One of the youngest Rolex lines is the Sky-Dweller, which debuted in 2012. It’s also the most complicated watch in the modern Rolex catalog, providing an annual calendar and a clever way to set it using the Ring Command bezel. You can read about it here.

The new Rolex Sky-Dweller 2024 editions are no different in functionality, but they come with the Jubilee bracelets in precious metal. Rolex precious metal, that is, like Everose gold, but also 18K yellow gold. And boy, does it look good!

Caliber 9002

Nothing new under the hood

Rolex introduced an update to the Sky-Dweller movement last year, going from caliber 9001 to caliber 9002. The 9002 is equipped with the Chronergy escapement and provides a power reserve of 72 hours with an average accuracy of ±2 seconds per day.

Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller

The annual calendar complication ensures you don’t have to worry about correcting the date on the first of the month (in the case of 30-day months). Only on March 1st will you have to correct the date manually since only perpetual calendars calculate the number of days in February correctly.

The most comfortable Rolex bracelet?

Rolex already had the Jubilee bracelet for the Sky-Dweller, but it was only for the models in steel (with a fluted bezel in 18K white gold). The Jubilee is perhaps the brand’s most comfortable bracelet, and Rolex decided it was time to bring it in yellow gold and rose gold — excuse me, Everose gold. This is Rolex’s patented alloy for rose gold, ensuring a longer-lasting rose hue. Regular rose gold often goes a bit yellow after some time (and wear). Rolex has used its in-house foundry to produce this patented 18K rose gold alloy since 2005.

Ceramic inserts

The Rolex Jubilee bracelet on the Sky-Dweller has a folding Oysterclasp and is equipped with the Easylink comfort system. This way, the wearer can adjust it an extra 5mm without using any tools (or toothpicks). Inside the Rolex Jubilee bracelet are ceramic inserts, making it even more flexible than it already was. It also ensures that the bracelet lasts longer without stretching.

Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 336935

The Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 336935, the 18K Everose gold version, has a beautiful slate dial and a retail price of CHF 49,700 / €54,000. Other dial configurations are also possible, like intense white, blue-green, and chocolate.

Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 336938

The Rolex Sky-Dweller ref. 336938, the 18K yellow gold version, comes with an intense white dial and has a retail price of CHF 47,000 / €51,000. This model also is available with a black or champagne dial.

From what we can tell, along with the 42mm diameter, the 50.5mm length, 14mm thickness, and 21mm lug spacing remain the same.

Impressions of the gold Sky-Dweller on a Jubilee bracelet

There’s something about wearing a gold Rolex. It’s often regarded as a statement watch, which can be positively or negatively explained. I think there’s nothing negative about wearing a gold watch or a gold Rolex watch, but it’s not for everyone. The Jubilee bracelet looks extremely nice in gold, whether it be 18K yellow gold or Everose gold. I slightly prefer the yellow gold edition, though, and I think it looks amazing with the white dial.
