You can see with the gold bezels, round Oyster cases, three-link bracelets and the calendar indications on the dial, it is very clear that the Sky-Dweller and Day-Date are two Rolex watches that share many design details in the UK. However, each model has a unique approach to the Rolex dress watch genre. But they are luxurious and elegant. Read on as Rolex Sky-Dweller Replica compares to Fake Rolex Day-Date to learn what each model offers. And you will make sure which one is your favorite watch.
The Replica Rolex Day-Date Is An Older Model
The Day-Date model was first introduced in 1956 and has become one of Rolex’s icons in its more than 60-year history. In addition to a novel dial layout, including a window at 12 o’clock, with a full day of the week and a date window at 3 o’clock. Rolex Day-Date Replica Watch is also equipped with a special bracelet style called “President”.
The semi-circular link of the Rolex President Bracelet with a three-link configuration has become one of the most recognizable watch band styles in history. In addition, Day-Date itself is also known as the Rolex President’s Watch — not only because of its bracelet but also because of this particular model that continues to be popular with presidents and other successful high-profile personalities. On the other hand, the Rolex Sky-Dweller is the brand’s latest model, which was first released in 2012.
The Fake Rolex Sky-Dweller Is Available In More Metals
From the beginning, Rolex has only the Day-Date President in the precious metals sector. In addition to 950 platinum, there are 18k yellow, white and rose gold. In the past, there were also Tridor Rolex President replica watches, which put all three gold colors on one watch. Although a few “prototype” examples are known, there have never been standard production Day-Date watches in stainless steel or two-tone steel and gold, and we suspect they will always exist.
Instead, the Rolex Sky-Dweller started as a collection of Solid Gold Watches; however, in 2017, the Rolex replica expanded the collection to include two Rolesor models. Rolesor is the company’s term for combining gold and steel parts with a watch. One is a classic combination of yellow gold and steel, and the other is mainly made of steel, but with a white gold fluted bezel. As a result, there are yellow gold, Everose gold, white gold (now discontinued), yellow character, and Yellow Rolesor, and White Rolesor versions of the Rolex Sky-Dweller available. They are popular with people all over the world.
The Rolex Day-Date Has More Design Variety, Isn’t It?
Although the Rolex Sky-Dweller has more metal options, it is only available in a 42mm housing. In addition, although there are several Sky-Dweller models with leather straps, this special Rolex watch is mainly equipped with a sports triple link oyster bracelet.
Over the years, however, Day-Date has seen four different sizes and various bracelet options. The classic choice is Day-Date 36, with (you can guess) a 36mm oyster box and a presidential bracelet. This was the measurement of Day-Date’s president when it was launched in the 1950s, and it remains part of the current Rolex catalog. At some point in the early 2000s, Rolex released a special Day-Date lineup called “Masterpieces.” A masterpiece of Day-Date (now discontinued) sports a 39 mm case and a pendant pearl master bracelet.
In 2008, Rolex introduced the Day-Date II, which is a large 41mm case with thick lugs and thick bezels. However, as Rolex replaced it with Day-Date 40 in 2015, this series was short-lived. Compared to the Day-Date II model, the Day-Date 40 watch has a slightly smaller case, thinner lugs, and a thinner bezel.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that, in addition to the president and pearl master bracelets mentioned above, Rolex also installed a selection of Replica Day-Date Watches with oyster bracelets and leather straps in the past. Finally, Rolex replica used a range of different bezel styles on Day-Date, including fluted, smooth, gem-set, bark trim and more. In contrast, Sky-Dweller only offers a fluted bezel. So, given all the different sizes, bracelets and bezel replacements over the years, the Day-Date range offers more varieties than Sky-Dweller.
But The Sky-Dweller Is More Complicated Than Day-Date
Both Sky-Dweller and Day-Date are Rolex Calendar Watches, but Sky-Dweller is significantly more complicated. The Rolex Day-Date replica indicates time, day, and date, with two calendar windows jumping to the next calendar window at midnight.
In addition to indicating the time and date, the Rolex Sky-Dweller Replica also displays the month indicator through 12 windows, which are adjacent to the hour markers on the periphery of the dial. Rolex Sky-Dweller can also indicate two time zones at the same time, with a reference time set on the 24-hour disc. And, because the local hour hand can jump in one-hour increments without disturbing the minutes or 24-hour hands, the Sky-Dweller is actually a “real” GMT watch — the ultimate watch for travelers who travel frequently.
However, the most impressive thing about Rolex Sky-Dweller is that it provides annual calendar complexity. So as long as the watch is running, the watch will automatically adjust to indicate the correct date, regardless of whether there are 30 or 31 days in the month. Therefore, the only time that the Sky-Dweller actually needs to be adjusted is March 1.
Anyway, Rolex Sky-Dweller is more expensive
If we take two comparable models from each set, we can immediately see that Sky-Dweller is more expensive than Day-Date. For example, the Everose Sky-Dweller ref. 326935 retails for $ 49,450 and the Everose Day-Date 40 ref. 228235 retails for $ 39,250.
However, the entry price point for Sky-Dweller (for current models) is lower due to the white role option. Steel Sky-Dweller ref. 326935 retails for $ 14,800, while the cheapest current production Rolex President is Gold Day-Date 36 ref. 128238 for a retail price of $ 33,150. However, due to the long history of Day-Date, there are many older or discontinued models in the secondary market that can pick up less than $ 10,000. So if we consider older quotes, the entry-level price point for Rolex Day-Date President is lower than the Sky-Dweller watch.
On the other hand, because Day-Date offers platinum and/or gems (these two options are not currently provided by Sky-Dweller), there are multiple Rolex President watch models, which are much more expensive than the most expensive Sky-Dweller references.

Taking a closer look at the Rolex Sky-Dweller as an evolution of Day-Date is not an extension. Rolex Sky-Dweller borrows many of the same design features of Day-Date. But it is larger, more complex, and therefore often more expensive. The true beauty of these two models is that they are super-named Rolex watches that make a strong statement on the wrist.
