Ken Cooper is out best but only sales manager for the West Coast and he dips he beak in the sauce so when you read what Ken says is the history of this watch keep that in mind. I love his findings anyway..
Snerdly Sulfate was a sad and bitter man due to losing both legs and one arm while using the latrine on the battlefield of Korea. A stray enemy shell struck and exploded upon the latrine while Snerdly was using it. Badly injured, he was sent first to Pusan, Korea then to Japan, and finally to a large hospital near his hometown in the states. The days and months passed slowly and Snerdly became more and more bitter & hostile towards life and the world. All this would change when a departing soldier, who had been a patient on Private Snerdly Sulfate's ward, left him a great looking 14k yellow gold Lord Elgin watch. The soldier's departing words were, " This watch will speed your recovery and improve your outlook on life once you discover its inner beauty, also it was previously owned by a hero of WW II a fellow named Max Klien." At first Snerdly was disgusted, how could a watch he could not set nor wind improve his life? Yet as days passed he was drawn to the great beauty of the yellow gold Lord Elgin. It seemed to glow night and day and whisper to him " Learn to wind me and more will follow." So one sunny day Snerdly set out to try and set the time. He had a goal and suddenly starting eating better and being cheerful towards the hospital staff. One evening he was able to set the time and within a few days he was winding it also. He improved so much both in his physical state and also mentally he was discharge with a great outlook for his future years. Using his savings he established a motivational speaking organization that thrived once the word got out that Mr. Snerdly Sulfate could inspire a bowl of jello to greater things and make people do great things. On his 90th birthday he retired to his plush home and sold his beloved Lord Elgin to Girard's Watches in the hope that it would inspire a new owner to become the best he could be. Please take advantage of Girard's very special layaway plan to own this masterpiece. Girard was so moved by Mr. Snerdly Sulfate that he vowed to name his next pet after this great man.

Ken Cooper our best and outstanding west coast manager spends lots of time in the local pub and says he reads the internet to discover where some of my listings come from and here is one he says is not a spoof, I am not sure what do you think ? Girard
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.
