Referred to by many as the ‘Warrior Watch’, the Rolex Air-King has a rich, fascinating history extending back to the 1930s. Manufactured originally to pay homage to Royal Airforce pilots during the Second World War, the Air-King has evolved into a symbol of utmost finesse, prestige and importance. This particular model from 1969 incorporates many elements of hallmark Rolex design, including its crisp silver dial, offset beautifully by a 9ct gold case. Measuring at a standard 34mm diameter, this 5500 model sits comfortably on the wrist with a certain head-turning charm. Most notably it comes alongside its original box and guarantee paperwork, showing a purchase date of 04/06/1969. This full set treasure from of the world’s most recognisable watch brands retains the classic finesse of Rolex models of the late sixties, presented on a contemporary vintage style leather strap.
