Rolex Oyster Perpetual vintage Air-King 5500. The very early 5500 series had an optional rare dial variation with both Arabic 3,6,9 numerals and dagger/arrow head hour markers. It also featured a metal ‘Rolex’ signature rather than being printed. Rolex Air-King 5500’s were made for over 35 years with the 1520 / 1530 calibre movement. During the production run it is believed that importation laws would restrict how many jewels could be fitted to some of the movements making the piece rare and collectable. Our one owner watch is in totally immaculate condition, comes with official Rolex service history dated 2014 and we even have the ORIGINAL receipt! The watch was UK supplied new in 1968 however the caseback is stamped 1965… 132**** serial number.
