G-SHOCK’s First-Ever Analog FROGMAN Has A Carbon Case, Dive & Tide Modes

Originally introduced in 1993, the first FROGMAN dive watch — the DW-6300 — marked the beginning of what is now a prized member of G-SHOCK’s expansive product ranges, with the horological outfit releasing updated, increasingly technologically-advanced versions over the lineup’s time in production. And for the first time in the FROGMAN’s 27 year history, G-SHOCK has unveiled an analog version of the seafaring timepiece with the new FROGMAN GWF-A1000.

Equipped with oversized hands and functionality for special diving and tide modes, the GWF-A1000’s analog face doesn’t mean this FROGMAN is taking a step backward technologically, with amenities on the watch including radio-controlled time-keeping with automatic adjustment for more than 300 cities, solar powering, and Bluetooth compatibility for connection to G-SHOCK’s smartphone app that has a bevy of pre-set tide point settings from some of the world’s premier dive spots, a smart diving log, and phone finder. Water-resistant to 200-meters (656.1’), the analog FROGMAN is encompassed by an ultra-hardwearing yet lightweight carbon fiber monocoque (Carbon Core Guard) chassis with a special Frog icon case back, sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating, and Super Illuminator LED. Paired with a Fluoroelastomer band and offered in black, red, and navy colors, the GWF-A1000’s availability, release date, has yet to be revealed.
