During the height of World War II, pilots all over the world utilized Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches. To celebrate the bravery of these pilots, Hans Wilsdorf released the Rolex Air Series of watches, including the Airking. The Airking is celebrated for its understated style featuring a 34mm case, Jubilee bracelet, Fliplock clasp, and simplistic dial adorned with silver index hour markers and sweeping hands topped with lume. The Oyster case provides the much-needed durability for transitioning from the ground to high altitudes with the addition of a screw-down crown. Vintage Rolex Airking watches, such as the reference 5500, are highly sought-after collectibles due to their rich history and classic style.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. While not the least expensive option, Bob's service has been great. And, having had the watch assessed by a certified Rolex dealer in NY, I was assured not only was it in extraordinarily good condition cosmetically, the work done on the internal mechanics was excellent. I would recommend Bob's highly.
very accurate description but I assumed it would be in a Rolex box. Excellent service
Affordable. Great credit terms. Awesome watch.
A outstanding piece. Under rated by there scale. If this watch would have came with the original box it could be sold for new old Stock
Bob’s Watches is truly an amazing company. This was my first Pre-Owned watch purchase and it was an amazing experience. I had a few questions and they were answered immediately and unlike many other online dealers they actually have the watches in inventory. Placed my order at 4pm and it was at my door at 10:30am the next morning on the other side of the country. The pricing and experience are truly exceptional!!
As promised. Was able to replace lost/stolen Long beloved watch with close approximation.
Love the simplistic, lux, classic, and timeless look to the Airking.
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
