By Paul Altieri
Reference 5500 is a beloved edition of the cult favorite Rolex Air King. In addition to boasting a timeless, all-steel design, ref. 5500 also offers the exclusivity of the Rolex brand without breaking the bank. In fact, most examples on the used Rolex market today are relatively affordable. As the Rolex brand stands to hold its value well, this Air-King ref. 5500 is an attractive investment proposition for collectors of all levels. At 34mm in diameter and only offered in stainless steel, ref. 5500 is also luxurious without appearing too flashy and, thus, is suitable for just about any activity or occasion. The example for sale here is oozing with vintage charm, featuring Tritium lume in a creamy patina, an older-style acrylic crystal, and retro hour markers and hands.

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.
The watch was in exquisite condition, superior to what was shown in the photos. The person who assisted me with the process was patient and very helpful.
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....
