the 4 isnt wrong lol, many of the old timepieces showed the 4 numeral in this way x

yes but it wrong, on a clock you would use the modified version of the Roman numerals , I, II, III, IV. because you are not counting, the old version of the Roman Numerals was used to count numbers on a stick. IIIIVIIIIXIIIIVIIIIX one mark for every one, a v mark for every five, usually up side down, and a X mark for every ten. So If you went that way 1= I, 2= II, 3= III, 4= IIII, 5= IIIIV, 6= IIIIVI, 7=IIIIVII, 8= IIIIVIII, 9= IIIIVIIII, 10= IIIIVIIIIX, 11= IIIIVIIIIXI, and 12 would be IIIIVIIIIXII.  and to be technically correct Roman numerals only have the bars on top and bottom of the numerals when there multiplying.

Looks good. You have had very soft touch and it comes forth really well in this. Great also that your linework varies from thin to thick. I hope the client is happy :)

this is awesome, did you draw from realistic roses or just from your mind?

:icont-o-n-e:
t-o-n-e Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011  Professional General Artist
the roses were drawn from photo-observation, and the watch was the clients' grandad's (with a few details simplified). There's niggly mistakes in this (and unfinished obviously) but I'll probably draw some similar designs again soon.
