Rolex watches have long been a popular choice among professional pilots, thanks to the addition of a sturdy Oyster case and a reliable perpetual movement. During the midst of World War II, Rolex released the Air Series of watches, including the Air-King. Its sophisticated style mirrors that of traditional Rolex dress watches, creating a timepiece that is prepared to venture high above the clouds or accompany you to a day at the office. The 34mm Oyster case is outfitted with a waterproof screw-down crown to protect the intricate movement within from high altitudes as well as depths of up to 100 meters. The vintage reference that is offered here today is a rare find with the addition of a two-tone Jubilee bracelet and matching champagne dial with yellow gold indices and sweeping hands.
