Ken Cooper out best and only west coast sales manager has spent hours researching the history of our listings. He spends many hours in one of his favorite beer halls so remember this is where he says he has found out about this watch.
Astor Spanglett II smiled as he reviewed Girard's excellent listing of timepieces. Girard had Astor's well maintained Lord Windsor watch for sale at such a reasonable price and what a history that timepiece piece had. Astor remembered that he bought the Lord Windsor, just before he left the military at the post exchange, with the clerk's words stating, "A really fine watch Major Spanglett - it will give you great time for the ages". Astor fondly remembered his first job ( and last) as the Kitten County's animal control officer with all the wild adventures he had. The rabid bat attack, the elderly couple with 312 cats in their small mobile home, the major of Cat City being attacked by a savage rabbit, all these problems had been resolved by him, Astor Spanglett II Kitten County's finest animal control officer. Now in retirement he found no need to have such a fine timepiece as the rest home (Porter's Nursing & Funeral Home) provide all the timekeeping residents required with wall clocks, mantle clocks, and grandfather clocks. Asking around Astor found that Girard had one of the best web sites for watches and he gave a person a good price for their timepiece. Now Astor was pleased and happy - he was comfortable in his new home and he knew Girard would sell his Lord Astor to a kind and caring person. When purchasing this excellent watch from Girard ask about his unique layaway plan.
