The Sky-Dweller is a stunning timepiece with an annual calendar and ‘Gmt, dual-time features. ‘” The Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph is one of Rolex’s most complex models, yet the Sky-Dweller equals and maybe exceeds that complexity.
The original Sky-Dweller was released by Rolex in 2012. Originally, this 42 mm gold version was the only one available. Two-tone versions of the watch are now available from Rolex in stainless steel and gold.
The ref. 326934 in stainless steel and white gold is worth a closer look for those who like a more subtle style. In addition to being one of the most economical Sky-Dwellers, the model with a blue dial is particularly popular. Keep an eye out for refs. 326938 (Everose gold) and 326935 if you prefer yellow gold timepieces.
In terms of pricing, the Oyster bracelets for both watches are made of solid gold and are at the top of the Sky-line. Dweller’s Alligator-leather straps are also available in gold models.
The Sky-Dweller is equipped with an in-house timepiece, the caliber 9001. This movement boasts a 72-hour power reserve and is certified as a Superlative Chronometer like all recent Rolex models. This distinction means that the watch only deviates from the reference time by a maximum of +/-2 seconds per day.
However, the caliber 9001’s Ring Command bezel is what actually sets it apart from the rest. All 30 and 31-day months are included in the movement’s calendar. There is no need for manual intervention other than at the end of February each year.
The Sky-Dweller uses a 24-hour disc to show the additional time zone. It’s common for users to set this feature to their home time and then to adjust the central hands to the local time when they’re on vacation.
