    And, it's also one of the most heavily faked watches just like the Rolex Submariner too.

    They're only making limited editions. It used to annoy me before I went off them.

    Yep, I am actually starting to go off the things to, so hard to work out what is worthwhile and what isn't.

    Look at these 2 different serial numbers, but apparently the same watch.

    I am not sure but I think this seller is pretty reputable. Others might have first hand experience with him. I have not heard anything bad about him.
    Hope eveyone is well......Frogs are still cool!!!!!!

    Why only make it limited edition?

    It's easier to get a Rolex Submariner and you could get almost 40 to 50 Frogmans for the price of one Rolex Submariner.

    Not really sure what you mean?

    They have different model numbers DW-8201-2T & DW-8200WC-7T, 2T for blue & 7T for white as in the lettering.
    As far as the serial numbers, I only saw pics that show the white letters 7T version and it looks right: 850211 = 1998 May #211.

    Re: Why is a Frogman so hard to find out all the other "Master of G's?

    In Japan, the blue letter version frog is far rarer than the white letter version. So there should be a price gap between them.

    I have both submariner and frogs and love them equally. In terms of a specific frog model, the available numbers are smaller than submariner. But if you take all frog models into account, it is of course easier to get in ebay or Yahoo Japan. The key is you know where to get it. In terms of $ comparison, one ordinary submariner is about 25 ordinary frogs.

    Hope this helps.

    It isn't that hard to find . . . just expensive when you do.
