Rolex 18K Yellow Gold Oyster Perpetual Datejust with Blue Buckley Dial
The story goes like this. Ten years ago, John Buckley, a vintage Rolex dealer, took to the watch forums. At a time when collectors were most focused on Daytona Patrizzi and Paul Newman Daytona dials, John was interested in the less popular and less common Rolex dials with painted roman numeral markers. In an attempt at humor and self-promotion, John declared these dials were henceforth to be known as “Buckley” dials. It stuck. Over time, Buckley dials have become more popular as collectors started seeking out the exotic Buckley dials in a variety of colors. Today, outside of Rolex sport models, the Buckley dial is the only dial that is recognized with a moniker across the internet, in literature, and in auction catalogues.
The classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust is the perfect watch for all occasions. Featuring a rare and pristine blue Buckley dial with gold roman numeral markers, matching gold hands, and perfect creamy luminous plots, this watch is truly a work of art. This watch (reference 16018) has an 18K yellow gold fluted bezel, sapphire crystal, and Rolex 3035 automatic quickset movement. It comes fitted on a Rolex 18K yellow gold jubilee bracelet with hidden clasp. A must for any Buckley dial collector. This is the ultimate addition to your collection. Includes a letter of authenticity and one-year limited warranty on the movement of the watch from Veralet.
