    Thank you for your compliments, CAPF2005!

    What kind and nice person!!!
    you are, too!

    This thread is great, it's a big fun to have contact with G-Shock fellows across the continents!



    Frogster is now on the way to Brazil... I send you the tracking number via PM- and I hope Frogster will arrive in Brazil just right in time for carnival!

    Re: Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    I am very happy with your words RHJones

    Our Frogster is already traveling to the other side of the Atlantic.

    It will take a swim in the warm waters of our beaches.

    Our Frogster, a true ambassador joining friends in every corner of this planet. The proof that simple things are the best.

    Re: Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    Thank you, CAPF2005! I'm really looking forward to see pictures of Frogster in Brazil!

    Just before Frogster left my house, I checked it for accuracy:


    This picture was shot straight after DW-295 arrived: +1m8s



    Before departure, 21 days later: +1m37s

    Frogster gained +29 seconds in three weeks
    A little bit more than it is specified (+/- 30s/month afaik)


    Edit: I have read the operator's manual (module 1874) it says +/- 15s/month... that means Frogster is clearly out of specs. But who cares. It doesn't reduce the fun, just for scientific reasons!

    Hmmm ... you're comparing two watches against each other ... maybe one has +drift and the other a -drift ...

    For a non-atomic watch, you would be right! But, I think my comparison is correct: I compared Frogster to atomic watches which have both synched less than 24 hours before comparison, so the error should be about 1 second in maximum... You can see in the pictures of GW-9010 and GW-M850 the "G"-logo in the display, proving that they have both synced.

    Wise words RHJones,

    Our Frogster must have the universal right to lose the youth

    Will continue to be our ambassador clock.

    Of course! But Frogster's behaviour is different from people- usually, human beings do not tend to run faster while growing older... and I think, Frogster can't complain. It just gains seconds due to its age. It's quite better than me, I gain kilograms while ageing

    RHJones and Friends,

    Sunset at Bahia Yacht Club.

    A hug for everyone.

    Frogster will come here.

    Beautiful shots, CAPF2005! Though I have to admit that these pictures make me feel a bit unhappy with the cold german winter, I'm sure Frogster will feel very comfortable in Bahia- like his buddy Rangeman does...
