    Formerly Phreddo's Pinkie

    Quite some time ago Phreddo posted a pic of this G, WRUW or 5600 owners,,,somewhere, and I wanted it. I searched high and low for one to no avail. About 2 weeks ago he put it up on eBay. I messaged him what he wanted. He told me what range he was hoping it would bring. We made a gentleman's agreement, that if it didn't sell, I would give him an agreed upon amount. Suffice to say, no one bid, and he and I fulfilled our deal. Winner winner chicken dinner.

    Thanks to Pheddo and all the no bidders. I am tickled pink. Or is it sunrise purple? Salmon? or Coral?

Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    Saw one of these for sale when I stumbled across my G5600KG-3 last Easter in the Mall of Millenia in Orlando, vendor offered me the pair for a good price as I said I was a bit of a collector and he seemed a nice guy, passed on it as I had the evil eye from my wife who was with me at the time!
    It really is truly pink, lovely colour, but I have always been concerned with the paint coming off the corners of the bezel of these glossy coated 5600 glides.
    Enjoy your watch!

    Why do I think the police officer used his position and harassed potential buyers into not bidding?
