Rolex watches are constantly evolving and each one is quite reliable. Every time Rolex releases a new watch, it’s a pleasant surprise. Today’s protagonist is definitely very interesting. It is the Rolex Air-King 116900, a watch that was completely unexpected. When we first saw it in 2016, we weren’t even sure which collection it belonged to. Because the only connection between it and the Air-Kings of yesteryear was the name. So the Rolex Air-King 116900 super clone is also a controversial Rolex watch.
A Brief History Of The Rolex Air-king
During World War II, Rolex created many Air watches. The RAF pilots of the country preferred the 34mm Air-King watches of the time and the simple dials they had. So Rolex kept the Air-King. In 1945, Rolex officially launched the Air-King collection. However, the Rolex Air-King super clone watches did not receive long term recognition until 1957. In the meantime, the Rolex Air-King 5500 watches laid the aesthetic foundation for the modern Air-King aesthetic. The Ref. 5500 continued to be produced for a total of 32 years.
Rolex decided to stop producing Air-King watches in 2014, for reasons we can’t guess. While people are still looking for the reason why the Air-King was discontinued, it’s back. After two years of disappearance, the appearance of the fake Rolex Air-King 116900 announced the return of the Air-King collection. Within the Rolex family, the Rolex Air-King 116900 is still an entry-level Rolex fake watch. Let’s take a deeper look at this Rolex Air-King replica Swiss watch with a lot of new ideas.
There are a total of five lines of text in the dial. The “Air-King” at the six o’clock position still retains the old-style font, with the Rolex logo and text at the twelve o’clock position. But we see the logo in yellow and the “Rolex” in green, and this is the first time Rolex has used two colors in an imitation watch to show them off. The active second hand echoes the color of the Rolex text, which is also green.
The appearance of the Mercedes hour hand is no surprise, as it is used in most Rolex sports watches. But the 3-6-9 dial does come as a surprise, being the same as the dial on the Rolex Explorer I replica watches. And the three Arabic numerals 3, 6 and 9 are also made of stainless steel and have been polished as well.
Next up is the most controversial Arabic minute indicator. Because many people think that these big white numbers clutter the dial. In 2014, Rolex showed us two gauges in order to support the Bloodhound supersonic car. Then you notice how similar the dials on the super clone Rolex Air-King 116900 are to these two gauges. In addition to the same color scheme, they also have the same indicated minute markers. Ultimately, we have to admit that the readability of the Air-King 116900 comes to mind as high. With just a glance, we can get the time from within this Rolex dial.
That’s why I say that the Rolex Air-King 116900 copy watch marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Air-King collection and is completely different from the previous 50 years of Air-King watches.
The Rolex Air-King 116900 has a modern case size of 40mm. Most Rolex sports watches are this size. But the previous Rolex Air-King AAA replica watches have kept the 34mm case width. The new case with a screw-down Twinlock crown guarantees that this perfect fake Rolex watch also has a water resistance of 100M. The stainless steel case is also made from the same Faraday cage as the Milgauss case. This also means that the best Air-King replica 116900 also has an anti-magnetic capability of 1000 gauss. The curved lugs and the impeccable Oyster strap provide the comfortable fit that you would expect.
Not only does the AAA Rolex Air-King 116900 have the same case as the Milgauss, it also houses the same movement. We also found the NO.3131 movement inside the Rolex Air-King 116900 1:1 watches. This Rolex in-house movement is also COSC certified, so there is no need to doubt its accuracy and reliability. In addition, the NO.3131 movement has a power reserve value of 48 hours. Most importantly, this movement also has an anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring.
Overall, the stainless steel sports watch Rolex Air-King 116900 is an interesting watch. The unusual dial layout and color scheme is what makes it stand out from the rest of the Rolex watches. If you also like this excellent replica Rolex Air-King 116900, which is completely different from the previous Air-King watches, you can buy it from Hont Watches.
