History: Long overshadowed by its Oyster case brethren, the Cellini is that other, dressier half of the Rolex's dual-range catalogue, with the Cellini Prince dating back to the 1920s. The Cellini bears the distinction of being the first mass-produced watch to gain a chronometer certification, when a batch of 500 chronometers were produced for King George V's Silver Jubilee in 1936.
