After U.S. President completes his mandate, his portrait is set up at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. In February 2018, at the ceremony in the United States capital, an incredible official portrait of the former President of the United States, Barack Obama by Kehinde Wiley was revealed. In addition to beauty and performance, what has attracted particular attention is a small part of the portrait – the Rolex watch on his hand.
The swiss timepiece Barack Obama wears is a 39 mm Rolex Cellini Time Ref. 50509. This classic 18-ct white gold watch with a timeless white lacquered dial and an elegant black alligator strap retails for 108.750 kn (14.500 €).
Rolex Cellini Time – a luxury Swiss watch that combines classic style and outstanding performance.
The Rolex wristwatch is part of the Cellini collection, characterized by the eternal elegance of traditional watches of contemporary style. Its simple, clear dial pays tribute to the timeless codes of classic watchmaking, while reinterpreting them with an elegant modernity. The elongated applique hour markers are divided by a minute track, moved towards the centre of the dial closer to the tips of the hands.
The Cellini Time is the quintessential expression of a watchmaking classic, the guardian of hours, minutes and seconds.
The stylized, stretched applique hour markers are divided by a minute track that has been moved toward the center of the dial, closer to the tips of the hands. Like on all Rolex watches, the appliques and Rolex crown are crafted in 18 ct gold. The hands count off each second, each minute and each hour with the full precision of the self-winding chronometer movement.
Rolex has its own gold foundry at one of its sites in Geneva, to ensure unbeatable quality and manufacture of its 18-carat gold alloys. Gold is made of pure metal only and is carefully inspected in-house laboratory with state-of-art equipment before it is molded.
Hours, minutes and seconds form the essence of time. The Cellini Time captures the present as if nothing else were of importance; nothing but the magic of the moment.
Mens watches, Rolex Cellini Time are offered in either 18 ct white or Everose gold in a 39 mm case.
Its dial can be black, rhodium, white lacquered or a diamond-set dial. The Cellini Time is available with double doomed and fluted bezel, double diamond set and fluted bezel, or bezel with a set with diamonds.
The Cellini Time is fitted on a black or brown alligator leather strap with the 18-ct gold buckle that matches the gold of the watch case.
