    Size comparison: GF-8250 vs. DW-8250

    Is it too much to hope that bands and bezels of the old DW-8250 MIY Frogman will fit the new GF-8250 Yellow Frogman?

    GF-8250-9JF -

    Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Has anybody tried a DW-8400 Bezel and strap on the new GF-8250? Any idea if they are interchangeable?

    When Casio released the solar and atomic solar G-6900 and GW-6900, many people had hopes that older DW-6900 bezels might work on them, but it turned out that the buttons was slightly off so the old bezels did not fit. Perhaps its the same thing with the GF-8250 and old DW-8200 bezels. I guess we wont know until someone try it out and see if they fit...

    I think we may have to wait until Sjors gets back with his slew of g-shock's! Do you think he'll have to declare them?

    I was just told that they are indeed interchangeable. So I just order a DW-8200 strap and bezel so I will be the one to test it and let you all know if it fits my GF-8250. I should have it by the end of the week.

    Oh, really good info! There are still some DB-8200BK bezels out there so you could do a nice stealth mod to the GF-8250 in case you don't like yellow. Basically you get a DW-8200 with an updated module - nice, nice. Makes me wonder if I should start saving and sacrifice something else from my collection to try an get one while I still can.

    I'm thinking of selling my DW-8250 for the updated model - no battery changes! And I won't have to sell my spares as they'll fit! Looking forward to confirmation. Casio actually thought ahead on this one!

    Great! You got some pics? That should look really cool I guess.

    edit: I think that's probably the first time Casio updated an older model without changing the bezels.
