The Rolex "Air-King" is beloved by so many collectors particularly because of its clear-cut plainness; there are, nevertheless, many different variations of this model. The most famous and sought-after "Air-King" is of course the "Rolex Air King 5500", whose design has remained untouched over many years – this makes it a classic and highly desirable timepiece. This watch has a nicely patinated silvered dial and hands. In February 2021 the watch was given a general overhaul by a Rolex retailer.
