Who Wears a Rolex Sky-Dweller?

August 15, 2016

Irishman and UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor will go up against welterweight Nate Diaz on Saturday, August 20th in a highly anticipated rematch after their first fight a few months ago. When he is not in the gym training for his next battle, the mixed martial arts superstar spends time curating a wardrobe worthy of a distinguished gentleman that includes the finest luxury timepieces in the world. His latest acquisition is the Everose gold Rolex Sky-Dweller with a chocolate dial shown in the photo below.

Introduced by Rolex in 2012, the Sky-Dweller is their most complicated watch, featuring an annual calendar and second time zone feature controlled by a Ring Command bezel. Only precious metal configurations are available, making it a prestigious addition to the watchmaker's Oyster Perpetual line. The case diameter measures 42mm and the bezel is fluted, giving the large watch a textured look that reflects the light and catches the eye.

The Sky-Dweller is popular amongst athletes, with golfers Tiger Woods and Adam Scott photographed wearing it - Scott modeling the watch for Rolex's Sky-Dweller ads. Rolex brand ambassador Roger Federer also has a Sky-Dweller in his collection as does boxer Floyd Mayweather. A boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor has been floated around for months, with McGregor recently saying he would accept the match under Mayweather's terms.

"Right now I have Floyd running around the Showtime offices gathering my money. That's what he's doing. He's running around the Showtime offices, begging for those executives to come up with $100 million cash for me to fight me. So as soon as he gets my money, we can fight." McGregor told mmafighting.com, citing financial hold ups for the delay.

Sports stars aren't the only fans of the Sky-Dweller. The greats of hip hop and R&B have also embraced the model, with Jay Z, 50 Cent and Chris Brown all photographed wearing one over the past few years. Trey Songz is also a Sky-Dweller owner, showing it off all over his Instagram feed. I've embedded a photo of Songz rocking his Sky-Dweller with Dave East below.
