A rarity, given that the majority of Rolex Air-King, reference 5500, were manufactured in steel, this example has a 9k yellow gold hallmarked case with 123*** serial dating to late 1965 and a 9k yellow gold Rolex RWCo riveted expanding bracelet, dated 1966. The condition of the case, dial and hands are highly original as is the bracelet. The bracelet shows signs of use and the expanding links do have some wear in places, to be expected given the year. This example comes with original sales display tag in thick paper, handwritten with serial number, as well as original box and service papers from Rolex UK dated 1974. A perfect set for the collector.
