Regards from Rhodes, Greece. Today I was at an incredible beach on the southern tip of the island Rhodes enjoying a beautiful, windy day. My faithful seamaster pro was along for the trip, on the wonderful bond bracelet. I had contemplated taking it off to go swimming, because of the salt water, even though I would have given it a bath. I was swimming peacefully in fairly mild surf, and turned my back to a wave. It broke into my waist and hanging arms, and to my horror and disbelief the bracelet came undone and broke. I had been checking to make sure it was on properly every 5 minutes, and the divers extension was seated properly etc. I franticay searched the area and later the entire beach, all in vain. I was absolutly shocked that my supposed professional divers watch could not stand up to mild surf. When I return home will send letters to both omega and the credit card company, and with any luck the watch will be replaced. I hope it enjoys a tranquil existance in one of the most beautful places I have ever been to, at the bottom of the Aegean sea. RIP my beloved seamaster professional.
