    Wow. How did this happen???

    I jumped in the pool today with my skin driver. A bit later, I looked at it for the time.

    I was shocked. I jumped back in the pool and grabbed the insert, but how does this happen? Shouldn't the insert be pretty solid? I added a couple dabs of silicone and reset it, but now I'm worried it will happen again.

    If it were me, I would give Rob at Toppers a call and see what he advises. If it is under warranty it should be covered. If it's not, I would still consider sending it to Ball to be checked out. Jmho

    Well, it's called a skin diver because you're only supposed to be wearing your birthday suit when you swim!

    Definitely send it in to get fixed under warranty. In the long run you'll appreciate that you did.

    Looks quite naked without the bezel insert. Never had this happen in many years of watch ownership. Is it possible that repeated exposure to pool chemicals loosened the adhesive?
