The Rolex Air-King ref. 5500 that we have listed here today boasts immense character and history. Developed in 1945, the men's Rolex 5500 was one of four watches in the Rolex Air Series, which was initially inspired by the pilots of the British Royal Air Force. Sleek, sophisticated, and classy, the Air-King boasts a stainless steel Oyster case measuring 34mm, a smooth bezel, and a three-piece link Oyster bracelet. A waterproof screw-down crown, a secure Fliplock clasp, and a protective crystal over the dial offer a secure and reliable hold. The particular ref. 5500 also features a beautifully aged dial topped with matching index hour markers, central hands, and minimal text.

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....
