Rolex Unveils Jubilee Bracelet For Two Precious Metal Sky-Dwellers

by Sameera Gamage

The brand has given the Jubilee treatment for their 18-carat yellow gold and 18-carat Everose gold Sky-Dweller timepieces.

For this year’s Watches & Wonders, I think it’s safe to say that Rolex hasn’t played it too risky compared to the last few years, releasing mainly cosmetic changes for many of their models. We saw the GMT-Master II (click here for the article!) get a new black & grey-toned bezel, which, while not everyone was expecting it, is different to the existing colourful GMT collection.

Then 1908, while still an aesthetic change, is by far one of the best releases from the brand during this year’s event (read Mario’s piece on the Rolex 1908 here!). The 1908’s new ice blue dial received the Guilloché treatment, using the very complex finishing technique to create a beautiful artistic dial.

Now, Rolex has changed the look of its Sky-Dweller, particularly the 18-carat Everose gold and 18-carat yellow gold models. For the first time, these two models have been equipped with the jubilee bracelet. However, it needs to be stated that other metal variations of Rolex’s Sky-Dweller models already come equipped with the jubilee bracelet.

One of Rolex’s most complicated timepieces, the Sky-Dweller offers a combination of GMT and annual calendar, both of which are controlled by the bezel and crown. Prior to 2021, the Sky-Dweller was offered in either the Oyster bracelet with polished centre links or an Oysterflex bracelet (Rolex’s rubber strap variant). During Watches & Wonders 2021, the brand offered the jubilee bracelet as an option for Oystersteel and the white gold model alongside the Rolesor (18-carat yellow gold and steel).

The addition of the jubilee bracelet on the Everose and yellow-gold model shows us that almost all of Rolex’s watches are getting the jubilee treatment. With the fluted bezel, the jubilee bracelet is always a winning combination. The jubilee bracelet was first introduced in 1945, as part of Rolex’s 40th anniversary celebrations. Compared to the Oyster bracelet with a 3-link design, the jubilee features five links, with the middle three links having a polished finish. This polished finish is what truly makes this bracelet loved by watch fanatics. The finish plays beautifully with light, compared to the bracelet’s outer links, which gives it a much more luxurious look overall.

Final Thoughts

While it’s not a major update to the model, the aesthetic change to the 18-carat yellow gold and Everose models is welcomed. I personally love the Everose gold model, with many of the dial colour combinations Rolex offers, working perfectly with this case and bracelet material.

The Everose Sky-Dweller on the blue-green dial is just simply beautiful. Now add an 18-carat Everose jubilee bracelet to the mix, and the watch immediately elevates into a different level of luxury and aesthetic.
