About this deal
Still available for sales directly from Japan on this rare G-Shock Frogman GF-8230E-9JR 30th Anniversary Limited watch that comes with tough solar, 200m waterproof for diving, Moon data, and Tide graph. The strap isn’t especially pliable, but this hasn’t been a problem as the watch should be worn loosely.
The name Casio, rendered in that never-changing font, has the ability to conjure a wide array of nostalgic feelings for people of a certain age. While the Frogman doesn’t deliver notifications, have a touchscreen, or run apps, the Bluetooth connection makes using the watch’s functions quicker and easier, while also adding some relevant functionality to increase the watch’s usefulness. The watch doesn’t have a vibrate feature, so there’s no chance of notification support ever being added.The most interesting thing I find about the dial is that the little insert that says 'tide graph/moon phase' has some granite like texture. The Frogman GWF-D1000B is designed for use by scuba divers, and it combines several core G-Shock and Casio technologies in one watch. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose but only if you consent to such sharing. Casio released their first wristwatch, the perfectly named Casiotron, in 1974, the popularity of which surely played no small part in the impending Quartz Crisis.
While retaining the asymmetric shape of past FROGMAN watches, the GWF-D1000 boasts a crystal made of scratch-resistant sapphire and a wristband reinforced with a carbon fiber insert.The FROGMAN GWF-D1000 represents another major step forward in the evolution of FROGMAN watches, with three precision sensors for measuring water depth, temperature, and compass bearing, and it is designed for use in the toughest environments including marine rescue. We’re conditioned to expect devices to react speedily these days, and the GWF-A1000’s triple dual-core motors that control the hands can keep up with our demands.
The only aspect which may reach the end of its useful life is the app, should Casio decide to alter the way it connects with its watches in the future. Borrowing more than you can afford or paying late may negatively impact your financial status and ability to obtain credit. All the titanium is treated with a deep-layer hardening process and a DLC coating to further increase its strength and abrasion resistance and give it that tough, stealthy look.Master of G is made up of G-Shocks designed for specific professional environments – the first was the 1985 DW-5500C, which was the first Mudman. I managed to ruin the threads of the caseback on my first attempt trying to replace the battery and I ruined the crystal on my second attempt trying to replace the caseback. Lastly, although operating the watch is achieved by pressing the buttons on the side of its case, setting it requires you to unscrew the crown at 3 o’clock, which means that there is zero chance of accidentally disrupting its timekeeping by pressing any of the buttons.
In tide graph mode, the watch displays tide graphs for a selected diving spot along with local time.
