The Sky-Dweller is one of the best Rolex timepieces that you can get today and a perfect companion for frequent travelers. If you have been considering on getting a Rolex, this should be on your top 2 choices for 3 reasons. First, the gorgeous dial design which features an offset 24 hour dial for second time zone. Second, the super comfortable bracelet and third and most importantly, the fact that this is the model that has the most complex movement, design and engineer by Rolex. A movement that was made exclusively for the Sky-Dweller.
The Sky-Dweller was first release in 2012, in gold variations but in 2017 Rolex finally release the timepiece in Oystersteel with white gold bezel.
This is Rose gold version is reference number 336235 with the best combination you can get from Rolex (at least in my personal opinion). 18k Everose gold with chocolate dial and paired with Rolex’s black Oysterflex bracelet. This is a bracelet that was developed by Rolex in 2015 and added to the Sky-Dweller collection in 2020. It combines the reliability of a metal bracelet with the comfort and flexibility of an rubber strap. On the back of the strap there’s a cushion system that helps to stabilize the timepiece and keep your wrist cool.
The bracelet is paired with an 18K Everose Oysterclasp which features Rolex Gridlock extension system.
The case measures 42mm in diameter with a thickness of 14mm and 50mm when measure from lug to lug. It comes with a screw down crown and 18k Everose fluted bezel. But this is not your typical fixed Rolex fluted bezel, this one is a rotatable bezel which is equipped with Rolex Ring Command system that is used to select the timepiece functions.
The beautiful chocolate dial features dual time zone, date window at 3 O’clock and 12 windows around the dial for the annual calendar function. The windows are located next to each hour marker and the current month is indicated in red in one of the 12 windows.
Other features of this dial include a red arrow under the Rolex crown for indicating the time on the second time zone, polished rose gold hands and applied hour markers filled with bright chromalight display.
Under the hood is Rolex’s caliber 900. This is so far Rolex most complex caliber. This automatic In house movement works at 4 hertz and as expected from Rolex, it has a precision of -2 +2 seconds per day.
The movement is chronometer certified with dual time zone and annual calendar It uses 40 jewels and has a power reserve of 72 hours. This caliber also have hacking seconds and water resistance is rated at 100 meters.
