Highlights

The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd invites you to own a piece of history with this Rolex Vintage Air King.

Released in the midst of World War II, the Rolex Air-King is the only remaining watch in production from the original range of "Air" watches and was made with fighter pilots in mind. Over the years, pilots have adopted the Air-King with companies, like Pan Am giving them as gifts to retired pilots. The Air-King look is well known and has become a highly prized collector’s piece.

With classic styling, the watch features a 34mm stainless steel case, sunburst silver dial with linen texture, baton hour markers and is fitted with a brown leather strap and automatic movement.

Originally purchased in 1972 and in fine condition for its age, the watch comes supplied with a SWC box and SWC authenticity card.

I purchased two Rolex watches with the intention of investment: (A 1978 1680 and a 1979 Air King 5700). I knew very little about the Rolex watch, and spent some time deliberating and researching as to what to buy. Tim and Jonathan were both very helpful over separate phone calls, when assurance and advice was needed to make sure I was making the right choice and decision. On my visit, Jonathan was highly professional, down-to-earth and an expert in his field. I came away very happy for the experience at the Swiss Watch Co., and am now the owner of two fantastic watches.
