    Where is a good place to...

    ...buy a Frogman? What kind of websites do folks use to get one? I'm not looking for any specific Frogman, I just want to know a good website to get one b/c I'm starting to shop around for one. Thanks a lot!

    Kip

    P.S.> Anyone has pics of a Frogman on a smaller wrist, say 6.5-7"? I've got a smaller wrist and I would like to see how a Frogman looks on a wrist around that size. Thanks again!

    It really depends on which model you are looking for. For instance, if you like the MIRB version, you could snag that off of amazon.

    amazon, ebay. stores in the US typically have the newest only, no older models.

    ...definitely try one on with that wrist size. If you like the big look on your wrist it might work......but that watch is too big for a 6.5"-7" IMHO..

    good luck...

    Kip,

    As RTC said, if you are looking for the new MIRB (gw-200ms) then Amazon has them, that's where I found mine. For older models or "Japan only" models you can look on EBAY or this sales forum. Also you can post a WTB and might get lucky.

    This shot is of a Frogman (modified) on my 7 1/4 wrist, not the size you requested but should give you some idea of how it wears.



    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the help. I was looking at a website www.superchrono.com I don't know if anyone has heard of that one. They seem to have a decent selection of Frogman watches. I looked at Amazon too and they have a better selection than I remember them having last time I looked.

    Dave, thanks for the pic! My wrist actually measures out to 7" on the dot and that Frogman doesn't look too huge on your wrist. I'm going to try on some bigger Mudman and Gulfman watches just to get a feel for what they look like on my wrist.

    Thanks again for the info.

    my wrist is closer to 7.5" but as far as where to get a frog there are many places, i have 6 and all of them came from the sales forum, two more coming also from the sales forum and one yellow 8200 from the bay. the 200 series with the solar power are pretty nice and have a lot of features and you can customize them easily enough

    the 8200 is pretty nice but looks bigger on the wrist that the 200's

    but for the smaller wrist the 9900 is the way to go

    The sales forum, eBay or ordering from Japan are ways I've ended up with most of my Frogs.

    My wrist is around 6.5" and here's one worn loosely:

    Hmmm, I was actually looking for a Frogman too, but the last couple of pictures made me rethink my decision to get one. My wrists are a measly 6,25". I've got no problems with my Riseman, my 6900 is already a little bit on the big side but the Frogman might be just a bridge too far.

    frogs are the sweeetest watches, but if you have a smallish wrist they are going to be huge..

    try and search for the 9900 series maybe??
