Rolex lovers rejoice! Eleven James is delighted to announce the newest addition to our Virtuoso Collection, the spectacular Sky-Dweller in Everose gold. From our friends at Hodinkee:
The most hotly anticipated watch of Basel World 2012 was to be the new sport watch from Rolex. You see, the internets were abuzz with the fact that Rolex had registered the name “Sky-Dweller” weeks before its unveiling, and countless so-called “experts” chimed in with their prediction of what it would look like, and what it would be.
The general consensus was that it would be a brand new sport watch, kind of a super pilot’s watch to the GMT-Master’s “every day” pilot’s watch, just as the Sea-Dweller is the beefier version of the Submariner. They were wrong. On the very first day of Basel World, after the silk caps were removed, the world was shown the first new Rolex model in quite some time, and definitely the most complicated Rolex in a generation.
