Rolex Sky-Dweller is certainly a traveler’s watch with the unique stamp of quality and style that is proverbially associated with the iconic brand which as one of the ad slogans brilliantly put it: Men who guide the destinies of the world wear Rolex watches. This is the immortal value of the brand. It has seen great hands that had something to do with the destiny of mankind. Its history tells that it is a timepiece of destiny and no other watch in history can claim so many associations.
The present buzz centered on Rolex Sky-Dweller is based on the solid foundations of the model both technically and aesthetically. It s fitted with a second time zone as well as an annual calendar. Annual calendar is an amazing complication in which the difference in number of days in a month is automatically adjusted. Human intervention is needed only at the end of February. There is amazing ingenuity in the display of the two time zones as well. The local time is exhibited in the conventional way of using the two hands while the second time zone is shown using an eccentric 24 hours rotating disc.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller annual calendar in the model also has an unusual display mechanism. The same twelve hour markers are used to display the month. Next to each time marker numerals there is a window. The current month is indicated by the window which is highlighted in black while all the other windows remain white. The date could be viewed through a bubble aperture placed at the three hour marker. The Caliber 9001 has a bi-directional winding a usual practice in all Rolexes. The COSC certified model comes with whopping power reserve of 72 hours.
The 380 or odd components are adroitly packed in a case of 42 mm of the Rolex Sky-Dweller, which is water resistant at 100 meters. To accommodate the varying tastes of patrons, they are presented in white, yellow, or rose gold. The rose-gold version is fitted with a leather strap while all others have the celebrated oyster style bracelets which merge wonderfully with the case giving the impression that both are a fused unit. The bezel as well as the winding crown is corrugated and mirror polished and any tilt of the hands would result in pleasing reflection of brilliant light as found in Belgium cut diamonds. The final verdict is a thing of great beauty and joy to adorn your wrists for years to come.
