Beautiful 1972 Rolex Oyster Airking Precision Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-king Precision dating from 1972. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed black dial is untouched and in very good condition with only minor wear. The applied gold hour batons and original slim gold hands provide a strong contrast to the dial and are perfectly by the gleaming case. The high grade perpetual (automatic) movement is again in excellent condition and has just been serviced by our professionally watchmaker. To complete this watch we’ve added a new, high quality, black Sonning Vintage Watches and Hirsch ‘London’ alligator strap with steel Hirsch buckle.

Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they will only increase in value.

As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 3 month guarantee on the movement which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
