The Rolex Air-King came to market in 1945 and was developed by Rolex as a nod to the pilots of the British Royal Air Force. Impressed by their bravery during the Battle of Britain, Hans Wilsdorf set out to create a line of pilot's watches to honor them, resulting in the Air-Series. The Air-King was the only model that endured. When it comes to clean and simple vintage references, it doesn't get any better than the ref. 5500 that we have listed here today. The case is topped with a smooth bezel and modest time-only function. Crafted from stainless steel, the case is resilient, affordable, and easy to wear almost anywhere. If you purchase just one Rolex, make it the vintage pre-owned Air-King that we have listed here today.

2nd time doing business with this excellent company
Very nice watch. I was very pleased with the entire transaction. This was my first purchase with BOB’S. Everything turned out better than I expected. I would recommend you guys to anyone interested in purchasing a pre owned watch. This watch will go well with my collection.
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....
