Rolex Cellini is a dress line that is particular about elegance without using the oyster case, which is the biggest feature of the brand.

Although it is not as well known as the dress line and sports models of oyster cases such as Datejust, it has a long history and was born in 1928.

The name "Cerini" comes from a person named Benvenuto Cellini, an Italian engraver of the Renaissance period in the 16th century.

The fact that this Cellini is the only one in the Rolex collection that has the name of a particular person means that this Cellini has a unique standing position.

The material of the

case is Cellini, which is produced only in gold or platinum, but there are countless variations in the combination of the case, dial and hands.

This watch is a model called Ref.3804 manufactured in the early 1970s.

The case material is 18K white gold and the shape is round, but the lug part is integrated into a curved design.

Like the OMEGA C case, it has no breaks and gives a more sophisticated impression.

If you look closely, the front surface has a radial hairline finish. The back side is polished on the periphery and the inside is finished differently from the vertical hairline.

The dial is a silver dial with a sunray finish, which is slightly ivory due to aging.

The hands are bar hands of the same color as the dial. If you look closely, it has a slightly chevron shape. The

index is the same bar type as the needle, but it has a three-dimensional shape with multi-faceted cuts, and the center looks black depending on the angle.

In addition, there are σ (sigma) marks on both sides of the SWISS at 6 o'clock on the dial.

This is a notation found on watches from 1973 to 2000 of a manufacturer that belonged to an organization called APRIOR, and it uses precious metals such as gold for the dial and index. Indicates.

It was put in for the purpose of "indicating that it is a high quality watch made in Switzerland in gold".

Rolex, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, IWC, Omega 5 watch specifications, but not all watches.

Rolex seems to have adopted it from around 1973 to the mid-1970s, and it is highly evaluated by collectors for its high rarity. The

movement is equipped with a hand-wound Cal.1600. (The photo of the machine was taken before the overhaul)

I matched it with a thin and shiny dark brown leather strap.

A genuine Rolex SS buckle is included.

Overhauled at Matsuno Clock Shop. The case has been polished.

1 year warranty.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
