Air-King / Rolex


The Air-King is one of the most well-known (and widely missed) Rolex models. Initially released in 1945 (along with the Datejust), this model (like every Rolex model) has seen several modifications over the decades, and this year is no different.

The new Air-King comes in a 40mm 904L stainless-steel Oyster case. The shiny black dial features the 3-6-9 hour configuration (à la the Explorer) and the minute indication on the fives.

And the best part? The dial bears the name Air-King in the same script as the ones from the 1950s. Additionally, this watch is powered by the automatic calibre 3131 movement and is also a certified superlative chronometer. At CHF 5,900, this is considered the entry level Rolex — via Hodinkee
