Gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King Precision Ref. 5500 vintage wristwatch, hallmarked 1967

A 9ct yellow gold automatic centre seconds wristwatch with sprung Rolex Oyster gold plated bracelet

This Rolex Air-King has a solid 9ct yellow gold case which is hallmarked for the year 1967. The case retains good definition with clear hallmarking to the underside of the lugs. The silvered, satin finished dial is in excellent condition and features slim gold baton indexes. This watch is sold with its original gold plated Rolex Oyster bracelet which has sprung riveted links and is date stamped for 1967, the same year as the gold hallmarks to the watch case itself. As with all versions of the 5500 Air-King, the bracelet of this model can be detached and replaced with a leather strap (as illustrated in the primary image) if preferred.

Rolex introduced the ‘Air-King’ Ref. 5500 in 1957 and the majority of pieces examples were made in stainless steel. The model is favoured for its automatic movement and classic Rolex styling.
