A homage to aviation. Discover our range of pre-owned Rolex Air-King watches and beat those long waiting lists. First released in 1945, the Rolex Air-King pays homage to the 1930s, a decade considered to be the golden age of aviation. With a solid-link Oyster bracelet, distinctive black dial and prominent minute scale, the Air-King blends unbeatable accuracy with timeless Rolex style – perfect for both navigational time readings and everyday elegance. Although a favourite amongst pilots, this classic Rolex has been seen everywhere from the sky to the red carpet.
With the introduction of long-distance flights and new aircraft technology, the 30s marked a period of innovation within the aviation industry. Building on the success of the Rolex Oyster, which launched in 1923, the Air-King continued Rolex’s rein as the pioneers of aviation timepieces. If the brand’s expertise was ever in doubt, it was solidified after Oyster watches accompanied the Houston Expedition in 1933, flying over Mount Everest for the first time at an altitude over 10,000 metres. Designed to both celebrate and continue this legacy, the Rolex Air-King encompasses the aeronautical heritage of the original Oyster, with modern Air-King styles still bearing the same lettering that was designed for the watch in the 1950s.
