The stainless steel Air-King ref. 5500 is an excellent choice to consider if you seek an introductory vintage Rolex watch with immense character. It is rumored that Hans Wilsdorf was inspired by the brave feats of the British Royal Air Force when he developed the Air King itself, equipping it with a tough waterproof Oyster case, a reliable perpetual movement, and an understated design that is easy to wear. The ref. 5500 boasts a modest 34mm Oyster case outfitted with an acrylic crystal and a brushed stainless steel finish. A contrasting black dial offers an elevated design and displays the time via silver indices and hands. The Rolex logo is always prominently displayed at the 12-hour marker.

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....
