An excellent example of the Rolex Perpetual Air King reference 5500. Often referred to as the "Warrior Watch", the Air King's clean lines, reliable movement and 34mm case makes it a popular choice among collectors looking for a timeless piece at a reasonable price. 

This reference 5500 hails from circa 1983 and is powered by the automatic calibre 1520. Its silver dial, minimalist batton hour markers and 34mm Oyster case makes for a timeless classic.

This particular watch is fitted to a signed Oyster bracelet with Oysterclasp and has recently undergone a full service to insure its working order. A great watch that will be sure to get plenty of wrist time with its new owner!
