    Hi michindi,

    here in my country, all Frogs are really hard to find. Close to like a slim or none kind of a scenario. If a Frog is displayed in a dealer, chances are that timepiece is history the moment it is displayed.

    In Canada answer is "all of them" since you have no hope whatsoever that you'll find ANY frog whatsoever in ANY Canadian store even in dive shops (that seem to be loaded with St.Moritz watches that they can't keep in stock... hot sellers apparently...)

    So from that perspective: defenetly ANY... from collector perspective it has to be Brazillian and BlackHelios if we talk new frog release... if you talk "old" frog release than search the forum for Vah Vah posts... his collection of rare old frogs is something I've never seen matched by anyone.

    I will say the Blue Jelly frog (GW-202K-2JR) among the GW-2xx series.

    To be honest I think the basic Navy non special edition or limited edition GW-200-2JF (and the export model 2DR)

    You can find Brazilian, Gold Defender,Black Helios, Black Spot and other Frogs with a small bit of work. They are not cheap but are reasonably easy to find if one looks over the net or eBay.

    Now by contrast try finding the basic GW-200 model that was selling on the Casio Japan site for years. I have tried to find this simple non limited edition for a year or so without any luck

    Cheers

    Hi Wah,

    I LOVE the blue jelly frog

    Would you know the running price for it nowadays??

    I saw it once or twice, of course not personally.. but only through some pics posted

    I think one came from you... if I remember correctly, it was an image you took of the displays at javy's which included the lovely blue jelly.
    best regards,

    Kirk M.
