Rolex Cellini we are becoming aware of a greater focus on adding straps to Rolex wearing experience.
Like the also new Rolex Cellini Dual Time watch,
the Rolex Cellini Date has a lovely guilloche engraved dial that is available in either silver or black. The base Cellini Time watch has a more simple lacquered dial. Each of the dial colors is available with either the 18k white or Everose gold (a special 18k rose gold alloy that replica Rolex makes) case, which adds a welcome variety and level of consumer choice. In fact, with three distinct Rolex Cellini models, each coming in different case materials and dial colors, Rolex has released a total of 12 new Cellini models for 2014. That is actually quite a bit when you consider how slowly Rolex typically releases new models and adds variations to existing collections.Our sentiments about the size of the hands on the Rolex Cellini models remain as the double row of hour markers makes the hands feel a bit too short. Nevertheless, the dials are attractive and mix a level of simple sophistication with mature class and style. The off-center date dial offers a new look for the brand, and adds a new way to tell the date even if it isn’t strictly speaking as convenient as a digital date window.
