5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Piece. Definitely Worth The Price., December 17, 2013

Review of: Vantasy Classic Antique Roman Half Hunter Black Steel Metal Hollow Skeleton Pocket Watch.

I purchased this watch because I wanted a mechanical pocket watch. For the price I am amazed at the level of quality. The weight is proper for a mechanical watch. It does not feel cheap. The watch cover face opens and closes very smooth. The mechanics of cogs and mechanism can be viewed through the front and back. The only error is the Roman Numeral four (4) is represented as IIII instead of IV. I have not researched the history of watches from the 19th Century where perhaps this was common or not. After receiving it I set the time and wound the spring. I have monitored the time for twenty-four hours and the time has kept pace with digital time losing probably only seconds, if any. Another positive factor is that the watch has a sweeping second hand. That is a nice touch and was indicative of the more expensive pocket watches from days gone by. The color is an antiqued brown for both the watch and chain fob. For those interested in timepieces or for any other reason this watch is a good buy.

It's printed like that due to symmetrical reasoning. Most pocket watches do that to keep balance.

The error you point out is indeed yours and you explained why in your very next sentence. Jeffrey, all you had to do is take one minute of your time and look up 19th century pocket watches to find that, indeed, the Roman Numeral IIII was used thoroughly in that time period.
