I am in the process of acquiring my first Frogman and I have run into a bit of a dilemma. I want my first Frogman to be non-atomic. I am sure I will buy a GWF1000 sometime in the next few months, but I want to start with a smaller Frogman.
I have narrowed it down to the MIY GF8250 and the Final Frogman GW200Z (BNIB). Both watches are around $300-$350. As a side note, my absolute favorite looking Frogman is the Dawn Black GW225, but at the current market price of $600 it puts that configuration in Solar Atomic territory and I would just buy a GWF1000 for that amount.
So...between a MIY GF8250 and a Final Frogman, which would you choose? I love the titanium case and back on the Final Frogman from a functional (as well as aesthetic) perspective. I also really like the color scheme of the Final Frogman. All of my G-Shocks are black and I want to add a little color. I am not sure I like the bright yellow on the 8250, but I do like the Moon Phase and the Tide Graph. I am concerned the MIY would be less versatile, and it would be easier to match the Final Frog to more outfits. Am I missing anything? Which is more comfortable? Which has the better module? Any and all opinions are welcome. Thanks!
