    Question Triple Crown Frogman ?

    Hey guys,

    Is there anything different with the Triple Crown models as compared to the other GW-200 Frogmans? I've heard some say that they are a different size, and/or not as substantial as the other GW-200s.

    I also seem to see them more often than other models for sale in various places. Are they not as popular as some other Frogs, or is there another reason for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    John

    From what I have seen, the cases are identical to the other GW-series Frogs - however, I have not seen one in person. I think they are great-looking watches, though.

    The TC Frogs are the same size as the other 200s. They are more numerous than a lot of other 200s because they had a bigger production run than the others. Despite this, they are starting to get difficult to find now.

    Hi,

    DJ is right, exactly the same size. There were 3 colours: Blue, Green (more a greyish colour) and Red. Also have the 2422 module with a TC backlight and a TC motief on the strap.

    Cheers,

    Pieter

    Yep, what they said. They're the same size and build quality. There's just a few aesthetic differences from other Frogs. I really like the shiny polished titanium caseback.

    Thanks guys, that's what I thought. Some seller was saying that the TCs were flimsy compared to the other GW-200s. Didn't make any sense to me, but thought I'd ask since I'm new to the world of G-Shocks. Glad to be able to confirm that he is FOS.

    I have all 3 and they are exactly the same as all the other solar Frogmans' save for the triple crown logo on the caseback, band and el display as pieter says.
    The colour of the 'eye' surround and the lettering on the bezel is also matched to the particular colour of the band.
    Real men don't need instructions.
