Launched in 2012, the Sky-Dweller was initially available in the choices of precious metals such as 18ct Yellow, White and Rose Gold. With the ability to set two time zones, annual calendar and date, Rolex have never produced such a complicated movement which proved an instant hit.
5 years later Rolex have impressed us again by producing this watch in stainless steel and bi-metal. First unveiled on March 22nd 2017 at the Basel Watch Fair the watch has a variation of Blue, White & Black dial formats. If you choose to go for the steel & 18ct yellow gold model you have the choice of Champagne, Black, and White dials.
The 42mm stainless steel model bears the reference 326934 and holds a solid 18ct white gold fluted bezel as standard and is fitted to the stainless steel oyster bracelet with the latest Oyster Clasp and 5mm extension link for additional comfort. The bi-metal model holds the reference number 326933 and comes with the solid 18ct yellow gold fluted bezel and the oyster bracelet in stainless steel and solid 18ct yellow gold. The calibre 9001 movement still remains the same as the solid gold pieces and is water resistant to 100 meters/330 feet.
The current UK RRP for the Stainless Steel Model is £10,600 and £12,600 for the Bi-Metal, which is not too harsh when you consider the complicated movement within! Unfortunately it is extremely unlikely to be getting one anytime soon if you haven’t already had your name down on the list as the waiting list! You might be expecting to pay quite a large percentage over list price if you are feeling impatient when the first models appear on the scene late September this year.
