WHY THIS WATCH
A True Novelty
First introduced in 2012, the Rolex SkyDweller celebrates it's first decade in 2022. Usually, I'd go into the history of the watch, but for this watch, that's not happening as this watch was a true novelty for Rolex. The SkyDweller was designed from the ground up, without any history to draw upon, something which is very rare for Rolex.
A Brand New Calibre: Calibre 9001
The Calibre 9001 was created specifically for this watch. The 9001 is an automatic, COSC certified, movement with a 72 hour Power Reserve. Rolex fitted the 9001 with it's famous Parachrom hairspring, which has antimagnetic qualities, and is resistant to temperature fluctuations. What's more interesting however, is how this movement functions seamlessly with the rotating bezel, which I'll expand upon shortly.
The Ultimate Traveler's Watch
Unlike it's cousin the GMT, the SkyDweller was built for Travelers, not pilots. This watch makes setting the local and travel time seamless. For the Rolex Skydweller, you actually use the beautiful 18k bezel, which rotates into 3 positions to set the month, date, travel time, and local time. Rotating the bezel to the farthest left position, allows you the set the travel time via the crown. One more rotation of the bezel to the right, allows you to set the local time via the hour hand. Finally, the last rotation to the right allows you to set the month (via the red marker on the hour hand) and the date.
In addition to having a GMT function, this watch has an Annual Calendar function, which accounts for the different number of days (30/31) in the different months. This is done by moving the red hour marker to the appropriate month and setting the date. Thats all you have to do. The movement will account for the correct number of days in the current month. Note that this excludes Leap Years, when February has 29 days, for which you'll need a perpetual calendar to account for.
Although this watch is large and thick on paper (42mm diameter and 14mm thick), it's only 50.5mm lug to lug, so it's fitting pretty nicely on my average 6.5 inch wrist. I just love playing around the bezel setting. It makes me want to book a flight just so I can set the timezones. The Annual Calendar is truly useful. I really like this watch in the Blue Dial, but the price is unapproachable, so the black dial on this one is the next best thing if you want a darker toned dial. The oyster bracelet is the way to go here, as I think the Jubilee is not appropriate for such a thick and large watch.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
This is a one-owner watch that was Purchased from an Authorized Rolex Dealer in 2021. The watch comes with Box and Papers, including warranty card from 2021. This watch is still under ROLEX WARRANTY for 5 years from 2021.
The watch is in Near Mint Pre-Owned Condition with only minor wear on the case and bracelet. I would say the watch is around 95%. There are no dents or deep scratches on the case or bracelet. The Crystal is free from scratches. The watch is mechanically sound, with the bezel clicking into each setting position properly and the watch keeping excellent time.
