Our Opinion

Offered here is a superb example of the Rolex Datejust Buckley Dial Ref. 1601 in Stainless Steel manufactured circa 1969.

This example has the correct white Buckley dial with date aperture for its 210---- serial number.
History of the Rolex Buckley dial with painted roman numerals.
The Buckley dial is mostly found on vintage Datejust models from the late 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. It is believed that the references 1601, 1603, 16014, and 16030 were the primary models to feature Buckley dials.

The name comes from John Buckley, a vintage watch dealer in New York, who owns the company, Tuscany Rose. Buckley is a true watch expert and because of his reputation and respect in the Rolex world, this dial type eventually started to be named after him.

Normally, you will find that Roman Rolex dials have applied markers and not painted like the Buckley dial. Some state that the dial type was made for people who have trouble reading time with the polished markers. During the time the Buckley dials were in production, they were not particularly popular, which means today, they are very desirable and relatively rare.

The overall condition of this vintage Datejust is very good. The case appears to have been very lightly polished in the past, but still retains strong equal lugs and the brushed finish to the top edges remain very well defined, the white gold fluted bezel has no dents or scratches and compliments the overall appearance of this Buckley Dial 36mm Datejust. The white stepped dial is in stunning condition with the tritium hour plots taking on some patina, the black roman numerals and white gold hands give the overall appearance of a stunning vintage Rolex Datejust. The Plexiglass is the correct Top Hat style inclusive of the Cyclops date window for this model, it is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.

The watch comes on a later Rolex Jubilee solid link bracelet reference 62510 and 555 end links. The bracelet is showing only light wear and minor stretch.

The watch is also complimented with a Rolex box.
