At the end of the war, Rolex created the Air-King as a tribute to the pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain. The large (for the time) 34mm case and simple dial layout were a hit. And the Rolex Air-King soon became popular with pilots. In 1957, Rolex introduced the Ref 5500 Air-King. That model remained in production for the next 37 years. Before receiving a refresh with the Ref 1400, which introduced a sapphire crystal. And a new movement. In 2007, Rolex released the Ref 114200. The first Air-King to be COSC-certified. The Air-King dial features a distinctive black dial with a combination of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours and a prominent minute scale for navigational time readings. It bears the name Air-King in the same lettering that was designed specially for the model in the 1950s.
