Roger wore his steel and white gold 42MM Rolex SKY-DWELLER with a black dial during the awards ceremony for the Australian Open. The Rolex SKY-DWELLER is a GMT Annual Calendar which is the first all-new Rolex watch model introduced since the original Rolex YACHT-MASTER in 1992. The red indicator on the edge of the dial at 7 O'clock is the month indicator, and the inner ring keeps 24 hour time in a second time-zone. This is a very cool looking watch!

One of the really cool unique features of the SKY-DWELLER is the fluted bezel is used to switch between all the functions of the watch. Rolex calls this feature Rolex Ring Command. People have always loved how Rolex sports models like the Submariner and GMT-Master have spinning bezels. My first Rolex was a Submariner and after I got it I kept fidgeting with the unidirectional spinning bezel. Same with my GMT-Master, which spun both ways. When I got my first Rolex Datejust and Day-Date I kept trying to spin the fluted bezel even though I knew it didn't spin. 

Roger got very emotional after accepting the trophy and started crying tears of joy, which you can see in the video below.
