Building on its analogue introduction from last year’s analogue Frogman (GWF-A1000), G-Shock is launching a limited edition Royal Navy x G-Shock Frogman.

The watch is the latest timepiece from G-Shock’s partnership with the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence, which has seen the company launch watches like the Mudmaster, Gravitymaster, and last year’s Frogman.

Like the Mudmaster and Gravitymaster, this year’s model is a limited edition due to the collaboration with one of the armed forces of Britain. To showcase this, there is a special engraving on the back.

This year’s model features design elements inspired by British naval history with inspiration drawn from HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest aircraft carrier ever to serve the Royal Navy. Casio also said that the red, white, and navy colours of the watch were also inspired by the hulls of navy ships.

This year’s analogue watch also features ISO 200m diver-level water resistance in a carbon fibre reinforced monocoque case integrated with its back cover. It also weighs only 125g.

The Diving and Tide modes from the previous model also return. The Frogman can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth so that these modes can also be used in conjunction with the G-Shock Connected App so users can access a dive log and track tide levels at various locations around the world.

As befitting a top-grade G-Shock, it is made with sapphire crystal, comes with Tough Solar power charging, and Multi-Band 6 automatic radio timekeeping support.

The G-Shock Frogman GWF-A1000RN-8ADR will be available online at the G-Shock store and at all G-SHOCK stores for S$1,299 from 21 May 2021.
