The Pilot's Watch from Rolex
The Rolex Airking is a tribute to the early days of aviation in which many pilots relied on the reliability and robustness of Rolex models. Among other historic and pioneering flights, the Rolex Airking was also the pilot's safe choice for the first flight over Everest.
The Oyster case is a milestone in the history of watchmaking. Invented by Rolex in 1926, it was the world's first waterproof watch case. Bezel, caseback and winding crown are screwed watertight to the middle section. Form and function are perfectly matched - typically Rolex.
Robust & sought after
For a Rolex to retain its beauty and functionality in extreme conditions, Rolex uses its own stainless steel alloy - Oystersteel. It is particularly resistant to corrosion and distinguished by its special shine. Oystersteel belongs to the steel grade "Stainless Steel 904L" which is normally used in extreme areas such as the aerospace and chemical industries.
