Oh Boy read what Ken Cooper our very best and only west coast salesman has to say about this watch and remember we are not responsible for what Ken has to say about things that may offend some out there, just remember he drinks a lot and survived too many years in our armed forces.
Slim Shivers purchased this new Burett wristwatch at "Melvins Fashionable Watches & Unusual Items" and started walking home, Slim believed in saving money and a five mile walk didn't use any gas, almost home, Slim discovered an old wooden board stuck deep into the earth. Pulling on the board, and checking the time expended on his new watch, Slim finally broke the board free from the earth's grasp. He was intrigued by the board and noticed it had an ancient script on it that appeared to be made of bone. While he examined the board closely he noticed movement in the earth and then a feral like beast sprang at his exposed throat. Slim broke into a run with the beast on his tail. As he checked the time on his Burett wristwatch he noticed the beast had large, long teeth and it's breath smelled like stale vomit. Reaching his fortress like home Slim entered and slammed the door shut while releasing a large amount of methane gas in relief before the beast could enter. Knowing local legend well, Slim knew if he could keep the beast out of his home for an hour, he would be safe. An hour passed on Slim's watch and the beast was gone. Doing a little "soft-shoe" dance Slim sang the praises of his new Burett watch. He could hear a thousand devils scream with pain as once again true evil was forced back into the bowels of the earth only able to resurface for the next elections. Many years later Slim sold his watch to a very friendly, large wristed man called Girard (also known to friends as Mr Large Pants). Girard was amazed at Slim's story and placed the well maintained Burett for sale at a very low price considering it's history. A great timekeeper but a also watch to have when the ever dark evening approaches on rat like feet or we approach another election in the United States. Elected officials may break their word but this watch will remain faithful and true to only you. Slim informed Girard before leaving that he had only worn his Burett this one time so Girard should list it as "nearly new" and Slim also stated the buyer should take advantage of Girard's unusual and somewhat chilling layaway plan as it would certainly chill a banker's heart. A tale for Halloween!

Once again our best and only west coast sales manager Ken Cooper retired US Army Officer who has spent endless hours researching this watch has come up with this cockamamie story true or not it is most entertaining.
I really find it hard to believe that I'm listed for sale by a complete stranger, a jolly fellow to be sure, but still a complete stranger I was owned by several well-to do folks until Richard "Homer" Miggins purchased me at a very large watch show in a very large city. 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 and as an added bonus, with his long ape like arms, he could scratch his ankles without bending over. In later years Homer was traded to many other teams as he made the downward slide into the minor leagues where one day he just up and quit. A large Midwestern brewery hired him as a sales rep and star attraction at all ball games in the Midwest. Homer was a great salesman and very popular but the "brew" would lead to his downfall. While "tanked" with his sponsors product, he would guzzle it like water, and run the bases during a game while loudly breaking wind by third base, then go into the broadcast booth and give his candid thoughts on the game laced with many vulgar words shocking the ladies, and on too many occasions "moon the umpire" on a bad call. However, he always took great care of me and saw to it that "Wayne's Finest Watches on this Planet" always serviced me every 2 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 great watch I was. He would state that Heads of State, Kings, rock idols and foppish movie stars didn't own a watch as fine as me. In 1999 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, Brenda Pantywise, kept me for years on the mantle and finally sold me to a large wristed, friendly man named Girard "The Toothpick Kid" Sensoli who had me serviced and placed for sale. I noticed Girard ate great quantities of rich creamy, fat-laden ice cream night and day but always seemed jolly and for some reason he started playing baseball. He has me way under priced and my next owner will be as happy as Mr. Sensoli when he's eating his third gallon of ice cream. I come with a lot of goodies and a great past now purchase a real timepiece with the savings passed on to you. When your friend compliment your great taste in timekeeping be sure to mention Girard's watches as you watch the price of gold rise.

Be prepared to be "peppered" with questions as to where you found this piece of art and timekeeping so be sure to mention you purchased it from Girard. You will never be disappointed in owning this rugged, yet elegant timepiece. Possibly think about using Girard's very unique and tailored for the customer lay-away plan when purchasing this work of skilled craftsmen.
