The previously polished case shows very little wear from use. The Rolex 7835-19 Rivet bracelet With 257 End Links is in over all good condition showing some stretch from general use.


This "tropical" gilt dial on this Ref. 5500 Air-King is absolutely stunning and has taken a striking "stone marble like" appearance. The original T Swiss Made T dial shows depth and the vintage applied markers are classic and unique. The piece is very much striking when on the wrist and in the direct sunlight.
