Why We Love it

This is no ordinary Air-King…but more on that in a moment. 

What exactly makes an Air-King? The proportions are perfect, the movement robust and the styling timeless. It’s not hard to make the argument that the Air-King is one of the most versatile time-only watches on the market, as all it takes is a strap change to transform this watch from go-to tuxedo accoutrement to a field watch or BBQ grill timer. When you factor in that the Air-King is available in a broad variety of dial color configurations, the appeal grows even more.

This particular example, however — a Reference 14000 — is special. Its satin silver tritium dial with baton indices is signed with the ‘Domino’s Pizza’ logo. Why this particular late-night munchies provider? Glad you asked: For a time, branch managers were incentivized toward various sales goals with a Rolex Air King — hit your goal, win a watch. Not a bad system, if you ask us! These watches aren’t easy to come by in good, correct condition, making this Reference 14000 a rare bird, indeed.

This particular example dates to circa 1997 and features a 34mm stainless steel Oyster case, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, a polished steel bezel, an automatic Rolex Calibre 3000 movement and a matching stainless steel Oyster bracelet with a signed blade clasp.

In simply outstanding condition overall and shipping with its ephemera, it’s a wildly cool find, perfect for Rolex collectors and fans of late-night pizza.

Don’t sleep on it!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing light signs of wear from gentle use. Satin silver Tritium dial with applied indices is in as-new condition with matching handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Though much younger than many of its heavy-hitting horological cousins, Rolex has been at the fore of contemporary watch design virtually since its inception in 1905 by founder Hans Wilsdorf. A veritable marketing genius, Wilsdorf understood the power of story, associating his watches with the most notable and intrepid athletes, explorers, soldiers and politicians of the 20th century. His efforts were clearly successful: Today, the word “Rolex” is nearly synonymous in the minds of millions around the word with “watch.”

From the early waterproof Oyster case of the 1920s through to the ultra-complicated Sky Dweller of today, Rolex models and innovations have captivated a global audience and permeated the zeitgeist unlike those of any other brand. Whether it’s a simple, time-only Air King, a function-first Submariner or a complicated GMT Master II for the jet set, a Rolex commands a certain respect on the wrist and says something about the discerning eye of its owner.

From the swimming of the English channel in 1927 to the scaling of Mt. Everest in 1953, Rolex watches have been associated with adventure for the better part of a century. Despite its association since the 1970s more with luxury and status than with commando operations behind enemy lines or sporting achievements, Rolex still makes one of the most robust timepieces available on the contemporary market. And the company continues to support scientific endeavors around the world.

Interestingly, for most of the firm’s history, Rolex largely did not produce its components in-house, including its movements. (Indeed, hand-wound Daytonas sold today at auction for eye-watering prices feature run-of-the-mill Valjoux movements that feature in watches from hundreds of other brands). It wasn’t until the early 21st century that Rolex became the vertically integrated manufacturing behemoth that it is today, purchasing everything from movement manufacturers to bracelet companies. (Notably, the Crown even forges its own gold.)

Whether one is attracted to the rich history of the brand or simply finds its products notable from an investment perspective, Rolex is a company whose wares are guaranteed to remain a benchmark for horological quality forever.
