Rolex Sky-Dweller Rose Gold Gent’s Watch
This was one of the good surprises of Basel world 2017, the Rolex watch with one of the most complex movements ever produced by the brand. The Sky-Dweller combines the local time-zone display with the conventional hands, the home-time indication on a 24 hrs rotating disc by a red pointer, and an annual calendar (the months are indicated thanks to twelve small windows next to the hour markers – August is shown in the picture below at 8 o’clock). To set the watch, you use both the bezel and the crown. The bezel allows you to select which of the three functions you want to set. Then everything is adjusted using the winding crown. Simple, user-friendly and reliable – not that you would expect anything else from Rolex. And now, with the steel case and bracelet, this exclusive watch becomes almost affordable… almost.
Quick facts: 42 mm steel case with white gold bezel – 100 meters water resistance – automatic in-house movement with hours, minutes, seconds, dual time and annual calendar. Steel bracelet with Oyster clasp.
