Baselworld 2017: The Watch For The World Traveller
At Baselworld 2017, the world’s largest watch and jewellery fair, Rolex has announced the introduction of 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 Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow or white gold.
This model now features rectangular index hour markers and longer hands, as well as a Chromalight display with long-lasting luminescence, which enhances legibility. A technological masterpiece protected by 11 patents, the Sky-Dweller provides the information global travellers need to easily keep track of time. The Chromalight display 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 it is also equipped with an innovative patented interface: the rotatable Ring Command bezel.
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.
