For decades the Rolex Air-King cheap fake watches were the most affordable Rolex Oyster, until it was discontinued two years ago. But now the Air-King is back with a distinctly unorthodox dial featuring oversized hour and minute indices as the ref. 116900.
Originating in the early 1950s as a watch evolved from the watches Rolex made for aviators in the 1930s, the Air-King was the the most affordably priced, self-winding Rolex Oyster wristwatch. Smaller than the Datejust and lacking a date function, the Air-King nonetheless carried the familiar Rolex look.
The new Air-King (ref. 116900), on the other hand, bears a strikingly novel look.The black dial features applied white gold hour numerals at the quarters with printed white five-minute markings – a look that is a blend of the Explorer and vintage “Compteur” stopwatches.
And to make it even more unusual, both “Rolex” and the seconds hand are in green, the company’s corporate colour, while the coronet logo is in yellow.
The stainless steel case Rolex replica watches are 40 mm in diameter, slightly larger than the Explorer. And the movement inside is the calibre 3131, self-winding with a 48 hour power reserve.
The Air-King is priced at SFr5900, only marginally more than the SFr5400 of the Oyster Perpetual 39, the identically sized and most affordable men’s Rolex Oyster.
Three years ago Audemars Piguet cheap fake watches gave its bestselling sports chronograph a major overhaul with an in-house movement as well as ceramic buttons and crown. Now a quartet of new models unveiled at SIHH 2017 joins the second generation Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph line-up, including a heavyweight version with a platinum case and bracelet.
The basic models are in stainless steel, starting with the blue on black (ref. 26470ST.OO.A028CR.01). This has a black dial with dark blue chronograph registers, matched with a dark blue chapter ring and alligator strap.
The other steel model has a brown dial (ref. 26470ST.OO.A820CR.01) fitted with pink gold hands.
Then there’s the 18k yellow gold Audemars Piguet fake watches that has a blue dial and gilt sub-dials (ref. 26470BA.OO.1000BA.01) that’s anything but subtle. This is delivered on a matching 18k gold bracelet, but accompanied by a spare alligator strap and 18k gold pin buckle.
The top quality of the line version is the all-platinum (ref. 26470PT.OO.1000PT.01) that marks the return of the model to the catalogue after a hiatus of several years. Impractically but impressively heavy – it tips the scales at over a pound or half a kilo – the platinum Offshore is a limited edition of 50 pieces with a pale grey dial and black sub-dials. Like the yellow gold model, it’s accompanied by a spare alligator strap with a platinum pin buckle.
All four models share the same specs, with a 42mm case featuring a sapphire case back that reveals the calibre 3126/3840 inside.
