Pre-Owned Watch Condition Examination

This pre-owned Rolex watch is in overall excellent pre-owned condition with only minor surface wear to the caseback.

Vintage Rolex Air-King 5501 - Steel and Gold 

By Paul Altieri

This rare and very fine Rolex Air-King presents the case in brushed steel and wears on a complimentary leather strap bracelet, allowing it to maintain a very attractive preowned Rolex price. The ref. 5501 also showcases a very desirable fluted bezel in yellow gold as well as a striking silver linen dial topped with elegant index hour markers, long, sword-shaped hands, an Air-King and Rolex logo at 12 o'clock, and luminous plots in a golden patina. As a member of the Oyster Perpetual family, the Air-King also boasts an initial waterproofness of up to 100 meters and a Perpetual movement with self-winding technology.

    Bob’s process was great

    The watch was perfect condition and matched the picture. My watch looks new and works like a Rolex. Bob’s delivered within 48 hours and the entire process was easy and smooth. I have ordered two watches from Bob’s and I’m very satisfied.

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.

    Superb site and transaction, phenominal delivery time. Some slight confusion concerning the special discount at the time. I didn't receive it. No big deal I would not hesitate to purchase another rolex from Bob's ! ***

    The purchasing process was quick and easy once I finally made my selection. Bob’s customer service was excellent. All my questions and concerns were addressed to my satisfaction. But most important of all, my husband loves his new watch!
