  • Description

    Superb example from 1973 of the Air-King Date model discontinued over 30 years ago. Incredibly, its now 60 years ago since the first 'Date" incarnation of the Air-King was released, and it's name heralds from the fact that the model was originally created for RAF Pilot's to wear after W.W.2 back in 1945. The 'King' part is a nod to what at the time was considered an oversize case at 34mm. With this example considered to be the most desirable configuration of silver dial on original folded link Oyster bracelet prices are already creeping up.

  • Why buy from us

    1st & foremost, we understand & take responsibility for the fact that both tastes & horological fashions are ever changing.

    We do this by being willing to take back past pieces we've sold either in the form of part exchanges or cash when needed.

    With clients rarely loosing more than 15-20% in this process & even benefitting from large profits on occasion, we believe this is the way to build trust with the public. For example. If going 'off piste' & not sticking to in vogue trendy watches such as Batman's, we believe you would incur the same monetary loss spending £20,000 with us on your various purchases as you would spending £8500 at new RRP.

    The very fact that we've never advertised in over 30 years shows we have a long standing loyal customer base. Please see testimonials for more on this.
