This watch is beautiful! It's exactly as it looks in the picture. It came on time. I had it engraved and the engraving is exactly what I wanted. Camille was wonderful, she got back to me immediately when I contacted her with a special request and was able to add the special symbol I asked to be engraved. She also sent it out the same day and it arrive the day she estimated it would. I recommend Art Inspired Gifts to anyone that wants beautiful, special gifts at a great price and excellent craftsmanship.

***************************
* Why do some watches using Roman numerals choose to use IIII (i.e. Cartier) for the number four rather than the correct IV?

* There are two reasons often given for this tradition. The first (and likely apocryphal) is that "IV" is a representation for "Ivpiter", or Jupiter, the supreme Roman god, and that people were afraid to invoke his name on timepieces.

The real reason is aesthetics: watchmakers want to keep an approximate vertical symmetry in symbol width, and "IIII" is at better parity with "VIII" than "IV".

As for "correctness" of IV versus IIII, Roman numerals weren't standardized until long after the ancient Romans. Use of forms like "IIII" and "IIX" (for 8) and "IC" (for 99) was fairly common and, at times, preferred. It's a modern convention that there's only "one correct way" to write Roman numerals.

Locate the mainspring. It is between the '10' and the face center on a pocket watch, and between the "1" and the face center on a wrist watch. When loose the coils are relaxed into their outer area. At about 10 twists you will still see space between the coils. At 15 or so twists when you can see slight space between the coils is fully wound. Stop before you feel resistance, to prevent the mainspring from becoming stuck in a tight knot at its center. You can try to loosen a tight coil by giving it several good shakes. Grasp the watch firmly (so as not to drop it) and 'snap' it several times. You can also try tapping the side of the watch on a thick note pad to free the tight coil and start the watch ticking again.
