    Frogman GWF-1000B-1JR imperfection?

    Hi, I received GWF-1000B-1JR today,
    I'm pretty happy with the watch, but I think its 99.999% perfect
    As you can see from the pic little marking (in red circle) isn't that supposed to be a square like the rest? top bit also has sharp angle. it looks like kind of paint on the top of the solar panel..

    does anyone have similar shape?

    I am not sure what you are talking about, the shadows in the red circles?

    Thanks for the reply and support!
    I've gone bit of an OCD after purchasing most expensive watch in my life.

    I did some research in this forum, looking at a lot of pictures of new frogman, it was hard to see the tiny detail, but I did find one picture seemed to be having maybe similar inconsistant markings as mine.

    Anyways as long as it works properly!

    That looks like a dust speck on top of the glass to me.

    This one is the perfect example I found in the net..

    If you compare this one to the bottom-left red circle, you could see the difference.

    Yes, the glass is clean. Try wiping the glass, or use an air blower before taking a picture. If it is still there you have an imperfection. (By the way, can't you see all of the other dust particles on the other parts of the watch?)

    Trust me, I know that feeling.

    I too, had issues with my Master Blue Frog when I got it a few years back..

    Of course... it may not be an issue to all, but heck... again, like you I expect to get a flawless unit to match my hard-earned buck. No imperfections. No matter how minor it may seem.

    But we live in an imperfect world.

    And yes, unfortunately I have that nasty OCD bug stamped on my system too and it took me quite a long time to figure out a "resolution".



    I'm darn sure it will DRILL your insides until you convince yourself that you can live with its flaws.



    Good luck mate.. but hey, that's a mighty fine frog you got there.


    'Grats.
    best regards,

    I think those are notches in the solar panel to help tell the assembler which side of the panel is the top and which is the bottom. So notch on the far right side (or left of the barrier) = panel is facing up. As for why every other notch is angled and the rest are perfectly shaped, I don't know the real answer to that. My only guess is that panels may have been a different batch and at some point whatever factory that produced them decided to make an adjustment to their machine.

    edit: I just checked my other solars and the only one that has the same notches as the Frogman is my GW-5600BCJ. I can't find the any visible markings that could help determine the panel orientation on my other watches, perhaps the markings are on the outer rim of the panel. Of course I can be completely wrong on why they have those marks it may not really matter on which way the panel can be installed, but I can't think of any other reason
