I was out on lake Michigan earlier today on a friends boat. We where at least a mile from shore. I was drinking a beer, some other guys fished. It was A grand old time. The boat rocked a bit, I slipped. When I did, my left wrist struck a corner on the metal rail at which time the watch that was on that wrist hit in just such a way, with just enough force at just the right angle to break the spring bar. Then in what seemed slow motion, I watched my Rolex 116610LV slide off my wrist, take a small bounce and tumble into a estimated 300 feet of water.
