This year, I was happy to see a stainless steel Rolex Sky-Dweller Replica during our appointment at BaselWorld. Introduced in 2012 already, but always in precious metals. Today’s steel Rolex Sea-Dweller Watch is partly precious metal, as the fluted bezel is made of white gold. Let’s have a look.
Fake Rolex Sky-Dweller Reference 326934
Although some say the new 43mm fake rolex sea-dweller with red writing is the big news from Rolex this year, I think it was actually their Sky-Dweller in stainless steel that impressed me. A steel Rolex Sky-Dweller watch, with a 42mm case and a wonderful complication: the annual calendar. You will only need to correct the date on March 1st, and all other months are good to go. A clever mechanism (using the bezel), will allow you to easily set the local time, reference time and the date (and month).
As you can see on the image above, the hour markers are also the month indicator of the watch. So on the Steel Rolex Sky-Dweller above, it is August (month 8). You can rotate the bezel to set the watch. The bezel can be set in 3 positions. Position 3 (turning it counter clock wise as far as possible), will set the reference time. Position II, which is around 9:30, is used to set the local time. Position I (10.30) of the bezel is used to set the date. In each of these positions you will also have to unscrew and operate the crown, of course.
For the Sky-Dweller, Rolex uses their Caliber 9001 Movement. It has all the typical Rolex innovations, like the Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers. But you can also say that it is one of the few fake rolex movements with complications (if you don’t count the date function as a complication). Besides the chronograph movements for the Daytona and Yacht-Master II, the annual calendar is quite something. It also is able to display an extra time zone (using the off-centre 24-hour disc).
