This time I share the antique log series Ref.16014 produced in 1984. It was built between 1977 and 1988. The movement was upgraded from the previous generation, Cal.1570, to Cal.3035. The most obvious difference is that the calendar can be adjusted quickly, and the watch mirror is also the last generation of plastic material. The one introduced is called Buckley Dial. It is said that the name originated from a Rolex collector John Buckley (also a religious scientist). Black hands and large Roman time scales are its main features.
Once they feel the charm of formal watches, many collectors will start looking for dials with little personality. Of course, Ref.16014 still has a simple and elegant silver dial occupying most of the circulation, and it takes work to meet a large set of Buckley dials. Let’s take a look at the dial in the picture below. The cream-colored tritium luminous and white dial complement each other. The characteristic of Buckley is the printing of the glossy Roman numerals on the dial, and the powdery texture of the white dial is very distinctive. In addition, it is also a feature that the hands and time scales are the same color. The white dial has black hands, and the blue dial has white hands. Isn’t it interesting? Sometimes you can also see watches whose hands are replaced with ordinary hands after maintenance. Of course, the Buckley dial still hopes that the hands are original. Replica rolex watches.
Although some traces of polishing can be seen on the case, the shape is still very full, and the appearance is well maintained. The bezel looks moderately worn and keeps the unique thick point of the 1980s. The bracelet is a 20mm commemorative strap, and it doesn’t have the drooping look that memorial bracelets often have. The number of the buckle is [K] around 1985, and the year difference is within the allowable range. It is a bracelet in good condition overall. Best replica watches.
Finally, let me discuss the accessories, including boxes, paper certificates, card holders, DATEJUST booklets, OYSTER booklets, and small green tags. The box is in good condition, the two booklets are both from 1984, and the matching accessories are pretty rare, and it is worth recommending as a collectible. Now collectors in the world watch industry pay more and more attention to accessories, especially the complete accessories of antique watches are very rare.
