When Swiss made fake Rolex launched the Sky-Dweller at Baselworld a decade ago this year, it was its first completely new model since the release of the Yacht-Master in 1992. Any new Rolex replica for sale UK, whether an upgraded stalwart of the collection or a completely brand-new addition, comes with lofty expectations. But after twenty years of tinkering with its existing models—a new movement here, a relaunched Milgauss there—it was time to bring something new to the table.
What best 1:1 replica Rolex needed was a show-stopper, something that was both quintessentially Rolex and aesthetically fresh.
An expectant industry demanded it.
Thankfully, despite some initial apprehension, the luxury fake Rolex Sky-Dweller delivered, not only giving us an uncharacteristically complex watch—for Rolex, at least—but displaying a touch of genius in the way it used its bezel to control the functions.
As secretive as AAA super clone Rolex is, word still leaked out before the official 2012 release of the watch that the brand had registered the name ‘Sky-Dweller’. Understandably, rumour and speculation were rife. With a name like that, it had to be some sort of pilot’s watch. But what kind? A time-only ‘flieger’? Another chronograph to partner the popular Rolex Daytona copy online?
With its GMT watches—originally made for Pan AM pilots in the 1950s—Swiss movement replica Rolex already had some aviation pedigree of sorts. Would this mysterious Sky-Dweller amount to a variation on the GMT II collection?
As it turned out, the top Swiss fake Rolex Sky-Dweller did indeed feature a GMT function, but instead of a 24-hour scale on the bezel, it had a revolving display on a disc positioned off-centre in the lower half of the dial, with a small inverted triangle beneath 12 o’clock pointing to the second—or home—time zone.
Setting it was done by the bezel and the crown, more of which below.
An Annual Calendar, Too!
The Rolex Sky-Dweller replica Paypal is also the first Rolex with an annual calendar. Previously it has made triple calendars—displaying the day, date and month—but these are relatively easy to produce and involve manually correcting the date for the four months with 30 days.
An annual calendar means you only need to manually wind the date forward at the end of February. The four months with thirty days are all pre-programmed into the movement.
What was especially clever, however, is how the high quality fake Rolex Sky Dweller displayed the month.
Command And Control
So, two impressive and highly technical complications, yet a case that features just a regular crown with no pushers or additional buttons. How does the wholesale fake Rolex Sky-Dweller do it?
This is where the Sky-Dweller really impresses and justifies its fat price tag, with gold versions on a bracelet at the very top-end of the Swiss movement replica Rolex price league table.
The so-called ‘Ring Command Bezel’—something we’ve seen used to similar effect on the Yacht-Master II—has three positions (or four if you include ‘neutral’) which can be set by turning it either clock-wise or anti-clockwise. Once in place, these enable the wearer, using the crown, to set one of three different functions: the date, local time, or reference time.
This deceptively simple movement, Caliber 9001, was created solely for this watch and resulted in super clone Rolex registering no less than eleven patents.
Its simplicity also helped the Rolex Sky-Dweller replica for men achieve a look that lies somewhere between utilitarian and an every-day dress watch, combining the iconic fluted bezel and precious metals of the Day-Date with a contemporary looking dial. The more elegant versions come with roman numerals, but there are also Arabic numerals and baton indices.
Introduced first in precious metals, the cheap copy Rolex Sky Dweller later came in steel with a gold bezel and two-tone.
