Rolex has done it again! Radiant, beautiful beyond comparison, powerful, and astonishing all describe the brand new Rolex Sky-Dweller that debuted today. There are so many new features to make your life simple, functional, and give you resounding confidence in ownership. It would not be at all surprising it this luxury watch is touted as the watch of the decade, or even the century.Rolex Sky DwellerOther watchmakers must be awe struck at this magnificent display of master craftsmanship and design. If you needed a catalyst for your appetite of luxury watches, this new Rolex just may be the impetus for any connoisseur of Rolex or any fine timepiece. Gather your thoughts and focus as you read some of the most incredible information about the Sky-Dweller.A Watch for the AgesAt first glance, there is a noticeably simplistic look to the watch regarding its functions. The hands are sleek, subtle and have special functions. At the top, an inverted red triangle is displayed to draw the eye to a feature utilized as a second time monitor; this will be explained shortly.Also visible and extremely obvious are apertures located above each hour indicator. Still in place is the appearance of the smooth motion of the second hand. Not unusual for Rolex is the ring surrounding the outside portion of the watch face. However, this is a feature as well; wait for it, details soon.Speaking of watch face, this new addition does not present the larger more traditional look of a Rolex. It gives the appearance of being sleeker and prominently displaying its characteristics yielding an appeal for the non-traditionalist. It is, however, clearly a specimen for the eye to behold. Coming in three models, white gold, gold, and rose gold – which is gorgeous – the look should be able to sooth the savage beast in us all who are anxiously pursuing the Sky-Dweller. Not even my personal favorite, the Rolex Sea-Dweller, compares.Details You Have Been Waiting For…Ring Command BezelLet’s begin with the watch face since it is so obvious and harmless looking. The ring that surrounds this face actually moves, indeed, it is a selector of functions. There are three functions that allow the watch functions to be set using an interface. The Ring Command Bezel is used to set the date, local time, and reference time. Reference time is located in the center of the face where a 24 hour ring identifies what time it is at a glance back home; very useful for travelers across time zones.Revolutionary Annual CalendarYou may be thinking, “What is so special about a calendar function?”. Fair enough, there is a reason it is called revolutionary. As mentioned earlier, there is an aperture located directly above each hour indicator. At first glance, it looks as though it has a design purpose; not so. It will be filled with a dark color depending on the month of the year. 1 o’clock is January, 2 o’clock is February, and so on. What’s more, the watch only has to be adjusted for the date once each year in February. All of the months have been accounted for through an inspirational concept stemming from the Saros System; alignment of the sun, moon and earth. Superb idea!A True Inspiration Beyond Our Time
