I was surfing the net today and noticed a baby g frogman for about US $113. I've been interested in getting a Frogman, but they're expensive, and I thought that they'd be huge on my 6.25 inch wrist.

Are the baby g frogmen just smaller, or are they really just "pretend frogmen"? I've tried a search of this forum and couldn't really find the answer...

thanks!

Great pix! thanks, that really helped. I guess I'll get one. Do they have the same functions as real frogmen?

It would be ok if there was a bezel for it that covered the 'Baby-G'.

Stealth it.
It would still be there :think: I would happily wear it if it weren't, or even if it said Club-G, but not Baby-G. I don't think of myself as 'macho' but there is a limit.

Does the baby g frogman have a screwback? I'm thinking of buying one for my girlfriend. Also Fred, where'd you see it for sale? The only place I could find is in Austalia.

I'll have to try to retrace my "internet steps". The australian site had it for about US $135, but there was another US site with it on sale for 95. Unfortunately, I didn't realize at the time that this was a good price, so I didn't bookmark the site! o|

If I find it, I'll post it.
