Due to the popularity of other Rolex models among aviators, Rolex released a line of "Air-Series" watches that consisted of the Air-King, Air-Lion, Air-Grant, and Air-Tiger. Released in 1945 as a gift given to RAF pilots returning from combat, the Air-King is the only remaining model. A few years later Rolex introduced reference 5500. This classic watch celebrates the original design of the first Air-King with its sleek and sophisticated design. The durable 34mm Oyster case features a waterproof screw-down crown, allowing it to withstand high altitudes as well as depths of up to 330 feet. Adding to its durability is the fold over link Oyster bracelet made of resilient stainless steel. Fans of the original Air-King will appreciate the dial that is set with sleek index hour markers and features the name "Air-King" inscribed in the same classic font as its predecessors.
