The Rolex Air-King ref. 5500 remained in production for several decades, from approximately 1957 to 1989 before being discontinued and replaced by the 14000 series in the late 1980s. In addition to its impressive production run, the ref. 5500 is also known for its attractive price tag and modest feature set, which includes a brushed stainless steel finish, a time-only self-winding movement, and a 34mm waterproof Oyster case. The preowned Rolex that is presented here today was produced sometime in the early 1980s and also features an acrylic crystal, a flat-link Oyster bracelet secured by a Fliplock clasp, and a silver dial topped with silver index hour markers and older-style central hands

Accurate description of watch. Purchase was straight forward. Watch was delivered quickly. Would/will buy from Bob’s again.
It is nice, but the watch is smaller in size, than I expected. It is a great retirement gift.
2nd time doing business with this excellent company
Very nice watch. I was very pleased with the entire transaction. This was my first purchase with BOB’S. Everything turned out better than I expected. I would recommend you guys to anyone interested in purchasing a pre owned watch. This watch will go well with my collection.
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....
