Mr UPS’s brown truck pulled up today with a big box, wherein I discovered my new Pope Pius clock.
At the time of this writing there have been 12 Popes Pius, handy for the crafting of a clock.
The great Vincenzo, official WDTPRS photoshoper, put one together and it is nice.
The background is like parchment with a watermark of the papal keys.
I got the large wall clock.
This CD gives you a sense of the scale.
On the wall over my desk area.
I do have one small complaint. When the clock arrived, I noticed right away that the printed paper faceplate under the clear plastic cover, behind the clock hands, was not flat and smooth and flush. Thus, the hands probably would have been impeded. I therefore had to do some surgery on it before plugging in the included battery. It wasn’t hard to remove the clear plastic dome. I used little pieces of sticky tape under the printed faceplate to make it adhere and lie flat and then replaced the cover. No problem. This problem might have been caused by transport, or changes in humidity, etc.
I encourage you to check out Vincenzo’s online Pope Pius Clock store and give him the business. Vincenzo has often amused us here with his good humor in the images he has created and posted in comments. He has been of help to this blog with some graphics work.
We can’t know if we will ever see a Pius XIII. Until such time, the Popes Pius are serving in yet another role.
