Rolex Sky-Dweller Features two Separate Timezones

By Paul Joseph

Rolex has released its first ever timepiece fitted with two separate timezones on the dial.

The Rolex Sky-Dweller has been launched along with a promotional video explaining the elegant mechanics of the watch’s dual-date function.

Available in 18-carat yellow, white or everose gold, the watch also includes a centrally mounted GMT hand.

In addition to the GMT complication, the Sky-Dweller has an annual calendar system dubbed the SAROS annual calendar. The mechanism offers the date and month, with the date easily seen under the magnifier lens on the sapphire crystal at 3 o’clock, and the month told via darkened rectangles located outside of the hour indicator ring.

Other notable features include a 42mm case, a matching gold colour bracelet or leather strap, and a new Rolex in-house made calibre 9001 automatic movement with a three-day power reserve.

Prices for the Rolex Sky-Dweller have yet to be announced but are expected to be in the region of $50,000.
