Stunning 1988 to 1990 Rolex Oyster Airking with Jubilee Bracelet, Box and Paperwork Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-king Precision dating from 1990.The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed midnight blue and slightly pearlescent dial is classically Rolex. The applied steel hour batons and original slim steel hands provide a lovely contrast to the dial and blend perfectly with the gleaming case. The high grade calibre perpetual (automatic) movement is again in excellent condition and has just been serviced by our professionally watchmaker. We also have the original and very rare Rolex stainless steel ‘Jubilee’ bracelet which is in excellent condition and is a good size (will fit 7.5 to 7.75 inch wrist – we are able to find spare links and they are £35 each and will take 7 – 10 days to fit). We’ve also taken a picture with a new, high quality, black Hirsch crocodile skin strap with an aftermarket steel Rolex buckle.

Watches of this quality and in this condition, especially with the original paperwork, 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 12 month guarantee on the movement which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
