Air-King 5500 appeared in 1957 and continued until 1989. The model entices by its
minimalism, without date. This is a collection whose name was born from a desire of Hans
Wilsdorf to honor the RAF pilots who fought in the WWII Battle of Britain in 1950. Some of
these pilots had Rolex Oyster on their wrists.
We appreciate the Air-King for its sublime minimalism, without date, enhanced here by onyx hour markers and all its tritium points intact. This is indeed a watch in great condition that comes with its folded Oyster type steel bracelet.
