The history of the Rolex Air-King is one of daring and courage. It is the longest continuously manufactured watches made by Rolex. Originally called the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, it was used during WWII by RAF fighter pilots who relied on the easy visibility of its large, 34 mm dial and clearly marked numerals while flying their dangerous missions. Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, so admired the brave British pilots who were wearing this watch that he decided to re-name it the Air-King in their honor. It was released in 1945, joining the Air-Lion, Air-Giant, and Air-Tiger, all created to commemorate the RAF pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain. The Air-King is the last of the “Air” watches still in production.
