Rolex 18K White Gold Oyster Perpetual Day-Date with White 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 Patizzi 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 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is classic. It is as iconic as it is synonymous with the name Rolex. A watch firmly associated with achievement. Something to work towards, mark milestones, and enjoy forever. This stunning example features a sleek white Buckley luminova dial with black roman numeral markers, matching black luminova hands.This watch (reference 1803) has an 18K white gold fluted bezel, acrylic crystal, and Rolex 1556 automatic movement. It is from the mid 1970s and comes fitted on a handmade black cordovan leather strap. A must for any Buckley dial collector. Includes a letter of authenticity from Veralet.
