Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King - Ref: 116900 - 2018 with Box and Papers

This Watch Is Now Sold
A Rolex Perpetual Air-King Oystersteel Wrist Watch Bought New 2018. Model Reference: 116900. 

The Oyster Air-King was made as a tribute to the pioneers of flight and epitomises the brand’s privileged ties with adventure and the world of aviation during its golden age in the 1930s, where spectacular progress was made in the field.

The model features an eye-catching black dial with a combination of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals to mark the hours and a prominent minute scale for navigational time readings. The name ‘Air-King’ is featured at the bottom of the dial in the same original retro-style font designed by Rolex, specifically for the original 1950’s model. 

The watch has an Oystersteel bracelet with Oysterlock folding clasp, preventing accidental opening. Oystersteel is a high-tech material specially developed by Rolex, that can boast both an exceptional finish and the highest possible resistance to corrosion. 

It also features an Easylink comfort extension link - an ingenious system, exclusive to Rolex, that allows the bracelet length to be easily adjusted by approximately 5mm by the wearer, to provide additional comfort. 

The Air-King is powered by calibre 3131, a self-winding mechanical movement also used in the Milgauss models, designed and made by Rolex. As with all Rolex Perpetual movements, this is a 'Certified Swiss Chronometer', an accolade awarded only to watches with the highest degree of accuracy that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute tests. 

This stunning, precise and robust timepiece combines the nostalgia of the heyday of the aviation industry with innovative modern features and is waterproof to 100 metres, with a power reserve of 48 hours. 

What’s on offer:

This watch was purchased new in December 2018 in the UK, and is sold with its original box, papers and swing tags - all with matching serial numbers. 

This piece has been very carefully and sparingly worn, with only a few micro marks present that can easily be polished out by our watchmaker if you prefer it? We prefer to leave that choice to you as most of our clients prefer there watches as original as possible!
