    Frogman shape

    Does anyone know why the Frogman has a strange, asymmetrical design?

    I believe it's to allow free movement of the wrist, which could be a problem with a large-diameter watch.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I agree when you view the watch side on, the weight of the watch is balanced away from the wrist, stopping it digging in to the back of the hand.

    Or it could just be that it looks damm cool

    Hah, yeah, that's exactly it. Actually a friend of mine asked me about that yesterday and I posted an explanation on my blog. Another question is why have the costs of Frogmen almost doubled in the last few years?

    Hi

    I think prices keep going up as more and more limited editions keeps coming out, and they are made in Japan models and have that harder to get aspect which makes them more appealing to collectors, I think Casio knows its mainly collectors who buy them and not your usual guy off the street after a cheap digital watch.

    Cheers

    I do not believe that the MSRP has changed, so you can blame the retailers for being greedy.

    Hi Buzzbait

    That means its also partly our fault for parting with our hard earned, maybee we should stop buying till they drop the prices?

    Too bad for the guys who wear frogs on their right hand. They lose out on the intended comfort of the asymmetrical design.
