Happy Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo and a little history

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

A contemporary wall clock design, unobtrusive, flush to your wall, stylish, and sleek with a traditional look  Daffodil style wall clock with a traditional look in 16 inch diameter Surface mount Wall Clock.  An Auburn/Gray  Designs Exclusive . We achieved a sleeker look in our round or freeform ( cut to shape) surface mount clocks by redesigning the movement hosing ( we didn’t like the hockey puck that our suppliers offered) The clock face is printed on a low tack medium with a flat non glare mat finish, that can be moved and remounted numerous times without damaging or leaving any adhesive residue on your walls . On a drywall(sheet roc) walls the supplied tack is all that is needed to support the movement ,battery ,and cover. For plaster, paneling or other hard surfaces that can be drilled into a small molly screw is provided. Although the clock face will stick to any smooth surface it must have the additional support of the tack or the molly screw for the clock movement assembly. the clock face will not stick to rough wood, stucco, rough finished plaster .
