During World War II, Rolex created an "Air Series" of watches that were inspired by the combat pilots of the British Royal Air Force. Among the watches in that now-discontinued series was the Air-King. Waterproof up to 330 feet, the Air-King was the perfect companion for flights as well as combat on the ground. Today, the Air-King's waterproof properties allow it to accompany you wherever your day takes you. The vintage reference 5500 also boasts a three-link Oyster bracelet, Fliplock clasp, smooth bezel, and dial set with matching silver indices and hands. A perpetual movement beats within the case and provides a highly reliable reading thanks to the waterproof Oyster case. Constructed out of stainless steel, the men's Rolex Air-King 5500 is an excellent choice for entry-level collectors.

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....
