Very Crisp Bi Directional Bezel. 6 million reference between the lugs and 16253 marking at the other end.
All parts factory original to the watch, creamy yellow lume, with a clean white Buckley dial gold crown to boot! Gears turn tight and feel just as crisp as the solid gold bezel and crown. Thick true lugs with proper brushed finish at top and back.
Case back marked 16000 (as is the case for nearly every ref 162 Ive seen out there). Case measures a perfect 36mm across and 36.6mm across the bezel. Uncommon Execution of an under appreciated reference. Photos inspected by a number of dealers and affirmed that dial is period correct (to all the contrarians that say the Buckley has to be champagne on this reference).
