Rolex Air King Date 15000


The vintage Rolex Air King Date 15000 is the epitome of what a Rolex watch is all about, and here is a fantastic specimen to behold!

Yes, the ‘Air King-Date’ has lived in the footsteps of its bigger brothers, the GMT, the Submariner, and Daytona, but it is no less a Rolex for that. In fact, with its uncomplicated simplicity, it is the pure distillation of the design philosophy of the Rolex Watch Company.

The Rolex “Air-King-Date,” reference 15000, is part of the Oyster Perpetual Date collection, which was launched in the 1960s and continued production until the late 1980s. Our watch has an ‘L’ serial number that shows that it was manufactured in 1989, so it was one of the last to be produced. It sports a classic watch size of 34mm but wears more like 36mm on the wrist.

The elegant and understated stainless steel case houses an automatic movement, a Calibre 1520 beating at 19800 vph, and with a power reserve of 42 hours, it gets the job of telling the time done perfectly. Oh, and it has been serviced recently, so all is just tickety-boo!

These watches were offered in a myriad of different colours and dial designs, but our watch shows Rolex Watch Company’s commitment to elegant simplicity with its clean silver sunburst dial and signature design, baton hour markers. It offers practicality in a timeless style.

A new crystal was fitted at the service too, so everything is clear to view.
The Rolex “Air-King-Date” 15000 is admired by vintage watch collectors for its enduring appeal, quality construction, and historical significance, representing Rolex Watch Company’s commitment to the production of enduring and versatile watches.

Presented on a new black leather strap, this is the essence of ‘Cool Simplicity’!
