Wrist Watch Wednesday: Rolex Sky-Dweller

Standard

Welcome to the last Wrist Watch Wednesday of February. Todays watch to make the list is one that ties into my last blog “What is a Grail Watch?” because this one is indeed my end all Grail watch. It is the Rolex Sky-Dweller. If money were no option and that I could go out today and purchase anything I wanted I would be driving to the Rolex AD right now. I know its not the most popular watch by far and definitely not the most popular Rolex in their line up. The Sky-Dweller even gets a wrap for bring too over the top and gaudy due it its larger case size and being only available in gold varieties. All that aside I will introduce you to my grail watch!

So if money was zero problem and I could drop $38,000 on a watch with no worries. I still would choose the Rolex Sky-Dweller. The only change that I would like to see Rolex make to the Sky-Dweller would be to upgrade the clasp lock to that of the new Submariner and we have a perfect watch in my opinion.
