    Question About Two Extra Screws On Frogman...

    Hi,

    I changed the band for my Frogman today, and wondering about two screws on the top of rubber insulation. What the purpose of those screws? for decoration?

    good question

    my guess would be they are not really functional, but look cools nonetheless

    I heard this questions several times already. These screws are just estetical and have no function other than to make the watch give it's tough appearal.

    One more reason to like the old ones......

    It's disappointing to me to an extent when you see that form does not follow function on many G's. Unfortunately, lots of G's are designed not to be no nonsense tool watches, but tool watches with useless fashion cues added. You see this in the Master series quite a bit.

    Yeah I agree with petew. Reminds me of the non functioning air scoops manufacturers put on cars.

    Those screws may possibly be to add strength, although they also look good. A FROGMAN without then, non, no, no:-D

    Anybody think those two (2) screws are looked like the eyes of a frog?
    I made people look at my wrist today because the weird look of frogman without insulation rubber skin. I like this band very comfortable. Thanks for all of wus member ideas.

    The fact that two useless screws are needed to give the Frogman amore trustworthy look, makes the watch actually less credible for me...

    Hi Hanze -

    The FROGMAN is a great watch and I'm sure if you get one, those screws will not be noticed
