    Frogman, Stealthed, with Italian rubber dive band

    Hey everyone...I remembered Sjors wanted to see picks of my frogman with the 24/22mm Italian rubber dive band I modified to fit...I also semi-stealthed the watch itself...its a blue triple crown Froggie...sorry the pics suck, but my friends camera isn't that great, but at least you get the idea! Let me know what you think!

    I used Kiwi leather dye on the molded letters on the watch and then used a razor blade to modify the watch band...

    Hi Brad,

    The pics are good enough for me. The watchband looks somewhat futuristic, but fit very nice. I think your blue TC Frog looks now very nice

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    You did a very neat job with the razor blade. I dread to think how it would look if I tried that.

    Re: Frogman, Stealthed, with Italian rubber dive band

    Taking the razor blade to the band wasnt that difficult...you just need to measure real well and cut slowly and precisely...and I guess if you mess up, you can always buy another one to try and modify, though that band cost $30 (cheaper than the Casio ones) and the Panerai style buckle for the band was like $10...I thought about blacking out the blue "Frogman" logo on the watch itself, but decided that the blue "Frogman" logo sets it off nicely...I'm glad everyone likes it, i really love it...I'm really glad you approve Sjors
