Here are two clocks. 

         

 

One has normal numbers. One has Roman Numerals.

They both show the same time.

 

The long blue hand is pointing to the 3 or III, which is a quarter way round, so the time will be something 15 or a quarter past.

 

The short red hand is pointing to between the 5 and the 6 or the V and the VI, so the time is:

 

5:15

or a quarter past 5.
