The vintage Air-King ref. 5500 was added to the Rolex catalog in the late 1950's and offers a style that is just as relevant today as when it came to market. Simplistic and sophisticated, this vintage men's Rolex features a 34mm waterproof Oyster case and a matching Oyster bracelet. Crafted from three-piece links and a Fliplock clasp in a brushed steel finish, the bracelet offers a resilient and comfortable hold. As its name would suggest, the Air-King was inspired by and developed for the combat pilots of the British Royal Air Force. The case was ideal for conditions on land and high above the clouds with a waterproof seal that could withstand depths of up to 330 feet as well as higher altitudes.

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....
