I just got an email for a new Frogman that I really liked and wanted to buy. I had no idea they were this expensive. Talk about sticker shock.

frogman limited releases are pricey, and then just go up on the secondary market once they're sold out.
thanks for posting this chris, as i thought these were all gone already (they're already $1500 in secondary market : )

That’s nuts. Besides the fact that they look great, why are they so expensive?

primarily b/c almost all of them are in short supply and high demand as they are "collected" around the world
i'll defer to deepseadiver as our resident expert, but based on what I read they are the only g-shocks that:
- are iso certified (for diving)
- use sapphire crystal
- have stainless or titanium cases (under resin)
- use carbon fiber reinforced straps
- can save dive log storage on watch itself
- have push buttons designed to function at depth
- are actually produced in Japan
does this make it worth $1k+? depends, but probably not to me. do i like the aesthetic of the antarctica rover model way more than any other g-shock model, frogman or not? absolutely : )
