Who Wears Rolex Cellini Watches?

The Rolex Cellini stands out among the Oyster-cased watches of the Crown. Elegant, traditional, and yet eccentric, this collection lets aesthetics shine over purpose-built features.

While the Cellini as we know it today comes in a refined round case, its long history includes avant-garde and uniquely shaped pieces from decades ago. No wonder we see the watch paired with various ensembles – from casual to formal and sport.

Looking to add a Rolex Cellini to your collection? Take your cue from these famous men who love Rolex’s signature dress watch.

 

 

Rolex Cellini Dual Time on Alex Rodriguez

Considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Alex Rodriguez holds the record for most career grand slams since 1994. Now a businessman and philanthropist, Alex’s classic tailored look always land him on the best-dressed list.

 

 

Alex likes to pair his formal ensembles with the Rolex Cellini Dual Time in Everose gold. Coming in at 39mm, this model features a chocolate brown guilloche dial, topped by raised baton indices and dauphine hands. The dual time zone display makes for a perfect companion for globetrotters and fashion-forward men like Alex.

 


 

 

Rolex Cellini Moonphase on Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart is famously a huge fan of the Rolex sports watches, but he also made space for a unique and sophisticated Rolex dress model: the Cellini Moonphase. Released three years after the Swiss brand revamped the Cellini collection in 2014, it is the first Rolex to feature a moonphase indicator since the 1950s.

Aside from its 39mm case and an Everose gold construction, the Cellini Moonphase features a white lacquer dial, which serves as a backdrop for an ingenious moonphase display – a blue enamel disc with a slice of actual meteorite. Pro-golfer Roger Federer and American actor Nicolas Cage also wear this luxurious timepiece.

 


 

Cellini Time

 

Rolex Cellini Time on Placido Domingo

Spanish conductor and opera singer Placido Domingo, who is widely recognized for his versatility and powerful vocals, has been a Rolex ambassador since the 1980s. He was chosen by the brand for his passion for music, creativity, and exquisite taste.

 

 

He was often spotted with the Cellini Time – the simplest model in the collection. Boasting a lacquer finish, the white dial is particularly tidy and features only applied hour markers and hands in 18k White or Everose gold, to match the case. The time-only design was made more striking with the addition of a black inner minute track. Inside beats the chronometer-rated Caliber 3132 movement.

 


 

 

Rolex Cellini Danaos and Cellini Prince on Phil Mickelson

PGA champion Phil Mickelson has a penchant for vintage Rolex Cellini watches. In fact, it might have even been a lucky charm as he set a world record while wearing a Cellini Danaos. This watch takes inspiration from Rolex timepieces from the ‘20s and ‘30s and comes in different materials and sizes.

Phil’s choice model is the Ref. 4233, which features a gold construction, paired with a smooth bezel and a brown leather strap. Large Arabic numerals offer a playful look, while the rectangular case allows for a comfortable fit on the wrist.

 

Cellini Prince

 

The pro-golfer also wears a Cellini Prince, which stands out with its rectangular shape and Art Deco design. Known as the “doctor’s watch,” this timepiece is the 1920s’ original revived in 2015.

Phil went for the white gold model, which has a black and silver dial adorned with ‘Rayon Flamme De La Gloire’ guilloché patterns and a small seconds sub-dial. Red accents add a subtle pop of color, and the wearable colorway makes it a wardrobe staple.

 


 

 

Rolex Cellini Midas on The Weeknd

Just as unconventional as The Weeknd’s sartorial taste in fashion and music is the Rolex Cellini Midas in gold. This piece is born out of a partnership with Gerald Genta and served as inspiration for Cellini models in the 1980s.

Featuring a pentagon case, a brushed finish, and a gold construction, The Weeknd’s preferred model is a later version with a modest appeal. The jet-black dial has double baton indices and Rolex signature in gold, while the black leather strap lends a timeless appeal to the otherwise eccentric timepiece.
