Looking to purchased this datejust with Buckley dial. So far these pictures are from the seller. Is this the original dial? Thank in advance.

Seems likely but the photos are not so clear.

The black hands are usually not it's a plus and might be some indication of original.

Better pics would help but it appears original as stated black hands are correct and are an indication the watch may have always had that dial set up

The crown looks gold which would be from a gold or TT watch. No difference in valuation just something that should be known. I prefer the gold crown on a SS watch, gives it a warmer look.

I have another of these dials awaiting a suitable SS recipient. :)

The crown on the watch in question looks steel to me based on those pictures.
