I've been seeing a lot of this Rolex model lately and knew I had to dive into it a little further to see why people are raving over it, as well as to find out if I would like anything about it because I have not taken to many looks at the 116900. I just can not get behind the aesthetic but comepletely understand why many people love the look of this watch. Bob's Watches says that it is an entry level watch but I am not sure about that anymore. I guess if you are at a certain level in life than this would serve to you but, this was never on my mind when purchasing my first luxury watch. Would you purchase this as your first luxury watch? I am also curious what are your favorite Air-King throughout the generations?
