If you have been following us for more than about five minutes you would know about my deep love for the Rolex Sky-dweller in Everose Gold with the brown dial (pictured below on my wrist) so we were extremely excited by Rolex’s new releases at Baselworld 2014 in Basel, Switzerland last week. For those of you who don’t know the magic of Baselworld it is a trade show of the international watch and jewellery industry, organized each spring in the city of Basel, Switzerland. It comprises of around 2,100 exhibitors from over 45 countries, including the leading watch and jewelry brands, as well as companies specializing in precious gems.
There were many new and exciting releases from Rolex at this years Baselworld, from the new GMT Master II with the red and blue ‘Pepsi’ bezel in white gold to the new Celina Collection but the one we were most excited about were the new Sky-dweller models that were added to the collection. Could one of these knock off the Everose Sky-dweller to become my new favourite?
Rolex has added three different models to the already existing collection of the Oyster Perpetual Sky-dweller. This includes a 18c Yellow Gold (Ref. 326138) with a silver sunray finish dial and a brown alligator Mississippiensis leather bracelet, a 18c White Gold (Ref. 326138) with a black satin finish dial and a black alligator Mississippiensis leather bracelet and finally the 18c Everose Gold (Ref. 326935) with a Sundust sunray finish dial and an oyster three piece solid link bracelet.
Which is the Watch This Space favourite out of this new lot you ask??
Our favourite out of this new lot of Oyster Perpetual Rolex Sky-Dwellers is the 18c Yellow Gold. The reason I was put off from the original Yellow Gold Oyster Perpetual Sky-dweller was because it also has a yellow gold bracelet which in my opinion makes it look a bit over the top but with this brown leather band and silver dial it all comes together quite nicely. It still doesn’t knock the original Everose Gold with the brown dial off of the top of the podium but it is still an amazing timepiece!
