This Design Challenge Was To Present A Minimalized Watch Face

Easily the hardest part of the new Rolex Cellini to design was the dial. Rolex was faced with the challenge of creating a minimalized look common for dress watches but with some elegant flare that people have come to expect from replica Rolex watches. Part of this design challenge was to present a minimalized watch face but one that doesn’t look empty.

The result was a sort of dial within a dial, where the hands do not reach the edge of the main dial because the actual indication for the time is the inner one. This is an acceptable solution, and I agree that replica Rolex uk did succeed in making dials which have the right mixture of white space and details.

With that said, I also find myself repeatedly asking, “are these hands too short?” even though I’ve responded to myself a number of times. The answer is actually no, the hands aren’t too short, but it really depends on where you draw the line of where the dial starts and stops.
