Hello All,
Can anybody tell me if these are the same size and do they wear the same on the wrist?
Also i'm interested in your opinions on what size minimum is required to pull one of these off of course size is subjective as everybody has their own opinion but would appreciate any feedback and pictures would be great!

Thanks

Well, I flipped my Magma frog, but I think it wore a little smaller than my d1000.....Justabe’s pic is pretty representative......my wrist is 7.5”, but my Froggy is on Jaysandkays.....

It looks smaller than the D1000 looking at justabe’s pic unless that’s my eyes playing tricks on me?
Does anybody know the dimensions of each watch?

Not necessarily... I'm sure there are guys here w/wrists your size who have one of those Frogs. Also, there are other models of Frogs that are a bit smaller. GW-225 and GF-8250s, I think....

Yes there's the 8235/50 for example but these don't have MB6 which i would prefer!

I have a flat 7-inch wrist and find the GWF-D1000 on the stock strap to be highly uncomfortable. It's not so much the case size but rather how the stiff CF strap juts out from the case to go over a wet suit. If you have a 6.75-inch wrist it will just feel top-heavy and flop around on your wrist. Don't do it unless you plan to get one of jays 'n kays excellent adapters and use a custom strap that will mold around your wrist better.

Here's mine with the adapter on a black IP metal bracelet:

The GWF-1000s are a tad smaller and more bearable, but these aren't particularly comfortable either, lol. They are great to look at though.

Thanks for your input that pretty much puts pay to me owning one, the older models don’t have MB6 and as my collection consists of squares except one and have been looking at frogman for sometime now love the look and thought every collection deserves a frogman but unfortunately in my case it’s not looking likely now!
