Released in 1945, the World War II era Rolex Air-King was designed as both a tribute to Britain's courageous RAF pilots, and also for them to use in place of the inferior watches they were issued. As such, the Air-King holds its place as an original pilot's watch, and a durable yet dressy watch ready for any adventure.
A perennial favorite with pilots, the timepiece has been embraced by institutions of the industry as well; for example, Pan Am gave Air-Kings as pilots' retirement gifts. While the look of the Air-King remains true to the original, it has been upgraded with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a new caliber 3000 movement, and a greatly improved bracelet.
The elegance of function and the extraordinary design of the Rolex Oyster never goes out of style. Perfectly comfortable in the rigorous challenges of everyday life, the Air-King is both dressy and sporty. It has the look of the archetypical wristwatch, and the Oyster is the one most people think of when they think of Rolex. With 70 years of almost unchanged style, this is one timepiece that can truly be a lifetime watch, a legacy, a definer of personal style, and an heirloom.
