I've been eyeing the GWF1000 for a very long time. Never pulled the trigger on it due to the price back then. I've been checking Amazon time to time and I found one sold for $415. I think that's a killer price for the watch. I wonder if it will get any lower than that....

I'm currently located in Dutch Harbor, AK for work (No, I'm not a fisherman. lol.) and I worry it might get lost on the way. I'm just waiting for confirmation email from Amazon regarding estimated delivery. Can't wait!

Congrats to both of you! You will not be disappointed.

Perhaps the reason the prices are going down is because Casio is now offering the atomic version(GWF) for release in the US, whereas before it was Japan only and the rest of us only got the GF model. I've noticed the prices creeping down since another member (Rocat I believe) pointed out that the GWF was on the US website. Either way I think this a good move for Casio, and great news for us. I'm not certain that it could get any lower but $415 is a smoking hot deal.

Enjoy!

yen is about the same, its the usd thats finally climbing out of the slump its been in for the last 2-3 years, much to my despise!
forking out a bit extra for postage used to be fine when we were on parity but now even with the big sales or discounted used items its barely worth the trouble! not to mention my hopes of attending sdcc this year have been totally dashed! :(


ps. if only the price of rangemans would come down now

pps. i seriously doubt the apple watch would have any affect on G sales let alone the pompousness of a frog! lol

The Yen has nothing to do with the price of this watch unless you import it from Japan. It was recently re-released in GWF format in the US at a MSRP of $700. Anything at or below $450 is a great price for a fantastic watch. Supply exceeds demand at $700 but demand exceeds supply sub-$450. Cheers!

Ah, the infamous Dutch Harbor. You boys are busy during January.

I got lucky with mine, found it on the sales forum last year during the summer for a really great price since the seller was just looking to get rid of it because wasn't wearing it. I was also surfing the sales forum late at night which usually isn't good for my wallet, but this worked out great and now I wonder what took so long to grab one. Definitely a very comfortable watch and unmistakable when seen. Good luck and here is a little look to tie you over till you get it:

IT ARRIVED SAFELY TO DUTCH HARBOR! I was a bit worried that it might get lost on the way. USPS tracking is so unreliable it says its still in transit but it had already arrived my hotel. I was hoping to take some pictures outside but the weather is not great here. The Frogman is definitely worth buying!

I have been debating on getting a frog for a while. The lower pricing made me pull the trigger on one. Should be here in a couple days. Will post pics when it is!
