I'm not a diver so I won't touch the arguments for/against either Frogman as a dive watch.
They are both awesome Frogs. Today, you get a pretty good value if you can find a reasonably priced GWF-1000. But, the D1000 does give some substantial upgrades - the c/f strap, the depth meter, the compass, the time stamp button, surfacing alert feature, sapphire crystal, and what appears to be a sharper/more legible display. Naturally you will pay more for all that, especially on a much newer model.
I own both, & like Worker said, either one is a good choice.
My apologies, take that back, newer screen Frogman looks more like GW-200 Frogman (pre-GWF-1000 Frogman), but it's missing shark fin band tip, and it is not as of centered as i liked in GWF-1000, plus blue deco screws are just little too much, but again i just don't dig first 4 color models that Casio came up. Im sure it will change if the right color will come along.
So i do believe both are fine choice, whatever rocking your boat when u diving
I know that casio will never will make negative Frogman, but something like this will be my last Frogman i ever buy

WE WANT MORE!
I've had my GWF-1000G for some time and a while back I went to handle the GWF-D1000B and it's definitely more solid-feeling, also heavier too. Honestly, the D1000B does indeed look better with all the improved innards, but the price is quite a put-off for me, costs over SGD$400 (almost US$300) more than what costed me for the 1000G, both at RRP.
Though very tempted to buy, but couldn't bear to spend that kind of money since I don't dive as well, hence the depth meter will be useless.
So yeah...will just stick to my 1000G for now, though the new Frogman seems to be more popular now.
