It's nearly Easter, so Jesus is on everyone's mind -- now, he can be on your watch too! This Jesus watch is a kitschy masterpiece which features the main man and a guest appearance from The Virgin Mary.

The Jesus watch is a great tongue-in-cheek present for any friends who don't take life too seriously. With its faux gold and silver face and strap, the retro watch looks like a standard banker's timepiece until you look closer and realize it features tiny pictures of religious icons.

The use of holy and religious images in popular youth culture has become prevalent over the last few years. It indicates more relaxed views about the Catholic church. With Easter coming up and the election of the new Pope in Rome, religion is something that is on everyone's minds at the moment.
