Rolex Sky Dweller: A World Traveler’s Best Companion

Among the collections of Rolex, the Sky Dweller houses one of the brand’s most complicated in-house calibre movements. The Rolex Calibre 9001 was launched with the Rolex Sky Dweller collection in 2012, and it features a self-winding movement and 72-hour power reserve. The Calibre 9001 combines functionality and design with its innovative mechanism, which enables the smooth movement of the watch. 

The Calibre 9001 makes it possible for the watch to rotate the Ring Command bezel to access the function settings of the watch. The rotatable bezel and the winding crown help the wearer adjust the reference and local time and the month and date, which makes the Rolex Sky Dweller watch useful for global travellers. 

Moreover, the Sky Dweller’s annual calendar, named Saros, can differentiate between a 30- and 31-day month, and is connected with the local time of the watch. Meanwhile, the reference time is at the off-centre disc of the watch. The date changes automatically depending on the local timezone of the user. 

With these unique features in the Rolex watch Sky Dweller collection, it remains to be one of their most sophisticated and complex watches ever made.

How much is a Rolex Sky Dweller watch?

With the Rolex Sky Dweller price list provided, we can see that despite the features of the watches such as self-winding mechanism, annual calendar, and water resistance, the prices are actually almost identical. However, the prices vary depending on the material used for the casing, bracelet/strap, and dial. 

Most of the designs in the collection are combinations of stainless steel and gold in white, pink, and yellow variations. These combined or two-toned watches that Rolex calls the “Rolesor” are generally more affordable than their solid gold watches. For instance, the Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326934, which has a stainless steel and white gold feature with a bright black dial, is one of their least expensive watches in the collection. Since it is entirely made from stainless steel, you can purchase it for around $19,000 USD to $23,000 USD, depending on its mint or pre-owned condition. 

The solid gold watches, on the other hand, can be more than two times the price of Rolesor watches. The Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326935, for instance, is entirely made of Everose gold from the case to the bracelet material. This Rolex Sky Dweller rose gold watch retails for about $50,000 USD. Similarly, the yellow-gold Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326938 is another eye-catching solid gold watch that retails for about $45,000 USD to $55,000 USD. 

However, there are also affordable alternatives to the solid gold watches. Instead of the Rolex Sky Dweller stainless steel or gold bracelet design, you can choose a leather strap. They have a leather strap option for this yellow-gold watch (Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326238), and Everose/pink gold watch (Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326235). Both watches sell for about $50,000 USD. With these Rolex Sky Dweller price comparisons, we get the general difference between the old and new models in the collection.

For instance, the most popular in the collection is the Rolex Sky Dweller Ref. 326934 with the bright blue dial in stainless steel and white gold which retails for around $20,000 to $30,000 USD.
