It's rumored that Hans Wilsdorf created the Rolex Air King during the height of WWII as a watch for the combat pilots of the British Royal Air Force. Equipped with Rolex's infamous waterproof Oyster case, the Air King was the perfect companion for even the most daring flights. Today, the Air King is highly revered as a quality Rolex timepiece, offered at an affordable price. Constructed out of resilient stainless steel, the Air King is the ideal companion for everyday wear. The vintage Rolex reference 5500 utilizes a steel Oyster case, Oyster bracelet, and Fliplock clasp. When paired with a contrasting black dial, the reference 5500 becomes a striking statement piece for any occasion.

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....
