Cash Loans on Rolex Air-King Watches in Virginia Beach

After debuting in 1945, the Rolex Air-King became one of the most enduring models ever produced by Rolex. In fact, it's one of the oldest models and longest-lasting models from the Rolex brand. Designed to be a practical watch, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is one of the most affordable models from the brand. Even though the Rolex Air-King has lower retail prices than some of the other watches from the Rolex brand, it's still a valuable and well-made watch that you can use to take out cash loans in Virginia Beach.


Put simply, you don't have to sell your older or new-generation Oyster Perpetual Air-King to get cash from it. Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry in Virginia Beach offers easy cash loans on the first Air-King models all the way to the most recent ones. We hold ourselves to such high standards that we think you'll find we are the best place to go to get a cash loan, even if you have bad credit.


What is the Rolex Air-King?

The Rolex Air-King is not actually the first "Air" model that was released by the brand. During and after World War II, Rolex actually released a few different "Air" models, such as the "Air-Giant" and "Air-Tiger." The British Royal Air Force were big fans of Rolex watches, so these models were named after them. Although the other "Air" models were certainly nice watches that were made with the utmost care, none of them were quite as popular or successful as the Air-King.


The Rolex Air-King was given its name because of its impressively large case for the time period, with a 34 mm case. Many more modern Rolex models have significantly bigger cases than this, but these were considered to be quite big watches when they were first released. Originally, the Air-King watches used hand-winding movements. However, big changes were made to the new Rolex Air-King that was released in 1953, since this was the first automatic version of the Oyster Perpetual Air-King. Naturally, the exceptional quality of the Rolex Air-King continued on in future models.


Even more changes were made to the original Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King in 1957. In fact, this single model saw the most changes and became a true cornerstone of the Air-King product line for many years to follow. These watches were given reference numbers of 5500. Each model featured an Oyster bracelet and a simple dial and markers on the watch's display.


Rolex released a companion model to this model of the Air-King, which was known as the Air-King-Date. Even though it was manufactured from 1958 until the 1980s, there is a big difference in the availability of Rolex watches from different models. The Rolex Air-King-Date is a bit harder to find than some Rolex Datejust watches, so if you have an Air-King-Date, it might have more value than you think.


The Rolex Air-King was updated a few more times over the years, notably, in 1989 and 2007. It was actually discontinued for a while beginning in 2014, but Rolex re-launched the Rolex Air-King in 2016. When re-released, the Rolex Air-King was designed with an impressive 40 mm Oyster case and a new overall look, with modern watches in mind. An even newer model of the Rolex Air-King was released in 2022.


No matter which time in history your Rolex Air-King is from, it has value and can therefore be used for one of our collateral loans. We have knowledge about both used and new Rolex watches of all models and styles, and we can accurately value your watch and make you a competitive collateral loan based on this value.


We Make Loans on Rolex Air-King Watches in Virginia Beach

Not only can you count on Hilltop Pawn for a host of other pawn shop services, but you can count on us to help you with borrowing money on your Rolex Air-King watch, too. Our loans are collateral loans, which makes them simpler for everyone involved. There's no application, no income check, no job check, and no credit check. Your credit will not be affected for asking us for a loan, taking out a loan, or even defaulting on a loan. Also, if you've taken out a loan with us before and did not repay it, don't worry. You can still come to us for a watch with your Rolex Air-King watch.


How Do Loans Work on Rolex Air-King Watches?

The idea of using your Rolex Air-King watch as a way of taking out a loan might be pretty intriguing, but if you've never done it before, you may not know what to expect. The way these loans work is actually very simple, though.


First, you'll have to gather up your watch and any accessories that you might have for it, such as your original box, owner's manual, original ownership certificate, and more. Don't sweat it if you don't have these things, but bring them if you do, since they can add to the value of your watch. You'll want your watch to be as valuable as possible when you bring it in, particularly if you're hoping to take out a bigger loan.

When you bring your watch, one of our experienced associates will carefully check its reference number and examine it to determine its model and condition. This is when we will decide how much your watch is worth. This is relevant, since it impacts our loan offer. After all, loaning money based on the value of a customer's collateral allows us to increase the customer's borrowing power while also reducing our risk.


When we've decided how much your Rolex Air-King watch is worth, we will tell you how much we can loan you, how much you will need to pay back to retrieve your watch and close out the loan, and when your repayment date will be. All of this will be written on a pawn ticket that you can take with you for future reference. If you have questions, go ahead and ask when we make your offer, and we'll do our best to answer all of your questions for you. You can then decide if you're interested in moving forward with the loan!


Once you've agreed to the loan offer and have decided you want to borrow from us, we'll take down some of the information from your government-issued, valid ID. Then, we'll count out your cash and send you on your way! In the meantime, we'll hold your Rolex Air-King in secure storage in our shop, so you can feel good in knowing that it's kept safe until you return to repay your loan.


You don't have to wait until your repayment date to repay your loan and get your watch back. Any time before your repayment date, you can settle up your loan and pick up your watch. If you do happen to need a little more time, that is not a problem, either. Just stop by at your convenience (before your repayment date), and let us know you need a little more time. We'll explain how an extension works and will make you an extension on the loan.


We make it very easy to borrow money, and we'll do everything we can to make the experience pleasant, helpful, and stress-free for you!


Tips for Your Cash Loan in Virginia Beach

Taking out a cash loan in Virginia Beach will be even more successful if you remember a few tips! For example, make sure you visit Hilltop Pawn instead of another pawn shop. You'll have the chance to work with locals who have been in the business for a while and who have experience. You can also experience our great reputation and find out why people from Virginia Beach and beyond come to us for cash loans and other pawn shop services.


Also, do not forget to bring your ID! This is a common mistake, but we cannot grant a loan (or even buy your Rolex Air-King, if that's what you're interested in) without it. This isn't our rule, it's Virginia state law. Luckily, as long as you're over 18 and bring along a valid, government-issued ID, moving forward with your collateral loan will not be a problem!


How Else Can I Take Out a Cash Loan in Virginia Beach?

Not only do we accept pre-owned models of the Rolex Air-King for our Virginia Beach cash loans, but we accept other Rolex models for our loans, too! Bring your Rolex Explorer, used or new Air-King, or any other luxury watch to us for an easy loan. This works whether you have a new model with a new reference number or a vintage or classic watch!


In addition to accepting Rolex and luxury watches for our loans, we accept other items of value, too! White gold jewelry, yellow gold jewelry, rare coins, musical instruments, and many other items of value can be used at Hilltop Pawn for a no credit check cash loan in Virginia Beach. If you're wondering what we take, give us a call, or stop by Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry for more information!


We Buy, Sell, Trade, and Make Loans on Rolex Air-King Watches in Virginia Beach

Because of the varying availability of certain models, you can check our inventory regularly to see what we have in stock.

Let us be your official dealer any time you're looking to buy watches from top watch brands.

We can also add you to our waiting list if you want us to contact you when we get a specific model in stock!


Additionally, we buy and make trades on Rolex Air-King watches and other luxury watches, too. If you'd rather just sell your watch instead of worrying about taking out and repaying a loan, that is an option! We pay cash! We can also offer you a trade-in credit for the value of your Rolex Air-King watch, and you can put that money toward buying another luxury watch, a nice piece of fine jewelry, or anything else that we have in stock that you're interested in!
