    hi Sylvester

    the only differnce is the band retainer (as shown in my sig). the brazilian has a plain colour one. the packaging is also different.
    the addict was released as a limited edition of 400 pcs, or so i thought untill i found this fourm and learned their are more as in the brazilian.

    hope this answere your question. i once asked the exact same question.
    here are some pictures of my Addict.





    regards

    Wink Re: Brazilian Frogman vs Addict Frogman

    Personally I like the Addict version more than the Brazilian. I think the Addict is also the original and that Casio relased it as the Brazilian in Japan. If I'm right the watch and package are designed by one of the designers of Addict Clothing. It's finally the other way around. Normally G-Shock's are sold as a special model in Japan and overseas it's a common basic model (like the red and yellow DW-6900H and the M-Spec DW-5600, which is released as a basic G-Shock overseas as the DW-5600B).

    Derek, be proud on your Addict! It's an awesome watch

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    The Addict/Brazilian Frogman is cool, but if you wear it often, will the camo pattern be worn out?

    Yes, potentially. The pattern is only on the surface (unlike the new camo 6900s).
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hi Sylvester,

    I think you should thank Sereph too as he is an actual owner. About the print, it's indeed on the surface only. I have a Gold Defender with a print on the watchband. I wear it pretty often, but I do not see any signs of wear yet. I think even on the Brazilian you won't see wear at the buckle harder because of the camo pattern that has white in it. At my Gold Defender you should see black if it wore off.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi Sereph -

    I also prefer the band retainer on the ADDICT, although care much for the box

    I thought it strange when I ordered an ADDICT and it turned up with a Japanese Brazilian Frogman swing tag on it:-D

    I already had the BRAZILIAN at that stage, although the ADDICT was a lot more expensive becasue of the box and brand name on the retainer..
