Global trade has been a thing for a long time, with items occasionally showing up in odd places.
For instance, blue glass beads from Egypt showing up in Bronze-Age Denmark.
The winter season was not assigned to any month, so the calendar year only lasted 304 days with 61 days unaccounted for in the winter.
Unlike the Julian and Gregorian calendars, the Roman calendar had a different system for numbering the days of the month.
The months were divided into day markers that fell at the start of the month, the fifth or seventh day, and in the middle of the month.
These 3 markers were called occurred on the 15th day of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months.
The date is most likely not the construction date, but a repair date as it can be found regularly. People all over Europe still customarily use Roman numerals to write months, whatever ISO standards say.
The coins turned up in Okinawa Prefecture, in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed ruins of Katsuren Castle.
The original Roman calendar was said to be invented by Romulus, the first king of Rome, around 753 BCE.
The calendar started the year in March (Martius) and consisted of 10 months, with 6 months of 30 days and 4 months of 31 days.
I assume the clock has its origin in central Europe. When did people stop, in let's say in Germany and France, to write dates with roman month numbers?
UPDATE 2013-01-12 (or 12/I 2013 ;-) ): After having the (real-life)-feedback of a knowing person: The watch might be from the early 19th century regarding the clockwork mechanics (wooden plates are keeping the gears in place, instead of metal plates as done in newer clockworks).
