The Rolex Sky-Dweller was launched in 2012 as the brand’ first totally new watch collection in over past 10 years. Obviously, the releasing time is actually proper and significant, this is not only because it was a whole new reference from the brand, but also was a watch that embraced a new movement with a new complication for fake Rolex – an annual calendar and GMT – and it remains Rolex’ most complicated watch. New for Baselworld 2017 is a refreshed model in gold and steel with some tweaks to make the dial sleeker. These new “Rolesor” models are also less than half the cost of the previous versions, which will open the line up to an entirely new market.
I guess it would be more significant to talk about the Rolex Sky-Dweller a little more, because it is the model which many people are not familiar with it. When it was launched in 2012, the Rolex Sky-Dweller came as a shock to some extent, since Rolex seems to be very backward-looking and primarily introduces new watches only with minor variations or small updates. With the new model and movement Rolex had made available for the first time, an annual calendar and second time zone watch was notably creative for two big reasons.
To begin with, to show the month of the year, replica Rolex added a small aperture to the easily existent 12 indices used to indicate the hour in most watches. It’ a very direct way to read the month and a clever way of displaying it without adding clutter. The red color used to display the month is echoed in the triangle that indicates the GMT time, and it looks nice in a different way with each of the dial colors: blue, white, black, and champagne on these new “Rolesor” Rolex Sky-Dweller replica watches.
The other part of the Rolex Sky-Dweller which is creative as well is the patented Rolex Ring Command innovation that makes use of the bezel as a sort of multi-switch to allow only the crown to be used so as to transform the time and the date. By turning the Rolex Sky-Dweller fluted bezel a quarter turn left until it clicks, the crown can now be used to quickly alter the hour both forward and backward.
Turn it one more quarter turn and now you can change the minutes’ hand, hacking the seconds’ hand. By turning it once again, and now the crown can be used to quickly cycle the date forward and backward, which will also move the month indicator as the date passes 30 or 31, depending on the current month. So if the indicator is showing March, passing the 31st day, the month indicator moves to the 4 o’clock index indicating April. Offering all these functions in the annual calendar/GMT Rolex Sky-Dweller watch is the Rolex caliber 9001 which has a 3-day power reserve.
As we talked about, Rolex is essentially offering a much more affordable version of its most complicated replica watch with the stainless steel and gold Rolesor versions. I think it’ obviously to see it as the answer to the question nobody asked, but as to my point, that’ a little cynical as I really think there are buyers searching for something more up market & with more personalities than the Rolex Datejust.
