The Watch

The Cellini is probably the least-known series in the Rolex catalogue, the Cellini was first introduced in the early 1960’s and was named after Italian artist Benvenuto Cellini. The watch was the brainchild of marketing director Rene-Paul Jeanneret, who wanted Rolex to offer a high-end dress style timepiece as an alternative to the sports watches they were known for. 
.
The example we have here is the very elegant reference 5112-8, the 32mm Case is crafted in 18k Gold. This guy dates from 1989 and comes with its complete full set of Inner and Outer Boxes, Receipts, Book, Guarantees, Wallet, Swing Tag and it is even on the Original Leather strap with 18k Gold Rolex Buckle.
.
The Cellini is all original and in fantastic condition, it's such a rare find to see one so complete and barely worn.
