I had a great little meeting yesterday with a fellow Dutch collector, who shares my interest in Casio. He recently over-indulged in some fine Japanese watches. He had several Frogmen, Riseman and 7800's incoming.
He put a 2009 limited 'Love The Sea And The Earth' Frogman up for sale last week. He didn't get any takers, so he decided to drop me a PM. We worked out a trade for some hangar queens.
I parted with an EPOS handwinder, a Citizen Calibre 2100 and an old Seiko SNKF11. I'm sad to see the first two go, but they deserve to get some wrist time.
I'm quite pleased with the Frogman. I'd been interested since they were announced, but since I already own a Glorious Gold Frog I never considered it seriously. I don't mind owning two identical watches, but the Frog is quite expensive.
So, an unexpected but pleasant addition to the collection!
