£3,200.00

 

This is a stunning Rolex Air King Precision from 1972. The Air King name has an unprecedented historical value in the Rolex Oyster Perpetual range, this arose from the proprietor of Rolex Hans Wildorf wanting to honour the British Pilots of WW2 and so introduced the Airline of Watches like the Air-Tiger, Air-Lion, Air-Giant and Air-King. This line of Rolex watches remained in production until the early sixties with only the Air-King surviving to present day. The watch has been fully serviced by our in-house watch technician and comes with a full 12 months written warranty.
