The Air-King was introduced in 1945 and was a part of the Rolex "Air" series, which also included the Air-Lion, Air-Grant, and Air-tiger. Of all of these models, the Air-King is the only model still in production today. Most famous for being the watch that was given to British Royal Airforce pilots, this incredible watch is built for the air, land, or sea. The stainless steel vintage reference 5500 that is seen here features a stainless steel 34mm Oyster case that is built to withstand high altitudes as well as depths of up to 330 feet, making it an ideal companion for military pilots. This reference was introduced in 1958 along with a self-winding movement and was designed specifically for the US, UK, and Commonwealth markets. Making this vintage watch a rare find and adding to its unique history.
*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.
It is nice, but the watch is smaller in size, than I expected. It is a great retirement gift.
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....
