Rolex vintage Air-King Date 5700 with the original “3,6,9” dial. 34mm stainless steel case with a smooth bezel. Rare original 6, 9 Arabic dial with date displayed at the 3 o’clock position. Fitted to a oyster link bracelet (78350) with double folding clasp. Powered by a calibre 1530 automatic movement. The model (5700) was produced alongside the “5500” model which did not have the date feature. During early production years unique and rare dial configurations were manufactured until they were set to standard uniformed baton dials in the 1970s. Many early original dials were replaced by Rolex service centres which is what makes these original “3,6,9” pieces so rare. Our beautiful original example was supplied new 1963 with a 937*** serial number.
