Once again Ken Cooper our best and only west coast sales manager who by the way is a retired army officer who has spent so many hours researching our listings and what great recounts of the history of the watches, but please remember Mr. Cooper does sometimes spend time at the local winery as a professional taster so some of his accounts may seem slightly clouded. Thank him for such interesting accounts and again let's hope that Readers Digest will not steal him away from us..
Winston Jackson Puffingston IV loved fine items. When his mother, Edith Pfalzeringtin Puffingston, purchased him a Tourby timepiece he was delighted. Only "Mother (Sweet Dear)" could understand that only precise timepieces could rest upon Puffingston flesh. Winston wore the Tourby only once a year. Winston saw to it that this fine timepiece was serviced monthly as it graced the wrist of a Puffingston. All seemed good within the household but there was a minor problem; Winston was a constant worrier. When anyone coughed or sneezed Winston was off to see his personal doctor, Renaissance Shanks, MD, for treatment. If there was news of a new illness in some part of the world Winston fled to his doctor knowing he had contracted it. His concern for his health led to him being weighed twice daily, blood pressure checks at all hours, and the large consumption of over the counter meds for every known illness on the face of the earth. Having his 10 bedroom home remodeled Winston was drawn to the old world craftsman with a power nail gun. Donning a dust mask, gloves, and booties for his feet Winston asked to examine the nail gun. After careful examination Winston started to return the nail gun but instead took at closer look at the working end of the nail gun and my mistake fired a nail through his eye and Winston dropped like a gored ox. Mother saw to it that Winston was buried in the family plot and told Sydner, Winston's "bat man", to find a good home for his unused watch. The timepiece is now for sale by Girard's Watches at a price that the
average person can afford. The Tourby timepiece will provide superior service to its new owner as it once graced the wrist of a Puffingston. Please ask Girard about his very unique lay away plan when ordering this fine timepiece. Possibly, if you dare, ask Girard how he remains so youthful and physically fit.
