Cheapest Premium Luxury Fashion Replica Rolex Sky-Dweller For Sale Online
Launched in 2012, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Replica Rolex Sky-Dweller has, in its eight-year life span, become an object of cult collectability and one of the most desirable modern classic watches around.
Jay-Z's got the 18K yellow gold and champagne-coloured dial model, The Notorious One Conor McGregor's got the 18K Everose gold and chocolate-dial model, and even Tom Hardy, one of the finest actors of his generation, rocks the 18K white-gold and ivory-dial model. But beyond its obvious wrist swagger represented by its 42mm case size and 14mm case height, did you know that this watch is the equivalent of a mechanical supercomputer, combining two of horology's most functional complications, the annual calendar and the GMT function?
Further, the way the watch has been set up provides unparalleled legibility and clarity when reading the month, date and time for both local and home time. Using an innovative and totally unique Ring Command system that interacts between the rotatable bezel, the winding crown and the movement, the Sky-Dweller is also the easiest and most intuitive-to-use annual calendar around.
Before delving into the specifics of how to use, set and read the Sky-Dweller as both an annual calendar and a multi-timezone watch, let's first look at the history of these complications.
While it might be an amusing play on the words Replica Rolex Sky-Dweller the name given to Rolex's famous saturation diving watch the objective of the Sky-Dweller is quite different from that tool watch's pragmatic roots. Instead, leading up to the model's launch in 2012, Rolex realised that travel had become an everyday reality for the majority of business people and even the tribe of transglobal luxury travellers all circumnavigating the earth multiple times a year.
Rolex understood that for many of us who go through extended stretches waking up each day in a different city, it is our wristwatch that keeps us rooted and oriented, helping us navigate our way through the adventures that comprise modern life.
So what Rolex did with the Sky-Dweller was to create the ultimate companion watch for the modern traveller. A watch that, at one glance, gives you a perfect reading of time at home and also where you are right now. A watch that gives you perfect and easy reading of both date and month. A watch that is so intelligent that it knows which months have 30 days and which months have 31 and adjusts the date for you accordingly.
And finally, it is a watch that, despite all this incredible ability, is fun, intuitive and easy to use. Welcome to the world of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller.
What is an annual calendar, and why is it, to me, the most pragmatic and useful complication around? What you need to know is that the Sky-Dweller is genius-level smart despite its fun, easy-going affability.
Like a MENSA-qualified supermodel with an IQ of 162 that reads Martin Heidegger in her free time and solves seemingly impossible mathematical problems while performing Ashtanga inversions yet is laidback enough to watch the game and have a beer with you and your boys, the Sky-Dweller is the total package.
It is an annual calendar watch that automatically calculates which months in the year have 30 days and which months have 31 days. Meaning that as long as you keep it wound, which is relatively easy considering how quickly its ultra-efficient, bidirectional rotor charges its barrel, you need only correct it once each year, on March 1st.
The annual calendar is derived from the perpetual calendar, which is a watch capable of automatically compensating for the shifting 30/31-day rhythm of the months as well as accounting for the 28 days in February, and even knowing when the extra day every leap year is. The first watch with a perpetual calendar mechanism was created in 1762 by British watchmaker Thomas Mudge and became a popular feature of pocket watches for discerning gentlemen the following century.
In contrast, the annual calendar was a relatively modern invention. The first annual calendar was only unveiled in 1996. The rationale for its creation was simple. By removing the mechanism related to the leap year and adding the need to adjust the watch just once each year on March 1st, the movement of the watch could be made more robust and less costly, leading to a watch that is almost every bit as pragmatic as the perpetual calendar but at a more accessible price.
