The Rolex Air-King 126900 is a wristwatch by Rolex.

This “New Air-King” was presented on the Watches & Wonders 2022. It is equipped with the calibre Rolex 3230, which was released in 2020 and was fitted on this model from 2022.

Calibre 3230 (based on the Rolex 3235) incorporates the patented Chronergy escapement, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic fields. The movement is fitted with an optimized blue Parachrom hairspring, manufactured by Rolex in a paramagnetic alloy that makes it up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. The blue Parachrom hairspring is equipped with a Rolex overcoil, ensuring the calibre’s regularity in any position. The oscillator is fitted on the Rolex-designed, patented high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, increasing the movement’s shock resistance.
