Rolex – Oyster Perpetual Air-King
Introducing the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King
Aviation has significantly progressed since the 30s and Rolex has been there at every step. The Oyster Perpetual Air-King model has taken part in countless airborne expeditions without ever failing, even extreme weather conditions. Its sturdy build and reliability have been applauded by the pilots fortunate enough to wear it on their wrists.
2016’s iconic Oyster Perpetual Air-King has a deep satin-finish black dial brought to life by a flash of green on the central seconds hand and logo. The Arabic hour numerals blend white decals and white gold applied markers (3, 6, 9 and 12). Two luminescent white gold hands in the centre track the hours and minutes.
The time functions are brought to life by the COSC-certified self-winding 3131 calibre made by Rolex. The movement fuels a 48-hour power reserve from inside the 40mm steel case.
Price: 5,900 CHF
