As part of G-Shock’s Master of G Series, the amphibious Frogman is the only model certified by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for 200M water resistance. Complete with an offset face for added comfort and unique look, the GWF1000-1 also includes Dive Time Measurement Mode to measure the total time spent underwater, time spent on the surface (surface interval) as well as memory log to record dive times which are essential functions for any avid diver.

Visually stunning and bold in its appearance, Frogman also features shock resistance, a tide graph and moon graph for the ultimate in tracking high and low tides, advanced Non-Stop Tough Solar Power and Self-Adjusting Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping Technology.

Non-Stop Tough Solar Power – A tiny, solar panel combined with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly.  The result is an impressive solar timepiece that assures highly accurate and reliable timekeeping and that greatly reduces the need for battery change.  

Self-Adjusting Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping Technology  – Receives time calibration signals automatically from up to 6 transmitters around the world (US, Germany, UK, 2 in Japan and China) and updates settings accordingly for pinpoint accuracy.  This technology even adjusts for Leap Year and Daylight Saving Time.  With Casio’s Atomic Timekeeping Technology, you will always have ultimate precision.

“The Frogman has long been a classic look for G-Shock,” said Shigenori Itoh, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “Adding advanced technology makes GWF1000-1-Frogman a highly sought after timepiece.
