Time ticking on Rolex display

By Amanda Poole

Time is running out for Northern Ireland watch enthusiasts to sneak a peek at the new Rolex Basle Collection.

The luxury watches are currently on display at John H Lunn jewellers in Queen's Arcade and includes Rolex's latest highly coveted timepiece, the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller.

With 14 patents - five of which are new - the Sky-Dweller provides the information global travellers need to keep track of time.

It is the first Rolex model with two time zones, an annual calendar and the ingenuity of the groundbreaking Ring Command bezel.

Described as a "majestic expression" of the art of watchmaking, it's available in 18c white, yellow or Everose gold cast.

Prices start at £26,000 and you have until close of business tomorrow to check out the watch before the entire collection is whisked back to London by specialist security staff.
