When mankind put to the test one of its greatest inventions, aviation, Rolex wouldn't miss the chance to be part of it. Born in the golden years of aviation and with the main goal of joining prominent air explorers, the Air-King is part of the legacy from this Master watchmaker in professional wristwatches. In its origins, its main feature was a highly precise and powerful machinery able to withstand the most extreme conditions and (as could not be otherwise) an ultra-hermetic Oyster case, which made the Air-King become an icone in the long-distance aviation. With highly readable numerals to differentiate hours from minutes in navigation, its aesthetics have remained practically intact. Even in recent models, the inscription Air-King keeps the same style as in its predecessors, paying tribute to one of the milestones in the history of the brand. The unmistakable black dial and the contrast with its numerals and hands as well as the new-generation luminicent material, give this beautiful timepice readability and provide a bold and edgy style. And without leaving aside the elegance that the whole design grants to the one who wears it, the Rolex Air-King 116900 is nowadays a cherished and sought-after timepiece for fine watchmaking enthusiasts.
