Hey Mr. Brown Sky!

Rolex Sky-Dweller Everose Chocolate Brown Rose Gold Mens Watch 326135
                The name Rolex is known for many things in the watch world, but new releases are not among them.  Sure movements get upgraded, designs tweaked, new clasps, bracelets, etc. but it’s not every day that Rolex builds an entirely new watch from the ground up.  Well imagine the clamor when in 2012 they did just that, for the first time in 20 years, and bestowed upon the world the Rolex Sky-Dweller.  Needless to say, through the unbelievable hype, this watch stepped up.

…It’s complicated

                The Sky-Master is arguably Rolex’s most complicated watch to date, featuring a dual-time zone (in the form of an inner dial, rather than a GMT hand) and an annual calendar. Watch collectors who flock to complications may have shied away from Rolex in the past, but the Sky-Dweller will certainly make them take pause.  Another feature previously unheard of is the bezel, featuring Ring Command, allowing the wearer to set date, local time, and reference time with a single crown setting position, simply by rotating the bezel
                Of course Rolex wouldn’t dare sacrifice the crisp design that their fans demand, regardless of complications.  In fact, you’d be hard pressed to tell this watch was an annual calendar at all.  The month is displayed by 12 apertures around the circumference of the dial, as opposed to a separate subdial, making this perhaps the subtlest annual calendar on the market today.  The dial itself is a beautiful as you’d expect out of new, hyped up Rolex model.  The black markers offer just enough contrast with the chocolate dial for easy visibility without being spotted from across the room, and it all blends perfectly with Rolex’s Everose case.  So if you’re in the market for a complicated timepiece without the appearance of a crossword puzzle on your wrist, for the first time in history, it might be time for a Rolex.
