1980 Rolex Datejust Ref. 16030 “Buckley” Dial
The Rolex Datejust is a timeless and iconic timepiece known for its elegant design and precision. Originally introduced in 1945, the Datejust was the first self-winding wristwatch to display the date in a window on the dial, a groundbreaking feature at the time. Its classic design, characterized by the signature cyclops lens over the date window, has made it a symbol of style and sophistication. The Datejust has undergone various updates and iterations over the years, each maintaining the brand's commitment to excellence.
One notable reference in the Rolex Datejust line is the 16030. Launched in the late 1970s, the Reference 16030 maintained the classic aesthetics of the Datejust while incorporating improvements in movement technology. With a stainless steel case and a sleek design, the 16030 became a favorite among Rolex enthusiasts. Notably, it featured the reliable Caliber 3035 movement and continued the tradition of displaying the date at 3 o'clock. This reference has become a sought-after vintage model, appreciated for its combination of heritage and performance.
Among the variations of the Rolex Datejust 16030, the “Buckley" dial holds a special place. Named after a well-known, New York based vintage watch dealer, John Buckley, the dial’s unique features and limited production figures struck him, and while not drastically popular in period, he quickly became the authority on this particular Datejust series.
This meticulously preserved 1980 Rolex Datejust 16030, with the now coveted Buckley dial, comes in a mint condition and is accompanied by its original box and papers.
