Air King 116900 Gen、GM、BP & JVS Comprehensive Comparison
Hello everyone, this is Steve and I'm back.
Last time we did a comparative review of the Explorer generation, so this time let's take to the sky and see how the replica factories have done with the Air King.
I have to say, Rolex watch series names are quite elaborate, from the submarine in the sea, to the land explore,
to the sky of the King, as well as cut through the starry sky of the Lightning (the alias of Milgauss), which is not a famous name, accidentally, exposed the next comparison model
Currently the only factories producing the Air king 116900 are GM and BP, and considering that there are fewer factories involved in the comparison, we have included the JVS 126900 (JVS does not have 116900).
The dial digits are essentially the same, no better or worse.
JVS's green font Rolxe is very well controlled, the colour is very close to Gen, while GM and BP are a bit more vivid.
As for the shape details and fullness of the fonts, it is the same old rule that all details are equal to the naked eye, so we don't need to be overly concerned.
Luminous Filled View
The GM still has the old problem, the luminous fill of stick is too flat and has no grain effect, which doesn't affect the luminous effect too much, but the colour is a bit whiter than Gen in natural light, as is the case with BP and JVS.
Seconds hand view
For the second hand colour, GM and BP have a relatively small colour difference, JVS is beyond the acceptable range, colour is too light and lacks gloss.
Also we can notice that the Gen second hand colour is the same as the ROLEX font, GM and BP are better controlled and have almost no colour difference from each other.
JVS can not be compared directly with gen, but from the shape alone, there should be no problem, after all,
the case is also considered to be a replica of the main body of the parts, if the main body is not correct, then what is a replica of it.
Also on a side note, do you guys prefer cases with shoulder pads or without?
The edges of Gen's teeth are a similar sandblasted finish, GM and BP are slightly different but not visually obvious, whereas JVS has a very clear grain which is obviously a bit redundant.
Strap detail view
The details of the strap will not do too much comment, you can appraise their own (after all, it is also a high-definition macro view, with the "check" is obviously not suitable, "appraise" is not will look more advanced, haha)
Laser Marker and Luminous View
The factory's laser markers and luminescence have always been in the same shape, and there is nothing to compare, so I won't say more．
In terms of watch style alone, the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions of 126900 are luminous and appear sportier compared to the old 116900 version.
are covered with a protective film. In addition, as the JVS is 126900, its data is for reference only and is not to be used as a basis for comparison.
Well, today's post is here, thank you guys for watching. If there are any mistakes, please correct me. If there is anything else I overlooked, you can put it up, and I will try my best to complete it. Welcome to comment and exchange!
I will continue to bring you more detailed comparisons between replica watches and GEN’s. And it is also for you to choose the favorite models conveniently.
Illustration: Some photos deviate from the real object due to the light source. For details, please refer to the content. The size of the comparison picture is relatively large, you can download it and enlarge it for comparison.
There is no perfect replica, only the one you prefer.
