Mr. Ken Cooper our west coast best and only sales manager has fallen off the dock again when he was fishing for the history of this fine watch. I think he hit his head on a rock and swears this is the true story of the history of this watch. I leave it up to you but remember Ken is so good we sure don't want to lose him to Readers Digest or Playboy and not hear these true accounts.
Mr. Mount Pusayee' was a private detective who could not solve the most simple of crimes. He spent weeks trying to find out who grabbed Mrs. Smackers Black Cat only later to find out the cat was in Mrs. Smackers basement. He struggled for years with very little success until one day while searching an old cave for a missing pet cricket (named Dart) he discovered a strange looking metal & glass plate with very strange markings on the face of the plate. Snatching up the plate Mr. Pusayee' zoomed home thinking the strange plate might be worth something. Looking the plate over & over again he could find nothing worthwhile until he held it in front of his TV which was blaring a very annoying commercial. Suddenly, the plate glowed brightly with a flashing message of, "That is a complete lie - do not buy it". He tried it again of a local politician on TV who was gloating about his great accomplishments for the taxpayers. The plate again glowed and a message flashed "Complete lies - nothing but lies - he's stealing you blind". Mr. Mount Pusayee' contacted the government who sent agents and after testing the plate they took the strange plate and gave Mr. Pusayee' a large sum of money to keep quiet about the plate upon pain of death. Mr. Pussayee' retired and bought a new home and a new 1955 Hudson Wasp automobile. One day while shopping he discovered this excellent 6 Diamond 23 Jewel Bulova watch for sale in Cody's Department store. Peppering the sales clerk with questions about the 23 Jewel Bulova he purchased it and wore it for many years. As he approached the end of his life he moved into Porter's Rest & Funeral Home to finish out his exciting, fun filled life while wondering what the government did with that strange plate. He sold his well kept Diamond Bulova wrist watch to a Mr. Girard Sensoli as he just knew Girard would find a good home for his Bulova. When purchasing this beauty don't ask Girard about the very strange plate that can detect the truth as Girard claims he knows nothing about it. Instead ask about Girard's unique lay away plan and his very special herb & nut diet plan that has put a spring in his step and trimmed many pounds off his torso.

Most of you know Ken Cooper my best, only sales manager for the west coast and you should know by now that Ken loves to spin tails that he says are the true history of many of the listings we have on these pages and remember he says he read tea leaves but we know better don't We....he drinks a bit..
Not so long ago a Mr. Graham C. Shandy went to a stage production at a local theater. Before the show began, Graham commented to his girl friend (Brenda Whisper) that he had eaten something he knew he shouldn't have. Mr. Shandy also mentioned his concern he might have some "gas problems" during the show's performance. The show started and for the next 3 hours, Mr. Shandy continuously passed gas, of the most stinking kind. People in front and behind him fanned their faces, turned and glared at Graham, held their noses, and leaned in their seats trying to get away from the smell. Finally an elderly gentleman removed from his wrist a great looking timepiece, a 14k gold Gotham Watch it turned out to be, placed it in Mr. Graham C. Shandy's hand and stated it was his if he and his girl friend would leave the theater now and not return. He stated that he owned the Gotham timepiece for many years but would not miss it if Mr. Shandy would leave at once. The large crowd roared when Graham & his soon to be wife departed the theater. For a few years Graham wore his golden beauty with pride all the while laughing that the watch did not cost him a red cent. One day, his watch was in for cleaning at "Hefe's Watch Service", and Graham was cleaning his roof when he slipped & fell off the roof. As his hapless body struck the earth there was a loud explosion, due to his build up of internal gas, that destroyed all the houses in the block. A shaken Brenda Shandy(his wife) arrived to a destroyed home and was shaken for months to the loss of her husband & their home. Several months later Brenda retrieved Graham's 14k gold Gotham watch out of the shop and sold it to Girard's Watches. Brenda later moved into the high mountains of the state and had no further contact with humans ( her last comment to Girard was "humans are full of gas & stink)! Girard now offers this great golden timepiece at a great price. Since Brenda's story about the watch & her late husband Girard now consumes daily anti-gas pills. Ask about Girard's very unique lay away plan when purchasing this timepiece.

If you have been following Ken Coopers colorful stories on many of our listings than you will surly enjoy this accounting of what Ken says is the history of this fine watch.
Gill Elly was born an ugly baby and until he entered primary school his parents were ashamed of him in public because he was so hog ugly, but after his first day in school they discovered that Gill had a beautiful & admired buttocks. The staff of his school raved about his rear end, students wished they had a rear end like him & the parents of these students just loved the sight of him. As the years went by Gill's pride in his rear end overwhelmed him and he started to enter rooms, buildings, elevators, and autos by backing into them. He would hear men sigh, women moan, & some folks cheer as he entered a room rear end first. Working for "Sack's Quality Paper Bag Company" he became their ace salesman as many supermarket chains & department store chains loved to see Gill enter their building(s) rear end first. With his large sales commission(s)he bought a really great looking Gevril timepiece and Gill wanted all to see his new timepiece but entering a room rear end first created a problem for him as he could not show-off his Gevril readily. He tried entering a room side-ways ,backing in with a quick "spin" but there appeared no way to show off his watch & rear end at the same time. One bright & sunny day while Gill's watch was at the jewelers receiving a cleaning, he was just leaving work & upon entering an elevator, buttocks first(of course), he heard someone call his name. Sticking his head out of the elevator to see who was calling his head was slammed by the closing door (the elevator was overdue for service), and Gill met his fate. He was buried face down so that his fine buttocks would be on display as he lay in eternal rest and his tombstone read " The Famous Gill Elly, "Buttocks Boy...KMA". The jeweler sold his Gevril watch with proper box & papers to Girard's Watches with Gill's parent's permission & now Girard offers this great, hardly worn watch at a reasonable price. Ask about Girard's very unique lay away program. Perhaps you might also ask Girard about including his small, well written booklet on elevator safety with this Gevril timepiece.

Here are some more words of wisdom on this watch from our friend Ken Cooper.
When Sammy Quinn Davosate gently opened the gift box marked "Movado", that his wonderful but very homely wife Grunala Davosate (her sister was named Grunthard) presented Sammy on his 60th birthday, Sam's attention was drawn to the gleaming Movado timepiece residing within. The watch just floored him with it's gleaming beauty and craftsmanship. Mr Davosate knew this timepiece had a great quality quartz movement like most of the very top of the line watches that sold at a much, much higher price. 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. He sensed this watch could be worn anywhere and in any setting. When this masterpiece (owned by the late Mr Sammy Davosate) was first offered to Mr Girard Sensoli for sale, Girard knew he would be lucky if he would be able to purchase this masterpiece of timekeeping for resale on his website. The widow Grunala Davosate informed Mr. Sensoli that after presenting the Movado watch to her husband she noticed the time and suggested that "hubby" take the overflowing garbage out to the curb. Placing the watch into her loving hands and giving her a deep, loving kiss on her very thin blistered lips, he lugged the garbage to the curb, where Mr. Davosate slipped on a banana peel (thrown there by their filthy, nose picking neighbor Kabor (The Sidewalk Climber) Kidddely, 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 license yesterday. Heartbroken and filled with guilt several months passed before Grunal Davosate attended a large watch show and sold this fantastic watch to a very youthful looking gentleman who was eating a small, healthy Tofu Burger. Behind this jolly fellow with the bright winning smile was a large sign flashing in bright, yet not eye straining lights, stating "Girard's Watches- We pay good money for good watches”. Pleased with the price Girard paid her, Grunala departed the show, but not before observing Girard start into a vigorous program of various exercises to keep himself fit & healthy. Her loss can be your gain as Girard has underpriced this almost new Movado with a story behind it. Ask about Girard's unique, tailored to the buying publics "layaway plan" and you'll come away happy. Girard always states. "Eating a beef steak sometimes can contain a lot of fat & gristle. Eat a Tofu steak and you and your heart will be the better for it".
