About this deal

Take it a step further with the G-Steel range, which combines G-Shock standards of toughness with refined and high quality materials, whilst the Master of G has evolved to take on the toughest conditions in the sky, on the land and out at sea. The Super Illuminator function lights up the watch face with high-intensity light, to ensure readability in the dark. For the new EQB-1000D, Casio has retained the same connected feature set it used in other Bluetooth-enabled Edifice watches. Determined to prevent this heartbreak from happening to others, in 1981, he set out to create a watch that would stand up to the rigours of everyday life. Once you get back to the surface, a two-second hold of a button puts you in dive interval mode, which starts measuring your timing between dives; useful if you are going back underwater soon and need to do old-school deco calculations.

While the original Frogman was a completely digital watch, Casio also now makes versions that feature full-analog displays, and the new G-Shock MR-G Frogman MRGBF1000R1A is of the later variety, with multi-function hands and sub-dials responsible for tracking all of its various operations. 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.

Pure titanium is treated with a deep-layer hardening process, DLC coating and gold-coloured ion plating for even greater strength. Half of that time is complete darkness at night, and I am glad to report that my watch is still on the H level. The dial itself embraces a largely dark gray and blue color profile with bright white luminous hands and hour markers, along with a date window at the 4:30 location.

While its dimensions make it an objectively large watch, the use of titanium for the case helps to keep its weight down, and since the Frogman series is designed to be worn over the sleeve of a wetsuit, the rather large size of the MRGBF1000R1A ultimately makes quite a lot of sense from a functional standpoint. For example, when set to diving mode, the hour and minute hands will stack on top of each other and move in unison to increase legibility while tracking elapsed time.The Frogman GWFA1000-1A2 (or in Japan as GWF-A1000-1A2JF) is a premium and highly functional dive watch designed for professional divers and water sports enthusiasts. I am wearing a g shock because the very reason that I don't want the fragility of mechanical watches AND I don't find the modern digital watches appealing at all.

The watch satisfies ISO standards for water resistance, including button operability underwater, enabling its use for diving. Since I have shat on the GWF-D1000(not really) I am going to lay some waste on the GWFA-1000 and tell you why I don't like it.It’s well-designed, fast, stable, and provides an easy way to change various features on the watch, in addition to managing dive-specific features.
