Sky-Dweller NOS Stickered
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is so much more than the modern ‘look at me’ watch some people make it out to be. It is one of Rolex’s most ingenious and modern watchmaking highlights, with a newly developed caliber featuring a second timezone, including a date and a calendar function, all operated by the rotatable 18k (white) gold fluted bezel in combination with the winding crown. Once you fully understand the details behind this intricate movement and the way this watch operates, I’m sure that even the nay-sayers will change their minds and admit that the Sky-Dweller is a genius and innovative watch design.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is a true travellers watch with an innovative system for setting all the functions. As mentioned before, setting the functions is done via the fluted bezel and the crown. This bezel features the so-called Ring Command system which is a unique feature to Rolex, or any other watch brand for that matter. A fixed inverted red triangle on the striking blue sunburst dial, points to the chosen reference time – the time at home or at the traveller’s usual workplace – this time can be read on the off-centre 24-hour disc. At a glance, this 24-hour display clearly distinguishes daytime hours from night-time hours in the other time zone. A deep red rectangle in one of the 12 windows around the dial (in line with the hour markers) indicates the current month, a striking characteristic of the Saros annual calendar. This ingenious mechanism simplifies life for the wearer of the watch, who no longer needs to think about adjusting the date at the end of a 30-day month. The annual calendar displays the correct date throughout the year, only one adjustment is needed in 12 months time – on March 1st (February having only 28 or 29 days). The date is connected to local time and automatically changes according to the traveller’s local time zone.
This Rolex Sky-Dweller NOS remains in new and fully stickered conditions, and is a watch truly unworn, with each and every protective factory sticker still present in the right place. The watch was bought, driven home, and was directly stored into the safe. The movement was fully tested by our skilled watchmakers, and the mechanics still perform according the 2023 COSC specifications – as always, she will be delivered with our 24 month warranty.
