Sell Your Rolex Air-King Watch in Virginia Beach

From the "Rolex Air" lineup that was named after the British Royal Air Force, of which many of the service members were big fans of Rolex watches, the Rolex Air-King is the most popular and enduring. Because the Rolex Air-King has been around since 1945, there is a big difference between the overall look and design of different models from over the years. No matter which Rolex Air-King watch you own, we'd love to take a look at it and pay you cash for it at Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry. Bring your used or new Air-King watch by our Virginia Beach location today so we can consider its retail prices and make you a fair and competitive offer!


Sell Your Rolex Air-King Watch in Virginia Beach

Whether it's the white gold Oyster bracelet, the overall exceptional quality, or the other features of your pre-owned Rolex that you like the most, you probably know that your used or new Rolex Air-King is a nice watch. In fact, the Rolex Air-King is one of the most enduring Rolex models on the market. Even though you might like your practical watch from Rolex, you might be thinking about selling it. You could be thinking about trying watches from different brand names (such as TAG Heuer or Patek Philippe) and may want to sell your current pre-owned watches first, or you might just really need to put some cash in your pocket. Luckily, at Hilltop Pawn, we pay competitive prices for all pre-owned models of the Rolex Air-King.


A Brief History of the Rolex Air-King

As mentioned above, the Rolex Air-King was an addition to the Rolex Air line. The first Air-King watch was released in 1945, but it has a long history with the Rolex brand since then. The first Air-King watches had a 34 mm case when first released. Although there are certainly much larger Rolex case sizes now, this was an impressively large case for the time period. In fact, this is how the Air-King got its name!


When first released, the new-generation Oyster Perpetual Air-King was actually designed with simplicity in mind. It featured a solid-colored Air-King dial and three hands. Not only was it one of the simpler models from the brand, but it was also designed to be more affordable than the majority of professional category models by Rolex. In fact, even though the availability of certain models of the Rolex Air-King make some of these watches more valuable than others, the Air-King is still one of the more affordable options for someone who loves luxury watches but wants to stick to a reasonable cost.


The first Rolex Air-King ref numbers actually featured hand-winding hunter movements. However, this changed in 1953, when a new model was released with a new reference number. This was when Rolex began to make all Air-King watches from their lineup with automatic movements.


Although some changes were made to the Air-King over the years, its smaller case and simpler design meant it no longer competed well with the ever-popular Rolex Datejust. Therefore, some changes were made to the Rolex Air-King in 1989 and 2000. In 2014, however, it was briefly discontinued.


This did not last for too long, though. Rolex re-released the Rolex Air-King in 2016. At this time, the new arrivals from the Rolex Air-King lineup were quite different from older versions. They were released with a new case that was significantly larger than the cases of past Air-Kings, and each new Rolex Air-King was released with a 40 mm Oyster case. As official Rolex retailers will tell you, the exceptional finish and utmost care put into this watch's display and overall design mean that this watch is still a favorite among those who are interested in sales of watches, despite being one of the simpler and more affordable models from top watch brands like Rolex.


If you own a Rolex Air-King yourself from any year and with any reference number, you are probably well-aware of just how nice these watches really are. If you are looking to sell your Rolex Air-King but want to make sure you get paid what you deserve for this fine timepiece, you don't have to worry. Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach buys Rolex models with steel watch cases or that are made from white gold or yellow gold. No matter which model you have, we're looking forward to making you a cash offer today!


Why Sell Your Rolex Air King to Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach?

Because of the lack of availability of Rolex watches of many models, you might know that there are many people and companies who might pay you for your watch.

Avoid Hassles and Scams

When selling a Rolex Air-King to a private buyer, you have to worry about the person never showing up or having less-than-good intentions.

Make a Trade

One great option we offer for people who want to sell their Rolex Air-King is the option to trade for something else in our store! If you have your eye on another luxury watch that you've seen in our cases, or if you're ready to buy fine jewelry for yourself or someone you love, trading in your Rolex Air-King is a great option! We'll give you credit toward your purchase, based on the value of your Rolex Air-King. If the item you want to trade for is worth less than your Rolex Air-King, we'll give you the remainder in cash! Because we are more of a fine jewelry and luxury watch store than a traditional pawn shop, you're sure to find something that catches your eye when you take a look at our cases. We also offer a nice selection of jewelry, luxury watches, and more at our sister location in Chesapeake, Greenbrier Pawn!


Alternatives to Selling Your Current Rolex Air-King Model

Rolex has historically held itself to such high standards when manufacturing its watches, that you can always count on these timepieces to be something special. This might be why you don't want to part with your Rolex Air-King at all, but you might feel you have no other choice. At Hilltop Pawn, though, we offer another alternative that will allow you to keep your piece!


Basically, we offer collateral loans on all items of value. We are particularly interested in offering collateral loans on the items that we regularly sell in our shop, such as luxury watches (including the Rolex Air-King). Since the loan is backed by the value of your watch, we can grant you a cash loan without requiring you to fill out an application and without pulling your credit report. The amount you can borrow depends on the resale value of your specific pre-owned watch.


Turn your Rolex Air-King into cash today without having to sell it! Just take out one of our loans, make it a point to repay your loan before the due date, and get your watch back. Then, you can get out of a financial bind, but you'll be able to get your watch back, too. It's a win-win situation.
