Rolex has developed designs that have become incredibly recognizable. Even if you’re glancing at somebody’s wrist across the room. But there is one watch in their catalog that doesn’t look like the iconic. Rolex watches that many of us have known as many must love and that watch is the Rolex Collini. So let’s take a look at Hands-on review of one of the watches that make up the rocks chillin in line and take a look at the Baxter and why this watch for the most part has become a bit of an outcast John John menu, Rourke’s chilly knee line like I mentioned is a bit of an outcast when you look at the entire Rolex, offering the name of the line, paying tribute to the great Italian goldsmith and sculptor from the Renaissance, however, to identified the true roots of this watch. We have to go back to the development of a 1928 release from relax with the Rolex Prince. The model was released shortly after the release of the iconic. Rolex Oyster Case, Designed as a way to complement the sporty-er models with a rectangular Art Deco style. Watch the watch never reach extreme popularity, However, it did manage to obtain a production run for 20 years. The watch featured an hour and a second dial on the watch and, as a result was informally referred to as the doctor’s watch given its price and then the notable sub seconds, which made it easy to monitor patient’s pulses throughout the mid 20th century. Throw extra! Leaney line could probably be best summed up with the word random as it was marked with different styles that hinted at the Watch’s inability to catch mass appeal. But this consider doesn’t take away from the line, actually offering some pretty unique pieces. The line never seemed to garner up the level of consistency and as a result led to some more adventurous offerings like the chilly neum with the platinum case and the turn of the 21st century. The Cheney line was essentially forgotten pursuit for Rolex until 2014 with the reissue of a new collection of Chilean models, which brings us to the piece that I have in my possession here today. A Rolex Chile new time reference five zero five zero five, so ever since seeing one of these watches, I’ve always been very intrigued about where this watch resides within the entire offering of Rolex, but also the entire offering of elegant looking dress watches in the industry in this price range so first before we proceed any further big. Thank YOU to Baz watches for sending me. This watch their partner, the channel, one of the largest online retailers in the world for Pre-owned watches. And if you use the link in the description, you won’t buy this watch or any other watch. They have available in their shop and they have hundreds and hundreds of watches not just Rolex. There’s a way to support the content that you’re watching, but just want to thank them up front, so like I mentioned. This is the reference Five zero five zero five coming in with an ever rose case, so the price here for retail is fifteen thousand two hundred dollars on Bob’s website. It’s coming in eleven thousand two hundred ninety five dollars so case size here, looking at 39 millimeters thickness of 11 millimeters movement is in Rolex automatic 3 1 3 2 water resistance of 50 meters and has a dome sapphire crystal. So that Rolex 3 1 3 2 movement It has a 48-hour power reserve. So when looking at the actual case of the watch, it comes with that fluted bezel, but it does have much smaller. Rivest than that of many oysters cased models, it also has a dome upper portion of the bezel that is first to meet the crystal, which makes this fluted bezel hallmark, a bit more hidden compared to other counterparts within the Rolex lineup of watches. All this lens Do that watch looking more elegant in its design in my opinion when flipping this watch around with the case back and similar. Rolex fashion. It has a solid case back, which I have mixed feelings about as this dial screams handphone dress watch that should have a fully exposed movement on the back, but given the watch is featuring an automatic 3 1 3 2 movement and probably isn’t going to be decorated like a longer. Vacheron Patek! I don’t think we’re missing out entirely, especially because we’re gonna be having a rotor here. That’s gonna hide most of that movement as well. The watch wear is pretty small on the wrist. Given it’s thirty. Nine millimeter case actually aware is very comparable to a traditional 36 millimeter case, an oyster case as the watch comes in with a 45 millimeter lug to lug height. When putting it on the wrist, this becomes incredibly evident for reference. My wrist is coming in at six and a quarter inches. The watch also comes with a leather alligator strap with an 18 karat gold. Rolex buckle to match the case, so we’re moving to the dial. We have a rather unique design, and when looking at it at first glance, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell that you’re looking at a Rolex apart from the name on the dial, The dial sports an interesting mix of slim roman numerals at the our markings at the 12 3 6 & 9 with split applied indices at the other. Our markings housing the minute numerals within the shorter. Dauphine style hands in this case work as a result, given the minute markings Landing closer towards the center of the dial. But one small little lip pick of this watch when glancing at the dial. Say you look away, You’re looking down at the watch. I could see it being harder to identify because both of the hands are a little bit shorter than a lot of different watch that you might find on the market harder to Aya differentiate between the two with the hour and the minute hand as I think they’re pretty comparable in their overall size. But that’s a small nitpick here. At the 12 oclock, we see a traditional. Rolex logo adorned with the iconic crown above this is balanced out with the cursive writing of Chile knee at the six oclock in white, matching the color of the Roman numerals on the dial, as well. The DAO color black. But it also can be found in different color options. Personally, I think I like the actual white variations A little bit more. However, this black dial does work incredibly well with that ever. Rose case, but the interesting thing about this watch is really where it’s positioned at within Rolexe’s lineup of watches as well as where it falls in the market, given this retail price of fifteen thousand two hundred dollars, which all I feel leads to this watch getting glanced over by many luxury watch enthusiasts and looking at it. It truly is a fantastic looking piece that I think brings something unique to the Rolex line certainly, however, begs the question. Who is the buyer for this watch? Does it bring enough to the table to pull a potential buyer away from Malanga, a Patek Vajrayana braig, a. Or does it offer a unique enough proposition to a Rolex buyer That perhaps wants something different than what the steel sports lineup can offer, but I think it does bring into play. Why do people buy Rolex watches? Of course for people that love watches? I think they can look past the amount of status that comes with buying one, but for the mass appeal market out there where people are and that’s mostly where many Rolex buyers reside Does this answer that call of giving that same status elements and doing it at a price where it makes sense? I think that is why this overall model has struggled. Which I think is truly unfortunate because I really believe this is one of the most beautiful from my, of course. Opinion Rolex watches that you can find so. Are these watches worth it? I know it’s up to the buyer, but I will say this. If you are buying this pre-owned because I mean, there is negatives that go along with these watches and the fact that they don’t demand as much on the secondary market. But if you’re able to get in on that and capitalize on that secondary market, you can find these watches for significantly cheaper than the retail price. Something that you can’t say about many Rolex watches. You can’t do that. Save on the ten thousand ten thousand. The fifteen thousand dollar range on that lower end. Find one of these watches and you’re looking for a very elegant looking dress watch and don’t necessarily need the status element That comes with Rolex. I think these are very interesting watches to consider, and I really hope that this Rolex. Shalini, the time line can start getting a little bit more attention, but I really hope that relax doesn’t push these watches to the wayside once again because I think it does bring something unique to the table, and that’s something you can’t always say about some Rolex watches as I think a lot of their designs have just been the same for so many years. Don’t fault them for it, but it is something to think about so guys. What do you think of this watch?
