    Frogman question

    I am still considering getting another Frogman and
    have narrowed down to the following:
    dawn black
    master blue
    black spots
    icerc Gw-202k-2jr

    assuming I can actually find these,which is your favorite?
    Any of these more collectible / rarer/ more expensive?
    what would be a good complement to my military/MIRB
    Frogman ?

    Thanks
    chris

    If you want a complement then I think it is actually the Glorious Gold GW-225E one that is transcluscent white with golden display and golden case that shines trough a little especially when wet, thats a thing of beauty and on the opposite color scale compared to the MIRB.

    But of the ones you counted up then my fave is the Dawn Black!

    I like the GW-202K-2JR the best, but it's definitely the hardest to find of the bunch. The others are all really great, but have a similar black look to the MIRB one. The Dawn Black seems to have the highest success rate.

    By far and away the GW-202K-2JR is the rarest, most hard to find and the most expensive. Think at least $900 for a BNIB one.

    Here is a picture to consider.

    Oh how I want a Master Blue! I have decided to keep both of my GW-200 series Frogs permenantly and really want another one, but need to make a hustle to gather up funds.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I think I've finally begun to settle in with the six I have. I have yet to wear my DB and rarely wear the red jelly. The silver one used to be my beater but now it's my olive G-7900. Mostly I wear either the Brazilian or MB and sometimes the GG which currently has a Kermit bezel and bright green band on it. I don't see getting any more unless I finally take the dive to get a blue jelly but I hope that's a while off as they are pretty expensive lately. I'd see myself getting a GW-7900 first.

    I do agree if you have only the two you are dangerously low on Frogmans and you best hurry to get another.

    As for the thread and what to get, Id go with GW-202K-2JR as I don't have one and the jellys are sweet. Though any on that list will do nicely.

    Re: Frogman question

    Like Joakim said the GG is one of the most unique Frogs you can see the gold Ti case through the bezel and like he said when it gets wet it is almost translucent

    I have a Dawn Black that I got a GG bezel and strap from casio usa. I have not put he black bezel strap back on yet. Then you have 2 Frogs in 1

    Good point. I have both (GG and DB) and never wear the DB. If I wanted that feel I could put one of the DB skins on my GG. ...and a GG would complement the MIRB well instead of another slightly different looking dark Frogman. So I change my vote to GG. Keeping in mind I think the 202k is clearly the rarest and what I'd go with but then again I have the others asides from the Black Spots which just doesn't impress me.

    Any price on the GW7900 yet. I like both G and GW's will depend on price and if the GW has the dual stopwatch
