Overall a stunning looking watch which will suit most occasions. A watch like this will never go out of fashion. A real all rounder which has that canny effect of looking dressy.

A stunning entry level Rolex with the original parts at an affordable price. We have sold thousands of high end watches, see our excellent feedback and view our other luxury watches.

No offers. If you was to resale on in the near future we do not think you can lose money at this price. Prices will continue to soar in price as the years go by.
Overall a classy watch and in good working order. Please ensure you are comfortable with the size at 34mm (37mm with crown included) - vintage Rolex watches are smaller than today's standards - which are around 40mm. The watch is modelled on a 6.5 inch wrist so it will suit most men and / or women who prefer larger watches.

This 1971 Rolex Air King "Oyster" watch was originally sold as water resistant up to 100m which is impressive even by today's standards. The screw-down crown technology established Rolex as the go to watch for many water sportsman / women. However we do not recommend jumping to the water with any vintage watch as water resistant status can now longer be guaranteed.

The watch is working exactly how it should. There is nothing to do with this watch apart from enjoy !

The new NATO strap gives this watch another dimension. If you prefer a difference colour nato or leather strap instead please message shortly after checkout.
