Casio G-Shock Frogman divers watch

How could a website dedicated to the sale of diver’s watches fail to include a Casio G-Shock. Introduced in 1993 the Frogman series all feature one specific function – a DIVE TIMER. It’s a huge range that covers more than a dozen model numbers – each with several versions (colours etc). Original Casio Frogman from 1993 have the model number DW-6300-n(x) eg the Casio DW-6300-1A. Those models were an all digital affair with no analogue hands.

The new models maintain the classic frogman design providing an incredibly clear divers watch face.

These include Home Time, Dual World Time, tide information, and vital dive time measurement.

Large Luminescent Hands

The ANALOGUE versions of these watches feature a bold design centred around the large, luminescent hour and minute hands. Essentially, these large hands provide excellent readability when under the water. There’s no need to worry about batteries running out either, they are completely solar powered – fully powered by any light source – artificial or natural.

It stands out from other G-Shock as it’s the only ISO 6425 compliant dive watch in the G-Shock range. Along with all the usual G-Shock features the Frogman also generally, but not always, features a Moonphase indicator and Tide Graph.

Top of the range – the GWF-D1000

For the purist – there is also the GWF-D1000. With it’s ALL DIGITAL display it has more in common with the original 1993 model. The opinion on this move from digital to analogue is mized. Yes, it looks good, but is it fit for purpose eg. could it be used to time and record a dive? Thankfully, the customer still has the choice, unfortunately there are more analogue models and just a couple of digital variants.

For me, this is the REAL DEAL Frogman – a watch that pretty much does everything a diver could want it to do – including a DEPTH METER and DIVE TIMER. That is the Casio Series 1000 > Subseries GWF-D1000. Models in this range include GWF-D1000-1 and the the GWF-D1000NV-2, both introduced in 2016.

All time best selling Casio – the F91-W

Before you leave – you might be interested to know that the Casio F91-W is the No1 best selling Casio watch on Amazon – over 50,000 sold! OK, it’s only 30m water resistant so no good for diving, but it’s more than happy getting splashed in the pool or washing the car.
