The Rolex Air-King is rich in history. Introduced in 1945 as part of the "Air Series" watches, the Air-King will forever symbolize the bravery of the RAF pilots during the Battle of Britain. Designed by Hans Wilsdorf as a reward for these heroic pilots, the Air-King is equipped with a stainless steel 34mm Oyster case with an acrylic crystal and a waterproof screw-down crown and is capable of withstanding high altitudes as well as depths of up to 330 feet. An exterior this tough is necessary to protect the perpetual movement within the case for a notoriously accurate reading. This vintage timepiece also utilizes stainless steel on the Oyster bracelet and Fliplock clasp, ensuring a secure hold. A striking black dial offers a sharp contrast and is topped with silver index hour markers, sweeping hands with lume plots, and the name "Air-King" inscribed just above the hands.

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....
