The Rolex 5500 Air-King is a desirable edition of the iconic dress watch among collectors because it offers the exquisite styling of a classic vintage Rolex while maintaining an attractive price. The Air-King itself boasts prestigious origins as it was inspired by the pilots of the British Royal Air Force. It was initially a member of the Air Series of watches, which also included the Air-Tiger, Air-Giant, and Air-Lion. Today, the Air-King is the only model that remains in production. It boasts a classic Oyster case in 34mm, an all-steel finish, and a Perpetual movement with self-winding. This edition wears on a handsome leather strap bracelet and is emblazoned with a special logo.

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....
