Rumours were solid before BaselWorld even began. Like a year ago, it appears to be that Rolex parted with an excessive number of traces of what was coming to us. The name was disclosed as of now, yet we surmise that no one saw this coming! The Rolex Sky-Dweller ref.326939 (white gold) is a dress watch rather than a games watch, however incorporates some exceptionally decent (new) highlights. We took some live photographs today at BaselWorld 2012 and got a press unit to discover more about this timepiece.
The type 9001 development empowers the Sky-Dweller to have a date, month, 24-hour sign and a second timezone. Likewise, the Sky-Dweller has a momentary yearly schedule at 3 o’clock. Except for the month February, throughout the times of the month work without changing the date. Rolex utilizes a protected component for this, named SAROS. It naturally separates between 30-day and 31-day months, with the exception of February, which is neither of them.
Rolex likewise utilizes another month pointer, utilizing an external ring on the dial with little openings over the hour markers to show the quantity of the month (1 – 12). A noteworthy and viable strategy for showing the period of the year.
How would one be able to set every one of these highlights on this watch with just 1 crown? Indeed, here comes the Ring Command setting framework set up. The bi-directional bezel sets the function(date, nearby time or reference time) and further setting is being finished by utilizing the crown. Rolex required 60 components to insert the Ring Command framework in the Rolex Sky-Dweller.
Available in a few forms, the 42mm Rolex Sky-Dweller comes in white gold (ref.326939), yellow gold (ref.326938) and EVEROSE gold (ref. 326935). The last comes on a calfskin strap.
To be straightforward, we weren’t excessively intrigued by its looks when we previously saw it today at BaselWorld. Nonetheless, in the wake of perusing the details of the watch, we are at any rate intrigued by its usefulness and specialized highlights. Maybe, similarly as with a ton of beneficial things, it needs to develop on us.
Other Rolex BaselWorld 2012 oddities are the Submariner No Date, the Datejust II with smooth bezel and another variety of the Yacht-Master (blue dial and new style collapsing catches). Pictures appeared underneath, more data will follow soon.
