The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist's Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex a Rolex, with no distractions.
As is customary with Rolex, the execution of the dial furniture and hands is exceptional, with nary a rough spot to be seen, even in extreme closeup. The Oyster bracelet and folding Oyster clasp are, as no one who has ever tried on a Rolex of recent manufacture will be surprised to hear, noiselessly smooth and reliable in operation, and as comfortable as if they'd been made of silk instead of steel. Once on the wrist, the even distribution of weight goes a long way to ensure the initial sense of comfort isn't a fleeting one
