The Rolex Sky-Dweller has a special and separate place in the wardrobe of almost all adventure seekers or globetrotters. However, it is not the watch that strikes your mind when thinking about Rolex. The Sky-Dweller is a complicated watch with unique incorporation of different complications. Thus, it is not typically the most-discussed watch among Rolex fanatics.
When Rolex introduced the Sky-Dweller in 2012, it created a buzz. However, while it is among the most expensive Rolex watches, people consider the Sky-Dweller a luxury timepiece instead of a tool watch. So let’s find out the fundamentals that make the Sky-Dweller unique.
And interestingly, it begins with the Calibre 9001 that Rolex created exclusively for this timepiece. Keep reading to know more.
Rolex equipped the robust and highly functional Sky-Dweller with the Calibre 9001. It is a COSC-certified automatic movement that offers a power reserve of 72 hours and 28,800bph. However, the Calibre 9001 ensures accurate timekeeping and resistance to temperature fluctuations and magnetic fields with a blue Parachrom hairspring.
Furthermore, the movement also features Paraflex shock absorbers that result in a smooth ride for the escapement. The most magnificent and appealing thing is the way Calibre 9001 functions collaborating with the watch’s bezel, GMT functionality and the annual calendar.
Rolex Sky-Dweller comes with a unique fluted bezel, popularly referred to as the ‘Ring Command’ bezel. However, this beautiful decorative gold element allows the users to choose the function they want to set. Just rotate the bezel, and you can select the date, month, local time and reference time.
Moreover, Rolex makes the bezel out of 18ct gold, also for the stainless steel Sky-Dweller versions.
Another defining feature of the Rolex Sky-Dweller is the annual calendar. It is the second most upgraded calendar functionality you will find in a wristwatch. Annual calendars do not track leap years but can correct for the months with 31 and 30 days mechanically. Thus, you will only need to manually adjust an annual calendar once every year at the end of February.
However, the Sky-Dweller has a date aperture at the 3 o’clock side with the signature Cyclops lens. Furthermore, a small opening above every hour indices indicates the months by showing a colour.
Adventurers and travellers consider the Rolex Sky-Dweller to be their ultimate travel companion. And the ingenious GMT functionality makes the timepiece a perfect piece for frequent travellers. With this feature, the wearer can track the time of two different time zones simultaneously.
Interestingly, you will need no extra push-pieces to access the feature. The exquisite and shiny Ring Command bezel is directly associated with the complicated Calibre 9001 movement.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is available only in yellow gold, white gold and Everose gold. However, you can make your Sky-Dweller more handsome and elegant with a quality luxury watch strap.
