Anyone who has followed Ken Coopers colorful addations to our listing should know Ken has been known to smell lots of wine corks and even to suck the color out of many of them so anyway here goes; this is what Ken has to say about this watch and I want you to know I like Vanilla.. Girard
When Mauy Rhea gently opened the box her wonderful but very homely husband Gruntapus ("GD") Davosate presented her on her 40th birthday. Mauy's attention was drawn to the gleaming timepiece residing within. The watch just floored her with it's gleaming beauty and craftsmanship (it was used but so nice). Mrs Davosate knew the timepiece had a great quality movement as an Omega is a very top of the line watch. This classic, styled watch was sensible in size, neither too large nor too small, and would look great on either a small or large wrist. She sensed this watch could be worn anywhere and in any setting. When first offered to Mr Girard Sensoli for sale Girard knew he would be lucky if he was able to purchase this masterpiece of timekeeping for resale. The husband Gruntapus Davosate informed Mr Sensoli that after presenting the Omega watch to his wife he noticed the time and suggested that "Honey-Bunny" take the overflowing trash out to the curb. Placing the watch into his hands she lugged the garbage to the curb, however, Mrs Davosate slipped on a banana peel and fell headfirst into the street to be crushed to death by a Mr Shiageto Aota carelessly driving his automobile. Mr Aota, only 16 years old, was driving solo for the first time since receiving his drivers license yesterday. Heartbroken and filled with guilt many years later "Hubby" attended a large watch show (Known As Large Pants Traveling Watch Show & Great Ice Cream Deals) and sold this great watch to a very jolly looking gent sitting on a bar stool gobbling over a gallon of a very thick & rich almond nugget ice cream that was so fat-laden. Behind this jolly fellow was a large sign, blinking over & over, "Girard's Watches- We pay good money for great watches".Pleased with the price Girard paid him, "GD" departed the show, but not before observing Girard start into a second gallon of crabapple ice cream with his very large wrists moving rapidly somewhat like windmills. "GD" had never observed such eating since his brother Gary "Pigmaster" came to eat a year or so ago. His loss can be you gain as Girard has underpriced this beauty. Ask about his "layaway plan" and you'll come away happy. When you receive the many compliments this Omega will bring be sure to mention you purchased it from Girard's.
