But it's all personal taste.
The lume dots look odd though, don't they?
Usually Roman dials don't do anything for me (I find those Buckley dials terribly cluttered), unless they look more like this:

It looked good, black hands, box/papers etc
Never even paid attention to the dial
The good news
Everything else is ok
Tore it down yesterday it is a refinish on an authentic plate
That is good news

and Datejust dials are considerably cheaper to source than most! Happy hunting!

I do not like the dial at all
|July 2 2011, 12:34 AM |

This the renowned "Buckley Dial"
Is it not?
I agree though
The lume is a little funky.
The dial is a Buckley>>>>>>>

The other dials that is showing is not with painted romans.
I have the same and it's a awesome combo IMHO. The lume dots
looks wierd but the rest is ok.
Here is a few pics of my one.
Look again at the fonts!
|July 2 2011, 2:28 AM |
I know I have seen those fonts somewhere>>>>>>

Damn... I hate being WRONG
|July 2 2011, 7:10 AM |
Pulled out the loupe...
Clear as day
Thanks for pointing it out
I bought an Heuer earlier this year that I had to return...
|July 2 2011, 12:04 PM |
for the same reason. But when I saw it, I was so smitten, I saw only what I wanted to see. I just hope you have the opportunity to return it! cheers, Rita
