Description: Rolex Air-King 5500 Stainless Steel Oyster

Pre-owned Rolex Air-King ref 5500 (1979) is a member of Rolex's historic series of "Air" watches including the Air-Lion, Air-Tiger, and Air-Giant.  As its name would suggest, this model was designed as a pilot's watch and was inspired by the courageous feats of the British Royal Air Force.  The Oyster case is designed to withstand high altitudes as well as depths of up to 330 feet, making this timepiece an ideal companion for pilots.  The stainless steel case is topped with a smooth bezel and a silver dial set with index hour markers and sweeping hands.  The name model logo is written across the dial in a sophisticated font, adding to its classic design.  A sturdy Oyster bracelet made of flat stainless steel links and a accompanies the case and provides a secure hold whether you're soaring high above the clouds or playing a round of golf.

ROLEX AIR KING

Watch arrived overnight and exactly as advertised. Makenzie was terrific and made the purchase seamless. Can't say enough about Bob's quality and customer service.

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.

An Amazing Experience

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....
