Rolex Oyster Air King “Super Precision” ref 5504 circa 1959


A terrific looking gilt dial Rolex Air King ref 5504 serial# 452,xxx circa 1959. Featuring a 36mm diameter stainless steel case with smooth bezel, with a beautiful original gloss black, gilt dial with applied silver indexes and tapered silver, lume filled hands. Dial signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air King Super Precision. Powered by self winding calibre 1530 movement with sweep seconds.

In addition to the silver gilt print dial, the 5504 model has another unusual characteristic. Unlike the more common 5500 or 1002 Oyster Perpetual which measure 34mm and takes a 19mm bracelet, the much scarcer 5504 sports a larger 36mm diameter case takes a 20mm strap or bracelet, giving the watch a more robust appearance.

Serviced and detailed and offered with our usual 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Additionally, your watch purchase includes one of our fine glazed leather watch pouches, $55.00 if purchased separately, great for storage and travel.
