Rolex AirKing

Aug 29, 2020,16:33 PM

Whilst we are all getting excited about the new sub release, I am having a great time with my AirKing this evening smile

Hopefully this won’t be discontinued on 1 Sep so more collectors can consider getting this quirky and “unRolex” Rolex. To be honest I wasn’t a fan initially but many of you here convinced me with your pics over the years smile

Nice picture of a nice watch!

Thanks for this post Robin. I have been on the fence about this particular Rolex for quite some time. I will likely be getting one before the end of this year. I am also looking at the newer version of the Rolex Explorer, but your Air King has got me thin... 

Lol one each will be so cool !

I considered both too but I feel the AirKing is more special

AD allocation won’t be filled for the rest of the year.

I think it’s discontinued.

Manager in AD informed me first hand.

 By: jonrus : August 30th, 2020-04:54
Every US AD has a list of allocation for the year. These are the allotted models that they cannot order. They can use this guide in dealing with the customers throughout the year. AD still has one airking unfulfilled on the list, but was told that it’s no... 

Thanks for sharing [nt]

For my part, I was on lists and so afraid they would stop it so I just recalled my preferred AD .. but I am happy because I have just been certain that I will be able to take delivery of a 116900 next week ... The ideal would be that Rolex launch a new mo...

That is nice too ! [nt]

Such a great timepiece...enjoy!

Mine gets more than it's fair share of wrist time

Thank you mate ! :) [nt]

Their finest case in my opinion

 By: Sportster : September 14th, 2020-21:24
Actually one of the finest watch cases that I have ever worn. I’m wearing my sub right now and there is no contest. The milgauss/airking case sits perfectly weighted in the wrist and looks amazing from every angle.

My only fear about Rolex dropping the Milgauss and Airking is that we would lose this case from the Rolex catalog completely

 By: Sportster : September 15th, 2020-09:35
But based on where they seem to be heading with their movement technologies (ie new sub and new OP), it suggests that any truly antimagnetic models will deploy a faraday cage which will therefore use this case. Can you tell that I love this watch case?

Enjoy your AirKing :) [nt]
