Rolex Air King Ref. 5500

A surgical clean design.

The Rolex Air-King was introduced in 1945 with a specific public; pilots. Of course, we all know the GMT-master which is a pretty legendary pilots watch, but the air king wasn’t built as the functional friend to pilots on intercontinental flights. It was a watch which was often given to pilots as a token of appreciation when they retired or if they had successfully completed a certain challenge. Over the years the Air-King has evolved, but it always has been the Rolex whose simplicity is its charming character.

This piece that we’re offering has the cleanest composition imaginable. It starts with the silver coloured dial, timeless and uniforms with the stainless steel case and bracelet. Next, a domed bezel, this one is spotless and more modest compared to a fluted one. The oyster bracelet finishes this piece and this one still has got a long life ahead of itself.

Visit our store to see this clean and fine watch, among many others. We’re located in the Reestraat, Amsterdam.
