ROLEX AIR KING DATE w/box & papers

Here is a very uncommon reference 5700, ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL AIR KING DATE PRECISION with box and papers dating to 1971 but was sold in 1972, as seen in the papers. These AIR KING DATES are the “hot ROLEX watch” at this time. This is an uncommon variety of AIR KING that was sold mainly in Canada and Commonwealth countries only. The date is the feature making it uncommon; as the regular and common AIR KINGS do not have the date. The 35mm. stainless steel case is extremely clean. The original and uncommon slate grey dial is excellent; having raised, shimmering steel baton markers and matching hands. The (automatic winding) caliber 1520 movement was just meticulously cleaned and overhauled by our ROLEX TRAINED watchmaker and is keeping excellent time. This watch is VERY hard to find. I believe these are a smart investment grade watch due to them being so uncommon.-especially with box and papers.
