Immediately recognizable by its black dial featuring large 3, 6 and 9 hour markers and a prominent minutes scale, the Air-King continues Rolex’s long association with aviation which dates back to the 1930s. More than a tribute, this robust and sporty watch, donned with a 40 mm Oystersteel case, symbolizes the fearlessness of aviation pioneers. It encourages each of us to release our adventurous spirit and soar.
The 1930s was a period when spectacular progress in aircraft performance constantly expanded humanity’s capacity to conquer the skies and led to the introduction of long-distance flights. Several pilots set records while wearing an Oyster. Others used a Rolex watch as an on-board chronometer.
The Air-King dial features a distinctive black dial with a combination of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours and a prominent minutes scale for navigational time readings. It bears the name “Air-King” since the watch’s launch in lettering that makes the model easily identifiable.
