The Mystery of IIII not IV

King Louis V forbade watch makers from putting "IV" on watches because it had a negative reference of Subtracting one from 5 ( V), his title. So, most watch makers put IIII in stead of IV and still do. Tradition I guess.

Roman numerals correction

The #4 in Roman numerals is IV, and should not be "IIII".

Sharp look, great feel

The watch looks fantastic, certainly shinier in person. It has a nice heft, feels like a solid construction. Nice winding and crown action, solid lume. A workhorse movement in the watch, though I wish it was something a bit more precise of an automatic. It'll run for a long time and be very usable, I'm sure. My complaint is around the bracelet included. I almost lost it off of my wrist one of the first times I wore it when I was flexing my wrist... Almost dropped and destroyed it! The butterfly clasp is not really appropriate for something that is a Marine Star, is it? Butterfly clasp and 200M water resistance doesn't seem to add up. This needs a different bracelet, and I'm going to upgrade the watch with one (maybe a rubber strap.)

Marine Star

Have had this watch for 2 weeks now.Great looking wears easy on wrist not to large or small. Will look to purchase another shortly in different color.
