Casio's shock-resistant watch "G-SHOCK" and another powerful new model were revealed. "GWF-A1000BRT" with the theme of Borneo Rainbow Toad [Borneo Rainbow Frog]. Scheduled to be released around the fall of 2020, the price will be 126,500 yen [tax included], limited to 2,000 pieces.
When it comes to "frogs," of course, the only base model is "G-SHOCK MASTER OF G FROGMAN." Divers watch with waterproof performance for ISO standard 200m diving, announced in May 2020 as a new state,Full analog FROGMAN [GWF-A1000]It is.
And Borneo Rainbow Toad was a phantom frog that was rediscovered in 2011 in Borneo Island in Southeast Asia for the first time in 87 years. It's a pity that I can't post that photo, but a search for "Borneo Rainbow Toad" found some photos. It is also the first time in history to photograph Borneo Rainbow Toad.
The highlight of GWF-A1000BRT is coloring and texture. The unevenness of the etching process, the stainless steel bezel of Rainbow IP, and the multi-colored dial represent the colors and skin feel of Borneo Rainbow Toad. Each rainbow IP has a different shade, so there is no other bezel with the same color. This point also reflects the rarity of the species Borneo Rainbow Toad.
Furthermore, the skeleton urethane material on the bezel is also a point. It is a device that imagines the freshness of the environment where Borneo Rainbow Toad lives. The windshield is sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on the inside.
The frog illustration on the back cover is also a fun that only FROGMAN can offer. The back of the GWF-A1000BRT is engraved with a frog with a new design in the image of Borneo Rainbow Toad. The package is also special.
The GWF-A1000BRT works with smartphones via Bluetooth, and various functions can be easily used from the dedicated application "G-SHOCK Connected". There are automatic time adjustments and world time settings that can be selected from the map, but what is typical of FROGMAN is that you can get diving logs [diving points, dive time, etc.].
