Rolex Airking Ref. 116900 2016
This is the classic Airking and a wonderful entry model to get into the Rolex sports collection. The design of the Air King, developed with ease of visibility for pilots, makes it a classic cradle-to-grave watch – one that will look after itself for just about every situation you can expect to encounter through life. A screw-down crown for water resistancy, a very-wearable 40mm case size and all the reliability and quality from Rolex that you would expect. These models have been increasing in value in-line with all the Rolex Sports models and our 2016 example is a wonderful opportunity to join the select Rolex club – and priced sensibly.
