Frogman is one of the development watch models of the G-Shock which is designed to be more water resistant than the G-shock model in general. Frogman was inspired by the problems of professional divers to provide diving watches with superior specifications equipped with sensors, extraordinary specs, and reliable water resistance.
While developing the latest Frogman, Shinji Saito (one of the famous Casio’s technicians) visited many professional divers who goes on the underwater rescue work frequently. Saito even took a diving course, underwent an exam, and got a national license. Armed with that knowledge, the Frogman’s development keeps on continue to have the perfect design and capabilities.
It was first launched in November 1993 and till now, still remains as one of the main icons of G-Shock. Frogman is the first G-Shock model that has a 200 meter ISO Diver standard certificate. This timepiece can last up to a depth of 200 meters below the surface of the water. With the tough feature, solar battery charging is not only sourced from sunlight but also other light resources.
Some types are equipped with a “triple sensor” feature, which is capable of measuring water depth, temperature while also carrying out compass functions. Although having many features does not mean that customers who buy this watch are only for those who like to dive. Many Frogman collectors also love the unique shapes, color variations, and various “limited edition” products from these series.
What’s more, the Frogman line is a solid limited edition release and the watches are exchanged as collectibles. So there will be just 350 watches of the Frogman 35th Anniversary Edition around the world.
The band circle includes the Frogman logo including the »35th Anniversary« logo and a numbered etching (01/350-350/350). The version arrives in a rough open air case with a G-SHOCK customized dive knife from the Italian brand SEAC. The case accompanies a numbered metal identification under which the client manual and the guarantee card are found.
