    Wademan or triplecrown Frogman?

    I came across a shop selling a Terje haakonsen Wademan and Triplecrown frogman . Both are of the same price. So which one should i buy? I can only afford one..

    Difficult choise as I'm a WADEMAN-lover...but also the TC-frogman is nice and it's tough-solar, the WADEMAN isn't....(and I just paid 40 EURO to replace batteries in one of my WADEMANS).

    The TC Frogman . It's been the best watch I think I have ever owned: accurate, good looking (lots of compliments) & best of all, it's a G-Shock. Either way, you can't go wrong. I have never owned a Wademan but I can realy say that my Frogman is one of the ebst investments I've ever made.

    Wink Re: Wademan or triplecrown Frogman?

    I would go for a Frogman. Personally I don't like Wademans. The blue Wademan is not really a Terje Haakonsen Signature series model, but dedicated to a company called Haaken. I saw there is a lot of confusion of that model, because Haaken looks like Haakonsen. They are also produced in around the same time.

    Cheers,

    I would say get a WADEMAN as they are a lot rarer.

    If you are after a basic Triple Crown FROG, you can get one anytime on EBay as their is no shortage..

    Get a WADEMAN first

    All the best - OZZIE

    Re: Wademan or triplecrown Frogman?

    In re: rarity, Ozzie is right, the wademan is more difficult to get than a triple crown frogman (outside of japan, anyway). I am assuming they are both under 200us.
    I had a Terje wademan for a short time, but just did not care for it.
    Whichever way you go, I am sure you will be happy. Just be careful -- this is addicting. B-)

    Answer lies in your preference on size......

    IMO, it depends on your preference for size of watch. I LOVE the Wademan bc it is truly HUGE. It has an unmistakable wrist presence- you CAN'T miss it.

    The down side- I don't like the band assembly as it uses 2 sets of screws the hold the band together. Mine fell out all on its own and I am having a bear of a time getting the parts.

    As for the TC Frog, It is enroute as we speak as is a NOS Raysman. I am sure they will live up to the hype (BIG size). Currently I am wearing a 2300B which is nice but too small for me.

    I would get the WAdeman, they are hard to find. The TC frogman is everywhere on the BAy right now. JMO.

    good luck! O|
