Rolex Vintage Air King

Code: 21473S
Manufacturer Code: 5500

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.

'What a pleasure to do business with this company, either buying or selling. I don't usually fill out reviews but I do feel this company deserves a favourable one. Some years ago I purchased a Jaeger La Coutre from them and was treated very well. Yesterday, having made an appointment, I took my four Patek Phillipe watches that I had collected over the years to sell. Not only was I greeted promptly and courteously, but the whole matter was conducted professionally and pleasantly. A price sarisfactory to both of us was speedily agreed, the paperwork filled out fully and transparently, the bank transfer went through without a hitch. I wish all my sales of luxury pre-owned goods went off so satisfactorily. May I recommend this company and its members.'
