Highlights

The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd presents this stunning Rolex Air King 5700 for sale.

The Air King was created by Hans Wilsdorf to honour the World War II pilots and has been in production for over 70 years. Pilots and Rolex enthusiasts have adopted the Air King and companies like Pan-Am gave them as retirement gifts to their pilots. Interestingly the Air-King was never made with a date feature until 1958, so it took 13 years for that to happen and even then the Date models were made in far fewer numbers than their non-date counterparts making them “rare”.

This version, the reference 5700 was the first version of the Air King collection to feature a date window at 3 o’clock and was fitted with the calibre 1535 movement. This watch is set in the original 34mm steel round Oyster case with the twin-lock screw-down crown for basic water resistance up to 100M. The dial is an original matt black colour (rarer to see a black dial on this model, especially one that has not been re-painted) with applied baton hour markers, topped with luminous dots and fitted with steel sword-shaped hands. Presented on a stainless steel Oyster link bracelet with a folding clasp.

Originally purchased in December 1971 and in fine condition for its age with little to no signs of blemishes, the watch comes supplied with a genuine Rolex service pouch and its original guarantee booklet. Impressively the watch also comes with an impressive service history and paperwork from 1992, 1996, 1998 and Rolex in 2007 showing that this watch has been very well cared for, hence the overall quality of the condition for a watch that is nearly 50 years old.

Sold my Patek watch to John. A bit apprehensive before arriving at the shop, but upon arrival my wife and I were made very welcome. From the start I could tell that John was a true professional and passionate about watches. We agreed a price and I received full payment by bank transfer the same day. I am happy to recommend this company if you have a high end watch to sell.
