    Flip Resistant leads to another...

    Over 4 years ago I picked up my first and only G, a 6600 I put on Zulu Adapters and a 24mm two ring. Since then the mechanical side of my collection was a flipping frenzy from Precista to Panerai. A good friend of mine moved out of PAMs and into G's and asked if I owned one. My 'pool watch' which sits strapped to the handle of my gym bag and gets banged around mercilessly. It was then I realized it was the oldest thing in my collection. Weeks later I tore a zulu adapter by forcing the bag into a confined space and decided it was time to get a new strap while servicing the torn adapter.

    While waiting I decided maybe I should find another, a fitting tribute to a lonely, but faithful piece of kit...and it came today...

    I'm not feeling the "King" yet (I feel this is a reference to Elvis' much heavier days). The true king to me will always be the Frogman, but I digress...

    Resistance...is futile!
