Honoring the explorers of the skies, the Oyster Perpetual Air-King celebrates the pioneers of aviation and empowers them to take command of their own destiny.
Oyster perpetual air-king: the limit is the sky
The Air-King line of watches represents the privileged relationship between Rolex and aviation during its heyday in the 1930s. The model pays tribute to the pilots of the time and their heroic stories. The 1930s were a period of spectacular advances in aircraft performance, which continuously expanded human capabilities to conquer the skies, and led to the advent of long-haul flights. Some pilots have set records while wearing Oyster watches. Others use Rolex watches as a means of determining time when flying, such as in 1934, Owen Cathcart-Jones and Ken Waller made a return flight from London to Melbourne (Australia) in record time with dual-engine De Havilland Comet.
The name “Air-King” has appeared on the dial since its introduction in 1958, with each letter clearly printed, making the model instantly recognizable. Since 2016, the Air-King version has had a distinctive black dial with a combination of large size 3, 6, and 9-hour markers and a prominent minute scale, supporting travel time. submit. The green second hand represents the brand’s iconic color.
In 2022, Rolex introduced a new generation of Oyster Perpetual Air-King watches. The model features a completely redesigned case with a winding crown guard and flat edges similar to most other specialized models. The proportions of the Oyster bracelet have also been adjusted, notably the enlarged central link. For the first time, this model is equipped with an Oysterlock safety lock. The display of the watch has also been refreshed and perfectly balanced thanks to the addition of a zero before the number 5 on the minute scale. Therefore, every five minutes is marked with two digits.
In addition, the new generation Air-King series takes advantage of the optimized Chromalight display, which ensures the best readability in low-light conditions. The hour hand and triangular hour markers at 12 o’clock are coated with new luminescent material, providing a more intense light and a longer-lasting glow. The numerals 3, 6, and 9 previously made entirely of 18 ct white gold, are now also visible in the dark thanks to Rolex’s exclusive, innovative material.
The benchmark of robustness and reliability, the new generation Air-King’s 40 mm Oyster case guarantees water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet). The watch’s middle case is crafted from a solid block of Oystersteel, a special corrosion-resistant alloy. The delicately grooved case back is tightened with a special tool so that only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement inside. The Twinlock crown, equipped with a double-layer waterproofing system, tightens to the watch case and is protected by an inseparable crown-shaped guard. The watch glass is made of sapphire with scratch resistance and has an anti-reflective coating. The waterproof Oyster case provides ultimate protection for the watch’s movement.
The new generation Air-King is powered by caliber 3230, a self-winding mechanical movement developed and crafted by Rolex, launched in 2020, and fitted to this model in 2022. At the forefront of craftsmanship. This multi-patented, self-winding mechanical watch boasts the characteristics of precision, power reserve, impact and magnetic resistance, ease of use, and reliability.
Caliber 3230 integrates with the patented Chronergy escapement, which combines energy efficiency and high reliability, with a nickel-phosphorus material that protects against magnetic influences. The movement fitted with the ultimate blue Parachrom hairspring is manufactured by Rolex in a paramagnetic alloy, with the addition of a Rolex hairspring, ensuring steady operation in all positions. The oscillator is housed between high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, designed by Rolex and patented, increasing the movement’s shock resistance.
Caliber 3230 incorporates a self-winding module thanks to the Perpetual rotor. Thanks to the newly designed hairspring and the extremely efficient escapement, the power reserve of the caliber 3230 can last up to 70 hours.
The new generation Air-King is equipped with an Oyster strap. Developed in the late 1930s, this three-piece joint Oyster bracelet remains the most popular bracelet in the Oyster Perpetual collection and is renowned for its incredible durability.
The Oyster bracelet on this new version is equipped with a Rolex-designed and patented Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental release. In addition, the convenient Easylink extension eyelet, developed by Rolex itself, makes it easy for the wearer to adjust the strap length by about 5 mm. In addition, the included hidden folding system ensures a seamless design between the strap and the watch case.
As with all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Air-King is a certified Superlative Chronometer, reaffirmed by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive certification affirms that every Rolex watch passes the mark. A series of tests were carried out by Rolex itself in its own laboratory with the brand’s signature criteria, according to the official certification of movements by the Swiss Institute for Watch Quality Control (COSC).
