It's rumored that Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf developed the Air-King wristwatch after hearing that the brave pilots of the British Royal Air Force often chose to wear their personal Rolex watches over their military-issued timepieces. He set out to produce a line that was accurate, sophisticated, and affordable, and the Air Series was born. The Air-King is the only member of the Air-Series that remains in production today and is a widely sought-after collector's item. The ref. 5500 boasts an incredible production run of nearly forty years and is widely available on the preowned Rolex market in a variety of feature sets. The example that is presented here today runs on a calibre 1520 Perpetual movement and pairs the stainless steel finish with a matching silver dial topped with silver indices and hands.

Accurate description of watch. Purchase was straight forward. Watch was delivered quickly. Would/will buy from Bob’s again.
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!!
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
