Gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King Precision Ref. 5500 vintage wristwatch, circa 1977

A fine 14ct yellow gold automatic centre seconds wristwatch with Rolex presentation case

This gold Rolex Air-King has a very handsome champagne dial that is in outstanding condition. The clarity of the dial’s design is enhanced by the gold baton indexes that have black panels to their centres which increase the contrast between the numerals and the dial surface. The 14ct yellow gold case is rich in tone and retains good definition the its angles and edges. Automatically wound, the watch is powered by Rolex’s calibre 1520 movement with 26 jewels. The accompanying green Rolex presentation case has a fitted brown suede interior.

This watch has been fitted with a handmade Christopher Clarke for Black Bough traditional dark brown lizard skin leather strap. As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been pressure tested for water-resistance up to 100 metres.
