Oyster perpetual models are among the most recognizable legendary watches from Rolex. The Rolex M114200-70190 Air-King carries the rich remnants of the classic designs of yesteryear. This unmistakable aesthetic appeal has grown over the years with the watch making know-how of Rolex.
The Air-King has a 34mm diameter Oyster case that is made of 904L steel, which is a very special kind of steel prepared in house by Rolex, and perfectly complements the high quality materials used by Rolex. Usually used in aerospace and chemical industries, this steel is highly corrosion resistant and polishable. Due to this, the watch retains its beauty even under the toughest of the conditions.
It has domed bezel made from the same beautiful steel as the rest of the watch case. There is also a winding crown that can be screwed down. This screw down crown has Twinlock system that ensures waterproofing. Add to that the monobloc middle case and screw down case back that shuts down the case, this Rolex watch gains waterproofing ability down to 100 metres.
The dial of the Air-King is blue in colour and has steel dial markers and needles. You can find the Rolex crown at the 12 o’clock position and the corresponding Arabic numerals at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. The dial is protected by the scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass.
This highly precise watch employs perpetual self-winding 3130 calibre movement. It is an officially certified Swiss chronometer after undergoing a rigorous 15 day and night test. The watch functions include centre hour, minute and seconds hands. You can also stop-seconds for precise time setting.
The bracelet of the watch has a fine polish thanks to the super alloy 904L steel. It has flat three piece links and an Oyster clasp for secure closing and simple opening. It is broad and offers great wearing comfort.
In 1926, Rolex came up with the first waterproof and dust-proof wristwatch, naming it as “Oyster”. Claiming that the watch was waterproof was one thing, proving it was quite another but Rolex achieved this feat in 1927 when Mercedes Gleitze swam across the English channel wearing it. The watch remained in perfect working order even after the swim, which lasted over ten hours. This led to the birth of the testimony concept when Rolex published a full front-page ad in The Daily Mail to proclaim the success of the watch. In 1933 the first expedition to fly over the Everest took place and was equipped with Rolex Oysters.
The aesthetics of the Oyster Perpetual models are deeply rooted in the pioneering origins of Rolex. The watches feature the simplicity of the original watches by Rolex that continue to serve as a symbol of universal and classic style.
The watch is guaranteed to be waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. The Oyster case, which has been used in the watch constitute for an important milestone in the history of contemporary watchmaking. The back of the Oyster case is hermetically screwed down against the middle case, which is crafted exclusively from a solid block of corrosion resistant 904L Steel. The Fluted case back is a legacy associated with Rolex exclusively. It is extremely robust and forms the backbone of the case to which all the other parts are securely fitted. Another core component, which ensures that the watch is watertight, is the winding crown fitted with twin lock double waterproofness system. The watch is Chronometer Certified.
Mercedes Glietze, the first Englishwoman to swim the English Channel is often considered to be the first female celebrity athlete in the United Kingdom. She was also probably the first celebrity to endorse the Rolex Brand. It is interesting that the first celebrity to endorse Rolex as a brand was not a man but a woman. Major brands at that time often chose male celebrities as the face of their product. Rolex earned its right to be called way ahead of its time by choosing this remarkable woman as its ambassador.
