The Rolex Sky-Dweller has often been deemed as the watch that all world travelers need. Granted, this is definitely a marketing gimmick but it also has a certain amount of truth to it. There are a lot of reasons that this watch works exceptionally well for anyone who spends a lot of time traveling, especially if you're traversing the entire globe. For starters, it's a Rolex. That in and of itself says quite a lot. Aside from that fact, it's designed for people who travel all over the world, effectively allowing them to keep up with the time in different parts of the world without having to constantly calculate the time difference in their head. That makes a lot of difference when you're constantly flying from one location to the next and you're so jet-lagged you have no idea if you're coming or going. There are plenty of variations of these watches available for purchase. If you're curious, here are five of the best examples that money can buy.
5. Rolex Sky-Dweller Black 326934 ($24,795.00)
This is a stainless steel watch with a 42 mm case and an 18 karat gold fluted rotating bezel. The sapphire crystal is scratch resistant and is capable of keeping track of time in two different time zones. As far as the dial itself is concerned, it's black with chrome light technology. It's also capable of displaying both the day and the month. Like all Rolex watches, it has a second hand that sweeps. This particular watch has a stainless steel clam shell bracelet.
4. Rolex Sky-Dweller White 326933 ($20,495)
This watch is very much like the one that's listed above. As a matter of fact, the case is the same size and it also features an 18 karat gold fluted rotating bezel. The big difference is that the dial is white as opposed to being black. In addition, the stainless steel bracelet also has 18 karat gold in the center that runs the length of the bracelet. In addition, the watch also features automatic movement, a sweeping second hand and an ability to keep track of time in two time zones. Just like the watch listed in the above paragraph, it also keeps track of the date.
3. Rolex Sky-Dweller Blue Dial 326934 ($31,995)
This watch is genuinely something special, even by Rolex standards. It features a stainless steel case and clamshell clasp along with a brilliant blue dial. The fluted rotating bezel is made from 18 karat gold and the watch is capable of displaying the time in two time zones, along with both the month and the date. Despite the fact that it has the traditional sweeping second hand that Rolex is so famous for, it also has a special feature that allows you to make the second hand tick at the push of a button. It's designed that way so that you can keep precise time down to the second when you need to count something without missing a beat. In addition, it also has a stopwatch function. The watch features automatic movement and a 72-hour power reserve. For individuals who are interested, the watch can also take a fair amount of punishment and is water-resistant all the way down to a depth of 100 meters. That may not be a lot, but the watch company virtually guarantees that as long as you don't go beyond that depth, the watch is waterproof and cannot be damaged.
2. Rolex Sky-Dweller Rose Gold 326135 ($36,495)
This watch is definitely something special. You can tell that immediately at the first sight of it. It's one of those watches that stands out because of its sheer size as well as its color. As a result, it's something that can be easily spotted across the room. Better still, it doesn't take very long to recognize that it is a Rolex. This particular watch is made entirely out of 18 karat rose gold. With the exception of the strap, which is leather, that is the only material used on the watch. Of course, its sapphire crystal is scratch resistant and it has a fluted rotating bezel, like so many watches made by the company. As you might have come to expect by now from a company like Rolex, the watch is exceptionally well made. Both the hour and the minute hand are lit up so that you can easily see them at night. The watch also features 24-hour time on the inner ring while displaying 12-hour time on the outer ring. As is so frequently the case, the watch also displays the date.
1. Rolex Sky-Dweller 326939 ($54,995)
This particular watch is truly a masterpiece. It's one that even Rolex aficionados would be proud to call their own. Both the case and the bracelet are made from 18 karat white gold. An ivory dial and an 18 karat gold fluted rotating bezel finish off the look. This particular watch also has a feature that allows you to set it rapidly as well as keep track of seconds, despite the trademark Rolex sweeping second hand. If that's not enough to impress you, consider this fact. The watch comes with a 6-year warranty, serving as a testament to the quality with which it was manufactured. In addition to being made almost entirely of ivory and 18 karat white gold, the watch is also waterproof to a depth of 100 meters, or 330 feet. That's definitely enough to attract the attention of any watch lover or Rolex aficionado. In addition, it provides a timepiece that looks absolutely astonishing and functions just as well as it looks. It really is the total package, all rolled up in one. Despite the rather steep asking price, it's a one-of-a-kind watch that simply can't be imitated. As a result, it's one of the best Rolex Sky-Dweller watches that money can buy.
