Ken Cooper out best and only west coast sales manager has spent much time on this watch to discover what its past history is. Don't ask me about the plate as the same group who covered up the Roswell flying saucer crash has sworn me to keep it under my hat. Ken is sure the best...
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. Jimmers Black Cat only later to find out the cat was in Mrs. Jimmers basement. He struggled for years with very little success until one day while searching an old cave for a missing pet rat he discovered a strange looking metal & glass plate with very strange markings on it. Snatching up the plate Mr. Pusayee' darted for home thinking the strange plate might be worth something. Examine 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 accomplishments for his 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. Mr. Pussayee' retired and bought a new home and a new 1950 Hudson Hornet auto. One day while shopping he discovered this excellent 14k Yellow Gold Lord Elgin watch for sale in Mel's Department store. Peppering the sales clerk with questions about the golden 14k Lord Elgin 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 life while wondering what the government did with that strange plate. He sold his well kept 14k Lord Elgin to Mr. Girard Sensoli as he just knew Girard would find a good home for his Lord Elgin. 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.
