Ken Cooper our west coast sales manager has escaped from the home for the weekend, spent one long day in his local beer hall and tells me this is the true history on this fine timepiece. You will have to decide for yourself, true, fable or just too much of the cork.
Tim Sparkle drove a taxi in a large city late at night to increase his income. Tim had retired from the Army after 20 years with a Purple Heart, Good Conduct medal and several overseas ribbons. His steady customers called him " Sparkle Man" due to his cheerful personality even though he had only one ear and half of his nose due to war wounds. For some reason the ladies just adored the "Sparkle Man" and were always trying to go out with him as he was a single man. Tim had a large and interesting collection of items left in his cab by riders that was not worth turning into the company's lost & found department. He had a well worn "Re-elect Hoover" button, an empty jar of spicy mustard with a plastic spoon in the jar, and his pride & joy a torn T-Shirt with the charming slogan "Eat at Sharkies - Your poor gut will never be the same". Tim recently had a steady customer who was a little older than Tim but very attractive who tipped well and seemed to adore Tim. She always told him during their conversations that "he was just the giggles" and then pinch his remaining ear. On one ride she tipped him $500.00 and threw him a sly wink as she left his cab while wiggling her ample hips. As the world turned Tim dreamed of marrying this lady, who was named B-Bumble Bugster(Buggy) Hines, and living the good life. He just knew "Buggy" who be good for him and he for "Buggy" and one day "Buggy" presented him a shiny white gold Hamilton wristwatch after their first date. The next day he went to have the band sized (he had huge ape like wrists) and was dismayed to discover he couldn't pick up the resized band/watch until the next day. Later that night Tim's first customer who was an unsavory looking man who was called "Muggins" by all that knew him or knew of him. Half way through the ride Muggins slit Tim's throat and steered the cab to an empty alley. He stole Tim's wallet and all his pocket change, to include Tim's lucky duck foot, and fled the scene only to be gunned down later that night while attempting to rob a drunk who used to be a "quick draw” shooter for the circus. Tim was buried with military honors but somehow, someway "Buggy" never knew Tim had been murdered and she spent the rest of her life looking for "Sparkle Man" to no avail. She died a lonely and bitter woman with a grudge against the world. The owner of the watch shop who had resized Tim's watch kept it for almost a year before selling the extra nice Hamilton watch as unclaimed property. The watch changed hands just a few times, as its owners loved it, until Girard purchased it at an estate sale and had his crew of master old-world craftsmen go through it bringing it up to factory standards and now Girard offers this "watch with a past" for sale at a very reasonable price. Call now to buy this watch but don't mention ice-cream or you'll never get off the phone as Girard now consumes ice-cream even while sleeping and he just loves to talk ice-cream to any unfortunate soul who mentions the word. This is a timepiece to hand down to your heirs!

Oh Boy, Ken Cooper our best but only west coast sales manager has told it the way he sees it...What an imagination mixed with beer and wine he spins what he says is the past history of this Rolex. I leave it up to you to decide, is this fact or fable. Poor Ken I am sure he is losing it. Too much of the juice.
Mister Ken (Mumbles) Piercey (The Flying Highlander) just loved really exceptional items to go with his kilts and Highlander uniform that he wore on many, many occasions. Ken was not the sharpest knife in the drawer nor was he the brightest apple on the tree, plus he was hog ugly but he firmly knew he was of true Highlander blood (he was not however). When his rather monstrous, balding mother Mrs. Heather (AKA Bugface/Badbreath/floater of air bombs) Youngrear purchased Ken a used Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust wristwatch he was excited and thrilled - the watch would go great with his kilts and Highlander's costume-as he indeed called himself "The Flying Highlander" others just called him "Mumbles". Ken wore the watch daily and saw to it that it was properly cleaned and adjusted on a regular basis, if only Ken would have bathed (he stunk), with such a regular scheduled time frame. One predestine day Ken left the Rolex timepiece on the mantle and rushed out to dance and leap like a free spirit for the 150th birthday of his home town of Cat City. Wearing his kilts and "Flying Highlander Uniform" he felt very suave and smooth as he performed a spirited and lively folk dance down main street with the rest of the parade. Alas, overcome by the peppy tunes played by Kitten County's Marching Band and Drum Corps, Ken pranced and swirled away from the rest of the parade and entered the traffic stream of autos with his kilts flying in the breeze, and as an added thrill to the crowd, Ken had not wore any undergarments, which he thought would really wow& amaze the crowd of people gathered. Within 5 minutes he was struck and mortally injured by a Mr. Shiageto Aota, a hapless youth despised by all, who had just gotten his driver’s license back after running over a Mr. Davosate several months ago. Ken's heartbroken girlfriend and very attractive and bright Miss Ning Pawhadling Sukin saw to Ken's burial, in kilts and Highlander uniform with proper undergarments in place, of course, and then she stored his beautiful Rolex watch away for many, many years. One bright sunny day, after securing the Rolex Datejust from Royal's Watch Service & Septic Service, where it had just been cleaned and regulated, Miss Ning Pawhadling Sukin noticed a colorful flyer for a large traveling watch show just up the street called "Large Pants Traveling Watch Show". With watch in hand she joined the show and noticed a large cheerful sign proclaiming "I Buy Quality Watches & Eat Tons of Ice Cream". Behind the walnut stained counter, dripping with melted ice cream, was a very well fed red-faced gentleman named Mr. Girard Sensoli who loved watches, dancing, singing, small dogs, polka, and all kinds of rich, fat laden ice cream. She noticed that Girard reminded her of some of the more friendly elephants in her native country. Ning Pawhadling Sukin explained at length to Girard her very sad story with a cheerful smile, Girard examined the Rolex timepiece closely with an eye to quality, and a cash deal was quickly made. Girard highly pleased with the purchase rapidly placed it for sale on his large website at a very attractive price. Please ask about Girard's unique layaway plan when buying this pristine Rolex. "You'll never go wrong with Girard’s" is his motto. As a side note to this story with a happy ending Miss Ning Pawhadling Sukin returned to her lovely, hot & humid country in SE Asia to raise Cobras and Kraits as a profitable hobby on her small, yet friendly, reptile farm. Though she has forgotten completely "The Flying Highlander" she will smile and be reminded of Girard whenever she sees an elephant waddle by or an older 1950s Nash automobile drive buy. Her small ice cooler is stocked with rich, creamy fat-filled ice cream which she feeds to her reptiles. Own a timepiece with a rich background to it as you will never regret owning this classic of timekeeping that just keeps increasing in value. Remember it was once owned by the "Flying Highlander". When you're stopped and peppered with questions where you purchased such a fine Rolex be sure to say, "I bought it at Girard’s."

Oh Boy Ken Cooper is back and in true form. For you who have not read Mr. Coopers additions to our listings are in for a treat. Cooper our west coast general sales manager, and by the way our only west coast staff member likes to dip into the hard stuff and even though he says he only smells the corks should know better... Anyway here is what he says about this watch.
Eider Quackly loved the idea of flying. When just a young child he would dream of soaring in the air like an eagle. As he grew and matured the dream became a burning desire, he read, studied, viewed, asked numerous questions about flying. Friends and fliers would chat at length with Eider about all aspects of flying. On his 18th birthday he enrolled in the local flying school to quickly learn to fly and he proved to be their best pupil in ages. The talk about town was that soon Quackly would be flying jet aircrafts and possibly even soaring into space. His proud and very happy parents presented him with a wonderful Seiko World Timer watch to honor and highlight his hard work in learning to fly. Receiving a scholarship to attend an advanced course in flying Mr. Quackly boarded a small jet aircraft to go to the course located a thousand miles away. Arriving at his designated location hours later Eider was deplaning the aircraft when the pilot stopped him and asked him if he would like to do a walk-around inspection of the jet. Nodding yes Eider started the inspection with the pilot who noticed Quackly's great looking Seiko World Timer wristwatch and asked if he could look at the timepiece. Cheerfully Eider removed the watch and continued his inspection of the jet. After completion of his walk-around Eider stepped back to admire the aircraft. Alas, a passing "tugger" filled with luggage struck Mr. Quackly and flattened his body and left him without a breath of life in him. A large plaque was dedicated in the terminal to Mr. Eider Quackly and his love of flying. His grief filled parents kept the Seiko timepiece for sometime than sold it Girard whom they met in an ice cream parlor. Hearing their sad but moving story Girard first burst into tears and then promised them he would find a good "home" for this great timepiece. The parents went home feeling better while Girard stayed until closing time gobbling rich, fat-laden ice cream and sobbing over the fate of the late, great Eider Quackly. When purchasing this masterpiece of timekeeping ask about Girard's unique lay-away plan. Just stay away from the subject of ice cream or you'll learn more about ice cream then any human being needs to know. Girard feels this Seiko is like "brand new" and then breaks into sobs when he thinks how the late Mr. Quackly never got to wear the watch but one brief time.

During an expensive de'jeuner in a somewhat frilly establishment Stan Spanky III leaned close and spoke sweet nothings to his darling Tina Patts. Stan was in love with Tina and they both had plans for an evening filled with love. But before they departed for their "love nest" Tina presented Mr. Spanky with a gift of a lovely Movado timepiece that left Stan overjoyed and filled with passion for Tina. The next morning filled with lust and deep feelings for Tina, Stan left their love nest with an extra "snap" in his step only to be trampled to death by a large ape that had just escaped from a seedy circus that was leaving town. The ape noticing Stan's condition "snapped" off his arms and legs as a toy to take with him on his new and exciting journey away from the circus. Strangely no one had seen what had happened to the poor, rapidly cooling Stan Spanky III so when police officer Brutus Flattoes arrived upon the scene he had no idea what happened to the body. While making his report Brutus broke wind loudly causing people walking by to think a gun fight was in progress and several concerned citizens called 911 to report a gun fight. Other police arrived along with medics and finally order was restored. Stan's parents were notified he had been mugged and then brutally murdered but a very brave officer had risked life and limb to drive off the feind. The police also announced the fiend would soon be arrested and brought to trial but no arrest was ever made. Tina upon rising later that morning at their love nest noticed that Stan had left his lovely watch on the counter and upon learning of her lovers death kept it for some time until she sold the Movado at a large watch show to a well fed gent that only wanted to be called Girard and not be bothered as he ate his ice cream sandwich. Girard now places this lovely Museum piece for sale at a really great price and hopes that whoever purchases it will use his unique and one of a kind layaway plan that took him days to design and implement. Ever since buying the Movado people have noticed he seems to have an extra "snap" to his step. Tina went on with her life and strangely joined a seedy traveling circus where she sales fat laden ice cream to unknowing rubes. The large ape would later die while attempting to climb a tall building in the city. Buy this watch now and put some extra "snap" in your step while impressing the hell out of everyone.
