Rolex Part V – I Love My Rolex Air King 116900 BaselWorld 2017

My Baselworld 2017 Rolex Air King

For Baselworld 2017, Rolex introduced a new Air King, i.e. 116900; and I was lucky to secure one on 2nd January 2017. I love this watch, no need to adjust the date, hahaha.

Today this particular model is pretty easy to purchase off the display showcases at many Rolex Authorised Dealers.

The Air-King dial features a distinctive black dial with a combination of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours and a prominent minute scale for navigational time readings. It bears the name Air-King in the same lettering that was designed specially for the model in the 1950s.

Unlike previous Air King models, the BaselWorld 2017 Air King 116900 movement comes with a magnetic shield to protect the movement!
