Baselworld 2012 back in March marked the announcement of the Rolex Sky-Dweller — a significant entry to the venerable stable of Rolex timepieces. The announcement was significant indeed, as entirely new Rolex models are few and far between. However, specific details of the watch were scant at best, until now. It’s now understood that in addition to the Sky Dweller‘s intuitive dual-time display, the all-new caliber 9001 automatic movement is controlled via the watch’s bezel-operated control ring. This “Ring Command” system enables the wearer to set the date, local time and reference time displayed on the watch — all by rotating the fluted bezel. It’s no surprise that this caliber 9001 movement is Rolex’s most complex to date, as the movement alone contains seven different patents. The Sky-Dweller isn’t expected to hit authorized Rolex dealers until sometime this winter, so you’ll still have a bit of time to scrounge together the 44,000 CHF (approximately $46,000 USD) it’ll take to get the 18K yellow gold Dweller on your wrist. You can find more information, and stay abreast of any updates at the Rolex Sky-Dweller page here.
