The rectangular Rolex watch is one of the earliest models ever made. First introduced in 1928, Prince is a product of that era, incorporating the rectangular watch trend and defined by clean lines which are reminiscent of Art Deco.

The Cellini Prince was produced for about as long as Rolex built its world-famous waterproof Oyster case. Prince watches, however, are the exact opposite, made for special occasions. However, the small seconds subdial on the dial became very useful for doctors. It’s even been called a “doctor’s watch” for its usefulness in timing a patient’s pulse. The Cellini Prince watch was made entirely of gold, and the price was so high that few but doctors could afford it.

The Cellini Prince has been in production for 20 years and has helped cement Rolex’s position as a sought-after premium brand in the watch world. By the 1940s, however, it was time for the Cellini Prince to retire. Not only is Art Deco fading, but the horrors of the Great Depression and World War II are influencing the style in a new way.

However, we were reintroduced to the Cellini Prince in 2005, when Rolex re-released the watch in a modern, new way as part of their luxurious and dress-oriented Cellini collection. The reason so many collectors love the New Prince is that it’s a perfect modern reinterpretation of a classic. The new Rolex Prince Cellini has a larger clock measuring size of 47mm x 28mm, which is forged in yellow gold, and two white gold, one yellow gold , one everose gold, with the same dial layout with a prominent sub-second hand .

Rolex has since discontinued its modern Prince Cellini collection. However, you can still find original Cellini Prince watches and redesigned Prince Rolex watches on the secondary market. These watches are beloved by collectors not only because of their special shape, but because they are such rare and unusual Rolex watches. If you want to add something truly special to your collection, this is the perfect timepiece, as it is a luxury watch unlike any other in Rolex’s current portfolio.
