WE CONSISTENTLY SELL THE LOWEST PRICED GENUINE ROLEX WATCHES ON THE WEB. Guaranteed to be as described and satisfaction guaranteed, this is a very nice Rolex watch. It is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual AIR-KING stainless steel mens sized watch with it's a silver dial and a new lamb leather strap. This beautiful watch has a classic Rolex cal.It has been appreciating in value for decades and will only continue. Model number 5500 serial number: 2440xxx c. This watch will come with our sales receipt with model number, serial number, and authenticity noted. It will also come our Certificate of Authenticity (COA). Last week the Perpetual winding Rolex signed cal 1520 movement with sweeping seconds hand was fully inspected, it is running as it should. At that time the watch was thoroughly polished, satin refinished, and ultrasonically cleaned. The case measures 34 mm wide excluding the crown (it's an average sized mens watch for the time period, it is mid sized by today's standards and looks gread on modern ladies also). The winding crown is the original twin lock screw down crown with the Rolex logo.
The crown screws down nice and tight. The case back shows no wear, pitting or improper tool use. The band is a brand new non-Rolex brand quality French made supple Lamb leather strap.
The dial is very nicely and evenly aged with an honest survivor look. The texture on the dial is like sand blasting. I have never seen this texture on an original Rolex dial from this time period, yet the printing looks original, the patina is consistent with that of a watch from 1970, the lume does not glow and it matches the lume in the hands, and it just looks original. I can not swear that this dial has never been refinished, to be sure to error on the safe side we will call it a very professional older refinish job. The pictures have been taken from every angle and represent the watch well, in fact they are 3x magnified, the dial is beautiful, and the watch is polished to a perfect shine.
Any imperfections you see in the shine are just reflections the camera caught. This is a beautiful example of this model. EVERY MAJOR PART ON THIS WATCH IS GENUINE ROLEX EXCEPT FOR THE BAND.
