One of the more seldom seen classic vintage Rolex watches is the Oyster Precision as Rolex made most watches of this style with a date.
It features a much thinner profile than the Perpetual models - its understated, elegant and classic design contrasts the "busier" look of some of the modern Rolex watches.
And this Oyster Precision has a little larger diameter than an Oysterdate and Oyster Perpetual non-Datejust watches - it's diameter is just one millimeter smaller than a Datejust.
Today's offering proudly showcases this impressive Certified Pre-Owned mens Rolex Oyster watch in gorgeous restored condition. It has been previously aftermarket custom painted with the Domino's Pizza logo.
In Rolex collecting circles, Domino’s is well-known for giving away Rolex's emblazoned with the company's logo on the dial. Beginning in the 1970's, Domino's began incentivizing its franchisees with Rolex watches after Domino’s Pizza founder and CEO Tom Monaghan gave a high-earning franchise owner the watch off his wrist. In his 1986 autobiography, Pizza Tiger, Monaghan wrote, “I wore a Bulova with our Domino’s logo on its face. A franchisee asked what he had to do to get that watch from me, and I told him, ‘Turn in a twenty-thousand-dollar sales week.’ He did it.”
The Rolex watches given away were generally non-date models.
Powering the watch is its original Rolex Caliber 1215 handwound movement with shock resistance
It has just finished a true expertly done restoration and presents in gorgeous condition. It has all of its original parts and presents as a 9.7 out of 10!
Its case presents as gorgeous mint with nice beefy lugs. Its Rolex dial has been meticulously restored and previously custom painted - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration, it has just been freshly overhauled by a Master Watchmaker (a $695 value). It is running strong and true, keeping time essentially on par with a brand new Rolex in our testing recording position.
For the finishing touch, we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
