    Lightbulb Help needed with identification of DW-8200 Frogman and aviator GW-3000b

    What do you guys think of those models, are those real? I compared them with official Casio photos and they look real to me, but my friends are saying it's evident fake. What WUS has to say about it? Thanks in advance!

    Both look authentic to me. Haven't seen a fake 3000B yet.

    The Frogman is a DW-8200-1A from 1995. Usually if a DW-8200 series Frog is a fake the module would be way off. You can compare photos here:

    Thank you, Feisar. As I said, I know those watches are real and I compared picture from auction with this from watchshock but my friends just didn't believe me.
    Have a great day!

    Those are both authentic, frogman looks in decent condition too.
    Real men don't need instructions.

    Someone paid 251,00 zł for it, which is 57€ or 73$. I think it is a great price, I was going to bid on this one, but I'm waiting for GW-6900 which I bought week ago and my budget is too tight. Thank you for response, unfortunetaly I have not made any bet with my friends.
    Have a great day!

    Haha no worries! You should say that you compared your friendship with your friends to those on WUS and say "jokingly" that your actual friendship is "fake"

    Those are only facebook friends from a G-SHOCK group, no one who is more important for me than my watch because I never met any of them face to face. And what you said is actually true, WUS community is more important for me.
    Have a great day!
