First introduced in 2012, the Rolex Sky-Dweller watch is large, luxurious, and impressive, but you expect that from a Rolex. What are the two features that jump out at you when you wear the Rolex Sky-Dweller watch? You can get an annual calendar and a dual time indication. The Sky-Dweller watch is the most complicated of the Rolex collection. It’s the perfect watch if you find yourself traveling in different time zones. Rolex buyers in Atlanta recognize quality in Rolex watches and will give you a fair price if you’re looking to sell a Rolex watch.
Dual Time Zones
The Rolex Sky-Dweller watch displays a second time zone. The second time zone can be set to universal time or to home time when traveling. An inverted red triangle marks the reference time. The hour hand is moved forward and backward in one-hour increments to set the local time.
The Annual Calendar
The Rolex Sky-Dweller watch has an annual calendar called Saros. The watch requires one date adjustment each year: when the month changes from February to March. The calendar differentiates between 30-day and 31-day months. The months of the year are indicated in 12 apertures around the circumference of the dial, right outside the hour markers: 1 o’clock is January, 2 o’clock is February, etc. The current month is a contrasting color. There’s an instantaneous jump from 30 to 1—the 31 doesn’t show at all.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller watch makes a statement. It’s available in Everose gold (a special rose gold), white gold (an alloy of gold with a white metal such as silver), and yellow gold (an alloy of gold with a metal such as copper). All colors of gold are 18-karat gold or 75 percent pure gold.
The white gold watch comes with a white gold bracelet and ivory-colored dial. With all versions, you get a choice of dials and either a bracelet of the same metal or an alligator strap with a buckle.
Some other features of the Rolex Sky-Dweller include:
- The hands are tipped with Super-LumiNova that is visible in the dark.
- The watch contains a center second hand.
- The Oyster case diameter of the watch is 42 millimeters or 1.65 inches. The watch is large but elegant and has a presence all its own. The lugs curve down enough to keep a gap between the wrist and the back of the watch, making it a comfortable watch to wear despite its size.
- The watch carries a five-year warranty.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller watch sets a standard for high quality and excellent execution in luxury watches.
The Ring Command is the system that sets the watch’s functions. The basis of the system is a rotating bezel, which can be set in three positions. By pulling the crown out, you can select the function to set—the date, the local time, or the reference or home time. The Command Ring simplifies the adjustment function of the annual calendar.
A Rolex Sky-Dweller watch with an Everose case and bracelet or a white gold case and bracelet costs around $65,000, while a yellow gold case with a brown alligator strap runs just over $50,000. A Rolex Sky-Dweller is a sign of someone who appreciates high quality in watches and has the means to afford the best. The Rolex Sky-Dweller is competitively priced.
