Top Athletes Opt for the Rolex Sky-Dweller 

The Sky-Dweller is one of Rolex’s larger and more expensive models since it is positioned as the globetrotter’s watch. As a matter of fact, up until very recently, this special Rolex was exclusively in 18k gold. Perhaps it is because of its larger size and hefty price tag that the Sky-Dweller is a favorite among the world’s top athletes. From football to soccer to UFC to basketball, there are some sportsmen that have a Sky-Dweller in his collection.
The replica Rolex Sky-Dweller collection made its debut in 2012 and its releasing was a surprise to many. Not only did it look rather different to already established Rolex models, it also featured functions that were new to modern replica Rolex watches. Size wise, the Sky-Dweller is 42mm. This is notably larger than dress watches like the 36mm Datejust or sports watches like the 40mm Submariner.

Since the Sky-Dweller is touted as the ultimate traveler’s luxury watch, its functions are practical for those who regularly find themselves in different time zones. For example, the Sky-Dweller has an annual calendar. Therefore, the dial displays the time, date, and month of the year. Plus, as long as the watch keeps running, the only time the watch needs adjusting is on March 1st. In addition to the annual calendar, there’s also two time zone indicators.
The Sky-Dweller was only available in gold Until Baselworld 2017. Three shades to be precise: yellow, white, or Everose gold. Its previous metal of choice made the Sky-Dweller one pricey Rolex to own. But now, to the delight of many, there are two Rolesor versions.
Whether it’s because of the Sky-Dweller’s edgier design, its ability to track different time zones, its larger size, or its eye-popping price tag, some of the best athletes in sports today gravitate towards this particular replica Rolex. For example, NBA superstar LeBron James has been spotted wearing a Sky-Dweller. In case you haven’t heard, the replica Rolex produces their own patented pink gold alloy—dubbed Everose—at their in-house foundries.
Along with top basketball players, leading football players are also fans of the Rolex Sky-Dweller. Take Julio Jones, the wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, for example. He has several Rolex watches to his name including a full 18k yellow gold Sky-Dweller. Retired NFL player, Demarcus Ware of Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos fame, often wears his Everose gold Sky-Dweller with the chocolate dial. Although the Sky-Dweller is not a Rolex sports watch, but rather a sporty luxury dress watch, it’s certainly favored by top sports pros.
