Rolex Air-King Date dating to 1971. This watch has a very uncommon and original pewter toned dial. There is some aging on the bottom edge of the dial, hardly worth mentioning, as it is barely visible with the naked eye. These AIR KING DATES are the “hot ROLEX watch” at least this time. This DATE variety of AIR KING that was sold mainly in Canada and Commonwealth countries only. The date is the feature making it uncommon; as the regular and common AIR KINGS do not have the date. The 35mm. stainless steel original ref.5500 ROLEX OYSTER case is without any major dings or flaws. The automatic winding ROLEX cal. 1520 movement was just cleaned and is accurate. I believe these watches will increase in value over time.
