Rolex released a series of new models last year, including the Rolex Sky-Dweller Oysterflex Bracelet Yellow Gold Black Dial watch replica ref. 326238, also known as the Sky-Dweller, for which Rolex is equipped with the Oysterflex rubber strap for the first time. This rubber strap is paired with the Rolex most complicated model in the series, which is a new choice for watch lovers who like this series. Let’s take a look at it below.
Case & Dial
This yellow gold and black dial Rolex Sky-Dweller replica is also the main model of the new collection of rubber bands, Rolex uses 18CT yellow gold for the Oyster case, which measures 42 mm. The Oyster case is also an example of robustness and elegance, a unique middle case cast in solid 18ct gold, which is extremely difficult to corrode. 18ct metal is cast in a high-quality gold alloy by Rolex’s own exclusive foundry, where different types of 18ct gold are refined by mixing different amounts of silver, copper, platinum or palladium in order to achieve the tone and quality required by Rolex.
The black dial is treated with a sunburst effect, which gives the watch a different visual appearance when illuminated by different angles of light. A red inverted triangle is fixed on the dial to indicate the 24-hour second time zone on the inner dial, which can be read with just a glance. The rectangular indexes and hands are coated with a luminescent material that emits a lasting blue light in the dark.
Complexity Made Simple
The new Rolex Sky-Dweller 42 mm watch replica, one of the most complicated models developed by Rolex, was presented at Baselworld 2012. A watch designed for globetrotters, the Sky-Dweller replica is a functional travel companion with a second time zone and annual calendar, and a unique “Ring Command” bezel to set the functions. What sets the Sky-Dweller apart from so many GMT watches is its deceptively simple display made possible by an extremely complex movement protected by no less than 11 patents. Unlike the GMT-Master originally designed for Pan Am pilots, the Sky-Dweller replica is dressier and targeted to high-flying travellers.
The display of the Rolex Sky-Dweller replica is highly intuitive: local time is displayed with the 3 central hands; the second time zone or reference time is displayed on a rotating 24-hour disc in the centre of the dial and indicated by an inverted red triangle; the date is displayed at 3 o’clock under a classic Cyclops lens; the month is arranged in 12 small apertures on the periphery of the dial at the tip of the indices which change from to white to red accordingly. The annual calendar automatically differentiates between 30 and 31-day months, meaning that only one adjustment is required a year, on 1 March.
Not only is it one of the easiest-to-consult GMT and calendar displays, but it is also one of the easiest-to-adjust thanks to the unique rotating Ring Command bezel. Instead of incorporating a crown with multiple positions to set the different functions, or relying on pushers tucked into the caseband, Rolex developed a unique system of adjustment via the bezel. The Ring Command bezel can be rotated to select the date, the local time and the reference time, which can then be adjusted in either direction using the winding crown.
Although it is made from elastomer, the Oysterflex bracelet cannot be written off as a conventional black rubber strap. A hybrid between a metal bracelet and a rubber strap, the Oysterflex is made up of flexible metal blades in titanium and nickel which are over-moulded with high-performance black elastomer. This combination ensures the resilience of a metal bracelet with the flexibility and comfort of a rubber strap, especially thanks to the “flaps” on the back that hug the wrist. The Oysteflex bracelet has a folding Oysterclasp in yellow or rose gold and features Rolex’s proprietary Glidelock extension system with six notches of 2.5mm allowing the length of the bracelet to be adjusted up to 15mm without tools.
Developed and manufactured by Rolex, automatic calibre 9001 is regarded as one of the most complex movements created by the brand. Fitted with Paraflex shock absorbers, a large variable inertia balance wheel and the anti-magnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, the movement is shock-resistant and designed to weather everyday wear and tear. The Sky-Dweller replica has also earned COSC chronometer certification and Rolex’s own Superlative Chronometer certification and comes with an international five-year guarantee. The movement beats at 4Hz and provides up to 72 hours of power reserve.
Although the 18k yellow gold/black dial model replica on the Oysterflex bracelet is the showcase piece today, there are currently six possible configurations of the 2020 Sky-Dweller replica:
326238 replica – Yellow gold with black, champagne or white dial and black Oysterflex bracelet
326235 replica – Everose gold with chocolate, white or dark rhodium dial and black Oysterflex bracelet
The 18k yellow gold Sky-Dweller models retail for EUR 37,700, the Everose Sky-Dweller models for EUR 39,000. To get an accurate price in your region, please consult the official Rolex webpage.
In general, the Rolex SKY-DWELLER watch replica with rubber strap is very good, the rubber strap is different from the pure business style of the SKY-DWELLER metal chain models and belt models, adding a sporty texture to the SKY-DWELLER.
