Broke one a long time ago. I had just cleaned it and put it in the drying rack, when I moved the faucet to rinse something else: SNAP!

600. I have been brewing for about two years without a broken hydrometer. I have now broken one the last two batches I have made.

Not that it matter much, but I know this thread already hit 600. Looks like it got messed a while back. I think it should be 627 now. Fortunately I haven't broken another one yet - though I did slightly melt the tube for one.

Ok. 628. Putting it away and the skinny end simply disintegrated in my fingers. Fortunately no cuts.
