As most of you know Ken Coopers wild stories about the history of the fine watches posted for sale. I should tell you that Mr. Cooper has been spending lots of his working day in Jappies the local winery in his area and you can better understand how he is able to get the history he says is real.
Woody Riggins loved to stare at women from his apartment's roof with a powerful telescope nightly. His rather ugly girl friend, Ping Poe was thrilled that he did this, as she thought he was star gazing not his prevision of peeping at women, as Woody had breath that stank of rotten turnips & body odor that caused their small one room apartment to smell like an outhouse (that had not been "limed" in years). On his birthday she bought him a very nice used 14k yellow gold Longines 5 Star "Admiral" timepiece that she was to give him after he was done with his stargazing. This would never occur as on that fateful night, a nosey, aggressive passing stranger( a Mr. Shigeta Aota), newly armed with a powerful slingshot, saw Woody moving about the roof and thought he was a prowler or a pervert. Wanting to be a responsible citizen, plus itching to use his new slingshot, he fired several shots of steel and glass pellets which put an end to Woody's deranged ways. Days later, after a brief stay in the hospital for nerves, due to her losing her ugly, perverted, dimwitted, and very stinking boyfriend in such a manner, Ping Poe placed this bright 14k gold Longines watch into storage and later in life sold this masterpiece of timekeeping to a Mr Girard Sensoli at a watch show. She felt Girard could find a good owner for such a beautiful used watch that her boyfriend had never gotten to wear. Ping knew Girard had a large website where many people could view his watches that were for sale. It's Girard's pleasure to offer you this jewel of a used watch for sale at great price. Ask about Girard's layaway program when purchasing this Longines 5 Star "Admiral" timepiece. Possibly ask Girard about the great used, powerful telescope he also has on sale also ask him to include his safety booklet on using powerful slingshots.

Ken Cooper our west coast manager and story teller spends many hours
searching for the history of the timepieces we post for sale. Here is what
he says is the colorful history of this one.
Squire Ken Piercieds (aka The Flying Highlander) loved exceptional items to
go with his colorful kilts and decked out Highlander uniform that Ken wore
on many occasions. Mr. Piercieds was not the sharpest knife in the drawer
nor the brightest apple on the tree but he felt he was of true Highlander
blood (however Ken was not). His mother, Buggina, had just presented him a
very nice Bulova timepiece with a red prancing lion on it and this excited& thrilled Ken because he knew it would go well with his Highlander clothing.
One fine day, the 50th birthday of Feline City was going on, so Ken in a
rush to celebrate the event put on his "Flying Highlander" uniform but
forgot to put on his great looking Bulova and rushed out to perform a very
spirited & lively dance down main street. Wearing his kilts and singing
off-tune he joined with Feline City's marching band as they marched down
main street. Forgetting where he was due to his prancing & leaping Ken
soon entered the traffic stream of autos and was really letting his kilts
fly in the breeze when he was mortally struck by an auto driven by Mr.
Shigeta Aota, a hapless lad who had had already fatally struck several folks
throughout Kitten County with his well worn auto. Ken's lovely girl friend,
Miss Mauy Padwaterington, was given Ken's lovely watch and she trotted off
(she had a somewhat of a horse face) to the nearest traveling watch show and
sold it to Mr. Girard Sensoli for a very fair price. Leaving the show Mauy
thought that Girard was possibly the neatest and well preserved older
gentleman she had ever seen. Girard now offers this well maintained Bulova
timepiece, once owned by "The Flying Highlander", at a great price. Ask
about Girard's unique lay away plan when purchasing this Bulova watch.
