The men's Rolex Air-King ref. 5500 is a popular choice among entry-level vintage collectors, both for its affordable price and its classic style. The Air-King is incredibly easy to wear, offering a 34mm Oyster case on a three-link Oyster bracelet. The case is topped with a sophisticated smooth bezel and displays the time on a contrasting black dial set with silver indices and hands. While many collectors may choose to reserve this used Rolex for special occasions, it can be worn casually as well as with business attire. As a vintage piece, some waterproofness may have been lost, so great care must be taken not to damage the case or movement within if worn on a regular basis.

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....
