    GW-5000 vs GWF-1000 Frogman

    Most people know these two watches and they are both great. I'm interested in both of them, but since I already own a DW-5000SL, I'm planning on ordering a Froggie. Maybe I'll get a GW-5000 when the DW-5000SL is a few years old.

    Just out of curiosity I was wondering about the difference in quality between these two watches and which of these two you guys like the most. Is the resin of these watches from the same quality?

    So let's see which of these two is the best top model among the G's and which is the most popular.

    Tough call. I own both and can say both are terrific. The resin on both are different and the GW-5000 is the nicest resin on any G. The build quality on both are excellent. The Atomic Frog is a very large watch which not everyone can pull off. The GW-5000 on the other hand is almost a perfect size. If I had to choose one I would pick the GW-5000. If I had to sell my entire collection the GW-5000 would probably be the last to go. It's a watch I could wear every day of the year without any regrets.

    I only own a GW-M5600 but I replaced the strap with the one from GW-5000 and it feels muchbetter.

    I also ordered teh GW-M5610B wich has the same module as the GW-5000. The only problem is that the GW-5000 is a bit pricey.

    Nice!
    If I didn't have the Spike Lee, I'd buy the GW-5000 too. The Frog is big idd, but that doesn't bother me that much. I have enough watches to wear (most of them are non-G's).

    The atomic frogman is a lot more interesting and fun, only problem is that it is very big, so many people will not feel comfortable wearing it.

    GW 5000 can also be too small for some hands.
    I think that Frogman is perfect.

    GW-5000 all the way. The classic design brought bang up to date!

    I have the GW-5000. I think this watch is a bit "dull". Wearing a G must make you feel "up", 5000 isn't interesting at all...

    GW-5000 - frustrating that time is not displayed in all modes as no doubt they could easily have achieved this.

    But I never regret wearing it - good sign for a watch.

    I have both but find myself wearing the frogman more because I have big wrists. Both are really comfortable to wear though. I think both should be part of a casio collection. So over time just get both. That's my opinion.
