About the Rolex Airking
In 2016 Rolex first released the Oyster Perpetual Air-King, a classy timepiece that encompasses the aeronautical heritage of the original Rolex Oyster watch. The newer Air-King has a 40 mm case in 904L steel and features a distinctive black dial with large 3, 6, and 9 numerals marking the hours and a minute scale for most navigational readings of time. The dial proudly shows the name "Air-King" in the exact same lettering that was originally designed for its predecessor model in the 1950s. All Air-King watches have the Superlative Chronometer certification which was redefined by Rolex in 2015 to ensure singular quality performance. The Rolex Air-King pays homage to the rich history Rolex has always had with aviation and pilots from all over the world. The watch embodies the spirit of aviation with a classy yet functional style.
