    Help with WCCS Frogman

    So I have an opportunity to purchase a WCCS frogman, I believe its the DW-8201WC-7T. It's clear with the white writing and Manta rays in the background. I know nothing about frogs. Is this a good model? The watch appears to be in excellent condition, with out too much yellowing of the band. What would be a fair price for this? Could I find a replacement band and bezel for this very easily? I'm not sure how I feel about it being clear. Any help or pictures of your own would be much appreciated.

    Hard to say what a good price is without knowing the condition (pics?). But, it's a great, beautiful watch. Replacement parts may be hard to come by, but a good thing about the clear jelly is, once it goes yellow, you can dye it to the color of your liking. I've seen some beautiful dye jobs!

    Would replacement WCCS parts be hard to find, or, replacement parts of any kind? I don't have pictures, I'd rate it about an 8.5 on condition, and they are asking $200 plus shipping.

    Is it a decent first frog for me?

    Replacement parts are impossible to find if you want the original clear parts. $200-250 is roughly what they go for. A little more if it is brand new and perfect condition with no yellowing, and box and papers, etc.

    I would recommend a solid band, not a jelly band, for wearing purposes unless you don't mind the color change over time (some don't mind it)

    So if it's in decent shape it would be worth it for parts? I'm pulling the trigger I think.

    The clear resin would take a certain tase to be appreciated. maybe if the watch youre talking about is in decent condition, you can worry about spare parts at a later time.
    Im under the impression it is the same watch as this

    I misunderstood what you were saying. I thought you were saying the replacement parts run $200-$250. I saw the period on the second read. If I bought replacement parts, I wouldn't get clear. Well at least if I don't like it, I'll have a chance of getting my money back out of it.
