Casio G-SHOCK Frogman GWF-D1000

CASIO has released its most desirable G-SHOCK to date! There’s a NEW Frogman for 2016 with Carbon fiber, DLC, Sapphire crystal and Stainless steel components guaranteed to withstand the toughest and most demanding of underwater missions.

First released in 1993, and I remember cos I bought one a couple years later, the G-SHOCK has come a long way. I haven’t bought one since, but latest Frogman as gone right to the top of my shopping list and here’s why.

This tough little amphibian has evolved more than ever with CASIO’s Triple Sensor technology that features: a new depth gauge, a digital compass (with automatic horizontal correction), and thermometer in addition to a high-visibility, a full Auto LED light and Dive Log. Okay, so that’s bath time covered!

These advancements were developed after conducting special interviews with the professional rescue team of the Japan Coast Guard. The updates help divers grasp any environmental changes at deep sea levels and provide them with real-time measurement data.

In addition to G-SHOCK’s promise of Absolute Toughness via its unique Shock Resistant structure, the Frogman delivers not only in advanced technologies but in style – this is one cool looking diver! The new Frogman was designed with a Stainless steel case with a screwdown caseback with a DLC Coating, a Sapphire crystal, and s carbon fiber insert band.

The large buttons are easy to operate even with divers gloves. The watch is also ISO 200M Water-Resistant and in addition its diving-specific diving qualities, the Frogman also takes advantage a digital watch that features:

a World Time (31 Time Zones / 48 Cities + UTC), a Time Stamp Function (date & time), 1/00th Second Stopwatch (100 Hr.), a Countdown Timer (24 Hr.), 4 Daily Alarms & 1 Snooze, and both (12/24 Hr. Time Formats).

There are three models: the GWF-D1000-1JF, the GWF-D1000B-1JF with its blue elements and the GWF-D1000K-7JR Love the Sea Baby-G.
