Rolex Air-Giant 1946


This is an uncommon ROLEX variety produced mainly for the Commonwealth countries (Canada, UK, Australia etc.)in a gold plated case with ROLEX OYSTER winding crown and stainless steel screw ROLEX OYSTER back. This watch even retains the correct, rare and early Rolex Oyster crown! We purchased this from the family of the original owner. These watches celebrated the battle of Britain-hence the names Air-King, Air-Giant and Air-Tiger. This watch is a mid-size 33.5mm. This was one of the earliest watches of the bunch dating to 1946 and are difficult to find these days. The serial # is 440xxx. The manual winding ROLEX movement was just cleaned and is keeping accurate time. The “Explorer style” dial and pencil hands are original. The lume on the hands may have been re-done at some time WAY back. You will love this uncommon ROLEX AIR-GIANT! A collector’s watch…just $1750.
