Rolex Datejust Reference 1603 Cream Buckley Dial

The cat gets the cream…

We have another cool Datejust fitted with an example of the so-called Buckley dial; a watch named after New York based watch dealer John Buckley who loved these painted Roman dials so much that collectors named them after him!

This example has a white dial that has turned a cream or panna cotta colour with striking black roman numerals with black hands. The hands have been changed over time to lumina, but look very matching in normal light. The case is in great condition with a funky engine turned bezel. The Jubilee bracelet is in good condition. The watch has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.
