If the newer Air-King ref. 116900 looks familiar, that’s because the new, sportier dial somewhat resembles the cockpit controls developed by Rolex for the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car that is famously powered with a turbojet engine. The modern Air-King also notably utilizes a larger 40mm Oyster case that is more in-line with a sports watch than a dress watch. The example that is presented here today features very desirable Chromalight luminous plots on the dial, a resilient 904L Oystersteel finish, a chronometer-rated calibre 3131 self-winding movement, and a new-style case and bracelet with an engraved inner reflector ring and a 5mm Easylink Oysterclasp. This is your chance to add the newest variation of the iconic Air-King pilot’s watch to your collection at a competitive price.
