Thanks so much for posting!

Sky Dweller is... weird.

Don't kill me.... but actually I like the Daytona with rainbow jewels around the bezel, just for fun! Ellen totally needs to get one for Portia.

Thanks for the update.
I'd have to agree with Speed on the SkyDweller, looks
like an overly complicated variation of the DateJust II.
Maybe it will grow on me ... ...

rolex already has 2 lines with GMT - so nothing exciting about this at all -

chrono with date and/or gmt would be news

I love the Sky-Dweller, but only in RG. Other than that nothing really excites me. The Sub ND is a nice addition, but predictable

What's with the rainbow Daytona!? Ugh. Design team at Rolex seems to be hitting the crack pipe.

I love the complications on the Sky-Dweller. Looking at the functions of the watch it is what many talked about prior to the launch. I'm not a big fan of the packaging. Out of the tree models the RG looks the best to me.

SubC ND looks very nice too, but I assume it will come with appropriate hike in the price tag from 6300 to 7x00 - let's hope it will stay under 7500.

But what I love the most is the new DJII steel - nice and elegant watch. I may stop by my AD today to put myself on wait list. I assume that it will be shorter list than for the SubC ND ;-).

And I'm so glad I god some sleep unlike some of you. By the way stay up for the Apple announcement that is later today. I'm sure if you are disappointed with Rolex maybe Apple has something for you.

I think the SkyDweller fits a certain use case better than existing models. The International traveler who wants the look of a DayDate but needs to track timezones and always know the correct date will love this watch.

nice work, anders.

the DJII smooth bezel & silver sunray dial is quite nice.

re: sky-dweller, this is what i said in the other thread:

it looks like a DJII with some bells and whistles (nice bells and whistles, mind you)....with the DJII overtones, i just don't get why they named it "sky-dweller". it does not look like a "sports watch".

i don't mind the lower-number cut-offs, but, what i DO mind is the cyclops intruding on the ring. VERY BAD.

anyway, nice to see something different, but, it's not something i'm lusting after.

My thoughts:

1. The Sky Dweller looks FANTASTIC in YG, I just hope it's available YG Champagne Romans, but the arabic is OK. I think the 24 hour displace is absolutely superflous and completely unnecessary, borderline useless. This could have been used for a simultaneous display of a second time zone. For a Sky-Dweller model, I expected AT LEAST to see 2 time zones at once. The setting of the time zone sounds interesting. I LOVE the month display on the dial and think the calendar date display is awesome.

2. Sub ND-C - expected.

3. YM with a blue dial - BEAUTIFUL.

4. Daytona - not my cup of tea.

5. DJII Smooth - Also not the choice I would make.

6. Lady's DateJust - Very lovely.

7. DDII New Dials and Bezels - Very glad I didn't wait until these were released to get The King!
