    What is "The G"?

    I've seen some Gs referred to in this fashion, mostly on Japanese sites. What's it mean? Also what's with the G/GW/DW designation stand for? I know that GW means Tough Solar/Wave Ceptor on all watches except that Frogs get the GW designation and they haven't got Wave Ceptor.

    "The G" was the name given (not only in Japan) to the (first) models that have a Tough Solar and Waveceptor function. The name is not used that much anymore. I think because you now have Master of G models that have both these functions.

    Fair enough, but that about the fact that all other models designated GW have Wave Ceptor, but the Frogman doesn't?
