    There are some mighty rare frogman watches on the bay but which one help!!!!

    I've been on the bay recently and have to say there are some very very rare frogs on there at the moment including a brand new GW-201NT-1JF and a brand new GW-200-2JF.
    What would you guys recommend as im in the market for my first frogman and would prefere to get a rarer one rather than the ones that are about today.
    Your input would be greatly appreciated, please take a look and give your opinions

    INCREASE! They are nearly $500 on eBay now. Mighty limited release I guess. Still getting the impression they will never make it to the US as parts are still not in their system here.

    i paid about 337$/30,000 Yen for mine, right after they were released, but a quick check of Yahoo.JP does reveal a 25%+ increase!

    I paid more than half that much just for the skins. Was going to wait on this one as I jumped on a few others only to have the prices come down. Of course I wait on this one and the prices only go through the roof.

    Yes but shortly thereafter they became even cheaper. I think the Kermits reached an all time low at 23.000 JPY. But now the cheapest ones are around 40.000 JPY so almost double price!

    Very lame. Are they out of production at this point?

    what a pity, I actually liked the Kermit unlike the MIRB release earlier this year..... :(

    Be very careful not to bid on one of the fakes listed...post the one ya want here first so we can determine if it's a safe bet...just reported one obvious fake in that list.

    Edit: Near the top of the main G-Shock forum is a sticky dealing with counterfeit G-Shocks...cheers
