THE DOCTOR'S ROLEX

Post by koimaster » August 23rd 2021, 8:28am

Rolex had a few stand-out models in the early 2000s, models that are not particularly sought after by the typical 'Hulk' collector but still worth learning about. These are the kinds of watches that are easily forgotten in the midst of new, pinker releases by the storied Swiss brand. One of such models was the Rolex Cellini Prince. And while the modern Cellini Prince may not scream 1920s Art Deco, that's actually where it comes from!

Doctor's watches were especially popular during the Art Deco period in the 1920s, when several models were produced by different companies, all aimed at providing functionality for doctors. The most common function of a doctor’s watch was being able to tell a patient’s heartbeat – invoking the classic image of a young doctor staring at their wrist while they have their hand on the patient’s chest counting out their heartbeat. The Rolex Prince, originally released in 1928, was made precisely for that, with a large small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock that the doctor could use to keep track of time.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
