The new Rolex Air-King, which was re-launched at Baselworld 2016 after a two year break, finally got to the stores. We have paid a short visit to the biggest Rolex dealer in Turkey – Rhodium for a full review and brief information.
The importance of the Rolex Oyster, which joined the legendary flight over the Mount Everest in 1930s, is undeniable. The “Air” series started in 1930s which are considered as the golden years of aviation, moved on with different variants like Air-Lion, Air-Giant, Air-Tiger and finally Air-King. The only model managed to survive is the Air-King which was first launched in 1945.
The Rolex Air King, often nicknamed the “Warrior Watch,” was initially made for The British Royal Air Force with battle tough practicality and durability. While the Air King is very simple in style, its clean and classic look draw many admirers and buyers.
The new Air-King which featured a sportier-than-ever look was one of the most important updates of Rolex besides the Cerachrom bezel stainless steel Daytona.
