We Make Cash Loans on Rolex Air-King Watches in Chesapeake


Despite the fact that this particular watch was actually designed to be one of the more simple and affordable watches from Rolex's lineup, retail prices on older and new Air-King watches are still quite high. As you might know, Greenbrier Pawn makes cash loans on older and new Rolex watches of all kinds, including the new-generation Oyster Perpetual Air-King. The amount you'll be able to borrow depends on how we value your used or new model, so using a watch that was made to such high standards is a good way to borrow more. Additionally, you'll want to take out a loan from someone who knows and truly values your watch.


That's why people visit Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake when taking out these loans. We offer competitive prices both when you're making loans or buying Rolex Air-King watches, including the older models and the newer models that all come with a distinctive black dial on the watch's display and that have an Oyster bracelet.


The History of the Enduring Rolex Air-King

The history of the Rolex Air-King actually predates its release in 1945. In the 1930s and 1940s, before and during World War II, Rolex Air watches (such as the Air-Giant and Air-Tiger), were known as favorites among the British Royal Air Force. Each watch was the perfect pilot's watch because of its reliability and larger case size. In fact, Rolex Air watches specifically got their name because of their heavy use by the British Royal Air Force.


There were originally several Rolex Air models, but in 1945, Rolex decided to combine all of its Air models into just one single model: The Rolex Air-King. Originally, the Rolex Air King did not have automatic movements. Automatic movements were first released in the most current Rolex Air-King watches in 1953. They were released with a 34 mm Oyster case. Although this might seem a bit small compared to other Rolex watches that are now on the market, these were quite large watches for the time. Later versions of the Rolex Air-King were released in much larger sizes, though. For example, in 2016, a more modernized version of the Rolex Air-King was released -- after a brief discontinuation, which occurred in 2014 -- with a 40mm case size. This newer version was made with exceptional quality and a big difference in the overall look and modernity of the watch. Many people love the completely redesigned case that can be found on new reference number Rolex Air-King watches. However, others love the more classic look of the older Rolex Air-King watches.


Whether you have a Rolex Air-King with the new case size or one of the older models, your watch has a rich history. Additionally, it can be used to take out one of our easy cash loans!


Rolex Air-King Ref Number Differences

As is the case with other watches from the Rolex production capacity, brand name Air-King watches come in a variety of different reference numbers. The very first Air-King watch was released with a reference number of 4925. During the 1940s, Air-King watches were also released with reference numbers of 4365 and 4499.


The first automatic version of the Rolex Air-King was released with a reference number of 6552. Then, in 1957, what was perhaps the most iconic Rolex Air-King ever was released with a reference number of 5500. A companion model was also released at this time with a reference number of 5700. This watch was known as the Rolex Air-King-Date.


In 1989, a new Air-King model was released with the reference number of 14000. This was still a smaller and more simple watch, but one big change was made. Instead of only being released with the traditional stick markers that were always found on Rolex Air-King watches before, some of the new arrivals were released with 3-6-9 markers, which was a similar style to the Rolex Explorer. Additional watches in 1989 were released under the reference number of 14010. A refreshed version of the 1989 Rolex Air-King was released in 2000 and was known as 14000M.


Multiple reference numbers of the Rolex Air-King were released in 2007. These reference numbers include 114200, 114201, and then 114234, which added a fluted bezel, similar to what you can find on some of the more expensive and high-end Rolex models. When the Rolex Air-King was re-released in 2016, it featured a reference number of 116900.


You may be wondering how to check the reference number on your Rolex. Whether you have a Rolex Air-King or any other Rolex watch, this number can be found on the 12 o'clock position on the outside of the case. If you aren't sure of how to check, don't worry! When you bring your watch in for us to value for a cash loan, we will take care of this for you!


You might also be curious about why the reference number matters. Basically, looking at the reference number helps us quickly and easily get an idea of when your watch was released and what all of its features are. It's a faster way to check the authenticity and value of the watch, although we will obviously look at other things, too. We'll take the utmost care in checking the reference number and other details of your Rolex Air-King so we can make you a fair loan offer when you come to Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake.
