    If you go via the ebay route then remember this famous saying: "If it looks too good to be true then it probably is".

    You'll find lots and lots and lots of fake frogmen on ebay.

    Another option would be to bid on yahoo auction japan or Rakuten.
    Usually the sellers on yahoo do not ship internationally, so you may need to find some agent to place the bid for you and then resend the item, and there's going to be a comimssion fee. Even that it's usually cheaper than the ones sold on ebay. However the whole process is quite complicated.

    Here's the search result from yahoo jp:

    Just got a new frog this summer.



    Jelly frogman and some Japanese/Chinese jelly.
    (tastes more like pudding actually. it's made of red bean mixed with chestnut / milk or green tea flavour)

    8200 frogmans have long been discontinued, only bet is ebay or japan auction sites. Good luck.
    Couple of watches here and there

    Thanks for all your replies.
    Actually I found one Frogman DW-8200 men in smoke model for about £150 ($250) - I am 99% sure it is original but what do you think? If original - is the price ok for that model? Watch comes with box and papers I think.

    Thank you

    The price is OK. It's possible to get one for 10 or 20 pounds less, but generally one has to spend several months on Japan auction sites to pick up a nice deal. And the watch may not be in such a good condition.

    Black bezels and straps are not difficult to get. Look for the replacement band for DW-8200BK. (all black, stealthy theme) The only problem is about the price. A set of brand new bezel and straps on the ebay are generally around $100. There are also plenty of them on Yahoo Japan for less than $40, but again buying through agents is quite complicated and wastes a lot of time.
