History:“In the late 1950s, Rolex offered a version of the Air-King ref. 5500 with an Explorer dial. As a result, this particular model is often referred to as the Explorer ref. 5500 despite the Air-King case. Therefore, the Explorer ref. 5500 is also 34mm in size. This is noticeably smaller than the traditional 36mm size of the Explorer ref. 6610 and the Explorer ref. 1016 watches of the same era.
The face of the Explorer ref. 5500 features the typical black gilt dial, the 3, 6, and 9 Arabic numerals, in addition to, the stick indexes and the inverted triangle. This time, under the Rolex logo, the “EXPLORER” name is clearly on display. There are also the Mercedes-style hands—characteristic of the Explorer collection, not the Air-King model—as well as the “lollipop” seconds hand. The T
Similar to the Air-King, there are both Precision and Super Precision editions of the Explorer ref. 5500.
There are also some ultra-rare examples with a line under the “SUPER PRECISION” text. Furthermore, there are some instances where the dial includes a double T 25"THIS is the “ultra-rare” example mentioned above. No box or papers.Make sure to check my other listings, I have a few beauty’s for sale!Don’t miss out!
