An elegant watch for world travellers, the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is a compelling timepiece of revolutionary design that perfectly blends technological sophistication and is easy to use. A technological masterpiece protected by 14 patents, the Sky-Dweller provides the information global travellers need to easily keep track of time, in an unprecedented and highly original way. To set its functions quickly and easily, the Sky-Dweller is also equipped with a new patented interface: the rotatable Ring Command bezel.
DUAL TIME ZONE AND 24-HOUR DISPLAY
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller features a dual time zone that is as intuitive to read as it is simple to use. The display’s highly original design endows the watch with an aesthetic identity all of its own. Global travelers can read the reference time – the time at home or at their usual place of work – via a rotating off-centre disc visible on the dial. A fixed inverted red triangle on the dial points to the wearer’s chosen reference time.
SAROS ANNUAL CALENDAR
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is equipped with a revolutionary annual calendar offering unparalleled robustness and reliability for such a complex watchmaking function. This calendar’s qualities are attributable to an ingenious mechanism named Saros, patented by Rolex. Its original design was inspired by the astronomical phenomenon of the same name.
THE SKY-DWELLER, SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER
Like all Rolex watches, each Sky-Dweller is certified as a Superlative Chronometer. This exclusive designation affirms that it has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, which exceed normal watchmaking standards. These tests are carried out on the fully assembled watch, in order to guarantee its superlative performance on the wrist.
BRACELET AND CLASP, SECURE AND COMFORTABLE
The Sky-Dweller is available with an Oyster bracelet or an alligator leather strap, and is equipped with a folding Oysterclasp designed by Rolex. The Oyster bracelets feature the Easylink rapid extension link, another Rolex exclusivity. This ingenious system allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, providing additional comfort in every situation.
