Again, Mr. Ken Cooper our very best but only west coast sales vice president has found what he says is the history of this fine watch.
I really find it hard to believe that I'm listed for sale by a complete stranger. I was owned by Richard "Homer" Miggins since the day I left the Omega factory. Homer had started out playing baseball for the old St Louis Browns where he set many records on the field and at the plate. He was known as the man who could chew apples through a picket fence as he had an outstanding set of protruding choppers. In later years Homer was traded to many other teams and then made the downward slide into the minor leagues where one day he just quit. A large Midwestern brewery hired him as a sales rep and star attraction at all ball games in the Midwest. Homer bought a bright, shiny new Omega Watch (ME!!) to celebrate his luck in getting this new & great job. Homer was a great salesman and very popular but the "brew" would lead to his downfall. While "tanked" with his sponsors product he would run the bases during a game, go into the broadcast booth and give his candid thoughts on the game, and on too many occasions "moon" the umpire on a bad call while breaking wind loudly. However, he always took great care of me and saw to it that "Shy Pie's Fine Watches" always serviced me every 3 years. In later years, no longer allowed at games, we would watch the game on TV and Homer would tell all his friends what a fine watch I was. He would state that Heads of State, Kings, and foppish movie stars didn't own a watch as good as me. In 2014 Homer sent me for a complete "tune-up" and upon receiving the bill dropped like a rock dead on the showroom floor. As he hit the floor he released a massive amount of gas that smelled like his favorite beer while others said it smelled like rotten pork & beans. His long suffering girl friend, Heather Easylay, sold me to Girard's Watches who had me cleaned up and placed for sale. I noticed Girard has an excellent lay away plan so please ask him about it when purchasing this Omega with a history.

Here we go again, Mr. Ken Cooper our best and only west coast sales manager has come up with what he says it the true history of this Elgin. I leave it up to you to sort out fact from fiction. We Love You Ken but don't spend too much time in that winery.
When he was just a youngster, and never knowing his father, Seamus Devlin led a very miserable life that just continued to get worse each day. Just 10 years old his gin-filled mother was stabbed to death by one of her numerous "boyfriends" leaving young Seamus to fend for himself during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Seamus learned to live/survive on the streets, he rode the rails as a hobo all over the United States, and having never completed grade school was able, somehow, to enlist in the Army before Pearl Harbor. During the war he served in the US Army Infantry in Africa and Europe receiving many awards for valor and being wounded 8 times. He rose to the rank of Master Sergeant and was respected by all in his company. Somewhere along the way he developed a love for unique timepieces and swore one day he would own a true work of art that would put to shame many other watches. After "Victory in Europe Day" he was able to obtain a used Elgin pocket watch and he set out on a quest to convert it to a one of a kind wrist watch. Finally, many years later while visiting Berlin on vacation he found an elderly watchmaker who had unique talent for converting pocket watches to wrist watches. The watchmaker said he could convert the Elgin to fine wrist watch and when finished Seamus Devlin would own a unique work of art to be admired by all. The day came and Sergeant Major (Retired) Devlin took delivery of the hand crafted beauty. As he neared 90 years of age Sergeant Major, US Army (Ret) Devlin sold his one of a kind Elgin wrist watch to a Mr Girard Sensoli of Pinckney, MI with firm instructions to sell his fine timepiece to a person that enjoys the better things in life. Ask about Girard's very unique lay away plan when you purchase this hand crafted beauty.
