The Rolex 5500 Oyster Perpetual Air King is an excellent gateway into Rolex ownership. It's instantly recognizable, and it also boasts a very affordable price point. When it comes to buying an entry-level vintage Rolex watch, the Air King ref. 5500 is hard to beat. This watch also exudes sophistication and charm with an older-style case and bracelet, silver dial decorated with Tritium lume, and a thicker acrylic crystal. It looks exceptional on the wrist anywhere you roam, whether you're running errands around town, playing a round of golf, or attending an exclusive black-tie soiree.

Watch arrived overnight and exactly as advertised. Makenzie was terrific and made the purchase seamless. Can't say enough about Bob's quality and customer service.
The watch was in exquisite condition, superior to what was shown in the photos. The person who assisted me with the process was patient and very helpful.
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....
