BA nA hillS golf ClUB The IMG-managed Ba Na Hills Golf Club is set in the foothills and native forests of the famed Ba Na Hills, only 25 minutes from Da Nang City, Vietnam. This stunning property is set among some of the most impressive mountain ranges in the region complementing the inaugural Luke Donald designed course. It is destined to become one of the finest in Asia. At 7,595 yards (6,945 meters) the par 72 18-hole Championship golf course provides a balance of challenge, enjoyment and excitement to golfers of all levels and abilities. The front 9 is somewhat more traditional forest / parkland in style, while the back 9 winds its way through the twists and turns of the surrounding hillside. The bunkering style is impressively bold with grass rolled over the faces leaving the sand partly visible from the tees. The greens feature subtle undulations and encourage a variety of approach shots.

About the Designer Luke Donald is widely regarded as one of the game’s true gentlemen. He represented Europe in the Ryder Cup 4 times and won 16 events around the world including 5 times on the PGA Tour. In 2011 he ascended to No.1 in the World Rankings making history by becoming the first player ever to finish No.1 on both the PGA Tour and European Tour money lists in the same season, resulting in Player of the Year honors on both tours. Ba Na Hills is Luke Donald’s first design project. “To be able to work on my first ever golf course design at Ba Na Hills is a tremendous opportunity. We have a great site with good elevation change and incredible existing natural features including large trees, streams and mountain backdrops”.

S

About the Course Ba Na Hills Golf Club is a mountain course with a diverse mix of natural topography and vegetation. Every hole and vantage point is framed by a beautiful backdrop of local native forest. The entire course is lit from the ďŹ rst tee until the 18th green, allowing patrons the unique experience of playing golf aî…šer dark.

world luxury | WORLD’S BEST GOLF |


LUXURY GOLF hole 1 – 453 yards, Par 4 The opening hole at Ba Na Hills is a good chance to get “out of the box” running. The fairway, well defined on the le by a bunker, is quite wide and slightly uphill from the tee box. The green slopes from its highest point at the le back to its lowest point at the right front, and is protected in front by a gaping bunker. Tee shots placed in the right center of the fairway should provide the best approach to the first. hole 2 – 257 yards, Par 3 The 2nd hole from the back tees is a monstrous Par 3 of some 260 yards. To the golfer’s relief it is slightly downhill, and of course the middle and forward tees are far more forgiving. As well, though it is long, the green and surrounds are relatively wide, so coming at this one with a long iron or fairway metal while challenging, is very fair. hole 3 – 455 yards, Par 4 This mid length Par 4 is classic by design. It is a gentle dogleg right with a target bunker on the le side defining the tee shot. Because the green is well protected on the right side as well by more bunkers, the closer you can drive the ball to the fairway bunker, without going in, the beer your approach shot will be. Safe tee shots will find the right center of the fairway, and approach shots to the green will tend to find the le side in order to avoid the right side bunkers. hole 4 – 547 yards, Par 5 The 4th is the first of back to back Par fives. Take advantage of this one if you can. For the big hiers it will be reachable in two, and for those who will take the safer 3 shot route, there is ample landing area to your favorite wedge distance so long as you avoid the fairway bunker on the right. The elevated green is well protected at the front right and le by bunkers, however well played approaches should leave you with a legitimate birdie chance. hole 5 – 708 yards, Par 5 Even on the best of days, this bear of a hole is a true 3-shoer. From the championship tees there is a considerable carry over the lake, however, from the forward and middle tees, this carry is far easier to negotiate. Aer a double dogleg first to the right, and then back to the le as you approach the green, all of which meanders amongst 5 fairway bunkers, you arrive at a green, open in front, that is well protected on the le and right by more bunkers. A par here will always be a good score.

hole 6 – 472 yards, Par 4 The long Par 4, 6th hole is no place to take your foot off the gas. The tee shot requires a medium carry over a hazard that then runs along the right side of the fairway. Tee shots must be center to le center in order to have the best approach to the green that is protected on the right front side. A small bunker behind the green will penalize the golfer who is too aggressive. hole 7 – 443 yards, Par 4 The dynamic and exciting 7th hole successfully creates a great short Par 4, one of the biggest challenges in golf course design. Players can decide how aggressive they want to be off the tee, but they risk driving the ball into the water that comes into play about 290 yards off the tee. The smart shot will be to lay up before the water, between the two fairway bunkers, leaving a short to mid iron approach over the hazard that runs along the le side of the green as well. The aggressive line, to drive it over the bunker on the right, brings much risk into play off the tee, however, if executed properly, gives the reward of a much simpler and shorter approach… and a birdie opportunity. hole 8 – 192 yards, Par 3 The 8th is a stunning Par 3. The forced carry over water is more of a challenge the farther le (or toward the green) you choose to play. If the player wants to choose a more safe route, the carry slightly to the right is far shorter, and allows the player to hit to a bail out collection area where Par is still possible. Targeting the pin can be rewarding here, however, not only is there water to deal with, the front and le is also guarded by a massive bunker as well. hole 9 – 478 yards, Par 4 The fairly long 9th, is a great Par 4 finishing hole. Though the fairway is quite wide with target bunkers on the right and then farther up on the le, it is the water feature adjacent to the le side of the fairway that becomes a stream crossing in front of the green that truly define this hole. From the championship tees there is a short forced carry but from the other tees this is not necessary. A well placed tee shot will enable the player to play safely to the le front of the green where the carry over the stream is shorter. If the pin is on the right, ignore it, play to the safe side, secure your par, and head to the 10th.

world luxury | WORLD’S BEST GOLF |


LUXURY GOLF hole 10 – 339 yards, Par 4 Another great short Par 4. The 10th is the shortest Par 4 at Ba Na Hills, and the fairway is extremely wide as well, however don’t let that fool you. With a cluster of bunkers in the center of a fairway that rises some 50 meters in elevation, to a tricky approach to an elevated green, not only is this hole incredibly beautiful, but uniquely challenging as well. hole 11 – 518 yards, Par 5 The 11th is arguably the toughest Par 5 at Ba Na Hills. Its length is considerable making it a bona fide 3-shot Par 5, but the water hazard that runs the entire length of the fairway and green to the le and the dense jungle to the right make this hole seem narrower than it really is. The fairway in the targeted landing areas is actually quite generous, but the mental impression makes it seem more difficult than it is in reality. A Par here, and a climb up the hill to the 12th is in order. hole 12 – 225 yards, Par 3 From the 12th tee one can see as far as the eye will take you. This Par 3, long on the scorecard but not so much in reality due to the 50 meter drop in elevation, is awe inspiring. Great golf course designers are known as much for finding their golf course as designing it, and this is one such example. Expect the hole to play at least 2 clubs less than the yardage would indicate because of the elevation drop. hole 13 – 471 yards, Par 4 The 13th is a mid length Par 4, that from the back tee has a formidable carry off the tee. From the forward tees, the benevolent designers have made this far less intimidating, but fairway bunkers at the landing area need to be avoided. Right center of the fairway is ideal. The real challenge here is the approach to a green well guarded on the le by a pond, and on the right by bunkers. hole 14 – 608 yards, Par 5 The 14th is another substantial Par 5 at over 600 yards, and slightly back uphill. There is jungle that needs to be avoided on the le for most of the hole, and the green is guarded at the front and le by a water hazard, and on the right by a bunker. As the fairway bends around target bunkers on the le, and then for the approach area to the right, well placed tee shots and second shots should result in a fair approach and a birdie opportunity.

hole 15 – 472 yards, par 4 The 15th looks longer than it is because of the downhill gradient. However, with water right and bunkers and jungle le off the tee, placement will be at a premium to start this hole. A well placed tee shot however, will leave you with a good approach to a welcoming green especially if you arrive from the right and front portion. Avoid le of the green to be safe.

hole 16 – 217 yards, Par 3 The elevated tee at the 16th provides a spectacular view of the island green Par 3. Though it is quite long from the Luke tee, it is not too demanding from the middle tees especially as the green is quite large and receptive. Of course, as it is an island green, you will notice that the fairway is missing completely. hole 17 – 466 yards, Par 4 The Par 4 17th is pure fun. A great sharp dog leg le that will require a targeted tee shot between the fairway bunkers and a precise shot to a green with water front and le. The player can choose to “lay back” off the tee into a very wide landing area, providing a longer approach, or take a more aggressive club and line, bringing dangers into play, in an effort to set up a birdie opportunity. As the penultimate hole… enjoy. hole 18 – 473 yards, Par 4 The 18th is a classic finishing hole as it approaches right in front of the clubhouse veranda restaurant. Your friends and fellow competitors will be on hand to see how you survive this long Par 4. The fairway is quite wide with only minimal trouble from target bunkers short right and longer on the le. As the elevated and undulating green is protected on the right by bunkers, the le side of the fairway provides the best line of approach. However, miss the green le and you will be pitching to an elevated green with bunkers on the opposite side, approach with caution.

CASA DE

CAMPO RESORT & VILLAS a TROPICal PlaYGROUND Welcome to the most exclusive resort destination in the Caribbean—Casa de Campo Resort and Villas—a stunning 7,000-acre hotel, resort, and residential community in La Romana on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic. Our tropical playground features a unique array of amenities, including an expansive marina, tennis and polo facilities, and three championship golf courses—including Pete Dye’s masterpiece, Teeth of the Dog, the #1 ranked course in the Caribbean, and number 39 in the world—and so much more. But more than anything, Casa de Campo is a state of mind and a way of life rather than just a mark on the map. For new guests, we welcome you to experience our warm hospitality.

UP FOR THE CHallENGE? It’s been said there’s no greater way to reveal one’s character than a round of golf. When you step up to the tee on one of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas’ three legendary golf courses, you’ll be tested both in skill and mele. Designed by the legendary, and World Golf Hall of Fame member, Pete Dye; Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and The Links have been meticulously carved from the coral shores, craggy mountains, and rolling hills of the Dominican Republic landscape, and offer a oneof-a-kind golf experience. Only at Casa de Campo can you play a different course each day at the same resort, with three completely different experiences. PlaY THE ROUND OF a lIFETIME With courses carved from the earth on the edge of the ocean, overlooking the Chavón River, and winding throughout our spectacular grounds, it’s no wonder this classic sport is so integrated in our daily life. From beginner to expert, each round offers a challenge whether it’s your first or 50th time playing.

world luxury | WORLD’S BEST GOLF |

TEETH OF THE DOG - all BITE, NO BaRK. Pete Dye’s signature course, the #1 course in the Caribbean, and the #52 ranked course in the world— Teeth of the Dog has a reputation that’s well deserved. Meticulously hand carved from the rugged rock and coral of the Dominican coastline, the hardfought and challenging creation of Teeth of the Dog is an apt description for what playing a round can be like. Make no mistake, if you dare challenge the Dog it will bite back. But your efforts will be rewarded with 18 jaw-droppingly-beautiful holes—including seven right along the ocean—and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve played one of the best courses in the world. How many of your friends can say the same?

DYE FORE—TO DIE FOR Let’s talk numbers: 27 holes; 7,740 yards long; 7 cliffside holes dropping 300 feet to the Chavón River below; and breathtaking 360 views. Characterized by spectacular views of the Dominican mountains, the Chavón River, the Marina, and Altos de Chavón, this challenging cliff-side course is a delight for players of all levels. Now some more numbers for you: 12 and 15—two of the greatest par three holes in the world; 5 the amount of holes on the Lagos course with lakes in play; and 1 the number of strokes it takes to get started on the round of a lifetime.


LUXURY GOLF

THE lINKS—RISE TO THE CHallENGE Reminiscent of traditional links courses typically found in the British Isles, these 18 holes wind through the interior of Casa de Campo and offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and the Resort grounds. And even though The Links course might not be right beside the ocean, there’s still plenty of opportunity to go to the beach—no less than five holes feature water hazards. Rolling hills and ocean views offer an unique and fun golf experience.

THE HOTEl Greet each day with views of the spectacular Dominican Republic landscape as you emerge from your spacious and cozy room. Nestled along the lobby and main pool, our hotel rooms offer convenience and easy access to resort amenities thanks to your own personal golf cart. You’ll be able to explore all that Casa de Campo has to offer quickly and comfortably.

Another Pete Dye creation, The Links was completely overhauled in 2012 to make it every bit as challenging as the other courses at Casa de Campo.

THE HOME OF GOlF For more than 600 years St Andrews Links has felt the tread of every great champion and flinched as millions of golfers have hammered and hacked, swaed and swiped at balls of wood, leather, gua percha and balata. It has felt the caress of hickory and the sharp assault of blades of steel and titanium. It is a living, breathing timeline with each and every single person who walks upon it an integral part of our history, our love and our passion for this place.

OlD COURSE 6721 yards, par 72 Follow in the footsteps of legends The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.

THE CaSTlE COURSE 6759 yards, par 71 The newest addition to St Andrews Links, The Castle Course opened in 2008 becoming the seventh course at the Home of Golf and part of the largest public golfing complex in Europe. Set on a rugged cliff-top with spectacular views over St Andrews, The Castle Course offers a memorable golfing experience.

THE NEw COURSE 6625 yards, par 71 The oldest ‘new’ course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbour. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of Links golf.

JUBIlEE COURSE 6742 yards, par 72 The third championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, aer seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988.

STRaTHTYRUM COURSE 5620 yards, par 69 Designed to complement the tougher championship layouts at the Home of Golf, the Strathtyrum was opened in 1993. Although few in number (15), the bunkers are cunningly placed and there is considerable emphasis on iron play accuracy. The greens themselves are large and have slopes and borrows which can test even the most confident puers.

EDEN COURSE 6250 yards, par 70 Only slightly more forgiving than its contemporaries on the seaward side of the Links, the Eden Course was built in 1914 by Harry S. Colt whose use of natural boundaries and severe bunkers provides a course full of character.

BalGOVE COURSE 1520 yards, par 30 The Balgove is the only 9-hole course at the Home of Golf and primarily caters for families, children and beginners. Featuring bunkers and a double green, the Balgove is the perfect practice ground for Links golf and consolidates St Andrews Links’ reputation as a destination that caters for all ages and abilities.

QUINTA DO LAGO Destination The 150-kilometre Algarvian coastline is blessed by golden sands and the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The deep blue of the skyline overhead is broken only by the flight of migrating birds and the beautiful landscape is bathed in sunshine.

This beautiful region is also famous for its unique history and culture, much of which resides in its tangled, cobbled streets and walkways. Beautifully preserved and evoking a bygone age, they are still inhabited by traditional crasmen and provide the seing for the lively open markets that form the centrepiece of daily life. Renowned for its elegant Portuguese architecture, the Algarve has its own distinctive beat and tempo. Café terraces provide the stage for hushed gossip and lively conversations, while restaurants offer a hearty welcome and a menu of fresh Mediterranean produce. Freshly-caught seafood abounds here with dishes such as Caldeirada de Peixe (fish-stew) or Cataplana de Amêijoas (clams steamed in a copper pan) being the most authentic. Beyond the coast, plateaus and plains dominate the Algarvian landscape. Worlds apart, yet only steps away from the tranquil peace inland, the Algarve comes alive at night with an array of entertainment including bars, discos, marinas and casinos. Golf Courses Set amongst 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, Quinta do Lago is one of the most highly regarded golf and residential developments in Europe.

Opened in 1972 and located just 15 minutes from Faro airport, the resort has been at the forefront of European golf with three award-winning championship courses matched by outstanding practice facilities including Europe’s only Paul McGinley Golf Academy and the only TaylorMade Performance Center in Southern Europe. Named ‘Best New Golf Course in Europe’ at the 2014 World Golf Awards, Quinta do Lago’s North Course has been redesigned by renowned American golf architect Beau Welling and European Ryder Cup winning captain Paul McGinley with the emphasis firmly on precision and strategy, making it a course that is playable and fun for golfers of all abilities. A favourite among European Tour professionals, Quinta do Lago’s South Course – an eight-time venue of the Portuguese Open – calls for accurate driving and precise iron play if you’re to return a good score while Laranjal, built on an old orangery, is a great test for players of all levels, with lightning-fast, giant-sized greens and a plethora of Augusta-style bunkers among the many highlights. Away from the fairways, the resort’s extensive leisure facilities guarantee there is plenty to keep everyone occupied, with events, tennis, cycling and watersports just some of the activities available. The resort’s stunning location by the beach offers the perfect place to relax and unwind while its wide array of restaurants, both formal and informal, take advantage of the fresh Mediterranean produce that the resort has become famous for.

North Course The North Course is the newest addition to Quinta do Lago’s five-star golf facilities, the totally revamped course has been one of the most talked about golf projects in 2014 and is set to be one of the new stars of European golf and the new number one course at Quinta do Lago. Redesigned by renowned American architect Beau Welling in close collaboration with European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley, the new layout has been built to the highest specifications with a €9.6m investment. The North Course has been redeveloped with the emphasis firmly on precision and strategy. Among the changes introduced on the 6,776-yard course which has been closed since last December, all greens, tees, bunkers, irrigation and drainage systems and cart paths have been rebuilt using the latest state-of-the-art technology. Four sets of tees have been introduced on each hole to accommodate players of all levels and golfers will be challenged by a combination of undulating greens, well-positioned bunkers and water hazards. A low-cut Bermuda grass approach has been introduced around greens to create a myriad of recovery shot options for increased satisfaction on all levels of play. The aesthetics of the par-72 course have also significantly improved through the introduction of a cool season rough grass and the select planting of native grasses and specimen trees to help the environment. The renovation has also allowed Quinta do Lago to further reduce the impact on the environment by using recycled water and solar energy to maintain the course. The reduction of grassed areas will lessen the impact on the environment and the new design will include the creation of some new animal and plant habitats. McGinley said: “I’ve been coming to Quinta do Lago with my family for many years now and it keeps geing beer and beer. The new design will test golfers in many different ways and I believe this is a great addition to Europe’s leading destination.”

South Course The jewel in the Quinta do Lago crown, the South Course has played host to the Portuguese Open no less than eight times. Designed in 1974 by William Mitchell, who raised the bar by introducing American-standard greens, tees and bunkers to the Algarve, it soon gained a reputation as one of the foremost courses in Europe and remains to this day one of the flagship European Tour Courses.The favourite course of many European tour players, it is a 6,500 metre par 72 set amongst umbrella pines, lakes and wild flowers, overlooking the spectacular scenery of the Ria Formosa National Park.The course hosted the Portuguese Open in 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001, the most memorable, perhaps, being in 1989 when Colin Montgomerie won the title with an incredible 24 under par. He finished 11 strokes ahead and broke the course record with a round of 63.Its championship status does not deter the amateur golfer. Indeed, while the 8th, 15th, and 18th are testing holes for low handicap players, the course provides interest and challenge to golfers of all levels and abilities.Accurate tee shots are essential in order to reach many of the greens in regulation and the course is made more challenging by a good variety of doglegs and strategically located hazards. The front nine holes, which wind their way through parkland, favour a draw, while the back nine, which loop around the lake, favour a fade from the tee. laranjal Course Voted Best Golf Course at the Portuguese 2011 Travel Awards, Laranjal opened in 2009 as the newest course in Quinta do Lago.Originally an orange grove, this beautiful par 72 championship course is situated in the Ludo valley, just 2km east of the resort. Boasting some spectacular fairways and well-defined greens, Laranjal is renowned for its five beautiful lakes and its abundance of umbrella pines, cork and orange trees.At 6,480 meters in length, the course is challenging and it demands the highest levels of concentration and accuracy. Its distinctive rolling terrain has been expertly designed and manicured to provide a world class golfing experience.Comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s, the course is sown with Bermuda grass on the fairways and Penn A4 on the greens, guaranteeing excellent puing surfaces throughout the year. www.quintadolago.com/en/

Druh Belts & Buckles Druh Belts & Buckles is the brainchild of Touring Professional Simon Hurd. The Englishman, known as Hurdy on the European and Asian Tours, was known for the distinctive and colourful pork pie hats he donned on the golf course, but is now beer recognised for his distinguished belt range. “Even as a golf pro, I have always taken an interest in fashion both on and off the golf course, so it seemed a natural progression for me to go into the fashion world,” says Hurdy, a smart dresser with well-tailored aire. “In fact I have been dressed by William Hunt of Savile Row, London, in the past and I soon realised that looking smart means playing smart.”

Druh’s designs in classic black and browns and funky pastels and metallics have fast become the professionals’ style secret, with the likes of Lee Westwood, John Daly, Robert Karlsson, Paul McGinley and Thongchai Jaidee joining 100s of European and Asian Tour players, as well as LPGA and LET players, in choosing Druh belts. "Golf gear has always been perceived as rather staid and dull so I wanted to have a bit of fun designing belts and buckles that were a lile bit funky, yet stylish, and certainly they have been an instant hit with pro golfers all over the world. And now it is the chance for all those amateurs out there to smarten up their golf look with one of my Druh belts!”


LUXURY GOLF

Each belt is handmade using the finest in sustainable and natural materials. Leather and snakeskin straps are matched to Druh’s unique range of interchangeable buckles, which gives Druh customers the opportunity to create their own customised belt to look smart on or off the golf course.

CHaMPIONSHIP COURSE OVERVIEw Although The Address Montgomerie Dubai has evolved into one of the Middle East's most luxurious and desirable golfing destinations in recent times, the key to its success has always remained contingent upon the quality of the golf course that would become the focal point for one of Dubai's most exclusive residential communities, Emirates Hills. The course provides the player with undulating "links land" style fairways with generous landing areas which challenge and intrigue all levels of player. Although large in size, the greens can be very misleading, especially as they are consistently rolling above 9.5feet. Plenty of shape throughout the greens can result in some very trying pus. One of the signature holes is the par 5 fourth, dubbed the Snake hole for its saddleback fairway which doglegs towards the green, with two bunkers behind forming the eyes of the snake. Further on, the par 5 ninth, with water down the le, is a tough finish to the opening half. The par 3 thirteenth, a hole designed in the shape of the UAE, boasts a 360 degree teeing area around an island fairway and green, allowing for a completely different golf hole to be played every time. However, it is the par 5 eighteenth that offers a more classic test.

“At 656 yards it is a monster and, with water protecting the front of the green, it defies even the best player to hit the green in two.” The Address Montgomerie Dubai offers two very different seasons of golf. During winter, the golf course is over-seeded whilst the summer season has the course back to a full stand of Bermuda grass. The turf growth is vigorous during the summer resulting in a very challenging rough. THE aCaDEMY BY TROON GOlF The Academy by Troon Golf, one of the finest teaching facilities in the world right here at The Address Montgomerie Dubai. The aim is to create a learning environment, which develops and improves our students golfing ability and knowledge of their swing through coaching rather than teaching. You will enjoy the difference in the creative and energetic approach of world-renowned professional coaching staff, commied to providing an extraordinary learning experience.

SKY-DwEllER THE OYSTER PERPETUal For those who travel the world... The first Rolex with two time zones and an innovative annual calendar that marks the passage of the months. SIMPlICITY IS THE UlTIMaTE SOPHISTICaTION A distinctive technological masterpiece protected by 14 patents, the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller provides the information global travellers need to keep track of time at a glance. Launched in 2012, the Sky-Dweller is a compelling timepiece of revolutionary design that blends to perfection mechanical sophistication and ease of use. EVEROSE GOlD To preserve the beauty of its pink gold watches, Rolex created and patented an exclusive 18 ct pink gold alloy cast in its own foundry: Everose gold. Introduced in 2005, 18 ct Everose is used on all Rolex Oyster models in pink gold. CHOCOlaTE DIal The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. Characterised by hour markers fashioned from 18 ct gold to prevent tarnishing, every Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection. a lEaTHER STRaP This Sky-Dweller is fied with a luxurious strap that uniquely combines the nobility of leather with the peerless security of a Rolex clasp that makes for secure closure and easy opening.

9001 MOVEMENT The Sky-Dweller is equipped with calibre 9001, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Introduced in 2012, it is one of the most complex calibres ever created by Rolex watchmakers. Nonetheless, it is engineered to ensure simplicity of use: a selector wheel on the outside edge of the 9001 ensures the interaction of the movement and the bezel of the watch to set the Sky-Dweller’s functions. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 9001 is a certified Swiss Chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable. DUal TIME ZONE The two time zones are displayed simultaneously. Local time is indicated by the conventional centre hour, minute and seconds hands. It can be set quickly and easily by means of a mechanism that allows the hour hand to be adjusted independently in one-hour increments both forwards and backwards. Neither the minute and seconds nor the reference time in the second time zone are affected. And, since the watch is not stopped, accuracy is preserved. Reference time in the traveller’s usual place of residence or work is read on a rotating off-centre disc. A fixed inverted red triangle points to the wearer’s chosen reference time. The disc’s 24-hour display allows travellers to clearly distinguish daytime hours from night-time hours in the distant time zone (for example, 10 p.m. versus 10 a.m.). The date change is linked to local time and occurs within a few milliseconds at midnight. So the date displayed in the aperture is always the current date in the wearer’s local time zone.
