G-SHOCK Adds Third Model To Limited Edition FROGMAN Master of G for 30th Anniversary
The DW-8200NT, originally released in 2000, will be reissued as the third model in the FROGMAN limited edition project to commemorate the milestone anniversary
Singapore, 27 April 2023 – First released in 1993, the G-SHOCK Master of G FROGMAN timepiece made waves for its capability of withstanding the ISO standard of 200 meters to effectively be certified as a dive watch.
This year, as it celebrates 30 years, G-SHOCK is proud to add a third model, GW-8230NT to the Master of G limited edition project to commemorate the milestone anniversary. The DW-8200NT, originally released in 2000, will be reissued as the third FROGMAN GW-8230NT, this time in an unapologetic chilli red applied to both the watch, its box packaging as well as travel soft pouch.
FROGMAN Master of G 30th Anniversary Edition
The DW-8200NT became a popular model following its initial release for its bold, iconic asymmetrical FROGMAN configuration, and the red of its band, bezel, and LCD. The newly reissued model uses biomass plastic for its bezel and band to reduce environmental impact.
A new solar panel more faithfully reproduces the shape of the dial and supports the watch’s Tough Solar power system. A special FROGMAN 30th anniversary logo is engraved on the back cover of the titanium case and appears on the display when illumination is turned on.
On top of water resistance, the model comes with G-SHOCK’s standard specifications of shock resistance, electro-luminescence backlight and afterglow and flash alert that rings with a buzzer sound for alarms and hourly time signals. Other technical features include 1/100-second stopwatch, countdown timer, multi-function alarm, hourly time signal, full auto calendar, 12/24-hour time format and regular timekeeping. They come with an approximate battery life of two years.
The GW-8230NT will be priced at $899 and will be available for purchase at all G-SHOCK stores from 5 May 2023.
