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.

The watch was perfect condition and matched the picture. My watch looks new and works like a Rolex. Bob’s delivered within 48 hours and the entire process was easy and smooth. I have ordered two watches from Bob’s and I’m very satisfied.
