The Rolex 5520 Air King is a classic vintage watch dating back to the 1950's. Many believe that it earned its name after the pilots of the Royal British Air Force, who were rumored to have favored Rolex timepieces over their military-issued watches. To honor their bravery and commitment to the brand, Hans Wilsdorf released the Air-King. The ref. 5520 represents simplistic style via a yellow gold shell case measuring 34mm and a time only dial set with yellow gold indices and hands. Minimal script allows the dial to maintain a striking aesthetic that many preowned Rolex collectors can appreciate. Priced just over $4k, this gold Rolex is also reasonably priced and begs to be worn.
