The Rolex Air King reference 5500 came to market in 1957 and was in production for over 30 years. Beloved by collectors for its simplicity and sophisticated style, the Air King is a highly sought-after vintage reference. The clean dial features sleek index hour markers and central hands. A Rolex logo is present at the 12-hour marker and the distinction "Precision" is inscribed just above the 6 position, signifying that this particular reference utilizes a caliber 1520 perpetual movement. In addition to its understated style, the other key feature of the Air King is the use of a slightly smaller 34mm Oyster case. When paired with a three-link bracelet and Fliplock clasp, the Air King is a suitable fit for most wrist sizes.

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....
