Rolex Cellini King Midas Blue Lapis Lazuli Dial 18K Gold


Presenting the Rolex Cellini King Midas 4316, a timepiece that is as much a work of art as it is a testament to exceptional craftsmanship. This watch is in excellent condition, having been meticulously kept to preserve its original allure. The case, bracelet, and dial are in immaculate condition and the watch comfortably fits a 6.75in wrist.

The King Midas is a unique piece, designed by the legendary watch designer Gérald Genta, who is known for his unconventional designs. This watch is no exception, with its symmetrical case and thick integrated bracelet, carved from a single block of 18k gold. The design draws inspiration from the Parthenon temple of Athena in Greece.

This model features the rare and collectible Lapis Lazuli dial, accompanied by the Rolex crown and Greek letters spelling out the "MIDAS" name. This fabulous dial is protected by a sapphire crystal, which may be an aftermarket replacement, but it does not detract from the overall elegance of the watch.

This watch is not just a luxury timepiece, it's a piece of history. The Rolex King Midas was once owned by legendary figures such as Elvis Presley and John Wayne. It even made an appearance in a James Bond movie, further adding to its allure and mystique.
