Rolex’s GMT Watch was designed for commercial aviation use, allowing pilots to keep track of time in their departure and arrival time zones via a second hour hand. The new Rolex Sky-Dweller is also a dual timezone timepiece, but it accomplishes this via a complication mechanism revolving the second timezone in the center of the dial. Unlike the other tool models which offer a stainless steel option, the Sky-Dweller is only available in precious metals. Despite this, the tool DNA is evident in features such as the crystal’s ubiquitous bubble magnifying the day of the month and the bracelet clasp that secures the watch to your wrist. The Sky-Dweller goes beyond merely monitoring time to making a statement about its owner. Those who choose this timeless timepiece combine the urge for practicality and reliability with a large portion of Captain Jack Sparrow rapscallionism, if we may be so bold as to coin a new term; Rolex.com.
