More about Air King 116900 Black Dial SS

This is an 904L stainless steel Rolex Air King 116900. It has an integral solid-link 904L steel Oyster bracelet with a folding double deployant Oyster clasp, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The bracelet includes the Rolex Easylink rapid extension system. There is a polished solid screw-down case back and a screw-down Twinlock double waterproofing system on the winding crown, and it has stop-seconds for precise time setting. The 40mm diameter three-body case, downturned lugs, bracelet, and angled bezel are polished/brushed. The dial is black with luminous applied white gold Arabic numeral hour indices at the quarter hours, luminous painted Arabic numeral minute markers every five minutes, and a luminous triangle at the 12 o'clock position. It has luminous steel Rolex baton hands, and a green center sweep seconds hand. The dial has the glowing Chromalight display with long-lasting blue luminescence. The movement is fitted with an antimagnetic shield, a traditional feature of 1930's pilots’ watches, making it insensitive to 1000 gauss. It has a power reserve of 48-hours at full wind, and it's water resistant to 100 meters/330 feet. The dial bears the name Air-King in the same lettering that was designed specially for the model in the 1950s, and this watch has the Certified Official Superlative Chronometer (COSC) rating. The 13mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. The Rolex Air King 116900 has a mechanical automatic Rolex caliber 3131 movement that's rhodium-plated, with fausses cotes and oeil-de-perdrix embellishment. It's constructed with 31 jewels, a monometallic balance that's adjusted to temperature and 5 positions, and a shock absorber device. The straight-line lever escapement utilizes a paramagnetic escape wheel made from an electroformed nickel-phosphorus alloy. It has bidirectional self-winding via a perpetual rotor, and the oscillator has an antimagnetic Rolex blue Parachrom hairspring. It includes a Rolex overcoil regulator. It has a self-compensating free-sprung Breguet balance spring, Microstella regulating screws, and a hacking seconds mechanism for precision time setting. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 mph (4 Hz). This Rolex Air King 116900 was introduced at the Basel World exhibition in Switzerland in 2016.

Testimonials

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
