This Air-King can be appreciated for its minimalism, dateless dial, here enhanced by hour markers with onyx, the presence of all its tritium points. A watch in very good condition that comes with its Oyster type steel bracelet.
ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL AIR-KING
Rolex 1520 automatique - Circa 1987
The Rolex Air-King reference 5500 appeared in 1957, and continued to be produced until 1989. The collection takes its name from a desire by Hans Wilsdorf to honor the RAF pilots who fought during the 1950s Battle of England in WWII, some of whom had Rolex Oysters on their wrists.
