Vintage Rolex Air-King 5500

By Paul Altieri

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.

At Bob's we authenticate, purchase and service all of our watches thereby ensuring the integrity of every Rolex we sell. All service is performed by an authorized Rolex service provider with only genuine Rolex parts used. Any watch listed on our website is in store and ready for free overnight shipping.  Bob's Watches: 100% genuine Rolex.

    1963 Rolex Air King

    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.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    Smooth and fast transaction, love the watch and saved $1800 over new on a watch less than a year old!

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
