Here's what I think. Both watchs same size ( 34mm ). Of course the Date has a date. Normaly Airking does not , although I have seen one that did. The biggest and most important difference is the Date has a cirtified movement while the Airking does not. Also depending on the year the newer Dates have saphire cristles but I'm not sure about the Airkings.
If any of my facts are wrong I hope someone will correct my post.
I have never seen an AK with a date, but I have not researched them that much. I believe the movements are different as well. The AK has the 3130, while the date has the 3135. All current Rolexes have sapphire crystals.
