Rolex Air-King 5501 - Steel and Gold 

Sometimes referred to as the "Warrior Watch," the Rolex Air-King is known for its origins among the British Royal Air Force.  In fact, its design was directly inspired by their preference for Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches while flying their planes into combat.  Designed for flight, this vintage reference 5501 features a sturdy 34mm Oyster case that can also withstand higher altitudes while flying.  Its elegant design will take you back to another time with the addition of a fluted yellow gold bezel, a 5-piece link two-tone Jubilee bracelet, and a Fliplock clasp.  The silver dial features a simplistic design with gold index hour markers, sweeping hands topped with lume, and the name "Air-King" inscribed on the dial in a nostalgic font.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    Smooth and fast transaction, love the watch and saved $1800 over new on a watch less than a year old!

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
