Catalogue Note

The AirKing reference 5500 is one of the most iconic models that Rolex has produced. Although being in Rolex’s production for 37 years, minimal changes were made to this collection of watches. This eventually led to the reference 5500 being one of the more classic watches of Rolex.

With a clean and well preserved dial, the present lot is a fine example which displays the simple and yet refined design from the 70s.
