    Christmas arrived early....

    A few of you may be aware of my love of G-Shock watches .....😳

    But every since I saw the Frogman I have been in love, so when I saw LY Titanium Frog well that was a search I had to undertake.......

    So I began and it continued all my normal suppliers had none or they were at super inflated prices .....😱😭

    I almost gave up hope of getting one ......but then I spoke to Jonathan at G-Shock East he said some were coming into the UK.....at a high price but less than the super high,high prices they were going for at the auctions....

    We talked and he then tried to get one for me.....but no they were all sold ......😰😨....was I never going to get one....

    And then he said there is another .......and if I can get it it is yours ........music to my ears.........and low and behold.......


    Excitement building .......






    I know open the box ....


    Ahhhhhh😀

    This fantastic piece was now mine



    Thanks to Jonathan at G- Shock East in London.....

    And you are thinking I would like one of those well you may be in luck there are two more coming in early next year. The price is UK retail £1500 which is steep but if you are visiting the UK from outside Europe you could claim the tax back making it a bit more palatable but feel free to PM and I can give you Jonathan's details. Just remember that these are under the cost that seems to be charged by most in the auctions so far.

    In addition to this beautiful piece I picked up something rather unusual .....









    This is a really great piece and in the flesh or should that be leather and resin....it is even better.

    But this is my haul so far ..........more to be added ........😉😉

    Sorry about the low quality pictures more higher quality ones tomorrow

    Big Congratulations Simon! and welcome to club titanium 1000 froggy heaven :)

    I had a feeling there had to be some more than just a stingy 2 pieces coming to the UK out of that non-Japan 133 quota! Well done and kudos for grabbing it!

    So which number did you get? :)

    Welcome to the club Simonal and huge huge congrats. Great that the yellow wave starts all over again. Its a beautiful Frog and right before xmas is a perfect timing. Wear it in good health and kudos to Jonathan. What a great service! Not talking about the price - could be even higher than this! Great collection you got since you're on board. Well done & top notch.
