well everybody "needs" a Frogman, right? Only that so far none were really comfortable on my wrist and the newer ones are also way too expensive for my small budget. The DW-8200s I had were too big and uncomfy - so I can't wear the GF-8250 either despite the fact that I love the design. So I had a look at the GW-200 but prices are rising and the cheapest I could find were even more expensive than the GF-8250. So just when I thought I can live without a Frogman I saw the pic of the black dyed DW-9900 with the metal keeper - was that Tsip85 or Kung-Fusion who posted that? I can't find the thread. And just a few weeks later a DW-9900 pops up for sale on one of the German watch-forums I visit. There was also another model for sale from the same seller so - two birds with one stone and a little unwrapping:
So what have we here:
Anybody who read the "WHYI June"-thread will know:
a LNWB (like new without box) yellow GL-7500!! Hooray - since I also scored the red one on ebay I'll only need three more (which are probably the hardest to find however) to complete the series. The yellow resin looks absolutely pristine - it almost outshines the Froggy.
With the help of Kung's tutorial it was no problem to open the Froggy - however I was too lazy to remove the strap which didn't really help in getting the screwback back in place - did cost me some nerves but I made it :
and another one from the GL-7500 just because it looks so great:
