G-Shock is one of the most popular lineups of watches in the world, manufactured by Casio. Generally, each Casio G-Shock wristwatch is well known for being resistant to shocks like strong vibrations and hard knocks. These timepieces are primarily designed for military, outdoor adventures and sports oriented activities. All G-Shocks virtually have some form of countdown timer, stopwatch feature, water resistance and light source.
Frogman GWF-1000 is the latest Casio G-Shock wristwatch and it is majorly designed for diving enthusiasts. In fact, these watches are the first in G-Shock Frogman line of timepieces to feature solar power and atomic timekeeping. They feature top-notch specifications and functions, which guarantee you the best value for your money. For starters, the model is resistant to water for up to 200m/660 ft and features a dedicated diver timer that has a logbook and surface interval measurement. The watch also has a moon phase and tide graph that is based on lunitidal interval and UTC offset. Its stainless steel case is DLC coated, and has an integral rubber strap which includes a double tang buckle.
Other specifications of the Frogman GWF-1000 Casio G-Shock wristwatch include: world time in 31 time zones 48 cities, manual and automatic EL backlight, 24-hour countdown timer, six band radio reception for Germany, UK, US, Japan and China, a machined aluminum bezel that has stainless steel screws at the face, five alarms and 26-month power reserve. In a picture or in person, the first thing to strike you is the sheer size of this new Frogman. At 18 mm thick and 50 mm wide and featuring a rather bold asymmetric shape, it is a watch that you will not always find on the market. The watch is relatively heavy for any digital model, but you can rest assured that it will fit comfortably on your wrist.
Compared to its predecessor, this Casio G-Shock wristwatch is a little bit more expensive, largely because of its materials. Most divers’ watches have always had some issues when it came to corrosion and this G-Shock line features plastic fitted on the metal top for trapping moisture and preventing it from coming next to the steel. Stainless steel will also rust in such conditions and the Frogman has gone further to include the DLC coated stainless steel case, a DLC coated crown and a DLC coated bezel that has steel buttons. It might be expensive but anyone in the world of diving knows too well that it is worth it.
The buttons are perhaps the most interesting choice of design in this wristwatch. The buttons on the right side are amazingly large, easy to press and grooved. The buttons on the left side are DLC coated, circular and are set deeply into the shrouds. The light and start/stop buttons seem like they are designed for one to use while underwater, which is, of course, a very thoughtful touch. In use, you will be fascinated to note that the Frogman excels more greatly than you might imagine as it is an easy to use, high-quality Casio G-Shock wristwatch.
