1970s Rolex Air King gentleman's wristwatch
A Rolex Air King gentlemans wristwatch with silver sunburst dial bearing the Air-king name, baton hour markers with luminous pips and is powered by an automatic movement. Presented in a later Rolex box.
The Air King was created by Hans Wilsdorf to honour the World War II pilots and has been in production for over 70 years. Pilots and Rolex enthusiasts have adopted the Air King and companies like Pan-Am gave them as retirement gifts to their pilots.
