Description

For sale is a mens vintage Role Air-King Date reference 5700 automatic wristwatch with date. The watch features an all stainless steel case with screw in back, original dial, date, original acrylic crystal, center seconds hand, screw down crown, new leather strap, and a caliber 1530 butterfly rotor movement with 25 jewels. The watch measures 34 mm without the crown (35 mm in actuality but Rolex classifies it as 34 mm), 43 mm lug tip to tip, 19 mm lug width, and 12.2 mm case thickness.

We just serviced the watch in our shop, it is in good working order and keeps good time. The case was most likely polished at some point, although we did only cleaning when we serviced the watch. One of the numbers between the lugs on the reference is slightly faded from the original bracelet rubbing against it for many years. The dial is original and has a slight eggshell patina. The round luminous plots have mostly flaked off. The dial has some scratches. The hands are original and the lume has aged. The crystal is original but was polished to remove most of the finer scratches. The case has some wear on the inside of the lugs, some fine surface scratches and some minor dings. The leather strap is new (non Rolex). The watch does not come with box or papers.
