Rolex Air King Date. Rolex Serviced
Rolex Air King Precision Date automatic watch model reference 5700. IT was serviced by Rolex UK in 2014 and comes with the service guarantee card as well as the service receipt from authorised Rolex dealers, Mappin & Webb. The service cost £507.50. The Air King date was allegedly only made for two years at separate intervals and is one of the most collectable of the non sports models and certainly the most collectable Air King and a must for any Rolex collection. As such it is a rare watch and rarer still it has the Mercury dial which is a dark silver colour. The Air Kings are usually seen with silver dial. This one dates to 1974. It is in lovely condition and has been well maintained over the years. The bracelet is a 7835 solid link later possibly a later replacement which has been fitted during the service as many were folded link in the 70's but still a genuine Rolex bracelet and a good upgrade as the solid links are more substantial. The acrylic crystal, dial and hands are in excellent condition for the age. The watch has a screw down crown, usual Rolex trademark features such as signed crown, signed bracelet with folding clasp with coronet logo on the clasp, all stainless steel case and bracelet and screw on case back. Also with large Air King Date logo across the dial to provide classic Air King style. Keeping excellent time as one would expect a Rolex to do. Dimensions are as follows. The width is 34 mm excluding crown, and 36.5 mm including the crown. The thickness is 11 mm and the lug to lug.
