The Rolex Air-King was developed in the 1940s and has since garnered an impressive following among preowned Rolex collectors who seek a modest and sophisticated entry-level luxury watch. Some of the most notable Air-King owners in recent history have been John McCain and actress Jennifer Aniston. The ref. 5500 that you see here today is a popular vintage Air-King that came to market in 1957 and runs on either a calibre 1520 or a calibre 1530. The 34mm Oyster case and flat-link Oyster bracelet are always presented in brushed stainless steel, and the dial displays the time on a simple, three hand dial. This particular timepiece pairs the steel finish with a black dial, which is topped with silver markers and hands.

Watch arrived overnight and exactly as advertised. Makenzie was terrific and made the purchase seamless. Can't say enough about Bob's quality and customer service.
The watch was in exquisite condition, superior to what was shown in the photos. The person who assisted me with the process was patient and very helpful.
Accurate description of watch. Purchase was straight forward. Watch was delivered quickly. Would/will buy from Bob’s again.
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!!
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
