I've always liked the clear Frogs especially the 9900 series mainly because the "Frogman" text on the bezel is on the right. Unfortunately, the clear plastics tends to turn yellowish with age. So my favorites are clear 9900's.

Mr. Buzzbait, if you are reading this post, do you think I can dye this type of clear plastic and if so, what type of dye should I use? Will the RIT dye you use work on this? I want to turn this into a yellowish or reddish jelly. Sorry to hijack this thread...;-)

Yes. RIT dye works wonderfully on clear resin bezels. Just remember that the bezel will always be translucent in color, even after dying. The bezel will never be opaque in color.

watchluver, the Real black froggy looks really good.
saw it up on sale once, but too expensive to own.
almost as rare as a brazilian!

good! :-!

I don't like the Brazilian, it's my least favourite, as it's not recommended for daily wearing due to the "fragile" camo print. I don't want to see my expensive G-Shock get ruined so easily for the purpose of wearing it. So the RB is great to wear and the in thing now for watches is stealth, even luxury watches like Bell&Ross has an All-Black model.

Thank you Sir :-! A translucent red will be nice I think (after looking at Sjor's lovely red metallic Froggy). Will it look like the picture below u think? I have to check the craft shops in Singapore, I hope have they have this brand.
