Franklin Mint John Wayne Collector Pocket Watch&glass Display Dome Stand B20a216 For Sale
The Duke would say, “Talk low, talk slow, and don't say too much.” But I need a few words to describe what it is you are REALLY buying.
You will find a physical description of “what is in the box” below, but that is not everything that you are buying. People don’t wear wristwatches anymore—cell phones tell time. This is an accessory—a statement—a statement of who you are and what you are. In talking about America, the Duke said: “I can tell you why I love her. I have a lust for her dignity. I look at her wonderfully classic face, and I see hidden in it a sense of humor that I love. I think of wonderful, exciting, decent things when I look at her . . . .” He might very easily have said the exact same things about this pocket watch.
This would make a wonderful gift for yourself—can you think of anyone who could deserve it more than you ?—or a friend, assuming the friend is not a liberal, a democrat, or a native American Indian. If they are in the TEA party, I can almost guarantee they will treasure it.
“It's kind of a sad thing when a normal love of country makes you a super patriot. I do think we have a pretty wonderful country, and I thank God that He chose me to live here,” John Wayne once said. But it is just as true today as it was when he said it a generation ago. Why not show the world you care, by the pocket watch you wear?
What you are buying is: The Franklin Mint Item B20A216 C -- John Wayne ~ "American" Pocket Watch with Chain, Glass Display Case, and all PAPERS. What you will get is the actual unopened sealed box as shipped by the Franklin Mint to their outlet store (previously in Woodfield Mall, IL).
I am keeping one watch for myself, & opened up that box to take pictures. What I am shipping to you is the duplicate of what you see, only it has never been opened or inspected by myself. If for some reason, you open this box and find it damaged in any way, or different in any way from what you thought was represented in this ad, I will gladly refund your $ if you wish, or try to find another duplicate that exactly matches what I have described in this listing.
The Duke said, “Life's hard. It's even harder when you're stupid.” Don’t be stupid. Don’t let this opportunity to purchase something that you will be truly proud to own, and display, pass you by. He also said, “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.” When midnight comes on the day this sale ends, I hope you realized yesterday, that you needed to be the new owner of this magnificent pocket watch. I know I do, which is why I am keeping one watch for myself !
