G-SHOCK has dropped two new Frogman models as part of its Master of G collection, both secured on lightweight composite bracelets.

The new pieces are both analogue GWF-A1000 models and feature stainless steel bracelets with resin centre links to save on weight. As part of G-SHOCK’s professional Master of G series, both come with a discrete extension mechanism within the clasp that allows the watches to be worn over a wet suit and can then be folded away for normal wear.

Both models feature the Frogman’s asymmetrical design that has been at the heart of the model since its launch in 1993, are water resistant to 200m and use a monocoque, front-loading case.

The GWF-A1000C features a blue ion-plated stainless steel bezel, vivid yellow second hand and resin centre links in its bracelet, while the GWF-A1000XC opts for a black and orange colorway using resin-laminated carbon fibre bezel and bracelet centre links.

Both pieces are available now via G-SHOCK UK, priced £899 GBP ($1,274 USD) and £1,149 GBP ($1,628 USD) respectively.
