Rolex launched the new Oyster Perpetual Air-King in 2022 – Rolex Air King 126900. The newly designed case is equipped with crown shoulder guards on both sides of the crown, which is consistent with other professional watches of the brand. The proportions of the Oyster strap have also been readjusted, and the middle link has been widened to make it more eye-catching. The strap is equipped with an Oyster safety clasp, which is the first watch in the series to use this clasp. The display of the watch has also been completely new, with the number “0” marked before the “5” minute scale, which is more symmetrical and beautiful. Therefore, new models are marked with two digits for 5-minute intervals. Buy Rolex Air King replica watches.
Luminous display ensures clear and easy to read in dark environments. The hands and the triangular hour marker at 12 o’clock are coated or filled with a new type of luminous material, which can continuously emit strong light. The numerals 3, 6, and 9, which used to be entirely made of 18K white gold, are now also using this innovative material unique to Rolex, which is clearly legible even in dark environments.
Guaranteed water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet), the 40mm Oyster case of the Rolex Air King 126900 is a paragon of robustness and reliability. The middle case is made of a solid piece of Oystersteel, which is difficult to corrode. Rolex watchmakers tighten the finely grooved bottom cover with brand-specific special tools to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement.
The double-buckle winding crown has a double waterproof system and is firmly screwed to the case. Crown shoulders are integrated into the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror surface is made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which is not easy to scratch. The waterproof Oyster case of the watch provides the best protection for the movement.
Since its launch in 1958, the dial of the Rolex Air King has been engraved with the words “Air-King”, making this watch easily recognizable. Since 2016, Air King has been equipped with a black dial full of personality, with large Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, and the minute scale is more prominent, so that the time can be clearly read when sailing. The green second hand subtly echoes the brand’s logo color.
