In 2012, Rolex’s most complex series, the Sky-Dweller, was released. It is equipped with the brand’s most complex movement and has a strong brand influence. It relies on several excellent patented technologies and inherits the brand’s traditional triangular pit bezel decoration and other characteristics. Once launched, it received extensive attention from watch enthusiasts from all walks of life and became one of the hotly debated models. In 2017, Rolex added a new job to this series with classic aesthetic characteristics at the Basel Jewelry and Watch Fair, which is the Rolex Sky-Dweller white gold and steel watch. Basic categories such as waterproof performance fully demonstrate the superior technology of Rolex.
The new model uses a 42mm white gold/steel case, a combination of 904L stainless steel and 18ct white gold, which perfectly combines the reliability of stainless steel with the luxurious and excellent qualities of white gold, which are alternately polished and satin-finished—inheriting the brand’s characteristic Ring Command triangular pit pattern two-way rotating outer ring, adding classic connotation and charm to the inch above the wrist. The crown has a screw-in double-lock double waterproof system to ensure the excellent waterproof performance of the watch, showing the rock-solid reliability of the Rolex brand.
The deep midnight blue sun-patterned dial presents a gradient effect, which stands out in the crowded daily life. Legibility is one of the hallmarks of the Senator World Time. In terms of color matching, all numbers, letters, and function displays on the dial are white, contrasting sharply with the blue dial. Layout, the watch shows the local time with a central hand, while the home time is displayed on the subdial at midnight. Display the time in two time zones simultaneously, saving the wearer the trouble of calculating the time difference. In addition, the small circular window at midnight shows the day and night conditions in the hometown, and the curved window shows the power reserve.
The Sky-Dweller watch enjoys a sunburst dial covered with a long-lasting blue light material, presenting an excellent gradient blue visual enjoyment. The skeleton hands and the hour markers of the watch are covered with an easy-to-read Chromalight bright display, which can clearly show the current time even in a dark environment, which is very convenient.
Guaranteed water-resistant to 100 meters, the Sky-Dweller case is the epitome of ruggedness. The uniquely shaped middle case is cast in one piece of solid 904L steel. The triangular grooved bottom cover is screwed with a unique tool exclusive to the brand to seal the case, so only a Rolex watchmaker can open the movement. The winding crown has a double-lock double waterproof system firmly screwed to the topic. The mirror surface is made of blue crystal, which cannot easily be scratched. A small convex lens at 3 o’clock makes it easy to read the calendar. The Sky-Dweller’s water-resistant Oyster case provides optimum protection for the exact movement.
