The Rolex Air-King is a member of Rolex's series of "Air" watches including the Air-Lion, Air-Tiger, and Air-Giant. As its name would suggest, the Air-King was designed as a pilots watch and was inspired by the courageous feats of the British Royal Airforce during the 1930's. The 36mm Oyster case is designed to withstand high altitudes as well as depths of up to 330 feet, making this timepiece an ideal companion for pilots. The stainless steel case is topped with a smooth bezel and a champagne dial set with index hour markers and sweeping hands. The name "Air-King" is written across the dial in a sophisticated font, adding to its classic design. A sturdy Oyster bracelet made of flat stainless steel links and a Fliplock clasp accompanies the case and provides a secure hold whether you're soaring high above the clouds or playing a round of golf.
*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....
