FS: Vintage Rolex 5500 Air King

New Year - New Watches. Therefore, I unfortunately have to part with this classic.
Rolex Air King ref. 5500 with beautiful Dauphine hands and ‘non-precision’ SWISS only dial.

The watch is from the start of the 60s. It was purchased from a Swedish vintage dealer and has been serviced and got a brand new plexiglass and new gaskets.

The watch has a slight discoloration at. 1-2. Could indicate some corrosion, hard to spot with the naked eye.

The watch sits on a nice rivet 7205 bracelet. Personally, I think the bracelet emphasizes that Air King is a tool watch and gives it a rugged feel. Here, the dress watch and tool watch meet in the beautiful association. Search for Ryan Gosling and Air King 5500 :-)

The watch measures 34.5 cm

My price: 2350 Euros
