Rolex gold is inextricably linked to the Sky-Dweller. Whether 18 kt yellow, white or Everose gold, all Rolex golds are entirely created and cast in the brand’s own foundry. Composed of 750 ‰ pure gold and blends of silver, copper or palladium, these precious alloys are distinguished by their remarkable radiance and resistance.
The qualities of Oystersteel exclusive to Rolex also benefit the Sky-Dweller in the white Rolesor and yellow Rolesor versions. A real brand signature since the early 1930s, Rolesor is a combination of metals – gold and steel – which come together in a pas de deux where sophistication meets strength.
The Sky-Dweller gives free rein to individual expression, offering a choice of different dial colours. Bright black, bright blue or intense white, champagne-colour, chocolate or slate, it is also available in mint green and blue-green shades.
This variety of colours is combined with precious materials and different bracelets to create harmonious versions of the model.
All manufactured internally, the dials bear chief responsibility for the identity and legibility of Rolex watches. The art of dial making pairs traditional manual expertise with state-of-the-art technologies.
With lacquering, it is possible to obtain a wide range of opaque colours. Electroplating produces metallic tints with a multitude of possible shades. And PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) techniques permit dials to be coated with an infinitesimally thin layer of metals or oxides.
