At Basel World, Haute Time was given the amazing opportunity to get a first look of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller. Set to debut in the Fall of 2012, this will be one of the hautest watches on the market.
The watch currently has 14 patents, five of which are new. It comes with Dual Time Zone and 24 hour display and the combined display of local time via centre watch hands and reference time via an off-centre disc makes the Sky-Dweller easy to read on a very cool looking face.
The watch has a fixed red triangle that indicates the reference time and the 24-hour display allows the wearer to distinguish daytime and night-time hours. The watch also has the saros annual calendar, which is a ingenious patented mechanism inspired by an astronomical phenomenon that is able to differentiate the brand from 30 to 31 day months. The watches come in white gold, yellow gold (my favorite) and pink gold with a alligator strap.
It was a huge honor for Haute Time to be able to get such inside access to Rolex and its new timepieces at Basel World. Check out the video above to see the exclusive video of the Rolex Sky-Dweller before its launch in Fall 2012 .
