During its production run the Rolex Air-King reference 5500 was available with either an Air-King or an Explorer dial. The particular reference 5500 that we have here today features the classic Air-King dial set with index hour markers and Dauphine hands characterized by a beautiful patina lume. This particular reference also holds the distinction of a Super Precision timepiece, signifying that it carries a calibre 1530 perpetual movement within its case. As its name would suggest, the Air-King was developed as a pilots utility watch during the height of World War II. This means that the Air-King utilizes Rolex's durable Oyster case, which is resistant to depths of up to 100 meters as well as higher altitudes. A striking vintage timepiece with an interesting history, the Rolex Air-King is an ideal addition to any watch box.
