*SOLD* Rolex Cellini Cestello 5330/5 White Dial 36mm 18k Gold. 1998 FULL SET.

Greetings.  Thanks for looking at this beautiful timepiece. We are a 5-star seller with many hundreds of watches sold and delivered around the world.

Presenting the exquisite, 36mm, 18k red gold Rolex Cellini Cestello Reference 5530/5; a masterpiece of elegance and craftsmanship. This particular Cellini line focuses heavily on precious metals, more refined lines, and elegant dials.

This ultra thin (just 6mm) manually wound timepiece was born in the Rolex factory in 1999 as per the serial number, and in the shop it sat until it became the property of its new owner in 2002 (as per the punched papers / certificate).

This stunning timepiece comes as a full set, complete with Watch, Outer Box, Inner Box, Wallet with manual / calendar, punched papers (Rolex Guarantee certificate) + green Hang Tag.

This striking set has been preserved as a collectors dream, in sublime condition as if a time capsule of Rolex history.

The watch itself measures 36mm (37.5 with the crown) and 43mm lug to lug and there is 19mm between the lugs if you wish to change the strap.

And while we’re on the subject of “lugs” this Cellini Cestello features hinged lugs, which means they and not completely fixed / static like most watch lugs.  In fact, they bend downwards to hug the wrist when worn… a delightfully satisfying and luxurious addition.

The Rolex Cellini features a beautifully sophisticated white dial with applied red gold hour + minute markers, and a solid snap on case-back.

It is in superb pre-owned condition as shown the photos and is running to modern day Rolex precision. It was given a loving service by our in-house master watch maker in February 2024. So please buy with total peace of mind.

The watch comes with its original black leather Rolex strap (which is in good condition) and also a Hirsch dark brown leather strap included in the sale.

This is truly a luxurious instrument for the classy Rolex collector who appreciates fine timepieces!

The name “Cellini” from the famous (and often underappreciated) Rolex Cellini line, comes from the famous Italian goldsmith, sculptor, and author Benvenuto Cellini. Born in Florence in 1500 at the height of the Italian Renaissance, at the time when three of the greatest artists of all time Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael were at work, his best-known extant works include the Cellini Salt Cellar, the sculpture of Perseus with the Head of Medusa, and his autobiography, which has been described as “one of the most important documents of the 16th century”.


  • Overall: Very good pre-owned condition with some visible wear marks.
  • Crystal: condition is perfect.
  • Case: Very good with a few visible surface blemishes and small dings.
  • Leather Strap: Black Rolex strap is good. Dark Brown Leather is Very good
