The versatility of some people can never be forgotten. It has never been an easy journey for the famous ones as well. Having struggled through a bizarre and bumpy road, Johnny Depp proved to be one of the most adventurous actors of his generation. Such personalities always inspire us to do what we want to do. Like this famous personality, Rolex has always been known for its versatile range of collection. Rolex timepieces signify popularity and prestige. The Rolex Sky-Dweller is one of a kind. It is especially designed for those who love to travel the world. Rolex unveiled its new Oyster Perpetual Sky Dweller in March 2012. Sky- Dweller is one of the most talked about watches, with a totally new caliber, 9001.
Being equipped with two time zones, this timepiece displays the local time via centre hands and the reference time via a rotating disc, which is visible on the dial. The time can be easily read at a glance and gives the Sky- Dweller an artistic identity. Inspired by the Saros phenomena, the annual calendar requires adjustment only once a year in March. The Greek word Saros refers to the 18-year cycle that can be used to predict the occurrence of an eclipse. For this Saros phenomenon, two gear ratios and four gear wheels are added to the Rolex date calendar.
Sky -Dweller has an unrestricted setting, which can be easily done by using both the bezel and the crown. To select the function to be set, the Ring Command Bezel has to be turned to any one of the three directions. By using the Crown, you adjust the function, going either forward or backward. Having a bi-directional winding like all the Rolex calibers, Sky Dweller has a stop seconds function and a power reserve of 72 hours. The movement of the timepiece is not only equipped with 380 components but also protected by seven patents.
The 42mm Oyster case in white gold adds a touch of perfection to the timepiece, which suits the personality of our American superstar, Johnny Depp, who is an actor, a film producer and also a musician.
