In 2016, Rolex unveiled a brand new take on the classic Air-King that retained the simplistic aesthetic of the inaugural model while bringing a contemporary design to the table. That watch was the ref. 116900 and its feature set is the perfect balance between sport and dress. The case maintains a classic tool watch diameter of 40mm and also features an engraved rehaut, a smooth, high-polish bezel, and a flat-link Oyster bracelet closed by an Oysterclasp. The most notable feature of this modern Air-King is the dial, which mirrors cockpit instruments via luminous 5-minute hour markers, silver 3/6/9 Arabic markers, bright green accents, and luminous hands.
