Rolex Datejust Reference 1600 Blue Buckley Dial


When a Roman is known as Buckley…

We are always delighted to offer Datejusts that are fitted with examples of the so-called Buckley dial; a watch named after New York based watch dealer John Buckley who was the original exponent of these funky dials. The blue dial in this example has fresh looking white roman numerals and it remains in nice original condition. The date wheel is original and has the open 6 and 9s. The case is in nice condition and we love these 1600s with the cool and sporty smooth bezel – it really gives the Datejust a different vibe. The folded Oyster bracelet ( we love the “light feeling on the wrist with these! )is in good used condition with a clasp stamped ‘M’. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
