Good looking watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: YouYouPifa Skeleton Dial Stainless Steel Strap Hand-Wind Mechanical Men's Watch (White & Blue) (Watch)
I have received many compliments on this watch. It is eye-catching and unique because of the see-through design. There are, however a couple of things that could be better. First, the Roman numeral for the number 4 is "IV", but this watch has "IIII". Not a big deal, but noticeable. Second, it is a bit difficult because the knob is a little recessed into the casing. As much as this watch needs to be wound (every other day), it can be a little rough on the fingertips. Third, the specifications read "Water resistant:Daily water resistant, please don't put it in water". It should read "Don't even think about getting it near moisture of any kind!" I forgot to take it off when I went jogging once. Now it has moisture inside the glass and fogs up every time it gets warm or humid. If this were a more expensive watch I would be pretty angry about it, but I have to remind myself that I paid less than $13 for it. Even with these minor annoyances, it is still a great value for a good looking watch.

Roman numeral "IIII" is quite common in Europe. Most of the tower clocks have this instead of "IV". It's an old story that starts in 16-17 Century and ends near the end of 19 century.
I guess there are not so many old clocks in other parts of the world.

Actually, using "IIII" is something used more for clocks. As Mihail said, it was used in past centuries in Europe. When counting numbers, we use "IV", but on clocks, it's more common to find "IIII".
