Rolex 5500
Air-King "Very Rare Dial"
"Two Colour" Silver & Gilt

Year 1962 Stock no. 12344


One of the rarest Air-Kings we've ever published, this beautiful Rolex 5500 from 1962 was born with a gorgeous glossy black dial with the famous recessed gilt text and silver printing, a combination that appeared on a select few über rare subs & GMT's of the period. The original lume has aged to a perfectly rich brown tone that is perfectly matched across the hands and markers, typical of this era when Rolex switched their luminous compound from Radium to Tritium. A perfect blend of sporty understatement, collectors rarity and rugged reliability.
