Does anyone know why you don't see the roman numeral for 4 written as IV on any dial that contains roman numerals??? You always see it written as IIII. I was told there was some special story regarding this from an old man I was chatting with regarding different timepieces, but he could not remember the story. Now I'm really intrigued.
