Tiffany & Co. Atlas Collection Numerals order

Hi, I'm wondering in what order the numerals in the Tiffany & Co. Atlas Collection go in?

I have ring that is supposedly Tiffany & Co., but now I'm worried it may be a fake. I got it off ebay, and I've had it for a while, so I don't know if I can open a dispute.
Anyway, the numerals go in this order: I II III IIII (then there is a thick line, thicker than the lines creating the numerals) IX X XI XII.

It's a solid silver Atlas ring.

Inside it says:
1995 925

I'm not an expert, but I'm learning...the hard way. NEW Tiffany & Co. Atlas JEWELRY only uses 4 numbers (like the 4 "main" numbers on a clock or watch), and repeats.
III - 3
VI - 6
IX - 9
XII - 12
Tiffany & Co. does have an image gallery, but they seem to stick to pieces that are available. (Nothing retired). It states the Atlas jewelry collection was launched in 1995. Based on the 1983 "timepiece" design by John Loring, Tiffany Design Director Emeritus. They were able to patent the design. These do appear, as the clock that inspired the watch, to have ALL 12 Roman numerals. (There have been loads of different styles since 1995, so a lot of variation - font changes, raised numerals, all 12, just 4...).

I have only found a few with Roman numerals I-IV, then IX-XIII. Retired style? No idea.

I did find one Tiffany & Co. Atlas 14K white gold & diamond ring sold by Sotheby's Australia in 2014. I'd like to believe they would have an expert appraising the entire lot of Tiffany & Co. The photo shows XI (11), 3 diamonds, and what looks like XII (12) following. I can only make out a stamp on the interior "1995". I will see if I can find more photos.

I did find one with the Roman numeral "IIX"??? Well, I suppose that could be 8, except 8 is VIII? Along with the price, I'd go out on a limb and call that a counterfeit.

I need to go check mine now. ?????

As I stated, I am NOT an expert, but someone who collects Tiffany & Co. jewelry. I did find that you MAY be able to access the Tiffany Archives.

I may call, so I am completely clear on the services are offered, how accessed, and at what price. I added the link below.

(I think it might be less to just buy all new)?
