The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King, in general, is often overlooked by collectors in favor of other more well-known Rolex watches. The Air-King, which boasts classic Rolex style at an attractive, entry-level price deserves a closer look. This particular vintage ref. 5500 pairs a traditional stainless steel Oyster case with a flat-link Oyster bracelet and secure Fliplock clasp. A black dial offers a handsome contrast and is topped with silver indices, hands, and a Rolex logo at 12 o'clock. The time-only movement offers self-winding technology and is protected against water damage via a crown that screws into the middle case. If it's a durable and reliable vintage watch with a striking presence on the wrist that you seek, then we recommend the Air-King watch.

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....
