of gold and steel on a Rolex watch, has been a sig­na­ture fea­ture of the brand since 1933. It’s an aus­pi­cious meet­ing of two met­als: one, noble and pre­cious, at­trac­tive for its lus­tre and sta­bil­ity; the other, highly re­sis­tant, known for its strength and re­li­a­bil­ity. All of these qual­i­ties per­fectly mir­ror the ele­gance and per­for­mance that come to­gether in a Rolex watch.

Rolex is in­tro­duc­ing the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sky-Dweller, its clas­sic watch for world trav­ellers, for the first time in a choice of yel­low Role­sor or white Role­sor ver­sions - com­bin­ing 904L steel and 18k yel­low or white gold.

The dials now fea­ture rec­tan­gu­lar in­dex hour mark­ers and longer hands, as well as a Chro­ma­light dis­play with lon­glast­ing lu­mi­nes­cence, which en­hances leg­i­bil­ity. Like all Rolex watches, the new Sky-Dweller car­ries the Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­de­fined by Rolex in 2015 to en­sure sin­gu­lar per­for­mance on the wrist.

The Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sky-Dweller is a com­pelling time­piece of revo­lu­tion­ary de­sign that blends to per­fec­tion tech­no­log­i­cal so­phis­ti­ca­tion and ease of use. A tech­no­log­i­cal mas­ter­piece pro­tected by 11 patents, it pro­vides, in an un­prece­dented and highly orig­i­nal way, the in­for­ma­tion global trav­ellers need to eas­ily keep track of time.

The watch in­cludes a dual time zone, with lo­cal time read via cen­tre hands and a ref­er­ence time dis­play in a 24-hour for­mat read via a ro­tat­ing off-cen­tre disc on the dial; a par­tic­u­larly in­no­va­tive an­nual cal­en­dar named Saros – af­ter the astro­nom­i­cal phe­nom­e­non of the same name – that re­quires only one date ad­just­ment a year, when the month changes from Fe­bru­ary to March; and a month dis­play by means of 12 aper­tures around the cir­cum­fer­ence of the dial. To set its func­tions quickly and eas­ily, the Sky-Dweller is also equipped with an in­no­va­tive patented in­ter­face: the ro­tat­able Ring Com­mand bezel.

The Sky-Dweller’s Oys­ter case, guar­an­teed wa­ter­proof to a depth of 100 me­tres ( 330 feet), is a paragon of ro­bust­ness. Its char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally shaped mid­dle case is crafted from a solid block of 904L steel. Its fluted case back is her­met­i­cally screwed down with a spe­cial tool that al­lows only Rolex watch­mak­ers to ac­cess the move­ment.

The wind­ing crown, fit­ted with the Twin­lock dou­ble wa­ter­proof­ness sys­tem, screws down se­curely against the case. The crys­tal, with a Cy­clops lens at 3 o’clock for easy read­ing of the date, is made of vir­tu­ally scratch­proof sap­phire. The wa­ter­proof Oys­ter case pro­vides op­ti­mum pro­tec­tion for high­pre­ci­sion move­ment.

The Sky-Dweller is equipped with cal­i­bre 9001, a self-wind­ing me­chan­i­cal move­ment en­tirely de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured by Rolex. Pro­tected by seven patents, it is one of the most com­plex cal­i­bres ever de­vel­oped by the brand. Its ar­chi­tec­ture, man­u­fac­tur­ing
