We were pleasantly surprised when Rolex launched the new Air-King 116900 in Basel in 2016. It may not be the most popular watch, but it’s special enough. This replica Swiss watch was decidedly unpredictable. Next, let’s together find the meaning in the Rolex Air-King replica 116900.
Rolex release the Air-King in 1945 but officially went out of production in 2014. Just 2 years later Rolex gave us a big surprise by releasing a new Air-King 116900 in 2016. From the beginning to the present, each of Air King watches lived in entry level territory. The entirely new Rolex Air-King 116900 is maybe one of the most confusing modern Rolex fake watches.
Rolex increased the Air King‘s case diameter from 34mm to 40mm. When you see this new Air King case, you’ll definitely think of the Milgauss case. That’s right, Rolex Air King replica 116900 and Milgauss use the same case. This also means that the new Swiss replica Air-King is also protected against magnetic fields. The case and bracelet with polished center link are made of the 904L stainless steel.
There are two scales in this perfect replica watch. The first scale is large Arabic numerals at three, six and nine represent the hours. And the second scale is the smaller Arabic numbers in-between indicate a minute scale in increments of five. At 12 o’clock sits a large classic triangle. The odd thing of this watch is the yellow crown and the green branding. At 6 o’clock, the text continues with the same “Air-King” script first seen on the Ref.5500.
Rolex Caliber 3131
Rolex Air King replica 116900 uses the caliber 3131 movement, which is same as Milgauss. The Parachrom balance spring, nickel phosphorus lever and escape wheel would confer even better resistance for this watch.
Regarding the strange design in this watch, I deeply admire it. For those who doesn’t like a smaller 34mm case, they are very welcoming of the 40MM. So this 2016 Rolex Air King replica watch is a welcome addition.
