    Q + D "King" Shots w/ Frogman

    Cellphone pics w/ taken under yellowish fluorescent lights at my office. I added a little white balance to remove the yellow and it's sort of goulish and clinical. Sorry! I need to use my good camera and some sunlight, sorry!

    But to give a comparison of the size of the GXW and atomic Frogman, here are some photos of two recent acquisitions, along with a standard classic G, the GW5600J-1.

    I tried it on in one of the local shops here in Montreal, the only version available for us Canadian is the non atomic black and red, and just found it too big.. I still love it, but doubt I will purchase it..

    **edit - thanks for the great pics!

    Thanks for this! I've been itching for a GWX-56 but now I know I won't be able to pull it off with my smallish wrists.

    But thanks.

    Yes, great comp shots.

    The GWX-56, never mind the GW-1000 frogmen, are simply too large for my wrists to maintain any form of aesthetic proportion or indeed sense. I say that because any presently existent G can survive most incidents we're going to be able to fling at them, without the need for any additional (and probably superfluous) shock absorbers.

    Smacks of marketing to me...
