well made: Rolex Air-King

Although the least expensive member of the Oyster Perpetual family, to my mind the understated Air-King is undoubtedly the most appealing. Named in honour of Battle of Britain fighter pilots the Air-King, like all classic designs, has changed little in appearance over the years. It's an easy to wear everyday wristwatch with few frills - Oyster bracelet, 34mm steel case and mechanical, self winding movement.
