Vintage Air-King references from the 50's and 60's are often characterized by a modest 34mm Oyster case and a three-link Oyster bracelet. The dial on this particular secondhand Rolex is beautifully aged and displays the time via silver indices and matching sword hands. The Rolex coronet sits proudly at the 12-hour marker, and the Air-King name is inscribed just above the central hands in a nostalgic font that is indicative of the era in which it was produced. As a member of the brand's Air Series, the Air-King was developed to honor the pilots of the British Royal Air Force and has since become synonymous with class and sophistication.
