    New Collector's (& Limited) Edition Forgman with Diving Knife

    Sorry if this has already been posted, but I came across this article on G-Central

    https://www.g-central.com/g-shock-frogman-gwf-d1000b-1ltd-35th-anniversary-collectors-set-with-diving-knife-europe/

    OMG! Be still my beating heart!

    A 35th anniversary Depth Metre Frogman... without gold accents (don't blame anyone, just not for me) and with a GShock branded diver's knife...

    HOT DAMN!

    But yeah... as with all Frogman models, this looks like it's going to be very expensive, SPECIALLY that it is limited to 350 pieces!

    Yeesh... I almost don't want to know how much it'll cost!

    Wow, pretty cool!! Yeah, you can bet it will be insanely expensive. And with only 350 pcs, very very hard to get one at all...

    That knife looks cool as well. The Frog doesn't appear to be too different from the GWF-D1000B model. But anyway, I'll just admire this one from photos.

    Yeah, I actually prefer the "subtle" nod this has to the 35th anniversary (with just the tab on the band). Wonder if it's got the 35th Anniversary caseback carving as well

    You & me both mate :) The forgman is expensive enough already, no idea what a limited & 35th anniversary collector's edition will be like, but I can't imagine it being easy on the wallet :)

    so basically the watch is just a print on the band and a keeper, the specialness is everything else. bit like that gwg with the multitool, very cool but no way worth the price or effort tracking one down! lol

    That knife would come in handy as a paperweight. A very expensive paperweight.

    Ha...I was gonna say G-Shock brand knives are crap! I still remember those Glock branded knives are crap, hell S&W's too.

    Well.. there you go.
    I have a Squale INOX dive knife that looks like that. Nothing to do with Squale watches though.

    Really anticipating my 8th D-1000 Froggy but I'm with you guys .. Haven't seen the backplate yet, but if no real different and/ or no numbered case back (like e.g. my GWFT-1030e 30th Anniversary) then what's the fuss Good marketing & packaging though ... Definitely not for me - especially since there's a big one ( for me ) in the pipeline end of this year Let's see if one of our European F17 members will be getting one. Looking forward to it

    Sorry if this is getting tiresome cos I keep saying this. But if Casio can't be bothered making replacement resin available for the D1000 models then I won't be buying any more of them.
