The Rolex Air-King epitomizes the brand’s partnership with pilots and the British Royal Air Force during the Golden Age of aviation in the 1930s. The design pays tribute to the pioneers of flight and Rolex’s role in the history of aviation. The Air-King design builds on the original Rolex Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch created in 1923. 

The Rolex Air-King 116900 comes with a distinctive black dial featuring Arabic numerals with an enlarged 3, 6, and 9 to mark the hours. The oversize indices and a prominent minute scale allow for simpler navigational timekeeping. The sweeping green second hand and the smooth bezel give the watch a sportier look than many other Rolex models. Still, the sleek styling ensures the timepiece remains a sophisticated addition to your wardrobe. 

The 31 jewel Caliber 3131 automatic movement is crafted in-house and features anti-magnetic technology to prevent interference with the timekeeping mechanism during flight. The caliber has a power reserve rating of approximately 48 hours and is chronometer-certified with a precision rating of -2/+2 seconds per day.

The Twinlock crown and screw-down case lend the watch water resistance up to 328 ft., while the three-piece Oyster link bracelet with Rolex’s standard Oysterclasp keeps the watch firmly in place. The stainless steel case and bracelet are coated with Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), providing the timepiece with a durable exterior to match its sporty design. The bracelet is compatible with the Easylink extension, allowing you to quickly resize the watch for the perfect fit.
