Although on the larger side it fits comfortably and adjusts easily on the black alligator strap. Also the size is necessary for ease of reading on the single glance dial.

Simple and clear from a single look at your watch the Skydweller dial tells you a lot. First as all watches you can get the local time. Also the reference time on the second time zone disc.

A masterpiece made specifically for world travellers this is a unique Rolex watch for men. Let us take a deeper look at the incredible features packed into this iconic time piece.
The two disc dual time zone and date feature
For the impeccable display of this luxury watch to function you need some incredible craftsmanship. That includes not only in the forging of the watch and its fine pieces within. It also encompasses the features that make this Rolex one of the most complicated of all. Within the Skydweller Rolex case we find cutting edge engineering and watch making. The mechanism that allows for both time zones moves the hour hand independently in one hour increments. This can be done both forwards and backwards. So no matter what direction you cross time zones in you can easily and seamlessly adjust your Rolex 326139. It is based on a complex module that has no fewer than 60 components. These are state of the art watch making and advanced micro mechanics. But more on this calibre 9001 movement below. A distinctive technological masterpiece how the Rolex Skydweller works is simple complexity.
The date change on this watch is also linked to the local time (not the time on the second time zone disc). The change of dates occurs within only a few milliseconds at midnight each day. The date that shows on the date window at 3 o’clock beneath the cyclops augmentation glass is always the current date in your local time zone. This is the Skydweller’s Saros annual calendar. It is a high efficiency mechanism of groundbreaking simplicity. To display the correct date of the year throughout the year it uses an ingenious system that Rolex has patented. It is the Saros replication of the irregular occurrence of 30 and 31 day months. In fact this incredible yet simple feature uses only four additional gear wheels.
The Calibre 9001 MOVEMENT
A truly unique movement the Skydweller has a self winding mechanism. Rolex developed and crafted this calibre 9001 movement entirely in house. With all of 7 patents protecting this unique time keeping tool it is one of the most complex movements ever. The Rolex craftsmen managed to pack some of their most complex movements and put them all together into this one. It is a seriously unique movement that is precise and reliable. It was originally introduced in 2012. Engineered for absolute simplicity of use there is a selector wheel on the outer edge of the calibre that ensures the movement and the bezel to set the functions operate perfectly. Like all of Rolex’s perpetual movements it is a certified Swiss Chronometer. A high precision device it is extremely reliable. The architecture of this movement is standard for most of the Rolex Oyster watch movements as well.
White Rolesor Skydweller Case
The Skydweller model has a 42 millimeter Oyster case. It is a white Rolesor combination of the finest 18 carat white gold and Oyster steel from Rolex’s very own foundry. The architecture of the watch within is a monobloc middle case. It has a screw down case with a winding crown that is used to set the dual time zones as discussed above. Further the bezel is a Rolex signature look. A fluted bezel that we will go into more detail below. The winding crown is a screw down twin lock double water proof system. So that you do not have to worry whether you are jet setting of diving down deep.
What is the Rolex Skydweller’s water resistance? An incredible water proof depth of up to 100 meters or 330 feet. As with a majority of the Rolex watches it has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. As well as the Rolex classic cyclops lens over the date window.
18 carat White Gold fluted bezel and black alligator leather strap with 18 carat White Gold buckle
The bezel on this incredible Skydweller is an 18 carat white gold fluted bezel. It is bi directional with rotatable Rolex Ring Command. The rotatable ring command interacts with the 9001 calibre movement so the settings can be adjusted easily. After unscrewing the crown and putting it into setting position you then turn the bezel all the way to the left. As far as it will go which is about the 8:30 position. You can then set the time while the second time zone disc and hour hand are synchronized. Then once the time is set you can change the local time by unscrewing the crown of the Skydweller and turning the dial in its other direction. More or less to the 9:30 position. Now the hour hand alone is moved. It can be set forwards and backwards in one hour increments.
This also sets the date window to the appropriate direction as needed. Setting the month and date is also done with the bezel. First you turn the bezel to the first position. Then you turn the crown until the red indicator for the month is at the correct window. Certainly a complex yet easy to use watch it has everything that you could want from a sleek and clean design. There are no pushers or other tools for setting and moving the time. Rather the iconic fluted bezel first seen on the Rolex Date Just is all that you need.
Additionally the strap is incredible. A black alligator leather strap it has a matching 18 carat white gold buckle. A true classic and beautiful hand stitched bracelet it is perfect for long wear particularly during flights.
