Designed in conjunction with the Royal Navy, the watch has been built to accommodate the hostile environments faced by naval personnel - at sea and on land - using a Carbon Core Guard structure.
The special edition timepiece features design elements directly inspired by British naval history. The unique aesthetic takes inspiration from HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest aircraft carrier ever to serve the Royal Navy. Here the Royal Navy’s instantly recognisable colour palette of red, white and navy is used to striking effect, alongside the contrasting light grey which replicates the ship’s hull.
DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
ISO 200-Meter Diving Water Resistance
The monocoque case integrates the case with its back cover. Carbon fibre reinforced resin is used for the case material, offering high strength and low absorbency. In addition, six screws securely fasten the metal ring that is press-fit to the glass. Enhanced water resistance is facilitated by the button shafts' triple-gasket fittings. The back case is engraved with a frog character holding an analogue watch hand.
Analog Watch Display
A first for the FROGMAN: an analogue display. The over-sized dimensional index and hour and minute hands offer improved readability. Three dual-coil motors enable the hour, minute and world time hands to move rapidly so the wearer can switch modes with no delay.
The fluoroelastomer material provides an excellent fit on the wrist with its soft feel, not to mention exceptional resistance to staining and hydrolysis.
Engraved with a bespoke naval version of the G-SHOCK frog character.
1. The hour and minute hands can be brought together as one at the start of a dive to indicate the diving time.
2. After resurfacing will display the surface interval using both hands. The second hand moves forward or in reverse to indicate the status of the dive time and surface interval measurements.
The inset dial at the 3 o'clock position displays tide data for a specified location and date. The inset dial at the 8 o'clock position shows the current local time. The app comes pre-set with some of the world's major diving spots. Tide points can be set with ease.
Super Illuminator (High-Brightness LED Light)
The Super Illuminator function lights up the watch face with high-intensity light, to ensure readability in the dark.
Bluetooth® + Radio-controlled, solar-powered timekeeping
Time correction is conducted by either Bluetooth® communications or standard time radio wave (Multi Band 6), depending on the circumstances. Reception of the most recent time zone and Daylight Saving Time information assures that the correct time is displayed at all times.
Sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating
To ensure high readability, a non-reflective coating is applied to the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
