More about Rolex 116900 Air King Black Dial SS

This is a 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.

This Rolex Air King, 116900, was introduced at the Basel World exhibition in Switzerland in 2016.
