Mr. Ken Cooper our best but only west coast sales manager has done it again. You must read this account of what Ken says is the colorful history of this fine timepiece. True or false it sure kept me to the end. Wow what a past.
Ann Arden was so thrilled as she had just received a solid 14k gold with diamonds & rhinestones Elgin timepiece from her husband battling hostile forces in the very Far East. It was so great looking & what a great timekeeper it was. Ann's husband, a full Colonel in the armed forces, was due home soon she thought as he had enough "points" to rotate out of that "meat grinder" we were involved in. The months passed but no Colonel Arden at her doorstep. No mail either and Ann became so concerned that she contacted military Headquarters to discover what had happened. She was shocked, just shocked, to discover her husband had retired overseas and her only contact with him was his monthly money order . A number of years passed without Colonel Arden-(Retired) by Ann's side, but still Ann hoped, she kept her great gold Elgin timepiece cleaned & timed but at last she hired Sneed's Detective Agency to find out where her hubby was. When Agent Snerd Sneed delivered his report she was shocked, just shocked to discover Colonel Arden-Retired was married with twelve kids(one of his own) and now owned a large noodle factory in the Far East. She sold her 14k gold Elgin watch to Giggles Mulebutt, a glamour girl who sang in the city's finest clubs, and Ann then moved to Porter's Rest & Funeral home to live out her remaining miserable days. Giggles took great care of her Elgin, but down on her luck, she sold this golden master piece of timekeeping to Mrs. Lana Lipt (a widow), who was a down to earth house wife, and she maintained her 14 golden Elgin watch through the years. Upon her passing, Lana's heirs sold this fine timepiece to Girard, as her heirs were "strapped" for cash due to the late Lana Lipt's passion for giving all her money to the city's "Homeless Fund for unwanted feral kittens & cats". Girard proudly offers this 14k golden beauty that has always been well kept & cared for by the fine ladies that owned it.
