Rolex became famous for its watches that served a specific purpose. These watches, known today as tool watches, had features as diverse as water pressure resistance, magnetism resistance, speed calculations and navigational functions. However, for most people, what sets a Rolex apart is the beauty and luxury of the brand. This is in part because of the simple fact that even Rolex’s tool watches are remarkably stylish. However, Rolex does produce watches that are specifically designed for formal wear and the Rolex Cellini might be the perfect example.
