No statement watch will receive more attention in 2012 than this entry from Rolex.
The Sky-Dweller combines the ever popular second time zone complication with the increasingly available annual calendar. Although not the first in the world, it is certainly the first that will be widely available. A single crown that works in sync with a bezel function selector handles all adjustments to local time (central hands), reference time (24-hour ring), date (under the usual Cyclops lens) and month (discreetly shown via apertures behind the roman numerals). This ingenious system and the admittedly unusual dial design will make or break this watch for Rolex .
