    Wink 75th G-Shock to my Frogman GWF-1000 Collection.. to be continued...?

    Here it is, a special anniversary G-Shock to commemorate my 75th G-Shock.

    NOTE: This post is a work in progress, just wanted to post all the photos before the commentary

    This G-Shock has eluded me for months, but I was able to locate one, brand new in box, in Japan. After lengthy "negotiations", it's finally arrived.

    Trunk-a-licious!

    Note: Both Frogman trunks are identical in color - just a rushed iPhone shot.

    Matching Frogman trunk cases for the GWF-1000G and 1000B

    One usually do not equate the words "dressy" and "elegant" with a Frogman, but this the dressiest Frogman one can own.
    I wished I had picked this one up sooner, but I couldn't snag the B & G at the same time. The hunt for the even more elusive 1000G was consuming me.

    Congrats on the new arrival... I have to say having seen all of these in the flesh, the 1000G is still my favourite. It just looks 'extra special'

    Now we're just waiting for the Rising Red to join the family ;)

    (...and maybe a Mastermind and a Murakami somewhere down the line lol)
