Rolex has created a new movement masterpiece – its first completely new movement in 25 years.

The Sky Dweller, and as the name implies, it is a watch for the traveler with a second time zone feature and annual calendar. The big news is that the watch is set not only with the crown but also by rotating the bezel. The 24-hour second time zone is a rotating disc just below the dial. It also boasts an annual calendar with the months displayed next to the corresponding numeral on the dial. And all done in the classic Rolex Oyster look.
