Rolex Datejust Ref. 6916 Buckley

We are pleased to offer a rare and exquisite Datejust for the discerning female collector. Despite its small 26 mm size, this watch packs a significant horological punch. Crafted from 18k gold, it features the iconic ‘Buckley Dial,’ named after the New Yorker John Buckley.

The watch boasts a flawless white dial with black Roman numeral hour markers and matching black hands. All the lume dots are present and perfectly match the hand lume. The strong case remains in excellent condition.

For this elegant timepiece, we have chosen a sophisticated Croco strap. However, if you prefer a different material, type of leather, or color, we have an incredible collection of straps for you to choose from, allowing you to personalize it to your own style.

Backstory

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic watch designs ever made. We try not to use the term “iconic” too liberally, but it is surely justified here. Launched back in 1945 as the Ref. 4467, the design has been only marginally updated every now and then. And it has looked fresh and current ever since.

When it comes to vintage, two generations of Datejust are particularly popular; the Ref. 16xx and the later five-digit references. The 16xx models were made from the fifties until  roughly 1978 and feature a beautifully dimensional pie-pan dial. Many of these came on folded jubilee bracelets and they did not yet feature a quickset date.

When the reference was updated to five digits around 1978, the pie-pan dial was replaced by a flat dial. The caliber was updated to now feature a quickset date. A decade later, in 1988, a new update saw the introduction of a sapphire crystal. For us, this is where vintage Datejust becomes modern Datejust.

Countless variations can be found. Different bezels, bracelets, dial colors, sizes and materials. The Datejust is one of the most beloved and versatile watches around. If you are looking for a one-watch-collection, that works equally well with shorts as it does with a three-piece suit, the Datejust is probably a pretty safe bet!
