After being stuck in customs for two weeks my MIRB (GW-200MS-1D) Frogman finally arrived I basically bought this one because I was intrigued by Frogs. I couldn't see myself spending double of what this one costs (and I still can't BTW) on a Brazilian Frog or a Kermit (still love both) and I wanted to see what's the fuss about Frogs. I really like the MIRB look. The resin is very difficult to capture (esp. in the current poor autumn light). I've included the second pic, because IMHO it catches the color of the resin best. The "specs" are hardly noticable in reality. I love the color of the display - it's definately NOT pink(ish) as suggested on some stock pics. It's more like bronze
Despite the large size, it fits my tiny wrist better than the Mudman does!
The minor negatives: 1. The backlight isn't as bright as on other (solar) Gs - maybe because of the colored display? 2. No real GMT/2nd time zone: There are 10 pre-programmed popular diving sites, but no 24 time zones. I live in the CET and for instance the time zone I travell most (GMT/LON) is not available. Mind you, the pre-programmed zones can pre changed into custom zones.
Overall - for the price I paid ($255) a pretty cool watch. At the moment I can't see myself spending twice the price on another GW-200 (as cool as they might look). The new atomic Frog is cool too, and I might be tempted some day when prices should drop below $500...
Till then I'll just enjoy this one
