I reckon anything under $500 is a fair price for one in good nick and with everything included. $500 is actually what I paid for mine.

I would say that these days if you find a Carbon Fibre NOS condition for $500 that would be a true bargain. These days it is in the $1000-$2000 range!

Its one of the most expensive Frogmans out there, very rare it is!:rodekaart

the last one I saw sold was at seiko5ers:

It was sold for $2000!

This is what it looks like when the carbon fiber paint wears off on the strap after a good 5 years of wear...



Shocking, isn't it...?

So to say this carbon fibre watch is for display only and not designed to be worn?
Most likely after 5years with regular usage most resin will deteriorate. Still thinking whether to buy it, it's a very beautiful watch....

Actually resin will last a lot longer than 5 years even with daily wear. It's the painted surface that will start showing signs of wear, scuff marks etc.

I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, or you could always get one of the non-painted Frogmans, they're still around even as BNIB.
