Certified Swiss Chronometer - luxury Watches from Rolex
Luxury watches from Rolex in general and especially the model Air-King from Rolex are certified Swiss chronometers. The watch model Rolex Air-King has a caliber 3131, which is a mechanical movement equipped with an automatic self-winding mechanism.

Swiss watchmaking art - the Rolex luxury watch manufacture
Rolex is considered a pioneer in the conception of wristwatches. The manufacture stands for the development and production of all relevant components for its wristwatches. This begins, for example, with the casting of the gold alloys, continues with the production and individual processing, and ends with the assembly or finishing of the movements, cases and dials, as well as the respective bracelet. Rolex's newly developed Air-King model reflects the intense relationship between Rolex and the golden age of aviation in the 1930s. During this era, aircraft technology developed rapidly, enabling incredible performance that soon allowed for the first long-range flights. Aviation pioneers, such as Britain's Charles Douglas Barnard, were absolutely delighted with the Rolex Oyster and its suitability for aviation in terms of reliability and accuracy.
