Rolex has always injected itself into the frontier of what men and women war accomplishing in the world; in exploration and human feats Rolex was to be found. So when the air war broke out in England during the second World War, Rolex had something up their sleeve…quite literally to assist Brattain’s pilots. The “Air-Line” of watches was popular among RAF pilots in the 1930s; these were the heroic “Few” that Churchill had immortalized during the Battle of Britain in 1940. After World War II, Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf recalled the favor his watches had been shown by the British pilots, he was so pleased that he chose to honor these heroes by creating a dedicated line of Oyster watches fit for the sky.
