Hi mates,

Just wanna share my views and feelings onthe new Frogman.
Just saw it at a Casio Showroom in Singapore :)

Was excited when i glimpsed it but upon closer inspection, I felta bit let down.
The pinkish screen is weak in colour and the strap looks "cheap" in my view.
its not totally black but has bit of shimmering stuff???
No offence to those who like it.. to each his own. :)

I still think the Real Black is the King!
So i guess its not for me..

What do you guys think?

Based on the photos I've seen, I agree. Casio blew it.

When you say new you mean the new model with the atomic not the new release of the 200 series (MIRB), right?

That one seems okay to me, I did order a band/bezel set. Not compelled enough to get the entire watch. Most likely will do the same with the next one, the green one. Have enough Frogman already just like to get the band/bezels at this point.

That seems like a very good system.

I think the Frogman/Riseman in the MIRB series would look much better with the same matte black finish Casio put on the 5600/6900/9000.

That was my understanding...
Mine also, but damn... That atomic one is full of drool! :p :p I'd give up both my MIRB's for that if I could have it right now! b-)

yo guys!

The pictures are deceiving :) it looks good with the pinkish display looking cool like the real black. but when you see the real thing, it looks washed out. Do not buy from looking at the pics dudes, get in close and personal then decide, for those who are thinking of getting one.

Save up and get the Real black, it looks cool under normal light, in the sun its awesome! also the new frog as in all GW-series, is light compared to the Dw-8200 series. You can't feel the solidness. The real back is SOLID mates!

Cheers!

Hi Mike,

Do you mean that the pink LCD display is not very pink? More of a dull pink?

I only saw it from afar..

cheers~

Sparkly finish on the bezel and strap? :roll:

Pink display? :roll:

Doesn't sound "Military Inspired" to me. No, thanks! <|
