ロレックス エアキング 5500 スーパー プレシジョン To the Rolex Air King 5500 Super Precision article )

Air-King Ref.5500, which is a typical introduction to Vintage Rolex.

Among the many Rolex models, Air King has a long history, first appearing in the 1940s.

Also, it is a model with the oldest existing pet name (nickname).

Ref.5500 was manufactured for about 30 years from the late 1950s to the end of the 1980s.

One of the features of Air King is that it is basically a simple self-winding 3-hand watch without a date.

Especially for the vintage model, it can be said that it is a design that is extremely simple with 3 hands without date in a slightly small case of 34 mm.

This watch was made in 1962, which can be said to be the early days of Air King. The

case is unlikely to be 60 years old, and you won't feel any thinning due to polishing.

The dial is an ivory dial, but you can see good aging.

You may be worried about the lumpy part in the photo, but the real thing is well organized and has a good vintage feel.

It also features a wedge index, which is rare for an air king, an alpha hand, a blue steel second hand, and features found in the 1950s and 1960s.

Compared to the simple air king of the bar index, I think that it is addictive to those who want a more vintage look.

The movement equipped with

is Cal.1530, which is self-winding.

All Rolex movements are great, but the 1500 series is said to have laid the foundation for the Rolex movement that continues to this day.

The

bracelet is fitted with a rivet bracelet 7205. It's so light that I forget to put it on.

It is called "Debeso buckle" because the crown of the clasp part is protruding.

The current length is 12 frames and can handle up to about 18.5 cm.

In 2019, Service has been completed at the Oku Clock Shop, which is an official Rolex Technology store in Japan. A service warranty is attached.
