There are quite some companies that customise Rolex watches, all with the result of decreasing value of that specific watch. However if it’s a special order and is customised by Rolex themselves it makes it more interesting and costly. The last tritium special edition they made was for the drivers of ‘Winn-Dixie’. Once you made it to 10 years without any damage during the driving you got this as a present. What makes it even cooler is the full set with name of the driver, matching the caseback engraving, and the condition this watch is in.
The RAF pilots were honoured for their duty in 1945, when Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf named a series of Oyster watches after them. The Air-Lion, Air-Giant and Air-Tiger might not sound familiar as they were discontinued shortly after production. However there is one model still being produced, even after 70 years: the Air-King. Over the years Rolex kept refining the Air-King and they continued to issue new reference numbers. All the different reference numbers have somethings in common. They are all simple designs, executed in steel, and with a no-nonsense reliable movement. Although it has always been among the least costly models from Rolex, it is loved by many watch enthusiasts.
