    New to Frogman - One dumb question

    Hi All,

    I know this must have been discussed in an old thread, but I just received a used, but practically new Frogman (GW-225E-7) and have one question.

    I come from mainly non-chronograph, automatic dive watches (Seiko, Omega, etc). Therefore, I use the unidirectional bezel to time , amongst other things.

    The question is, since most non-diver chronographs should never ever be pushed underwater...can the Frogman's 4 buttons (2 on each side) be pushed while underwater?


    Best,

    Ilham

    Short answer yes. Casio used to say its OK, on there new manuals they say not to but most here think its just Casio being extra careful so as not to be liable. Now if you have a watch that is several years old and has been subject to extreme heat or something that would damage the rubber seals thats another story

    I was pushing my Riseman buttons at 160 feet without a hitch but if that Riseman was not replaceable or worth 1400.00 instead of 140.00 I wouldn't have done it.
