Rolex strap buckle

Hi all. This is the buckle on my new 1803. Can anyone confirm these hallmarks look good and this is legit? As I said in the other thread, I do trust the seller and the watch is in GREAT shape but I want to confirm that the buckle is legit. Thanks!

Put a magnet to it. If its plated the magnet will stick

Gold plated items are normally made of a brass alloy
Steel it hard to gold plate that’s why Rolex used gold capping rather then plating on there watch cased
