Ken Cooper has done it again. As I am sure you know having read his great tales about when and where the watches came from and the history about their past. Just sorry seems they all pass away, sorry none seem to live a long happy life and sell me their prized positions but you should know Ken spends lots of time in many of the local beer and wine halls out west.
Mister William "Bill" Crocker was a very neat fellow on items that concerned him and his immediate area. He was into recycling and waste control plus love of "Mother Earth" almost from birth. Bill wasn't that bright but would remain focused on things he knew were right and things that were wrong. Bill kept his small but modest craftsman home in "brand new" condition. He patrolled the outside like a drill sergeant and woe be to it to the adult or small child that littered outside his home. At times Bill would use a stun gun or pepper spray to insure that litterbugs would remember not to litter. Bill wrote songs and poems about "Mother Earth" that he would sing, off key, loudly hour after long hour. One fine day Bill was shopping he noticed a great looking Porsche Design Eterna wristwatch. Examining it closely and peppering the salesperson with questions he beamed with approval of the watch's solid construction and the very precise workmanship of the timepiece. Proudly he purchased the watch and every two years he would have a "tune-up" done on the timepiece. Looking for a "Soul-Mate" Bill become fast friends with a Miss Mauy Padwhating who hailed from SE Asia. Bill loved her natural cooking and very immaculate housekeeping. Life was great for Bill until one day while seeding his lawn he was fatally bitten by what he had considered a friendly but shy coral snake. Bill screaming in pain had Mauy look at his wound as she rushed him to a medical center. Alas, Bill in horrible pain & suffering departed this mortal coil while screaming in agony and passing loud, smelly gas. Mauy kept his watch in a safe for years only taking it out every three years for a tune-up. One day Mauy sold Mr. Bill Crocker's prime Porsche Design Eterna watch to Girard's fine watches. This watch is for sale at a very low price considering how fine it has been kept. Ask about Girard's lay away plan as it is tailored to the customer's wants and needs. Perhaps you might ask Girard to include with the watch a booklet he wrote about eating all natural foods & how to prevent snake bites as he feels strongly about both issues.

Someone asked me if Ken Cooper is a real person or do I just make him up? I told Ken about the question so here is what he sent me so you will know Ken is real.
Here is my short story: Born in Seattle, WA, completed college, 30 years in US Army with overseas tours of Korea, Germany, Vietnam, and Japan. Retired as Sergeant Major at Ft Lewis, WA in 1992. Worked for a large gun shop & police supply agency and then worked for the postal service until retirement. Published author of true military articles and write for enjoyment on Girard's website. Currently fighting a very aggressive cancer due to "Agent Orange" exposure in the field of Vietnam. Many tours in Asia so many of my stories for Girard are based upon actual happenings there but all stories for Girard are FABLES. Regards, Ken Cooper
While on a health stroll Mr. Kitt Mentanta ( a retired pest control specialist) was passing by the county's local military airbase and Kitt marveled at the sleek jet aircraft he could see from the road. With a chuckle he tried to remember how the base looked in the 1940s. A passing auto, oddly an old, yet in great shape, Cord roared by Mr. Mentanta with a strange cloud enveloping the auto and Kitt. Swearing loudly, due to the cloud Kitt, finally emerged from the cloud and noticed the air base had an assortment of WW II aircraft such as P-51 Mustangs & P-38s. "Must be an upcoming airshow" Kitt exclaimed to himself. Coming up to his favorite hardware store Mr. Kitt Mentanta noticed it looked different and the flag flying had only 48 stars on it. Entering the store to purchase a refreshing health drink he discovered only cola products in the strange floor mounted cooler. Upon further review Kitt determined the store was really different in layout from last week and he noticed they now offered timepieces for sale. Looking at the watches his eye was caught by a really great looking Hamilton wristwatch labeled as a "Yorktown" model that looked to be old but strangely was listed as "brand new". Asking the clerk how much it was and discovering it was in his price range he asked the clerk if they accepted credit cards. "Credit cards" shouted the clerk in disbelief and whirling he pointed to a sign stating "NO CREDIT". Kitt understood this, while muttering "yokels" under his breath and then Kitt paid cash for the watch, with the clerk muttering the greenbacks "didn't look quite right", but still rang the sale up. Departing the store in a daze Kitt walked back into that strange cloud that lingered near the store but soon he was clear of it. Something didn't seem right, really odd he thought, so Kitt jogged home where all seemed normal and right. Kitt wore his Hamilton for years and saw to it was cleaned & regulated every three years. In the twilight of Kitt's strange life he entered Porter's Rest & Funeral home and sold his strangely like new to Girard. Girard offers this beauty for sale and denies any knowledge of this incredible tale. Ask Girard about his unique lay away plan when purchasing this great Hamilton Yorktown timepiece.

Russell Prize worked as a janitor in Cat City's largest and highest office building. Russell's wages were great and with them and his thrifty way of living he was able to purchase a gold Cyma timepiece which he wore everyday & saw to its service every 3 years. One late evening Russell had forgotten his Cyma watch at home and only remembered that while his working on the 55th floor of the tall office building. Russell was a good worker, but very curious when cleaning offices, and now while in the CEO's office of a large cat food company, Russell dropped a glass framed photo of the CEO smiling broadly and broke it in several places. Quickly thinking he got his tube of "super glue" from his janitors cart & soon had the glass frame fixed but he also had "super glue" all over both of his large hands. Heading for the rest room to clean his hands he noticed one of the large windows was still open. Shutting the window he was startled to notice he was stuck to the large glass pane. Trying to pull free he found that wouldn't work so he pushed hard against the window and to his amazement the window & himself "popped out" from the frame & began a plunge into open space. As he & the glass window plunged downward he thought the end was near but a gust of wind suddenly caused him to glide towards the large lake that boarded Cat City. Finding he could control the glass pane somewhat like a kite he relaxed & enjoyed the view as he soared high over the lake. Suddenly, the wind gusts stopped blowing & Russell plunged towards the lake at a rapid rate and struck the lake's surface with a big impact, however at the last moment Russell released a large blast of methane glass which slowed the impact into the lake. Russell was trapped under the glass & below the waterline. Struggling to turn over the glass pane Russell quickly exhausted his air and soon drowned. It was a baffled water patrol crew that discovered Russell's body & city officials quickly explained his death was due to an accidental drowning but did not address why he was stuck to a pane of glass. City officials did re-name the lake "Glass Lake." Again, somehow & in some way Girard obtained the Cyma watch & now offers it for sale at an attractive price.

Again Ken Cooper has spent many hours in the wine country searching the history of this watch so here is what he has to say about this Movado, Thank You Ken, great job.
Peter "The Piper" Pepper was restless upon completing his lengthy education and his very wealthy father, Graham Gus Pepper, presented him with this Movado "Series 800 Sub Sea" wristwatch and an open plane ticket to anywhere in the world. Days later Peter traveled to a very tiny country, that is almost unknown, located close to Tibet & Nepal. It didn't take him very long to fall deeply in love with the simple style of living and the rugged beauty of this obscure country. Quickly he learned to speak like a native, after all "The Piper" had an IQ of 160, and he established a small school for all the children in the village. As the earth turned many times Mr. Pepper gave his parents his jewelry and swell Movado watch when they made their only visit to try and talk "The Piper" into coming home. He told his father he wanted nothing from the famous Pepper estate (The family was big in Turnips) and upon their passing to please give their wealth to the common people where they resided. Years later his father attended a huge jewelry & watch show in Cat City and sold "The Piper's" items. This wonderful, hardly worn Movado was sold to a Mr. Girard Sensoli of Pinckney, MI. Before leaving the show Graham Pepper drank a couple of cups of a very relaxing herbal tea brewed by Girard. They discussed life, children, good diets, and watches. Girard has listed this Movado timepiece at a very attractive price. This is an investment for your future and a great timekeeper. Ask about placing this masterpiece of time keeping on Girard's very unique layaway plan and own a watch for the ages. Also ask Girard about his unique & very special herbal diet plan as he will be happy to share it with you and check the lay-away-plan at Girard's.
