Not quite as famous as other models in the Rolex lineup, the Air-King is often overlooked by serious collectors, which is a shame because it's a pretty intriguing piece of Rolex history. Its form is similar to the Oyster Perpetual with a 34mm Oyster case, a self-winding movement with a time-only function, and an overall sophisticated style. The Air-King itself came to market in 1945 and was an homage to the pilots of the British Royal Airforce that fought in the Battle of Britain. Other references also joined the ranks of what Rolex refers to as the "Air Series" of watches and include the Air-Lion, Air-Giant, and Air-Tiger. The used Rolex Air-King ref. 5500 is in versatile stainless steel and will quickly become your new go-to vintage piece.

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!!
As promised. Was able to replace lost/stolen Long beloved watch with close approximation.
Love the simplistic, lux, classic, and timeless look to the Airking.
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
