G-Shock Frogman 30th Anniversary Watch GW-8230B-9A
Dive into the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the G-SHOCK Master of G Frogman family of full-fledged diver’s watches with ISO-standard 200-meter water resistance. The ever-popular second-generation Frogman, the DW-8200, made quite a splash when it launched back in the 1990s1993, with its high-impact asymmetrical design featuring a resin bezel and titanium case. This limited edition reprises the a popular DW-8200B-9A black and gold color scheme while adding high-tech functions to bring state-of-the-art 21st century technology to 1990s design. The back of the titanium case and the LED backlight both display a special Frogman 30th anniversary design.
More than just a revival of this original design, the GW-8230B represents a new evolution — it is the first Frogman to use Earth-friendly biomass plastics in the bezel and band. Add Tough Solar powered by a solar panel designed especially to reproduce the shape of the DW-8200 dial, and you have a special diver’s watch that goes the extra mile to reduce environmental impact.

I am a Frogman fan, so for me, this was a ‘no brained’ purchase. I love the titanium construction. The watch is a typical 8200 series with some cosmetic differences and a different module number. I like the three box icons in which the battery’s power level indicator, is shown. I also like the white LED light. Absolutely recommended if you’re a Frogman fan.
Finally, Scarce & Co is a terrific retailer and Casio supplier. Their prices are competitive and the packing and protection is excellent and shipping is fast.
