    We are proud to present this stunning Vintage Rolex Air King 5700 watch 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 a smooth polished bezel and a twin-lock screw-down crown for basic water resistance up to 100M. The dial is an original sunburst silver colour with applied baton hour markers, topped with luminous dots (no longer luminous) and fitted with steel sword-shaped hands. Presented on a stainless steel Oyster link bracelet with a folding clasp.

    Originally purchased in circa 1978 and in fine condition for its age with a few small blemishes, the Air-King Date comes with previous Rolex service paperwork dated 1989 and is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.
