Baselworld 2012: Rolex impresses with innovative technology and luxurious glamour
The technically most proficient highlight is the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller − an annual calendar with two time zones both displayed at the same time, powered by a new movement developed in-house, the automatic calibre 9001.
Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller incorporates 14 patents, including 5 new ones: all of the displays can be adjusted via the crown. This is all possible thanks to the so-called Ring Command: the date, local or reference time can be adjusted depending on whether the bezel is rotated one, two or three positions.
While the Sky-Dweller represents technical expertise and inventiveness, the new Oyster Perpetual Datejust incorporates the joys of design and glamour: the pink gold dial attracts the attention with white diamonds and contrasting black lacquer, surrounded by a bezel which is set with 60 baguette-cut diamonds and 120 brillant-cut diamonds on the edge.
