Introduction

Rolex has been known to produce customized dials for corporate customers up until the early 2000s, and this may just be the most famous of them all. Given to franchisees who have exceeded certain sales targets, these fun and cheerful watches have been coveted not only by Domino's franchisees, but collectors alike. The first models ever given as awards were the reference 5500 Air-Kings in the 1970s. Whilst Rolex is still the preferred choice for award watches at Domino's, the new iterations no longer feature the red, white and blue logos on the dials.

THE LOGO

Just as recognizable as Coca-Cola or Pepsi, the Domino's Pizza logo features prominently at the 6 o'clock position on the dial. The three dots in the logo represent the first 3 locations of the restaurant, and the overall view is intended to illustrate a pizza box.

THE ACCESSORIES

This example comes complete with all its original paperwork, including booklets, guarantee certificate and hang tag.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

The Condition

The overall condition is exceptional. The bezel and case are very sharp and show no indication of polishing. The caseback has light hairline scratches, in particular on the glossy section. The bracelet has a few needlelike abrasions on the buckle. It exhibits no signs of stretching.

Our Perspective

A dash of kitsch, a splash of color, the Domino's Air-King is certainly a charming relic of Americana. In practically new condition, this one certainly is a stunner. There's only two ways of procuring one of these -buying one here, or selling a heck of a lot of pizzas.
