Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King Watch

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King Ref.5500

IMG_0935_2The black glossy dial of the Air-King above has a mesmerising depth to it. This example, made at the end of the 1970s, was fitted with a steel Rolex Jubilee bracelet.

The Air-King with charcoal grey dial is another vintage favourite with a lovely satin finish which changes in tone as it catches the light. This example was recently sold at Black Bough and was in wonderful original condition – Black Bough’s watchmaker, who overhauled the watch, opened the watch to find it in untouched condition.

Hard to beat the classic combination of silvered, satin finished dial paired with a 14ct gold case as shown on the watch above. This Air-King is hallmarked for the year 1970 and was supplied by Rolex to the UK market.air king The inside of the case back, alongside the usual Rolex Geneva stamps, signatures and Swiss hallmarks has UK import hallmarks for the year 1970 showing that this watch was supplied to Rolex UK. During this period, it was standard practice to duplicate the serial number of Oyster watches destined for the UK market inside the case back (in addition to the usual positioning of the case number between the lugs). Presumably this was in order to ensure that the main body of the case and its back did not become separated during the import hallmarking process. Of course, today, this is rather a nice detail for collectors. The watch, with further photographs showing the inside case back, movement and other images can be viewed on the Black Bough website by clicking here.

Fake and replica luxury watches are increasingly being sold through spam email.
Researchers at anti-spam specialist Sophos have reported a significant increase in the last week in the number of spam emails trading on the name of the luxury watch manufacturer Rolex. Examining all the spam seen in the last month, Sophos's global monitoring stations have recorded a 300% rise in the number of junk emails referencing Rolex.
"Spammers hawking cheap watches are the internet equivalent of Del Boy and Rodney, but few computer users who have to wade through a barrage of unsolicited emails every day will find their antics amusing," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos
