Ken Cooper out best and only west coast sales manager surprises me at times and here is one that I know you will enjoy reading.
This beautiful Vollmer Winged Logo Aviator timepiece was once worn by Mather T. Cadwalter. Mr. Cadwalter considered himself the smartest person in Cat City. He was the president of the local" Society of Just Smart People" in the city and he always thought of himself as the smartest person in the state if not the country. One dark & rainy night while driving home in his expensive import auto he suffered a flat tire in front of the county's mental home for disturbed people. Getting the equipment out to change the flat he started to work. Placing the 5 lug nuts beside the car he had removed the tire but while removing the tire it caused him to spill all the lug nuts into a storm drain. With the rain pelting him and no auto club to call (too cheap to belong) he was at a loss at what to do. From the mental hospital's lower window with bars on it a deep voice said, "Can I help"? Are you staff?" asked Mather. "No, I'm a patient but I see your problem & I can assist," said the deep voice. Shaking his head side to side Mather said ok. "Take one lug nut from each wheel & use them to secure the wheel & drive slowly to a tire shop," replied the patient. Doing so Mather found it would work. Getting ready to drive away Mather said, "Thanks but why are you a patient there?" The reply, in that deep voice caused Mather to alter his life when he heard "I may be crazy but I'm not stupid." Mather shortly after sold all he owned and hired out as a deck hand on a rusty old tramp steamer as he knew he was stupid, really stupid. Girard now offers this like new Vollmer at a greatly reduced price. A few months ago Mather Cadwalter was lost at sea near the Cape of Dismal Dreams, so when wearing your beautiful Vollmer timepiece give a thought about his poor soul, but be sure to tell everyone you got a great buy on this watch from Girard’s.
