A crisp example of a used Rolex Air-King Super Precision and a true vintage Rolex classic.
The all steel Oyster case, reference 5500, is in super clean condition.
The all original dial is accented with large steel Arabic Explorer style numerals and arrowhead markers with original dauphine hands. There is microscopic patina on the dial and light oxidization just around the edges of the steel markers, ensuring authenticity of the dial and hands.
The case serial number dates this watch to 1962. This vintage Rolex uses an acrylic crystal and is fitted with a Rolex Automatic Perpetual movement, calibre 1530, the same movement found in vintage Rolex Submariners like the early 5512, 5508 and the famed 5510 big crown model.
The watch will be shipped fully serviced and tested by my Rolex trained watchmaker.
The case measures 34 mm wide by 39.5 mm long and the watch is supplied on a leather strap. I would be happy to supply the watch with a vintage Rolex Oyster bracelet, please email for the additional cost.
