If you seek an entry-level vintage Rolex with history and character, consider the stainless steel Rolex 5500 Air King that is presented here today. This particular reference was produced sometime in the 1980s and features an older-style Oyster case and bracelet in brushed stainless steel. A matching silver dial displays the time via silver index hour markers and central hands, creating a sleek and timeless all-steel design. Hans Wilsdorf was inspired by British Royal Air Force pilots when he developed the Air Series of watches, which included the Air-King as well as the now-discontinued Air-Giant, Air-Tiger, and Air-Lion. He sought to develop a sophisticated yet resilient watch that could tough higher altitudes and exposure to water while presenting modest style for everyday wear and finer occasions.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
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....
