New: G-SHOCK Frogman 30th Anniversary Edition GW-8230B-9ADR

Casio releases the remake of the G-SHOCK Frogman for the 30th Anniversary of the first release in 1993. Press release details.

The price for the limited edition G-SHOCK Frogman 30th Anniversary Edition GW-8230B-9ADR is SGD 899 inclusive of GST. As has become customary in Casio G-SHOCK limited editions, the edition size is not stipulated.

First released in 1993, the G-SHOCK Master of G FROGMAN timepiece made waves for its capability of withstanding the ISO standard of 200 metres to effectively be certified as a dive watch. 

This year, as it celebrates 30 years, G-SHOCK is proud to release a new FROGMAN limited edition model that commemorates the milestone by recreating the look of the second-generation FROGMAN DW-8200. The DW-8200 became an instant hit when it was first released thanks to its iconic asymmetrical FROGMAN form and impactful design created by the resin bezel and titanium case.

This new revival model deviates slightly from the original with a bezel and band made of biomass plastic, a first for the FROGMAN series. It also features a new solar panel that more faithfully reproduces the shape of the dial of the DW-8200 and supports the watch’s Tough Solar power system. 

The colouring of the new model, matte black with pale gold, also recreates the look of the popular DW-8200B-9A. Turn the watch over and you’ll find a special FROGMAN 30th anniversary “Shock Resist” logo engraved on the back cover of the titanium case. The logo also appears on the display when the illumination is turned on. 

The model comes with G-SHOCK’s standard specifications of shock resistance, electro-luminescence backlight and afterglow and flash alert that rings with a buzzer sound for alarms and hourly time signals. Other technical features include 1/100-second stopwatch, countdown timer, multi-function alarm, hourly time signal, full auto calendar, 12/24-hour time format and regular timekeeping. They come with an approximate battery life of two years.
