As the most complex watch on sale at Rolex today, Sky-Dweller brings together 11 patents, all of which cover the basic areas of reliability, precision, ergonomics and waterproof performance, fully demonstrating Rolex’s superior technology. For a long time, Sky-Dweller has always been unattainable because it has only precious metal watches. This year, it finally launched a platinum stainless steel watch.
Made of 904L stainless steel and 18K white gold, the watch functions include two time zone displays, with the central hand indicating the time of the place, and the 24-hour off-axis dial shows the time of departure; the annual calendar function is automatically performed by the annual calendar system called Saros Differentiate between 30-day small moon and 31-day big moon; and Ring Command’s rotating outer ring, which is an easy-to-use interface for the wearer to set various functions of the watch.
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is equipped with a dual time zone display, which is easy to read and easy to operate. This watch can simultaneously display the time in dual time zones, that is, the central hand indicates the time at the location, and the off-axis dial shows the time of departure, making Sky-Dweller’s reading clear and unique. Sky-Dweller allows the wearer to adjust the watch to the desired time zone during the trip, while also clearly showing the time of departure, such as the time of home or work. Suppose you live in Geneva and you are heading to New York, your departure time will be Geneva time, and your home time will be New York time.
The local time is indicated by the traditional central hour, minute and second hands. The hour hand can be adjusted independently and moved clockwise or counterclockwise in units of one hour. Therefore, the time can be changed easily, and the minute and second hands are not affected when adjusting the local time Operation will not affect the display of departure time. In addition, the watch will not stop when adjusting, so that time can be kept accurate.
The public price of this stainless steel model has not yet been released. The public price of the Sky-Dweller series has been more than 300,000. This time, a combination of stainless steel and platinum materials is used, and the price of the watch should drop significantly.
