    NEW "Mastermind" Atomic Frogman... $1000... I want one!



    It seems that Mastermind has collaborated with Casio to create a new limited edition version of the still unreleased GWF-1000-1 Atomic Frogman. This diver watch has a stealthy black look and the skull and crossbones logo in the backlight. There's not many details at this time, but it's safe to say that this one will have a crazy high price. The regular version retails for around $725 USD, so who knows, this one could be around $1,000 USD.

    ...........................................

    I know some of you are straight away going to point out the price and that this could bring about the whole "G-Shocks are supposed to be cheap" arguement but I seriously want this watch!!!

    I have a feeling that finding one in the UK will be an impossibility though!

    Is there anyone in Japan willing to help me out sourcing one?

    For me they can stick it where the sun doesn't shine. It's way to expensive for me...

    Looks good tough

    I'd like to see a 3/4 or side view. Looks like the strap is less of an integrated, and more a regular spring-bar or screw-type. That's a look often associated with a higher price bracket too....

    The price may not be as crazy as it may seem... after all, a BNIB RealBlack generally costs around $900. And a set of replacement straps and bezel costs $100.

    Somehow the display looks less busy when the rest parts of the watch is completely black. I'm thinking about a white or jelly version might not be so bad either.

    You're not far from the truth mate ...all-black resin and reddish/rust display is always a win-win combo when it comes to G-shocks IMO.

    The strap does seem to be a little "detached' from the case, as others have noticed, almost as if designed as afterthought.

    KVM888, good eye there mate, the dial text seems crooked indeed, maybe you're right, this could be just a pre-prod piece or a mockup of a real deal.
    Let's wait and see...

    They are not screws they are rivets, if you are refering to the 4 "bolts" on the case. They have no function only for cosmetics...

    But this Mastermind Atomic Froggie is definetly my fave, how awesome

    But the price makes it a dream for now...
