A HOMAGE TO AVIATION
The Oyster Perpetual Air-King perpetuates the aeronautical heritage of the original Rolex Oyster. The new Air-King features a 40 mm case in 904L steel with a magnetic shield. It has a distinctive black dial with a combination of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours and a prominent minutes scale or navigational time readings. The dial bears the name Air-King in the same lettering that was designed specially for the model in the 1950s as well as a green and yellow Rolex logo – its first appearance on a dial. The seconds hand is green, the emblematic colour of the brand.
