Rolex Sky Dweller – here is one of the most popular watches among celebrities and influential people. Jay-Z is a great fan of this model, as he has worn this model on several occasions. What makes it so famous and wanted?
From the beginning we can see that Sky Dweller has caused some small controversy because it seems to hold the title of the most complex Rolex watch. From the point of view of mechanical complexity only Yacht-Master II can rival it.
It was launched in 2012, worn only in precious metals. In 2017, Rolex launched two more versions of Sky-Dweller under Rolesor, the company’s own term, which describes the mix of steel and white or yellow gold. Since that moment, Sky-Dweller has become more accessible.
The Rolex Sky Dweller is a luxury watch with unique technical details. It keeps all the elements specific to the brand, it is a splendid and unmistakable model.
It is fully plated with 18 Karat golden gold, covered with sapphire glass, it has a detail-rich dial, a comfortable bracelet and complex functions extremely useful especially for those who often travel around the world.
The current month is indicated by the presence of a red rectangle around the dial. It automatically adjusts the date and time by location, which means you do not have to do this manually. Higher efficiency is justified by the revolutionary mechanism. It displays the date and year in two time zones format.
One of its main features is functionality. Sky Dweller is a lasting, extremely practical watch, easy to use and wear regardless of the conditions and environment.
Sky-Dweller is also a combination of two main functions: dual-time zones or GMT complication and annual calendar. The first function is that the watch displays the time in two time zones at the same time. It has a pointer that can be set independently, forward or backward. The second function is specific to authentic GMT watches and it refers to the fact that the pointer is adjustable from the dial and it can be reset to a new time zone without completely stopping it.
These features make Sky-Dweller the perfect watch for those who travel and often change the time zone.
In its turn, the annual calendar, a recent innovation for handheld watches, has some major advantages compared to the annual calendar – it is less complex from a mechanical point of view and less subject to using errors.
Rolex Sky-Sweller is presented in a solid, consistent and durable case with a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of 14 mm. It is made of the same 18K yellow gold, which makes the watch look like a unitary artwork, extremely pleasant and tactile. This is one of the most solid carcasses on Rolex watches.
ROLEX CALIBRE 9001 automatic motion refers to a premium Swiss standard and is amazing from a technical perspective. The motion uses the annual calendar system called SAROS, a revolutionary planetary mechanism inspired by the regular alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth.
The Sky-Dweller is equipped with calibre 9001, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Protected by seven patents, it is one of the most complex calibres ever developed by the brand. Its architecture, manufacturing quality and innovative features make it singularly precise and reliable.
