Surprise for high fashion watch
This watch became a real surprise for fans of the amazing novelties, because all the details of the model were carefully concealed from the public by Rolex representatives. The Sky – Dweller watch is a calendar with the function of a second zone time – GMT. Before watches with this combination of complications were introduced by Blancpain. But Rolex decided to go a completely different way to achieve the same result.
First of all, Rolex got a great experience in creating simple and reliable GMT mechanism, using it for model in 2012. This invention is combined with a brand new automatic movement caliber 9001. At its creation seven inventions were patented. That’s why Rolex Sky-Dweller so much surprised experts.
All functions of the watch are controlled by the crown which is synchronized with the movements of the original grooved bezel. Something similar can be seen in Richard Mille watches, but Rolex first proved that such mechanism can be used in mass watch production.
The new invention was called the Ring Command. The bezel of this watch can be moved into three positions to show the date and local time and time of the second time zone. All of these functions at any moment can be rotated forward or backward, depending on the desires of the wearer.
An innovative mechanism in the luxurious case
Rolex Sky-Dweller watch has a white, yellow or 18 carat pink gold case. Bidirectional rotating bezel has a special corrugated surface, which greatly facilitates its use. Water resistance is up to 100 meters.
The functions of the chronometer: it shows the hours and minutes by using central hands, time of the second zone on a 24-hour scale with instant setup. The watch has a calendar with the date in an aperture at “3” position and second pointer with an accurate time setting.
The caliber 9001 mechanism with self-winding has a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per second and power reserve of 72 hours. The Rolex model has COSC certification, which indicates the extraordinary precision of the mechanism.
The watch can be both steel with a sectional bracelet from the same material as the case, and pink gold with a brown alligator leather strap.
