The Rolex Cellini Moonphase fake watches show that Rolex hasn’t forgotten its past (like some companies), but also that it isn’t abusing the memory (like others). The Cellini Moonphase might be one of the best modern interpretations of a brand’s historic timepieces that I have seen in a while (and coming from me, that’s saying something).
The new Rolex Cellini Moonphase is the first moon phase watch from Rolex in more than 60 years, and while it is not a reissue of the famous triple date with moon phase, it pays homage to the past while being something entirely new for Rolex.
The Cellini Moonphase features a date ring on the exterior of the dial, just like the historic 6062 and 8171 references, but instead of the arrow pointer it features a blued crescent moon, a tie-in to the main complication that is now the star of the show.
The rest of the dial layout is decidedly modern with a chapter ring for the minutes splitting the gold hour markers in two and keeping things rather geometric. This is sort of in the same vein with the Sky-Dweller and the Yacht-Master only less rugged and more refined.
But the materials are only an added bonus to an already great-looking watch with a new bit of history to write.
The moon phase in the Cellini Moonphase is already on its way to greatness since the moon phase mechanism is patented due to its adjusting method and the specific way to read it.
The moon phase isn’t displayed like normal moon phases (with a disk passing through an opening to slice up the “moon” during its phases), but instead the new moon and full moon are in plain view while the current phase is pointed out by a triangular marker at the top of the subdial.
To set the moon phase men’s fake Rolex watches, one first uses the corrector tool and the inset pusher to rotate the moon as close to the indicator triangle as possible. Then you switch to the crown and pull it out to the third position where you can finely adjust the moon so it sits perfectly underneath the marker. Then, adjust the minute hand to be at the top of the hour followed by pushing the corrector the number of days it has been since the last full moon.
