A Guide to New Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches for 2020
September 7th, 2020
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is one of the most complicated creations in the brand’s catalogue. The watch features dual time zones, a sophisticated calendar complication and a cool bezel. What amplifies the collection’s glamour in 2020 is the brand’s proprietary Oysterflex bracelet.
Rolex introduced the new Sky-Dweller watches for 2020 and upgraded the collection by fitting them with the Oysterflex bracelet. No doubt, the biggest 2020 news from Rolex was the launch of the brand new generation of Submariner watches, featuring the biggest ever 41mm case.
However, the new Rolex Sky-Dweller timepieces also grabbed the headlines. The Sky-Dweller was available in only one bracelet, and that was, the iconic sporty Oyster bracelet after the brand discontinued the gold version with leather straps a few years back.
Now, the Oysterflex is another bracelet choice added to the popular collection. So let’s explore the new Rolex Sky-Dweller watches for 2020.
The New 2020 Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches
Among all other appealing 2020 launches from Rolex, the Sky-Dweller with an Oysterflex bracelet is also an eye-catching release.
Rolex introduced the Sky-Dweller in six versions – yellow gold, as well as the Everose gold editions, come with three dial choices.
- The yellow gold Sky-Dweller watches have the choice of white, champagne or black sunray dials.
- However, the Everose editions have the choice of dark rhodium, chocolate brown or dark rhodium dials.
Rolex equipped the new editions with similar lug hoods like the currently discontinued models.
It offers the Oysterflex a more homogenous look along with the watch case.
With the introduction of the Oysterflex bracelet, Rolex is ideally boosting the sporting spirit of the popular Sky-Dweller collection.
Did Rolex Make Any Other Changes?
Rolex has not made any significant changes to the new Sky-Dweller like the new Submariner 2020 watch.
The case and the movement remain the same as its previous Sky-Dweller siblings.
- The new Sky-Dweller still houses the patented Calibre 9001 movement.
- Out of 380 different parts of the movement, 60 are employed for the innovative Ring Command Bezel.
However, you can adjust the time, secondary time-zone, date and annual calendar employing the Ring Command Bezel.
The new Rolex Sky-Dweller retains its symbolic annual calendar complication, known as SAROS. And its most significant feature is the month display.
The Rolex Oysterflex Bracelet
Rolex offered its patented Oysterflex bracelet to the Sky-Dweller for the ever first time. The manufacturer says that you can describe Oysterflex as a bracelet instead of a strap.
- The Oysterflex consists of two blades inside that are made of nickel and titanium alloy.
- It offers incredible flexibility and innate strength.
- However, the Oysterflex is externally covered by a hypoallergenic black Elastomer. It allows the bracelet to mould according to the wrist of the user.
- The raised centre section on the outer coating offers an exquisite texture and depth.
The Oysterflex bears the comfort and look of a rubber strap but durability like a metal bracelet.
Moreover, the Oysterflex bracelets of the new Sky-Dweller timepieces are fitted with the new Glidelock extension system.
Overall, the new Sky-Dweller comes with both unique and useful functionalities. And the Oysterflex jet-black bracelet boosts the overall elegance of the collection.
