The roman numeral for 4 is IV not IIII. You'll be the talk of the dinner party.

I am not so sure about that as so many of really nice watches have this "error" , it's very, very common. Soo common that it's very difficult to find one without it.
BTW: personally I am fed up with it.
It's not an error, it's an aesthetic choice to balance the VIII
I=1, II=2, 3=III, IIII=4, IIIII=5, IIIIII=6, IIIIIII=7... and on and on

It seems that it has just been removed from their offer. You can still get it for 84.95 in Rubicon Watch Company page - fulfilled by Amazon.
Can’t see it on the site
Once upon a time, when Roman numerals were used by the actual Roman Empire, the name of the Romans' supreme deity, Jupiter, was spelled as IVPPITER in Latin. Hesitant to put part of the god's name on a sundial or in accounting books, IIII became the preferred representation of four. Of course, IVPPITER wasn't being worshiped much by the time clocks and watches replaced sundials, but clock-makers may have stuck with IIII just for the sake of tradition.

Available again. Link works fine.
Actually the roman empire never used the one before is one less system we have invented since. iiii is correct, iv and ix was never used. Clock faces are designed aesthetically as people have said
