What is it about Roman Numerals that's a royal pain when they show up at the end of an old movie (I can never figure them out.), but is cool on the face of a clock?
I have a beautiful oak Grandfather clock my Dad made for me and--yes!--it has Roman numerals, too. I have to be honest; I have NEVER seen another oak Grandfather clock--they're usually made of a dark wood (walnut or cherry). That makes my clock all that more special. (And as it ages, the color is mellowing, too.)
Do you have a clock preface? Arabic numbers, Roman numerals, or (ick!) digital?
