Just received my late delivery of two frogs, the 1000B and 8200NT2. I took their old brothers out for comparison. I am not sure whether other members have done it before. Anyway, for your reference.

Let's start from 1000 first:


outer boxes


Inner boxes


Watches inside boxes


Side view: please note the two-tone colour of the 1000 where the 1000B is all black


Another side view: the difference in letter colour and push buttons


Band and bezel


Caseback: 1000B


Caseback: 1000


Buckles: The silver is 1000 while the black is 1000B


Wrist shotb-)


Accessaries

Which one I like the most? My answer is:





Next is my NT vs NT2:


Outer boxes


Inner boxes: NT has the letters 'Frogman 2000'


Frogs in boxes


Frogs out of the boxes


Frogs in hand


Frogs jump out of my hand


Caseback: No serial number, only NT2 punched on the caseback


Caseback: NT with limited number out of 1000


See the black coating on the titanium:-!


Wrist shotb-)


Another wrist shotb-)b-)

In summary, only the caseback is different. If it is for wear, buy NT2 because it is cheaper. If you are a serious frog collector, NT is your choice because it is one of the rarest frogs in the pond. But if you are a die hard frog collector, then buy both.:-d

Cheers,

Wah

Nice loot Wah Wah |>

The Red DW-8200NT Frogman was supposed to be the only Frogman ever produced without the set recommended retail price and serial number. From what I heard it was meant to be 'given' away as a Casio company gift in special occasions, and not for retail.

Out of those 4 (no matter how expensive the 1000/1000B are) the NT would be my pick, by its value and collector's significance it simply overshadows the other 3.

Gotta say, you have some thin wrists there, those Frogmans look huge on you ;-)

Enjoy !

This is THE reason I decided that I will not pursue one of these even when I found the 1JF at a 'bargain' USD450 shipped recently.

I have a 6.75" wrist and the curve on the 8200 is borderline for me already.

Gotta say, you have some thin wrists there, those Frogmans look huge on you ;-)

Enjoy !

Yes, if I could only choose one from the above four, it would be NT.

The frogs are quite outstanding on my wrist, which is what I want.:-d

i prefer the 1000 series but the color's on some of the 8200's makes them more interesting but if i had to pick one it would be the standard 1000, so far :)

Hi Wah,

I must have somehow missed your post. What great new Frogs are added to your collection. You are probably the only one I can think of that would buy both new Frogs.

The details of both 8200NT's are great. The photo's are simply stunning. I love red, and specially the 8200NT red....:p

Cheers,

Sjors
