Many of us look forward to what Ken Cooper has to say about this history of many of our listings so this should please you, here is what Ken says is the history of this Hamilton. Enjoy.
While on a power walk for his health Mr. Tyker Shanice ( a retired food inspector) was passing by the county's local military airbase and Tyker marveled at the sleek jet aircraft he could see from the road. With a chuckle he tried to remember how the base looked in the 1940s. A passing auto, oddly an old, yet in great shape, Cord roared by Mr. Shanice with a strange foul smelling cloud enveloping the auto and Tyker. Swearing loudly, due to the cloud he, finally emerged from the cloud and noticed the air base had an assortment of WW II aircraft such as P-51 Mustangs & P-38s, and P-47s. "Must be an upcoming air show" he exclaimed to himself. Coming up to his favorite hardware store Mr. Shanice noticed it looked different and the flag flying had only 48 stars on it. Entering the store to purchase a refreshing health drink he discovered only cola products in the strange floor mounted cooler. Upon further review he determined the store was really different in layout from last week and he noticed they now offered timepieces for sale. Looking at the watches his eye was caught by a really great looking Hamilton wristwatch labeled as a "Boulton" model that looked to be old fashioned but strangely was listed as "brand new". Asking the clerk how much it was and discovering it was in his price range he asked the clerk if they accepted credit cards. "Credit cards" barked the clerk in disbelief and whirling he pointed to a sign stating "NO CREDIT". Tyker understood this, while muttering "yokels" under his breath and then he paid cash for the watch, with the clerk muttering the greenbacks "didn't look quite right", but still rang the sale up. Departing the store in a daze Tyker walked back into that strange, foul smelling cloud that lingered near the store but soon he was clear of it. Something didn't seem right, really odd he thought, so he jogged home where all seemed normal and right. Mr. Shanice wore his Hamilton for years and saw to it was cleaned & regulated every three years. In the twilight of his strange life he entered Porter's Rest & Funeral home to live out his remaining days and sold his strangely like new Hamilton to Girard. Girard offers this beauty for sale and denies any knowledge of this incredible tale. Ask Girard about his unique lay away plan when purchasing this great Hamilton Boulton timepiece. Girard does offer an excellent booklet about the hazards of strange mists and how to avoid them that might be of some interest.

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.

Here is a one of a kind great 21 jewel Longines pocket watch. Made with fine quality wrist watch movement that a clever person refinished the dial and made a fancy stainless steel case with see through back so you can see the movement working so made a nice big wrist watch that has been serviced so it is running and keeping time. The refinished dial is expertly done and they added a American eagle too. Great watch.

Mr. Girard Sensoli while consuming a prodigious amount of healthy, low fat, all natural wheat grain pudding had a brainstorm, he owned an "almost new" Longines pocket watch movement and was acquainted with a very fussy German watchmaker, living in the USA, that would be able to custom make a wrist watch case for this movement. Girard established contact with the watchmaker and an agreement was reached to custom craft a case for Girard's Longines movement. The watchmaker proved to be very meticulous and demanding of pure perfection while creating his work of art. Girard would scrutinize the progress of the Longines work only to be told by the very old & patient German craftsman, "No Mr. Sensoli true works of art cannot and will not be rushed, so please don't be a putz". Finally, the day arrived when the completed Longines watch arrived for Girard's inspection and eventual posting for sale on his web site. This watch is a true old world work of art and craftsmanship that keeps good track of time. The person that purchases this wonderful watch is essentially buying a custom handmade watch. This Longines timepiece is very reasonably priced. Think of it as an investment for your future, a watch to wear & admire daily, and something to leave your appreciative heirs.
Girard, now sipping an all natural herb tea, sits and admires this handmade work of art, and hopes soon a happy customer will own it, possibly by using his very unique lay away plan.
