And if you'd like to know the price, simply click on the links in the description below. We greatly appreciate if you'd purchase your next watch from us at Jaztime.com. Today, we'll be taking a look at this Rolex Sky-Dweller 40 millimeters as always, reference number 326235 on this one, because not only does it have the chocolate dial, the Everose gold case, but also the Oysterflex strap. We'll be going over all of those features, including the Command bezel and the crown features, as well as the movement. I'll be giving my thoughts on those throughout this video. So, starting off with this case. I'm sorry, I spoke a little bit earlier, 42 millimeters actually from finger to thumb, not 40 millimeters. From the 2 o'clock to 8 o'clock position, or the 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock position, same diameter, same 42 millimeters. It has the Monobloc middle case with the screw-down case back and the winding crown as always to give you the water resistance down to a hundred meters or 330 feet below sea level. The two little dots underneath this Rolex crown logo on the crown itself signify the Twinlock waterproofness system so you can be sure that it will be keeping that water tightness and the water resistance down to that depth should you so desire. So, taking a look again at this full construction here, we have what they call Everose gold construction of this case. That means it is a blend of Oystersteel and their own version of rose gold or red gold, whichever, a very, very warm type of gold. That means it has that very high polish and the high durability that you can come to expect from Rolex. And it also has a longer life in its overall color because most other rose gold colors tend to lose their redness over time. Rolex both said it lasts the longest out of all rose gold colorations. So, keep that in mind when you're shopping around. This one's very, very good in that regard. So, on the very front of this case, again, you have the Command bezel here, this one a fluted vessel, very distinct, and obviously a Rolex. Because when Rolex created the fluted bezel, they made it with the intent of screwing directly onto the front of the case to ensure the waterproofness of the system. But that's been, well, not all that necessary anymore, thanks to modern advancements. But here, this bezel does actually rotate and not for the waterproofness reasons, I'll show you in just a second how it all works. Again, all rose gold in its construction, Everose gold that is. And with a seemingly matching dial, obviously, if we look a little bit closer, we have the chocolate colored dial sunray patterning, that sunburst effect that you can see radiating from the center and going outwards as I move it through this light box. It has a very matching overall coloration, not the exact, but matching enough to fit in with the overall coloration of the Everose gold. Very elegant in its overall appearance. You have the index hour marks, which give you the extra Chromalite luminescence. I'll just turn off the lights now and just show you that while I'm here talking about that. Get my camera to focus a bit here. And you can see the nice blue tint that comes with that Chromalight display. Very easy to see. And as you can see, there's varying lengths to those index hour marks as you get to the bottom of the dial. And also, you can see it best here where the hour and minute hands are actually skeletonized, if my camera would like to focus. There we go. You can actually see that just the tips of the hour hand and the minute hand are actually illuminated. And when it turns out, turn the lights back on, you can actually see that the reason is so you can actually see that 24-hour dial, that secondary time zone dial offset from the top there to give space for the Rolex crown, of course, and that red triangle that indicates where you're reading from. So, right now, it's just after 1:00 AM, as you can see, on this 24-hour dial. And when you have the hands positioned in that area, the skeletonization actually does allow you to still see those numbers clearly. As you can see, I'm moving the minute hand over those numbers and you can still read them quite easily. Now, onto the functions of this watch, as I said earlier. Now, all of it is done through the crown here on the side, as well as what is known as the Command bezel. So, if you unwind the crown at three o'clock position to the first position, this allows you to wind the watch regardless of the position of the Command bezel. So, if you say, have it rotate all the way to the right, this is like a locked position, like a safety so that you don't accidentally change anything about the watch. This is the default position that you'd mostly keep it in most of the time. So, if you're at a dead stop, about 20 to 30 full winds will get you to the full power reserve, nothing too new there. Pull the crown out to the final position and in this locked Command bezel position, if you rotate it all the way clockwise so that it stops, the crown does nothing so there's no accidental movement, no accidental changing of your dial or any of the components within. So, starting all the way on the left side, rotate completely counterclockwise, this allows you to change the minute hand, by extension also the hour hand, and most importantly, that 24-hour offset dial. So, if you wanna keep track of a secondary time zone, say, your home time, you have that all available to you. As you can see, as I'm rotating the minute hand all the way around the dial, just set it to whatever time your home time happens to be. Let's just say it's after 1:00 AM where your home time is, then set your minute hand to the correct position based on the position of that seconds hand. By the way, you do have that hacking seconds function so you do have this stop-seconds allowing you to place that minute hand precisely wherever it needs to go, synchronize that up to an atomic clock, just the minute hand and your secondary hour. More on the rest of this function in just a second. So, once that's all set up, you've got that nicely aligned, press the crown. Well, you could press the crown back in if this happens to be the correct time. But what you could do is actually rotate the Command bezel once to the clockwise direction, this allows you to move the minute hand. The best motor function here is to move it forward only because if you move it backward, the quick set date sort of gets stuck in a really weird medium position. So, in order to avoid potentially damaging the movement, just move it forward to whichever part of the 24-hour cycle you happen to be on based on when the date happens to move forward in that little aperture at the three o'clock position. So, let's say, it's 10:00 AM where we are. Now, you have that all set. You have your home time, your secondary time zone, as well as your local time both set. There's a little bit more to it than that though, because if you rotate the command bezel one more time in the clockwise position, this allows you to quick set the date. You can do this at any time of the day, so it doesn't really matter. But you rotate it clockwise, you can actually move the date backwards. If you rotate it counterclockwise, you move the date forwards. And also, if you've been paying attention a little bit more closely, you'll note that there is also an extra set of apertures at the very ends of these index hour marks on the dial. The only other thing that comes in multiples of 12 would be the number of months per year. So, each aperture signifies a month, one o'clock signifying January, February, March, April, and so forth. So, as you can see, as I'm moving the date forward and zooming past all these days here, you can see that the aperture does change depending on the month. Now, if I move this to say April 31st, that's an impossible date because April only has 30 days. That's possible through the quick set function. But if you have this watch running normally, keep in mind that if you do, say, move the hour hand forward here, what do you think will happen if I move the hour hand past midnight and we're on April 30th? Well, actually the correct thing happens, it moves to May 1st. And that's thanks to the internal calendar called SOROS made by Rolex. It's made so that you basically never really need to set any of the calendar functions on this watch. The only time you'll ever really need to do so would be during February, which has the most irregular number of days between 27, 29 days per year, depending on the year, of course. So, what makes all of this work is on the inside. It's a movement, the 9001 made in-house by Rolex. You can't see through the case back, but you do have your extra gold content there for the full value of the watch. It has the plus or minus two second per day time differential after casing giving it that superlative chronometer certification as printed on every Rolex dial. You can see it right under the name Sky-Dweller Oyster Perpetual there at the six o'clock side of the dial. It does have the center hour, minute and seconds hands with the 24-hour display on this off-center disc as you can see. The second time zone indicated therein. It has the instantaneous annual calendar at the three o'clock position with the rapid-setting of the date. Month display via the 12 apertures around the edge of this dial. And it also has the stop-seconds for precise time setting when you're setting the minutes, all of that, which I had just demonstrated. The oscillator on the inside, the Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and the high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers allow you to basically get relatively close to magnets or any sort of circuitry, and it won't affect the timekeeping ability of this watch. It can also take a few bumps here and there, no issue either. It also has the center mounted Perpetual rotor, giving you the bidirectional self-winding. That means that once you have this watch wind up to its full capacity, you can just wear this on your wrist and the natural movements of your wrist throughout the day will keep it nicely wound up all the way up to an approximate 72 hours of power reserve. That means you can set this down on a Friday evening, you can pick it back up on a Monday morning ready to conduct business, no need to wind the watch. Just wear it all day Monday and you're good, back up to the full power reserve. That's three whole days of power reserve that you don't even need to wear this watch. And very, very well so because having this full gold construction does give it a little bit more malleability, not quite as strong as a full steel watch. So, you do have that working for you with that power reserve. Good from Rolex there. Excuse me. Now, moving on to the framing of this watch, now that I'm zoomed out here. You do have the Oysterflex bracelet. So on the very front, it has that echoed effect of that integrated link into the case there. High polish in the center, satin brush finishing on the outside there. But the rest of this is a full composite rubber strap. And on the top, if my camera would like to focus, it still has that same general look of that integrated link. And if you look underneath, there's also these little channels underneath it. Stop ruining my fun, camera. So, you have these little integrated little channels in here. And I'll show you why they do that in a moment when I try the watch on for you, so you can see the sizing. So, these Oysterflex straps only really come in very distinct and discrete sizes. So, make sure that when you purchase one, you get one with the size that fit your wrist. If you open up the clasp here, you do have the Oyster folding clasp as you can see, with the raised crown logo on the center there, just lift the top to open it, to unhook it. You have the Rolex stamped logo, the full logo on the inside. You also have some set of hallmarks in there to show you that you are indeed dealing with rare metals, or in this case, rose gold, Everose gold as you have it. And also, if you take a look under these lugs, taking a look at the same position, you do have the extra little hallmarks underneath so that you can see that you are still dealing with a full set of rare metals here. Right now, while I'm here, I can actually also show you that there is a glide lock underneath this clasp. You can just simply pull it out and you can actually slide it for, I believe, a full 20 millimeters of range so that you can then place it. You can size it for your wrist. You don't have to have the exact sizing for the top Oysterflex strap, at least, at the 12 o'clock side of the watch case. But the closer, the better. And this allows you to basically size this to fit over, say, jacket sleeves should you so desire, very much in line with say like Sea-Dwellers or even the Deepseas from Rolex, kind of opposites in terms of the functionality of these watches. So this one, the Sky-Dweller for those who are constantly flying and in the air, this gives you the opportunity to, if you have excessive swelling of the wrist, you do have that ability to comfortably wear it at any point during your flight, after your flight and so forth. Now, while I'm here, I can actually try it on my wrist, give you my thoughts as to how it wears on my wrist, a seven-inch wrist in circumference. Now, taking a look at it straight face on, you can see on my wrist, seven inches, 42 millimeters is still kind of big for me. I do prefer the 36 millimeter case sizes. Once they start making these in 36 millimeters, if they do, I will definitely be taking one of those. But at 42 millimeters, you do have that extra, what's called wrist presence, meaning that it's large and in charge. You can tell that this is a Sky-Dweller just by looking at it from a distance. You don't even need to be this close to see it. And looking at it face on, very easy to read with those index hour marks. The Chromalight during the day, actually acts as if there's like a cream color to them. So, it gives a very, very distinct look, very easy to read. And with the white text and the white lettering on this dial, incredibly easy to read with this darker chocolate coloration, as you can see. And taking a look at down the wrist, it actually does fit my wrist quite nicely. Not my preference when it comes to the size, but it does fit very comfortably. And I can recommend this to anyone, even down to six and a half inches, maybe even lower than that in terms of the wrist size there, the circumference of the wrist. Slight bit of space underneath the lugs. And that's because the little channels underneath the Oysterflex straps that I mentioned earlier, do keep these straps raised a bit. For good measure, because they do allow the wrist to vent so that it can continue to breathe so you can continue to wear this. And should you so desire, if you wear your watches a little bit more loosely, you do have that ability to move it back around the wrist so you can more easily read the time or date or any time of the month or any time of the year. It's all here on this dial as you can see. So, very, very good from Rolex there to integrate so much into, well, something relatively small, but still pretty big, large and in charge. That's what I say for this Rolex Sky-Dweller reference number 326235 with a chocolate dial, Everose gold case. So, let us know what you think down in the comments below. Be sure to like this video.
