    Question Frogman question

    Hey guys, is there a currently manufactured Frogman that is just plain black?

    No special edition, no white or blue or purple or pink band, no Triple Crown of Hawaiian Dolphins and Helios Yachting, just a plain black Frogman with a plain black band.

    Any such beast?

    Not that I know of... actually it does sound very funny that a simple basic black Frogman is actually more rare now :-D

    It's a strange world... B-)

    Re: Frogman question

    Like I said... no special edition.

    I simply can't afford to spend $500+ on a watch. I am thinking about a Frogman, but can't find a "regular" model that appeals to me. All I want is a black bezel, black band Frogman.

    I like the black TC model that's widely available, but I could do without the Triple Crown of Surfing imprint, etc.

    Re: Frogman question

    then your answer is no

    i don't call frogman that fits your requirement

    or maybe you can just get a set of black bezel and strap and you will have a black frogman of your choice

    Actually, the bands of the current 3 versions of the Triple Crown Frogs are khaki, red and navy blue, no blacks unfortunately, even though the bezels are. The navy blue version is the closest to having a black or dark coloured Frog.

    Replacing the bezel and bands with black ones will be very challenging as most Casio centres, agents and distributors are all out of stock. I even tried to get them from Casio Japan via the local Casio agent but no luck... no black bezel, no black bands, no black Frogman anything... unless you've got about US$500-600 to spare :-D

    They're hard to get Wal

    You want the Japanese version BLACK HELIOS or BLACK SPOTS which were limited edition Japan only models..

    Original price, just under 27,000 JPY.

    These things go up in value as they are rare.

    HAPPY hunting

    All the best - OZZIE
