Rolex vintage Air-King 5500 with an original ultra rare “3,6,9 Waffle Dial”, 34mm stainless steel case, smooth bezel and a rare waffle dial which features a raised gold dagger head hour markers, 3,6, 9 Arabic gold numerals and original sword shaped hands. Fitted to the original fold over oyster link bracelet with double folding clasp. Rolex Air-King 5500’s were made for over 35 years, during the first few years of production many unique and rare dial configurations were manufactured until they were set to standard uniformed dials in the 1970s. The 5500’s were produced with the 1520 / 1530 calibre movement, our watch is powered by the calibre 1530 movement. Our totally immaculate and original example was manufactured in 1963 with a 971 serial number. Currently we cannot find another example with this rare dial option for sale worldwide as most were changed at Rolex service centres for plain baton dials, thus making this very rare and collectable.
