The 2016 new G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000
The G-Shock Frogman has always been Casio G-Shock’s flagship model. It is the only watch in the G-Shock collection that is a serious dive watch. For years, the Frogman has been evolving and created hits. In 2016, a new model GWF-D1000 has come out and here we are to look at it.
Like other G-Shock models, the Frogman is full of functions you need or may find obsolete. What makes the watch different is that it is water-resistant to 200m. It has a depth gauge that measures the depth of your dive and it is solar-powered. It receives radio signals up to six times a day to give you the most accurate time. It can operate for up to 23 months. Other functions include a tide graph, stop watch functions, a digital compass and a moon phase display. It also has world-time functions.
The new GWF-D1000 is available in two colors – black and blue. You can bang it on anything while you cannot bear to bang your Submariner on a tree trunk. A special edition GWF-D1000K-7JR of 1500 pieces has also been released on the theme of Love The Sea and The Earth. It features a white and blue colorway A Frogman with a theme is always a collectible item.
All in all, a G-Shock Frogman is a young-looking, trendy and reliable watch. There are other special editions which we will cover later. Please keep tuning in.
