The history of the Buckley dial:

Normally Rolex Dials have applied numerals or indexes. Introduced in the late 1960's, Rolex produced a very limited dial with printed very pronounced Roman numerals. These became known as "Buckley Dials" after a very passionate collector, John Buckley who assembled a large collection of this specific dial watch.

Buckley dials have a closed outer track and painted Roman numerals are printed in black. The indices from 5 to 8 are reversed in their orientation to aid in legibility. The font is also unique to these dials which is longer in their design and has aged more gracefully than the stubby look of a standard Roman dial.
