I have introduced the new replica Submariner 41 and the new Oyster Perpetual 41 mm and 36 mm replica watches the other day. Adding to the excitement, Rolex is also announcing a collection of new Sky-Dweller watches in both 18k yellow gold and Everose gold on the Oysteflex bracelet. To put it simply, this new watch is the same Sky-Dweller that we all know, just with a new strap. Now, a “strap change” might not seem like the most thrilling thing in the world, but these new knock off Rolex Sky-Dweller watches look very cool.
The novelty for the 2020 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller new watches is the incorporation of an Oysterflex bracelet. And it’s the first time in this collection to include the brand’s high-performance elastomer bracelet. We all know which was previously only introduced on Rolex sport knock off watches, such as the Yacht-Master in 2015. Prior, Rolex Sky-Dweller watches have only been available on leather straps or metal bracelets. The new Oysterflex strap phases out previous Sky-Dwellers available on a leather strap. The Rolex Daytona watch was released on the Oysterflex back in 2017, and just like this new Sky-Dweller watch, only in precious metals.
Although it is made from elastomer, the Rolex Oysterflex bracelet cannot be written off as a normal black rubber strap. The Oysterflex bracelet is made up of flexible metal blades in titanium and nickel. Then the metal blades is over-moulded with high-performance black elastomer. This insteresting combination ensures the resilience of a metal bracelet with the flexibility and comfort of a rubber strap. In addition, the “flaps” on the back that hug the wrist is also a great design. The Oysteflex bracelet has a folding Oysterclasp in precious metals（same material as the case）and features Rolex’s proprietary Glidelock extension system with six notches of 2.5mm allowing the length of the bracelet to be adjusted up to 15mm without any tools.
Apart from the strap upgrade, the new and old knock off Rolex Sky-Dweller watches will be very familiar, as they are totally identical. But we must admit that the bracelets do have a huge impact on the visual look of the Sky-Dweller watches and how they look. The using of Oysterflex is a huge change and definitely a big refreshment to the Sky-Dweller family.
Another upgrade of replica Rolex Sky-Dweller watches is the “choco” dial, which is introduced on the rose gold Sky-Dweller. A similar “chocolate” dial was first seen introduced in 2019. But now, Rolex continued on the theme for this year by adding a chocolate dial for the rose gold Sky-Dweller too.
The 42mm Rolex Sky-Dweller case frames a bright black, sunray-finish dial with hands and hour markers in yellow or rose gold. The hands and hour markers are coated or filled with the Chromalight luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow in the night. The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire and is fitted with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock, the purpose is to improve the readability of the date.
No Other Changes
Unlike the new 2020 Submariner watches, the size of the new Sky-Dweller watches has not been increased and nothing has changed regarding the case or dial.
The knock off Rolex Sky-Dweller 326238 in yellow gold with a black dial, Ref. 326235 in Everose gold with a brown dial or white dial. And all-new Rolex Sky-Dweller watches have the same 42mm case. But the new Sky-Dweller watches drips with casual flamboyance. Their dynamic precious metals and Oysterflex combination pairing beautifully with a sunray-finished glossy dial.
Developed and manufactured by Rolex, the self-winding NO.9001 movement is one of the most complex movements of the brand. This complex movement integrates a dual time complication with an annual calendar. Beating at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), it offers a power reserve of approximately 72 hours and guarantees chronometric precision in the order of −2/+2 seconds per day. And this COSC-certified movement is more than twice that required of an official chronometer. It engages the dual-time and annual calendar features with the case, but intuitive ease-of-use. This is reflected in the so-called Ring Command bezel. The rotatable grooved bezel frames the dial, and the Ring Command system allows users to adjust the date, local time or reference time by simply turning the bezel forward or backward.
As previously said, there are no Sky-Dweller watches with leather straps available anymore. But the cases of the new knock off Rolex Sky-Dweller watches do feature similar lug hoods to those recently retired watches, to give the Oysterflex a more integrated appearance with the case of the watch.
