Other: Is this the most ironic vintage Rolex? It certainly has to be one of them... Here we have Rolex as one of the world's most prestigious, luxurious, and valuable companies on the planet, featuring a cheap Pizza chain logo on the dial! But how did these watches come about? You can read the juicy details all over the web from publications like Gear Patrol, Bob's Watches, and even GQ (yes, having a Domino's Pizza logo on your Rolex is a serious flex). This particular watch came directly from the wife of the original owner of a Domino's Pizza franchise and it remains totally honest, original, and unpolished. This collector-grade example happens to be our favorite execution of all of the Domino's Pizza variations. It features a more unique and desirable "tilted" logo with vintage Tritium lume, but you get more modern wearability out of the solid Oyster bracelet and sapphire crystal. Whenever possible, we recommend purchasing a Domino's Pizza Rolex with its original paperwork and/or the original caseback engraving in tact from "T.S.M." (Domino's Pizza Founder, Thomas Stephen Monaghan). This ensures the authenticity and provenance of the award watch.
