Just in case you forgot that Vatican Radio is turning 80 this year (and to celebrate), Audemars Piguet has created a special watched designed specifically for the Pope. The Audemars Piguet Vatican Radio is an all-white watch that even an atheist would love.

The Audemars Piguet Vatican Radio uses Roman numerals to tell the hours and regular numbers to tell the minutes. The numbers have a unique presentation: they grow larger the closer they are to the left side of the watch's face (the 30 to 55 minute mark). The watch is engraved with "Radio Vaticana - 1931 - 2011," letting even the nonbelievers know what this watch is all about. The Audemars Piguet Vatican Radio is a one-off creation meant to be worn by the Pope himself. I'm sure there are a couple million Catholics in the world who would love to get their hands on this.
