Rolex Air-King 5500

It’s a well-known fact that the Pilots of the British Royal Air Force often preferred to wear Rolex Oyster Perpetual timepieces over their military-issued watches. The Oyster case was notoriously tough, and when paired with the perpetual movement within, Rolex watches were simply more reliable. Hans Wilsdorf was inspired by the loyalty of these pilots towards his brand when he created the Rolex Air-King. Just like the pilots that the watch was modeled after, the Air-King was tough, reliable, and sophisticated. Just like other Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches, the case was waterproof up to 330 feet and featured a self-winding movement. The particular reference 5500 that we have for sale here today also features a stainless steel Oyster bracelet and Fliplock clasp.

Silver Dial Rolex Air-King 5500 Steel Oyster

Length of ownership: 1 day-1 week

Pros: Love the simplistic, lux, classic, and timeless look to the Airking.

Cons: Watch band is a bit dodgy. For the price, it has the same band as lower end watches. Very low end. No weight to it at all, almost feels aluminum.
