Rolex Air-King 5500 with ADWOC Dial:

 

The rare and unique Rolex Air-King 5500 features an original ADWOC printed logo dial from 1983. Arab Drilling and Workover Company are located in Tripoli, the capital of Lybia, and the watch would have originally been presented to a member of staff or as a gift to a customer. In the early 1980's Rolex produced a number of dials with company logos, team/event logos, military insignias, and Middle Eastern rulers' signatures over the years. This particular Rolex Air-King 5500 remains in outstanding condition and running perfectly having recently been serviced by a Rolex specialist.

Watch Details: 34mm stainless steel case with polished bezel. T SWISS T silver sunburst dial with yellow gold hour marks and hands. Dial printed with ADWOC logo - Arab Drilling and Workover Company. Rolex calibre 1520 automatic movement. Oyster bracelet with folding clasp. Acrylic crystal. 

 

Rolex Air-King 5500 History.

 

The Rolex Air-King 5500 was released in 1957 and remained in production until it was replaced by the Rolex 14000 in 1989. The Air-King 5500 featured a 34mm stainless steel case with sunburst dial, domed acrylic crystal and automatic movement. The Air-King 5500 was fitted with the calibre 1520 and 1530 movement - depending on where the watch was originally purchased. US watches were powered by the 1520 due to import restrictions. As a general rule, if the watch dial is printed with 'Precision' it's running a calibre 1520, if it displays 'Super Precision' is powered by the 1530.
