Rolex Cellini “Midas”

You have probably heard of master designer Gerald Genta. He was the genius behind the AP Royal Oak and the Patek Nautilus, among others. Few people realize that this man also drew a watch for Rolex.

Named the “King Midas” because this mythical Greek figure could turn anything he touched into gold. This watch was, at the time on integrated gold bracelet, the heaviest gold watch on the market. It was carved from a single block of 18k gold. It was, at the time, also the most expensive Rolex of all.

This Cellini Midas is a later version in a slightly more modest guise. It shares the same characteristic asymmetrical case shape, but this one is brought under the Cellini lineup. Our example features an amazing hobnail finish, playfully catching the light. It surrounds a beautifully deep purple-ish blue dial.

Looking for something with a lot of character and individual style? This could very well be your watch! You will be in good company as this watch was recently spotted on the wrist of hit sensation The Weeknd.
