From day one, the Rolex Air-King has been adored by many collectors for its simple yet sophisticated style. The case and bracelet are constructed out of stainless steel, keeping the design and price modest while creating a versatile statement piece. The case itself measures 34mm, just shy of the standard 36mm Oyster cases seen with most Rolex dress watches. As a vintage reference, the Air-King 5500 is also accompanied by an Oyster bracelet secured by a Fliplock clasp. The dial exudes vintage elegance and features slim index hour markers, dauphine hands, and the Rolex coronet at the 12 position. The dial features minimal font, with the distinction "Super Precision" signifying that the case carries a calibre 1530 movement and the name "Air-King" in a handsome font.

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....
