    Frogman test?

    Does anyone know if Casio individually water tests EVERY Frogman, or do they take random samples?

    It is an ISO rated divers watch so every watch is individually tested.

    A G-Shock will undergo 183 separate tests.
    Casio have shipped over 1 Billion Timepieces.

    No, it would be impossible to test each and every watch that leaves the factory.

    Edit: Ok, maybe the Froggy gets special treatment. Thanks Mitch.

    The Frog is ISO rated so all of them get tested - I think it’s to 200M.

    Ok, conflicting answers here.....I understand the ISO rating, and maybe they don’t need to test each individual Frog, just wondering if they do. I would almost think there could be some liability risk if they didn’t, as it’s rated for scuba diving.

    To meet the ISO all the watches must be tested. Have a look on Google for what the ISO requires.

    Frogman test?

    I spoke with the head of compliance for ISO standards for an international company in another industry and he stated the production facility must pass scrutiny for compliance with manufacturing processes and product design and must submit pieces for random testing to certify they comply.

    That seems much more feasible over testing every piece.

    Edit: From Wiki...

    Diving watches are tested in static or still water under 125% of the rated (water) pressure, thus a watch with a 200-metre rating will be water resistant if it is stationary and under 250 metres of static water. ISO 6425 testing of the water resistance or water-tightness and resistance at a water overpressure as it is officially defined is fundamentally different from non-dive watches, because every single watch has to be tested. Testing diving watches for ISO 6425 compliance is voluntary and involves costs, so not every manufacturer present their watches for certification according to this standard.

    The Frogman is the only g-shock that conforms to ISO 6425. So I don't see why it wouldn't be feasible to test every watch.

    Another industry is another industry. Doesn't mean that watches are treated in the same manner with respect to ISO 6425.

    Donít forget ISO 6425 compliance isnít merely pressure but also thermal and antimagnetic. So each watch would be required to go through pressure testing beyond rated depth, plus a hot plate test to certify resistance to thermal shock as well as exposure to greater than a/m4800 magnetic field for X amount of time. I think resistance to corrosion is also part of the testing. So, does every watch get treated to every one of those tests? If testing is required for every piece to meet compliance Iíd guess they would have to be, no?
