Throughout our meeting Rolex in Basel last March, we got to see a range of new Rolex watches. Sure, we get to see brand new Rolex watches each calendar year, yet this year that the Geneva Giant had some pretty trendy watches for us to view. The new Rolex air king 14000m dimensions replica watches Explorer at 39mm is something high on my wishlist, as is your new Rolex Daytona 116500, but that one requires serious saving-up plus a long breath seeing its waiting list (yes, too for us watch journalists).
A watch that gently left the stage a couple of years ago, was that the Rolex Air-King. This view, frequently considered to be as an entry Rolex watch, had its own following and a lengthy history in the Rolex series. The Air-King version name was the final among many’Air’-versions (Air Lion, Air Tiger and Air Giant from the 1930’s and 1940’s) and introduced in 1945. The Rolex Air-King reference that’s possibly best known is that the 5500, which was in production for a very long moment.
A number of Rolex Air-King versions also had the normal Rolex air king explorer dial imitation watches Explorer dial, with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The size of the Rolex Air-King nevertheless, was always 34mm. A little version of this Rolex Explorer, you can say. Especially the 34mm Air-King with a black dial, was often mistaken for an Explorer in the space. It wasn’t of course. Upon closer inspection you would observe several differences. The Explorer, like other Rolex watches since the Submariner, GMT-Master etc, had its model name situated at 6 o’clock on the dial. The Air-King had its version name located below the Rolex logo at 12 o’clock.
Rolex Air-King Dial
The dial of the new Rolex Air-King 116900 is exactly what confused a lot of folks, including me. Not merely did Rolex air king yupoo replica watch move the Air-King emblem to the lower portion of the dial (the first Air-King at 1945 also had it 6 o’clock), but they also included lots of Arabic numerals into the dial. Not only the typical’Explorer’ lay-out with Arabic 3, 6 and 9’clock markers are on there, the remaining hour markers go from’5′ to’55’. This remarkable dial lay-out relies on a set of cockpit instruments that Rolex created in 2006 for a special project (Bloodhound SSC project). An engineering project to get a superb sonic car to achieve a speed of 1000mp/h on property. More are available here. Among the board tools had a similar lay-out.
The new Rolex Air-King 116900 is not any different of course, it’s fitted with Rolex air king explorer 5500 copy caliber 3131. This movement is also utilized at the Rolex Milgauss and also complies to the new standard of Rolex, performing over -2/+2 minutes of deviation every day. Well over the chronometer need of -4/+6 moments a day. Rolex gives a 5-year guarantee with this functionality and will adjust the watch free of cost as it does not work between -2/+2 moments every day. The grade 3131 motion includes a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, ensuring that magnetic fields have very little influence on its performance.
Besides an interesting dial, great background and attractive case diameter, this 40mm Rolex air king malaysia replica watches Air-King 116900 has a record price of $5650,-. That is somewhat cheaper than its 39mm cousin, the Rolex Explorer 214270 (we spoke about it ) using a list price of $5900,-. For that money, you’ll get a Rolex watch which matches all present Rolex standards (precision, warranty, etc.) and can be — in my opinion — even much more wearable than its 34mm Air-King predecessors
