The Pope Wears a Swatch

Recently found out that Pope Francis wears a Swatch similar to this one:

I might grab one. It'll go great with my Timex Iron Man, you know how the song goes

"I'm friends with the president

I'm friends with the pope."

Plus if it's good enough for the Pope surely it's good enough for me. I like the cut of his jib. Like I could have a beer with Pope Francis you know but I'd still asking things like, how haunted is the Vatican, do you have pics of the room of cursed artifacts, what prompted the allegations that there is an alien living at the Vatican since the 1700s, what's your favorite go to food when you go to other countries, you know try to avoid any real dark stuff. Id like to go to Rome and there is a real and totally not made up picture of the Pope leaving a record store, somewhere, so there is a chance I might run into him. And surely, if I met the pontiff, wouldn't it be cool to stick out my wrist and go, "Hey, same watch!" Please feel free to use "there's a future possibility that I might run into the Pope" as a reason to get a watch if you really need an excuse.

You can't make this kind of thing up

There has been debate over whether it was a Swatch or a Casio MQ-24-7B for years. I tended to think he'd have the Euro brand. I'm glad it's been resolved.

I had to find the article, but Wathonista did an article a couple years about about watches from the Popes. THey seem to think it is a Casio.

i was hoping it was a casio, but it makes sense that it's a swatch.

i was on team casio, but it makes sense that it's a swatch. if i was the pope i would wear something with cathedral hands.
