Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King Precision Ref. 5500 vintage wristwatch, sold in 1975

A fine stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with original certificate, instruction booklet, presentation case, outer card box and further paperwork 

Reference 5500 was first introduced in 1957 and is a classic automatically wound wristwatch with a robust Oyster case. This example is in lovely condition and is accompanied by its original Rolex guarantee certificate which shows that the watch was purchased from Watches of Switzerland in May 1975. The watch is also accompanied by its Rolex instruction booklet, service paperwork, presentation case and card outer box. Featuring a handsome satin finished silvered dial, the steel case is fitted with its original, detachable, Rolex Oyster steel link bracelet with adjustable folding clasp. Powered by an automatic Rolex calibre 1520, the movement has a useful hack feature which allows easy synchronisation to a time signal by stopping the seconds hand when the crown is pulled out to set the time – the seconds hand then re-starts as soon as the crown is pushed back in.
