    Dawn Black Annivesary Frogman Question

    I am about to purchase an anniversary Frogman, but I have a question about packaging? Why are some anniversary G-shocks packaged in a tin, while others are in a nice brown box, and still others seem to be packaged in a normal g-shock looking box? What's the deal? The one that I am looking at is currently posted in the private sellers forum...and it appears to be in a regular looking package. No tin...no nice anniversary box. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated before I spend too much money on a potentially fake watch. Thanks for your help!!!!

    Also, how much did these sell for when they were released?

    tin- worldwide release

    nice brown box - Japan only release

    normal g-shock looking box - sold by Amazon few months back for a very low price to save on free shipping.

    By "nice brown box" I assume you mean the carbon fiber-patterned "trunk"?

    Yep, I personally like the tins better. The Carbon Fiber is just paper anyway and the tins take up less space

    I keep being reminded of the master blue at princton watches where they screwed up the system and sent watches to folks that had orded after several of us. great deal for those that got them at 239. was unhappy when i saw some being flipped write away. I wanted one to keep not profit on thats the way it goes. but I dont have to be happy about it
