Rolex Air King 14000M
The Rolex Air King is a model that has been in the Rolex range since the 1940’s and has always been an excellent crossover watch between sports and dress models.
Originally created for the Royal Air Force, or at least as a post-war tribute to them, the 34mm case size was considered daringly large in the day for a civilian watch, hence the “King” part of the its name. We wouldn’t consider it to be ‘King Sized’ these days – funny how trends change.
This 2000 ‘M’ version is one of the first made with the updated 3130 movement and it has a beautiful case, dial, hands and markers and a bracelet with virtually no stretch whatsoever. The white dial with its black Roman Numeral markers is pretty striking while maintaining a really classy style and is in many ways reminiscent of a ‘Buckley’ Datejust.
The movement has just been serviced by a well renowned watchmaker and then tested by Rolex certified watchmakers S Michlmayr & Co and as you would expect it’s running perfectly as befits a watch of this quality.
Complete with the correct papers, wallet, books and green tag (The 14000M Air King was never Chronometer certified hence no red seal), this is a lovely Full Set and at Oakleigh Watches, we love a Rolex Full Set.
Supplied with a 12 month warranty against mechanical failure, all in all this is a superb watch at a great price.
