    Kermit in Brazil...

    Just got this via fromjapan.co.jp (2nd time I used them and I'm very happy with them)... had to give the Brazilian original band/bezel a break. Still have a slight mode to make before I'm done. Not sure how I like the word "Frogman" in blue on the face with the green bezel. I'll have to try it with a GG or 200S base maybe.

    I heard they all sold out in Japan already. I didn't get the entire watch just the band/bezel.

    I put it on my GG and it looks a lot better IMO. Oddly though the green doesn't trick the eye into thinking the display is also green like the dyed set I mad on my own. Guess the Kermit green is just too bright. My work looks gold or almost brown compared to the Kermit.

    It doesn't have the EL image (unless I use the Brazilian, I prefer the GG base) and it's a gold back but the savings is worth it. eBay has them going for nearly $500. Too steep for me on a watch that was just released.
