Rolex launched the new watch with function of moon phase 60 years later on the Baselworld held last year, it was just Rolex Cellini. Watch lovers have quite different opinions on this model. Someone spoke highly of its design, while others considered that it has deviated from the original concept of Cellini. Whether the comment is good or bad, the elegant copy watch has caused a big sensation. What was unexpected and reasonable is that the heat of Cellini disappeared quickly. Besides of this moon phase Cellini, the whole Cellini collection is not popular as others. But what causes the embarrassing situation?
Manual winding movement, non-waterproof, gentle and leather strap may be the original impression that many watch lovers have on Rolex Cellini. Throughout these decades of development, The design philosophy of Rolex Cellini is constantly changing: the manual two-hand and precious metal models after the 1970s belong to Cellini; after 2000, the new model with a new manual winding movement and three hands but it is only waterproof in daily lift; later, Cellini adopted a structure of Oyster, being equipped with an self-winding mechanical movement; Then it came to the Rolex Cellini imitation with Everose gold case with function of moon phase last year.
Rolex fake watches with self-winding mechanical movement are sold with a higher price as they are made of precious metal. All the models of Cellini have been made of precious metal such as yellow gold, platinum or rose gold. That may be one reason why Cellini is not as popular as other models of Rolex.
