The Rolex Air-King 34mm is powered by the ultra-reliable 3130 movement, giving the wearer approximately 48 hours of reserve power. It is basically the same movement as the 3135 with the small exception that it does not have a date window complication. The 3130 movement was first released in 2001. The Air-King line has been replaced in recent years with the much larger 40 mm case. However, many collectors love the smaller profile of the 34 mm Oyster case which has a lighter weight as compared to its larger sibling. The Air-King comes with an Oyster Bracelet with Oysterclasp and is fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
The above Air-King is fitted with a Rubber B Black Tuxedo band. Tuxedo Velour® is a 100% rubber strap, with a velour texture incorporated into the design. Although it has a Tuxedo look, it is fully waterproof and perfect for swimming and sunbathing. This model comes with luminescent hour markers and a screwdown crown, providing water resistance for outdoor activities. The Tuxedo band is built for an active lifestyle, yet is luxurious enough to wear with the finest business suit or tuxedo. The Air-King has a simplicity of design, yet is sophisticated and can be utilized in nearly any situation. Although the above Air-King is pictured with stainless-steel hour markers and hour, minute and seconds hands, the below Air-King utilizes Arabic numerals at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. Both the hands and hour markers are luminescent and provide visibility no matter what your day or night brings.
Rubber B designed 4 of the best bracelets for the Air-King 34mm. These watchbands are made from vulcanized rubber and are precisely calibrated to fit the Air-King 34mm case, sporting the 19mm lug. These straps utilize “Block Integration” engineering for a flawless, motionless mount which is flush to the Air King 34mm case. These straps are fully compatible with the original Oyster clasp that came with the timepiece.
Rubber B alternative bands for the Air-King 34mm are made in Switzerland with a universal fit. Rubber B bands allow the Rolex Air-King owner to dress up the timepiece for the fanciest occasions and yet be ready for action should the party head poolside or to the beach.
