Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Ref. 1601 Buckley Dial Circa 1976


This iconic Rolex Datejust, contains a fairly rare dial, The Buckley Dial.

As with many Rolex watch terms, Rolex wasn’t the creator. Furthermore, Rolex has not used this term to describe the dial either.

In fact, the name actually 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 renown and respect in the Rolex world, this dial type eventually started to be called after him.
