The Rolex Air King was developed by Hans Wilsdorf in 1945 and was inspired by the popularity of the Oyster Perpetual among the pilots of the British Royal Airforce. Designed with them in mind, the Air King is equipped with a 34mm Oyster case that can withstand depths of up to 330 feet as well as higher altitudes. The case is constructed out of durable stainless steel and is accompanied by a flat link Oyster bracelet and Fliplock clasp for a secure and comfortable fit, whether you're flying high above the clouds or heading into a day at the office. The all-steel design is accompanied by a handsome silver dial set with matching index hour markers and sweeping hands. Beautiful simplicity at its finest, the Air King is a remarkable addition to any Rolex collection.

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....
