This is a good read on the subject:

My understanding is Omani Khanjar, Saudi Royal crests, UAE govt dept emblems etc were applied by regional ADs for their VIP clients to curry favor, rather than at the Rolex factory. They’re authentic Rolex with “aftermarket” dial enhancements. They fall in the same class as other “logo dials”. They’re not OEM like say, the 1/4 Century Club dials for Eaton’s.
