One of the most affordable of the brand's watches, the Air-King is ideal for both beginner and seasoned Rolex collectors. The history of the Air-King is fascinating. It was designed by Rolex as a token of appreciation for the brave efforts of the British RAF pilots during the battle of Britain. The original model was designed with a sturdy Oyster case, resilient steel, and a perpetual movement that could effortlessly withstand high altitudes. The Oyster case was also waterproof up to 330 feet, making the Air-King durable on land or in the water. The model reference 5500 is built with the same high standards of durability and also features a sleek 5-piece link Jubilee bracelet and a dial that is set with matching index hour markers and hands. Fans of the original Air-King will be delighted by the inscription of the name "Air-King" in the same nostalgic font as the original model.
