Why on earth would someone want a 30 year old air-king 5500 emblazoned with the logo of some of the worst pizza on earth for $3000 when you can get the same watch for $2000+/- without the logo.  Better yet, just spend $3500 and get a 5 year old (or less) Oyster Perpetual 116000?

People pay more for old comic books.

Whatever floats your boat...

Oh, and while I’m no fan of Domino’s, someone that calls it some of the worst pizza on Earth, clearly has not had some of the worst pizza on Earth...

If I successfully sued Dominos for food poisoning, I’d pay $3k for a Dominos Rolex...

Yeah..but for a Rolex to be truly collectible, you want box, papers, all original and not polished.  This Christies example is batting 0/4.  It’s not just about being old.  Most of the domino watches on Chrono 24 and other sites just sit and sit and sit.  Of course, someone will pay over the odds for this one just because it’s Christies.  A much better example (if dominos Rolex are your thing) recently went for less on EBay.

If it was an old Explorer, Submariner or Daytona, sure.  But there really isn’t anything overly special about the basic OP (datejust, no date, whatever).

 

Feel free to bid on it however.

You have clearly confused me with someone that has an interest in a Dominos watch.

Papaya Watch are still around. They have a shop in MBK (2/F), and Central World (4/F).

Looked at the MBK shop on Tuesday.

 

Some good watches but imho not cheap.

I've always liked the Dominos Air Kings, and also the Pool Intairdril ones. It's a shame Rolex won't supply dual logo's anymore.

 

In general, Bangkok is just not a good place to get a good value deal on a Rolex though, I wouldn't bother. Some of the shops in MBK, the one's selling genuine watches actually have signs up saying their prices will be more than in your home country to stop so many people asking and then being disappointed. People assume Thailand = cheap, maybe 20 years ago there were bargains but not now.

 

I'd also rather have a Grand Seiko (important distinction, GRAND Seiko, not Seiko) tbh, in fact that's what I did and sold all my Rolexes apart from one. FYI my Grand Seiko cost more than the equivalent Rolex in 2015 and was technically better in pretty much every measurable way apart from water resistance depth. The level of finishing, detail and quality is far superior. Rolex have introduced and are rolling out a new movement through their ranges since then though which is more on a level with the Grand Seiko movements.

The you would be wasting money!

 

"Rolex is a bit pricey for service, but it is worth it. They put your watch in their international computer system and if it is stolen or whatnot and comes for servicing they get it back. They also warranty the repairs for a year, good at any Rolex service center. They also pressure test the watches, which not all watchmakers can do. "

 

"Only official Rolex retailers are allowed to sell and maintain a Rolex. They guarantee the authenticity of each and every part of your Rolex, not to mention its reliability over time, helping you make the choice that will last a lifetime."

 

If the official Rolex shops here sold dodgy watches or did shoddy repairs, first they would lose their customers and second they would lose their Rolex licence.

 

You are really doing nothing more than scaremongering with absolutely no basis.

Don't get so upset....was plainly suggesting for those who can afford the trip to be extra cautious.

 

And all that glitters is not always gold, even in Europe or Thailand. Even in countries like in Spain, Italy or France, there are cheats. Up to you if you want to get scammed or not. Have a nice day.

I don't intend to derail the thread, but Parnis makes excellent replicas. If you can afford a genuine brand name go for it. I cannot! So, the Parnis satisfies my desire to collect a few. I have a seiko 5 too.
