The movement inside the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King is the 3131 internal movement, which operates at 28,800 vph (4Hz) and has a 48-hour power reserve. As with all Rolex watches, the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King is tested by the COSC and then subjected to an internal certification test by Rolex, the highest level of astronomical clock certification by Rolex. The latter new test means that the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King will be tested to run between -2 / + 2 seconds per day. Considering its entry-level price (for a Rolex), you can expect to get a properly reliable and accurate mechanical watch.


The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King is gone – have you noticed? We’re certain that many of you at least made it to BaselWorld last year when you replaced your 2015 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King Watches …… But if you missed its brief absence, don’t worry, because the Rolex Oyster Perpetual King of Air will be returning to BaselWorld. 2016, and in some interesting ways. While it may not have the same sex appeal or luxury vibe as the new Rolex Daytona or Rolex Datejust 41, it’s actually even more of a surprise for some of us, as it’s not something we expect to see from a Rolex.
For one thing, Rolex usually only changes and updates when it really needs to – and the Rolex Oyster Perpetual is no exception. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual has probably been the subject of more frequent complaints that the 34mm wide case version it offers is “not modern enough”. Well, instead of just releasing a “large” model, Rolex ditched the old one and two years later released the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual, which solved the problem and introduced one of the more entry-level models in the Rolex line – the popular 40mm wide case.


Citing the watch’s return to its aeronautical roots, Rolex is looking to read this larger new dial clearly. The first impression we get from the new 2016 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King is that its design has become so bold that the previous version was downsized and very conservative. Between the Rolex Explorer I and the Rolex Milgauss is a better fit for this new model.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King was reintroduced only in a version with a black dial. Although the case is designed to be 40mm wide, it’s actually the same as the Rolex Milgauss, but the dial is essentially the same as the 3-6-9 index that the Rolex Explorer I had before Rolex updated it this year. It’s an interesting mix, to be sure.
One truly unusual design decision made by Rolex, however, was that it resulted in a mix of hour and minute hands on the same scale. Rolex prides itself on a long history of tried and true tool watch design, which makes it the deepest and highest position on our planet. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King with this dial design seems a bit out of place in this collection of tool watches.
