The Rolex Air-King has one of the most interesting histories of all the brand's watches. Released during World War II, it was only one of multiple "Air" models which were designed as gifts for British RAF pilots who had fought in the Battle of Britain. Watches like the Air-Lion, Air-Giant, and Air-Tiger were all discontinued, but the Air-King has prevailed over time. This watch has stunning silver dial with dazzling silver hour markers. While it is manufactured in all stainless steel, this watch may not be flashy, but it is extremely durable and still exudes all the sophistication associated with Rolex. The stainless steel Oyster bracelet is secured with a Fliplock clasp and has a brushed satin finish. While originally designed for those in the air, the watch's waterproof screw-down crown makes it suitable for adventures of all types!
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. While not the least expensive option, Bob's service has been great. And, having had the watch assessed by a certified Rolex dealer in NY, I was assured not only was it in extraordinarily good condition cosmetically, the work done on the internal mechanics was excellent. I would recommend Bob's highly.
very accurate description but I assumed it would be in a Rolex box. Excellent service
Affordable. Great credit terms. Awesome watch.
A outstanding piece. Under rated by there scale. If this watch would have came with the original box it could be sold for new old Stock
Bob’s Watches is truly an amazing company. This was my first Pre-Owned watch purchase and it was an amazing experience. I had a few questions and they were answered immediately and unlike many other online dealers they actually have the watches in inventory. Placed my order at 4pm and it was at my door at 10:30am the next morning on the other side of the country. The pricing and experience are truly exceptional!!
As promised. Was able to replace lost/stolen Long beloved watch with close approximation.
Love the simplistic, lux, classic, and timeless look to the Airking.
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
