Because I want one!
Yes. I own a Frogman for diving and that's why I have it.
I dive with my Frogman but it's a great casual watch too!
The only water my Frogman has seen is in the shower.
Why own a Frogman if you aren't a Frogman!

"Time is too precious to keep it on an inexpensive watch"
I'm not a diver. But I do wear my yellow Froggy snorkeling in Hawaii, in the pool & the shower.
Mechagodzilla find me a G-Shock in Tokyo!!
I don't take any of my watches to shower but I only sport with a G-SHOCK. I actually love Frogman's design. I do wish they can be easily find with a fair price but what the hell, if that is what I have to pay for a watch design I like. I'll do it. I wear my Frogman and not treated it as a collectible item. All G-SHOCks are equally rated in my mind. I don't favor Frogman more.
They are great casual watches, but never suitable for many occasion I often encounter, like right now I am out of town for a conference, for such events I would never be able to bring my frogman with me, but always a understate square, like GW5600J. (By the way, in this conference, I just saw a guy wearing a DW5000C! and he has been wearing it for 20 years, the resin looks shinny but it seems it is still in pretty good shape.)
Anyway, even though they are far away from getting my most wrist time, I love the design and quality of frogman. In fact, right now, I think, finally, I am going to give in to the temptation for the MIBR GWF-1000RD
no idea why i bought one
I don't own one, but think they look great. Just too pricey.
I bought my Frog (DW 6300) because the price was simply too good to pass up. I want another one for two reasons: I love the way they look, and because I CAN'T have one (due to price). I treat my Frog just like any other G. While I actually take my watches off before I shower, I swim in them frequently...lakes, pools, and sea water. I don't plan on diving any time soon, but if I did, I wouldn't put my Frog on just because it was a Frogman and ISO certified. I'd dive with whatever G I happened to have with me.
