There’s also two small dots at both sides of the triangle, which is inspired by the instrument panel on the plane, providing greater legibility.

2, Why has the IV Roman numerals hour marker been replaced by IIII?
Many vintage models have adopted Roman numerals hour markers. Interestingly, the IV in Roman numeral has usually been replaced by IIII. That is because the 4 and 8 are in a symmetric position, IIII and VIII have kept a symmetric balance of the dial. For example, the Cartier fake watch with rose gold case has just adopted such a design.

We all know that mechanical watches have been distributed into self-winding watch and manual-winding watch. The former one could let the rotor move by shaking the watch.
