    Frogman GW-200Z vs. Gf-8235D

    Really torn between these two.
    I am leaning towards the lighter 200
    Thoughts?

    Depends on price and your willingness to pay. If you can get the 35th at retail I would get it, or if the 200 is reasonable get it.

    Thanks for the photos! If it was me I would pick the first one, based on the display alone, I don't know the specifics of the modules. Just what I would pick based on looks.

    I'm a sucker for black and gold so I would go for the GF-8235D. I used to have a GW-200Z which I wore for almost everything and the watch looked hideous when the colorful lines of text started wearing off, while I think the 8235D wouldn't suffer it to the same degree. Eyeing one myself, in fact.

    well considering i have both and wear them regularly, the easy answer is........

    ......you should too ;)


    seriously tho, theyre both great imo. the 200 is a little smaller and lighter so it will fit a smaller wrist better but the 8235 has a nice "modern" display and youre buying part of history (and that gold caseback ). resin is also more readily available with more options if you want to change colours than the 200.

    The GW200 is nice.

    The GF-8235 is basically GWF-1000 restyled to look somewhat like the old DW8200 series. But there are some significant differences.

    Regardless, the GF-8235 module has more features than the GW200. The GW200 is pretty basic as a timepiece.

    The original is still the one I would go with, the remake is just that, a nice remake. Between these two the 200 has the history behind it, the other one not so much. Of course, if you're getting it to wear then by all means get the second one, as far as collectability, I would think the first one wins, it's just my opinion and I could be wrong too.
