Rolex Air King

After working with various pioneer aviators in the 1930’s, in 1958 the first Rolex Air King watch was launched as an homage to all pilots.  The Rolex Air King 116900 is the latest in the line and it brings with it a more modern, more bold look to the range with its Arabic / Explorer combo dial and green accents.

The watch itself is solid and functional and the black dial is designed to be read clearly for navigational calculations – it’s a good size too at 40mm and in line with many of the other models in the current range it wears a little larger than might be expected – the smooth bezel puts it in the Explorer / Milgauss / DJ41 school of Rolex watches.

Compared to other 40mm Rolex sports models, the Air King 116900 is a bargain and this is a minty one – at a little over retail for a Full Set pretty much in exactly the same condition as it left the factory and still under Rolex warranty, this has to be a great option.  It’s a great looking piece and just a little different from the other sports Rolex watches that you’re going to see in the bar or at the office.
