wrist watch

Wristwatch with Roman numerals. Notice the 4 is IIII, not IV. Theories as to why this is so range from association with Louis the XIV, to showing respect for the Roman God Jupiter (because the latin spelling of his name is IVPPITER ). It’s a nice anomaly, but then again I’ve never truly understood the logic of roman numerals – although I like the look.

Mr. OP loaned this to Obsoland. It was a gift from his father, so even though it’s broken, he is sentimentally attached.
