Casio Celebrates 40 Years of G-Shock and 30 Years of Frogman with Limited-Edition MR-G Frogman MRGBF1000E1A
Casio is celebrating two major milestones in 2023: the 40th anniversary of the original G-Shock watch and the 30th anniversary of its dedicated Frogman diving collection. To commemorate these events, Casio has introduced the Casio G-Shock MR-G Frogman MRGBF1000E1A, a limited edition of just 700 pieces.
The MRGBF1000E1A pays homage to the inaugural Frogman DW6300 model by featuring the same shade of yellow. However, it departs from the original by adopting an all-analog dial and a more contemporary design, in line with G-Shock's top-tier MR-G designation.
The titanium case measures nearly 50mm in width and 18.6mm in thickness, and it is complemented by a vibrant yellow fluoro-rubber Dura Soft strap. The watch is also equipped with a DLC-coated titanium bracelet with a diver's extension.
The MRGBF1000E1A is a true dive watch, with 200 meters of water resistance and ISO certification. It is powered by Casio's 5702 module, which includes diving-specific features such as dive time measurement, tide graphs, surface interval display, and a dedicated diving log. The watch also has a 1/100-second stopwatch, countdown timer, daily alarms, dual time zone display, Bluetooth connectivity, and Tough Solar movement.
The MRGBF1000E1A is an exclusive edition, each piece stamped with a unique serial number. It comes in a specially designed box, accompanied by the DLC-coated titanium bracelet and a DLC-coated stainless steel bracelet mounting tool. The watch is priced at $6,400 USD and is available for purchase through select retailers and directly from Casio's online platform.
