Introducing The New Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches (Live Pics)

Rolex restyles the Sky-Dweller.


The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller has received a makeover with the introduction of aesthetic and technical enhancements. The watch, aimed at frequent travelers, displays the time in two time zones simultaneously and comes equipped with an annual Saros calendar. The Calibre 9002 with Superlative Chronometer certification allows the Sky-Dweller to display the date, month, and an additional 24-hour time zone, while the instantaneous date change is linked to the local time.

The new range includes a version of the Sky-Dweller in 18 ct white gold combined with a black elastomer bracelet. Two new dial colors have been introduced, including a mint green dial for the white Rolesor version, and a blue-green dial for the 18 ct Everose gold variant. The Sky-Dweller has a Ring Command mechanism that enables the user to swiftly and securely pick and adjust each watch feature individually.

The 42mm Oyster case is waterproof up to a depth of 100 metres and is available in a solid block of Oystersteel or 18 ct white or Everose gold. The crystal, which features a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock, is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire and has an anti-reflective coating.

The watch is available with an Oyster bracelet or an Oysterflex bracelet, the latter being the first time the combination of precious metal and elastomer has been used.
