The iconic Rolex Air King was introduced to the market in 1945. Reference 5500 was first introduced in 1957 with its 34mm case, and remained a staple in the collection for over three decades until it was replaced by reference 14000 in 1989. The present example features a silvered dial adorned with the signature of the prestigious retailer, Cartier. This iconic and rare example of the firm's beloved model is the perfect everyday wristwatch to add to one's collection.
The watch is in overall good condition with light wear throughout commensurate with age. The movement is running at the time of cataloging, however, it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
Fits a wrist size of 7.5 inch or smaller.
